Very considerate and knowledgeable guide service. Highly recommend. Kelcie was awesome.

We booked this tour at the last minute and are so glad we did. Kenzie was awesome - she made us feel safe and comfortable, plus was great to chat with on the hike back to the van. This was such a wonderful experience and I could not recommend it more!

We had a terrific time floating the river with the guides of Red River Adventures. The team demonstrated and explained safety precautions and how to maneuver in the raft. They served a made on site chicken Caesar salad. Just when started to get hot there would rapids so we could cool off a bit. The staff was exceptional.

I booked a 1-day guided climbing tour with Red River Adventures and I had an amazing time! My guide, Jon, was super knowledgeable and enthusiastic. He asked about my goals for the day were and helped me choose areas and climbs that worked for me. The owner, Carl, was helpful in making it work for me even though I didn't have a car. I definitely recommend Red River Adventures for climbing in UT.

Red River Adventures really went above and beyond with our excursion. Between the thoroughness of explaining the trip and safety protocols, the healthy lunch provided and the tour guide (June) we had an exceptional time and will for sure recommend to anyone we meet that is heading to Moab. Thank you for since an enjoyable trip :)

First timers, outdoor, multi-pitch full day climbing experience- Brian, our SLC guide, was incredibly friendly, knowledgeable and patient. His expertise allowed us to know exactly what he was doing while he guided us up routes that were appropriate for our skill level. The day few by and we enjoyed it so much that we plan on making a return guided trip with Brian.

Kenzie was our guide and was fabulous. She talked down someone starting to panic perfectly and they were smiling to do the next rappel. She made the trip very enjoyable talking with all 4 parties and balancing her time with everyone, which i found impressive. She was very knowledgeable and made everyone feel safe. It was a great canyoneering route with small and big challenges. A great day for everyone. Would definitely use this guide service again.

Best money I’ve ever spent! Couldn’t recommend crack camp enough. Mary, Sam and Britney were the best instructors I’ve ever had. The photographers were equally amazing as well. So much valuable knowledge passed down that I’m incredibly grateful for. I got everything I wanted and much more out of this crack camp. Will be returning for sure.

When booking our trip to Moab, we decided we wanted to do a couple of guided adventures. After researching local guiding companies, Red River was exactly what we were looking for. One day we went rock climbing with Brian at Looking Glass Arch. Brian was an awesome guide and made the experience very enjoyable for us! We just wish it was longer! The next day Charbo took us canyoneering to Morning Glory. The hike in, the rappels, and the hike out were great! Charbo was super knowledgeable and made everyone feel comfortable in the group. The whole process from booking the trips to showing up and being taken out was simple and efficient. I won’t hesitate to use them again the next time we are in Moab! Thanks again!

Oscar Hackworth was our Colorado rafting guide. He was next level! A five star, even “ten stars!” kind of guide. From his witty humor to his breadth of knowledge on historical information, our trip on the river was fun and interesting. Only wish we had more time with him such as like on a two day rafting trip. Would recommend!

John, an IFMGA Certified Mountain Guide led a backcountry tour for me today. It was a full on mountain adventure with extreme weather. My kind of day in the mountains. John is the epitome of what a guide should be. He is extremely personable, patient, fit, and a master of his profession. A Guide full of experience and knowledge. I learned an incredible amount of information today on mountain travel and avalanche related topics. He took the time to explain and ensure I understood the topics. He also shared tips and techniques that made my experience a 10 out of 10. I plan to hire John in the future. You can’t go wrong asking for John. He’s amazing!

Honestly one of the best classes I’ve take, Jake and Vic are both through educators and great guides. If you’re looking to take a AIARE course these guys are great! I left feeling more prepared to deal with avalanche problems and identifying risks in the backcountry.

I had a great time with John at Red River Adventures doing a ski tour yesterday. We skied around Cardiff Fork in the Wasatch, he’s a tremendous guide, such attention to detail, I’ve gone on nearly a dozen trips with him. He and Carl at Red River make a dynamic team. They do rock climbing, skiing, alpine climbing, river guiding, you name it they do it. Keep it up folks!

Out of random coincidence, Sam had led me up a trail last year and strongly suggested I take this course, which was AWESOME! The experience and passion she and Jake bring to getting humans back safely and stoked is unparalleled. And the resources they walk you through and make available are profound. Can’t recommend Red River and these two strongly enough. If you’re serious about backcountry, this is an absolute must. I also really liked the small class size. Made a big difference. Looking forward to practicing my beacon finding at the resort.

No need to waste time reading this review when you could already be on their website signing up, but I suppose it's your time to waste, so here's the deal. A couple weeks ago, my friend suggested we go rafting in Moab together. She had previously done a trip with Red River Adventures a while back and loved it, so it seemed like a safe bet for my inaugural float. Simple sign up, fair prices, and knowledgeable guides. Pretty much a no-brainer. It totally held up. We had a blast with our guide, the absolutely incredible Molly. Her witty humor and kindness were only matched by her knowledge of the area and of the river itself. Between the named rapids, of which she had complete and utter control over, she kept the group entertained with fun little facts about the local geography, wildlife, and surrounding community. It was an even better experience than I had hoped for. One and only one complaint: On our way back to our vehicles after the trip, Molly gave our group some recommendations for restaurants in the area, including burgers at Milt's. It sounded like the perfect place for my friend and I to grab a quick bite on our way out of town since we were running short on time, so we stopped by. They were "temporarily closed." Molly, burgers are on you next time I see ya. ;)
