We had a wonderful time with our guide, Gabby. Our two kids (5 and 12) learned a lot and did some really fun and challenging rappelling. Gabby went through all the safety features and we did practice rappelling first to make sure that we were all ready to go. Gabby was fun, patient, extremely safe and all around amazing, particularly with our kids. She gave us options throughout the day with a range of different rappelling heights and sizes. Gabby was very patient, never rushed us or worried about the amount of time we were spending on our 1/2 day canyoneering, which turned out to be 5 hours.

I also highly recommend Rock Odysseys for being super flexible and accommodating. We had booked for a Saturday morning but realized our schedule would not actually allow us to do so. Rock Odysseys rebooked for Friday afternoon and even called in Gabby on her day off. This was amazing customer service and I thank both Rock Climbing and Gabby for being so flexible. Rock Odysseys also has a very easy online booking system, whereas the other companies also looked good but require calling to schedule. We could also sign waivers online, which made it seamless.

This was definitely a highlight of our trip and we'd definitely use Rock Odysseys (and Gabby) again.

Since this trip was a surprise, I was unaware my husband had been working with this company for months. Little did we know that the weather was going to change from 70 to 30 so our guide, Gabby, reached out to see if we would like to change to a forecasted warmer day of the week. She picked us up on time and was a great host. Since we have daughters near her age and have never had this experience, the natural first thought is what are we doing?!? Please don’t let this deter you. Gabby was an exemplary Guide who was extremely knowledgeable, articulated directions well, passionate about her job and patient as an instructor. She was both encouraging and firm which made us extremely comfortable. We’re hikers and love the outdoors but are not climbers...this was a first. I would like to think that our Guide represents the company she works for as a whole. Well trained, passionate and invested in sharing the knowledge. Definitely give them a call!

We only had a short time in Zion. This was a great way to experience hiking, climbing & rappelling all in one. Our guide, Gabby, was awesome. We had a lot of fun with her.

Looked at a few companies that did canyoneering in the Zion area, and Rock odysseys reviews came up the best in the area. Myself and my wife had never done anything like this before and were very excited to have a new adventure, we were not disappointed!
Our guide Gabby was amazing, and helpful. We did 6 ( I Believe ) rappels, and everyone was better than the first. We will be back, maybe to try the full day vs the half day! Thanks very much Gabby!
