Afternoon adventure
, Nov 2021
This was a great adventure. We hiked and rappelled the Tom’s thumb trail which had some spectacular views. Nick was a super friendly and helpful guide. We felt safe, plenty of water, he knew all the folks hiking and climbing around us. If you’re looking to experience arizona in a more adventurous way, this is a great way to do it.
Epic Adventures was for sure EPIC!!

Nick was our guide to the top of our rappelling spot. Little endurance needed to get to the top each time but so worth it! Rappelled 3 times, husband got 5 in!!!

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.
