The whole trip, from top to bottom, had been amazing. Challenging for sure, yet safe and well organized. We even got a BBQ at the end to warm ourselves up! And the photos to show off! Thank you so much Canyonz! Cleo and Glen

This was a great day out. The scenery was amazing and our guides Russ and Ryan were good fun as well as very professional and safety conscious. I would recommend to anyone with even a slight sense of adventure.
