Eric took me & some friends on our first rappelling trip around Zion in 2010. I returned in 2014 to take my 11 year old son in his first rappelling trip to Water Canyon. I had 100% faith in Eric with my son's safety. It...More

Can’t say enough about this trip - simply fantastic! Professional,punctual, friendly staff. Fabulous selection of canyons. Great guidance for novices. Good value considering 4x4 drive to canyons, equipment and guidance. Highly recommend Red Desert.

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.

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!
