We had Dan as a guide for a canyoning/rappelling adventure in the Kolob Canyon last week. My wife & kids (12 and 10) had previously done Zip lining and rappelling in Costa Rica, so we knew that we were comfortable rappelling. Dan was quite knowledgeable about the geology and the local trails. We felt very confident in his abilities/knowledge, and... More

We booked a half day canyoneering trip near Zion with Eric and it was terrific. He was very safety oriented, knowledgeable about the area and entertaining to spend time with. We had a terrific time and wished that we would have booked a full day tour.

Red Desert made Zion gave my boyfriend and I the behind the scenes tour of Zion. Eric and Tacy were quick to respond with simple, inclusive information about their adventures. Jeremy was our guide for a 1/2 day canyoneering trip. He knew all kinds of crazy factoids - from local plant life to gear capability and recommendations and. He kept... More

We did a full day canyoneering trip and had Matt as our guide. He was awesome..knowledgeable, friendly, with a very even, calm demeanor that helped settle our fears about trying canyoneering for the first time. I trusted him completely which made it easy to follow his directions and relax and enjoy the experience. I highly recommend Red Desert Adventure!

My husband and I reserved two half day excursions. One half day was spent canyoneering and the other half day was spent rock climbing. We had a wonderful experience doing both activities. The activities were done outside of Zion National Park, so we were able to experience something different. Our guide, Joe, was excellent. Very informative and stressed safety at... More

We had a blast canyoneering with Red Desert Adventure. Who needs coffee when you get to peer over the edge of a hugely vertical cliff and then be invited to rope down the doggone thing? We truly enjoyed this experience and hope to return sooner than later. Ask for Nathan or Matthew as you guides. Both these young men will... More

My husband and I had an awesome first experience canyoneering and now we are hooked. Our guide was so patient with us and even taught me how to down-climb through parts of the canyon where a rope was not needed. He also taught us how to use the equipment. For one of the rappels we just used a tree to... More

Hiking in a beautiful canyon, great rappelling, but best of all - Joe. What a great guide! Quick wit, supportive, and very knowledgeable. He even made the car... More

Our guide, who was very knowledgeable and competent took us to an exclusive spot to rappel down three drops, the first of which was quite long and the other too quite difficult in terms of narrow entry. Our 2 kids had a ball (aged 8 and 11) getting covered in clay and slipping around down inside the canyon. We even... More

We just go back from our trip to Utah. Signed up with Red Desert Adventure for a canyoneering tour. We had a fantastic time. Eric was very professional and put us at ease right away. We totally trusted him despite the heights we rappelled. I was a beginner and it was an amazing experience. We did a 100ft rappell in... More
