We absolutely loved our canyoneering trip with Gaar! It was definitely the highlight of our trip. Gaar was fantastic and when we return for more canyoneering adventures we will be seeking him out. Thank you for a great adventure!

I had originally planned to hike out in the early morning dark to Delicate Arch for photos but rethought that (not wanting to end up in the news or lost) and after a lot of research ended up going with Eric on a scrambling/rappelling hike in the morning and Arches Photography in the late afternoon. What a great choice! The entire day was a personalized and unique guided tour - like going out with a super knowledgeable friend who is patient and will show you “off the beaten path” places that are incredibly beautiful yet away from the crowds. We had a lot of fun that day and I got some great pictures and photography tips. I would definitely recommend Eric and Windgate Adventures and will use them again if we are out that way (maybe even do some more serious climbing if I am brave enough!).

Honestly, do yourself a favor and plan your entire trip to Moab around Eric's availability - best tip I can give my fellow Moab travelers! Eric's tour of "Land Before Time" was hands down the highlight of our weekend (and we packed in a LOT). Even on the super busy 3-day holiday weekend, Eric took us to a place where it felt like we had the desert entirely to ourselves. The rappelling was incredible, the scenery was beautiful, and Eric took great action shot photos for us all day. Eric is super friendly, knowledgeable, encouraging, and generally loves his "job" - such a fun guy to hang out with for the day. He even took extra time to drive us around after our tour to show us some other things nearby. Eric was a wealth of knowledge on things to do in Moab and gave us a bunch of recommendations. Unlike some of the other guide businesses in Moab, Eric has been living/guiding in Moab for nearly13 years, and truly gives you the expert local experience. If you are going to let a stranger drive you out into the desert and drop you off a 170 foot cliff approximately 45 minutes after meeting said stranger, Eric the guy you want holding the safety line!

My wife and I were truly lucky to have had the opportunity to climb Ancient Art with Eric of Windgate Adventures. We have gone on many different guided climbs, but this is really a once in a lifetime adventure. The climb, the views, the experience is amazing. I can not say enough about Eric. Great knowledge of the area, tremendous climbing expertise, and his enthusiasm and love for climbing is contagious! Couldn’t recommended this trip more and would love to go out and climb again.

This was an unbelievable trip in so many ways - the beauty of the area, physical challenge, and adventure of rappelling. But what made the trip extraordinary was the knowledge, professionalism and good nature of our guide, Eric. Eric knew every plant, rock, weather pattern etc, and shared his knowledge in an intersting and friendly manner. He was also clearly a highly skilled and knowledgable at canyoneering and rappelling, and made that backward step over the edge comfortable. Thanks for an awesome experience!!! I would highly recommend it.
