Sam! Pick Sam! I cannot say enough enough about our day. I was clearly the weakest link in our family of 5 (ranging from 13 to 53...I was somewhere near the top;) The trip was definitely challenging but undoubtedly the best money we have ever spent. So rewarding. Sam felt like family. He was funny, personable and comforting all at the same time. All 5 of us in this adventure-seeking family agree that this was the coolest day we have ever had. Just trust us...do it!!!

Overall outstanding service. From our initial phone call with Mike, who took the time to describe the various tours they offer, while getting to know us and what we were looking to get out of the trip. Our guide, Sylvan, was fantastic!! He provided history of the area while teaching us several aspects of canyoneering and rappelling. He always made us feel safe and willing to try the next step. We highly recommend Moab Canyon Tours!

First trip to Moab and first time in a canyon. My guide Sam was amazing. He made me feel safe and relaxed the whole time. The canyon itself was amazing. I came to Moab for rock climbing but am leaving obsessed with coming back to explore more canyons. I will definitely be calling these guys when I come out!

Our guide Sam says this everyday he is in the canyons and the energy is contagious. Just finished 2 awesome days of canyon adventures and camping out in the high desert. Highly recommend doing overnight option as it gets you out of Moab and allows for watching sunsets, hanging out by the fire, and soaking in the full desert experience. This is the third trip that we had Mike organize for us... and he is part of the family now. Great challenge, great fun, we will be back. Thanks Mike and Sam!

We just completed a 3/4 day canyoneering trip with Moab Canyon Tours. What a phenomenal day! We are a family of four beginners (2 adults mid-50s and two teens ages 14 and 16). We originally booked on Friday, but our tour was cancelled on Friday morning due to pouring rain and thunder storms. I very much appreciated Moab’s concern for safety. Fortunately for us our tour guide Sylvan had Saturday off and offered to take us the next morning instead. We did a trip called Rock of Ages. The trip involved a hike into the canyon, some ascent up and three rappels down. As many of the crevices were filled with water from the previous day’s rain making our way through the canyon was challenging, but Sylvan was amazing and we managed to have us do the whole thing without getting wet. Sylvan is the perfect guide, the perfect balance of highly professional yet relaxed. We always felt encouraged and never felt rushed. Despite the height of the rappels we always felt safe and in excellent hands. The canyon was spectacular and the fact that we had it completely to ourselves was very special. It was an amazing experience all around and definitely the highlight of our trip to Southern Utah. Our thanks to Sylvan and Mike at Moab Canyon Tours for the experience of a lifetime!
