    Kurt (our guide) was funny, knowledgeable, and kept a good lookout for us all, without making the trip feel slow or weird.

    We had a great time on our tour. The level of attention we received from our guide was top notch. John made sure we were comfortable and safe. We definitely would do this again.

    We had a blast!!! the clues were hard, but not so hard that we couldn't figure out most of them. Even though we didn't escape, we had a great time and would definitely go back. Thanks for your attention to detail and making it feel safe and clean!

    We had 6 people work the Hyde room, and it was somewhat challenging, but clearly not hard. I think a great starter room. Some clever ideas, and decorated nicely.

    Was a great experience. The guides were a lot of fun and very accommodating. We had 10 people in our group and all had a great time.

    I LOVED this adventure! Our instructor, Leo, was knowledgeable and fun, and he did a great job helping us be comfortable using the equipment (even though I have very little climbing experience). The hike was lovely, and the climb was one of the most unique adventures I’ve ever had. I enjoyed the physical challenge and thought the instructor did a great job meeting each participant where they were at. It was rainy so we didn’t get to see a sunset, but the view from the top was worth it regardless. I definitely recommend this activity and hope to do it again!

    Entering the iFLY lobby we were met by a friendly guy at the counter. From there it only got better. We were greeted warmly by everyone and that helped make the "flying" experience even better than I thought it could be.
    We were shown a safety video, given flight suits and helmets, and all questions we're answered. Then Chad stepped into the "wind tunnel" and off I went after him.
    There was never a moment of feeling unsafe or out of control. Chad was GREAT! So patient and calming, always smiling and helpful.
    The BEST feeling was when I first stepped to the door to go into the "wind tunnel" and leaned forward...and didn't fall. Just. Too. Cool!
    We're going again as soon as we can.

    My friends and I had a blast at Hour to Midnight! We did the Pharaoh room and it was very well done - great aesthetic, excellent production quality, and really creative puzzles. Perfect size for our team of 6. We had a mix of escape room newbies and experienced players on our team and this room was great for everyone. I have personally played over 40+ rooms around the world and I can confidently say that this was one of the best.

    Staff were really accommodating and friendly - we were able to add 2 additional players at the door seamlessly. Communicating with staff via email was easy as well. Shoutout to our wonderful Game Master Sharidan, who was so friendly and helpful with clues and with explaining our game before we began. Thank you so much Sharidan :)

    This was my first backing trip since High School and I did not know what to expect. The people were fantastic. Anastasia was my guide and she was very patient and so helpful. Even thou I was unable to finish I loved the trip and will finish the trip next year. I would recommend Rare Earth Adventures to anyone. They are so helpful and they don't charge if you need some equipment.

    Use Embark for all of your adventuring!! My husband and I climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro in Feb. 2022 and had an amazing experience!! The campsites were fantastically set for us upon arrival each evening, the guides helped us overcome every obstacle while hiking, the food was delicious, and the tents were high quality and professionally staked to keep us dry. Our guides, Fredrick and Evance, were friendly and knowledgeable every step of the way. Their expertise got us to the top and back down safely. Every single porter and member of our team was wonderful!! Donovan and Carrie in the US Embark office as well as Freddie in the Moshi office helped us to arrange every detail leading up to and during our trip. We could not have asked for a better experience. Embark definitely cares not only for their clients, but also for every person they employ. We send a huge thank you to everyone!!

    Went crocodile feeding with captain Adam with , granny , kids aged 7, 5, 4, and 11 week old with 4 adults. Date 18/11/2020 and we had a great time and the kids just loved seeing the crocs jumping out of the water and we were lucky enough to see big Brutis 90yrs old. He is massive !!

    Captain Adam was awesome with the kids and very knowledgeable.

    Definitely recommend

    We absolutely loved our helicopter flight around Seaside and Cannon Beach! Tyler, our pilot, was just great. I could have stayed up all afternoon, and the price was so affordable! Highly recommend this tour… we took the 15 minute tour but could easily have stayed up.
