My husband and I had a great full day canyoneering trip for my birthday with Jack exploring two canyons near Mt. Carmel. He was both patient and knowledgeable about canyoneering and interesting and informative about the area. I highly recommend both Jack and Red Desert.

Don't miss out on seeing the back country in this way. We saw rock patterns that we surely would have never experienced had we not done this. Yes...it was expensive but really worth the memories. Jack had some historical knowledge which he shared with us....More

7 year old, for sure. I don't have kids so I can't tell about the younger ones. Our guide told us that he's taken kids as young as 3 and adults as old as 80 - so call and ask them. Have fun!
