Our guide Bob was extremely knowledgeable and kind. He safely taught us the correct ways to repell as well as challenged us and adapted our guide to our interests.

Bob was amazing! He was fun, friendly and knowledgeable! We had 4 people in our group (2 adults and 2 children) and I felt safe the whole time. (As a mom, I always worry!) I would highly recommend Bob and the rappelling adventure to anyone!

Bob was a great guide. He quickly adjusted to the fitness levels of each of us in our group. He was supportive and patient and ensured we felt comfortable with the rappelling. The piece that could have made this better would be to include in the instructions that it is a hike but you will be scaling boulders and should wear more than just a tennis shoe. Our first time down, we were not given gloves and hands burned from the ropes. But all in all was a good experience, something we had never done before and not sure if we’d do again. We weren’t prepared for this with tennis shoes and shorts.

The views are wonderful and the rappelling was safe and fun. Initially, my wife and I thought it might be too much for us we are 61 and 58 but that was not the case. If this is on your bucket list to do, this booking/guide is the way to go.

This adventure made our visit to AZ so memorable and exciting! The guide, Jose, is exceptionally nice, and makes you feel as though you've known him forever! He's professional, extremely knowledge, and patient. Anyone looking for an exciting outdoor adventure should sign up and go. You won't regret it!

This tour and its operator, EPIC Adventures, was fantastic. Safety was paramount and after a trial run, our tour guide had us comfortably rappelling down a 75 foot rock formation in no time. The views while rappelling are awe inspiring, so be sure to take time to breathe, and take in the natural beauty while on the way down. The toughest thing about the adventure, if you are not part mountain goat, or someone with above average upper body strength, is climbing back up the mountain after each rappel. The feeling of accomplishment you get and the exhilaration of the descent does help you forget how hard the climb back up really is. Our tour guide has many years of experience and is very patient and kind. We took this tour on the spur of the moment and are we glad we did. It is certainly a bucket list worthy experience, even if it's not on your current'll certainly add it after the fact. It's a wonderful way to experience the mountains of Scottsdale up close and personal!
