  • We had an amazing time in Moab, Utah with Melissa. We hired her as a private guide to explore for my birthday. She is such a sweetheart and an amazing guide! She pays attention to detail and every part of our journey was well thought out. I'd definitely hire her again for future trips!
  • Had a great trip! Did the Medieval Chamber rappels. The awesome thing is it was just the two of us and the guide so it felt very personalized. The actual rappels were a blast, esp the free rappel down Morning Glory... at the end I was wishing we had booked a longer trip with more. :)
  • My 9 yr old son and I went on a half day climbing outing with Herb, and it was amazing. Besides being extremely safe and knowledgeable, he was a pleasure to hang out with. A fantastic memory that we will never forget! Thanks for the awesome time!
  • We had great experience with Desert Highlights and our guide Melissa. She was very knowledgeable and ensured we were all enjoying ourselves and were safe. One of the guys we were with really struggled with his nerves before one of the repels and Melissa was so calm and reassuring. Melissa's confidence, knowledge and sense of humour made for a great day.
  • Great trip! The owners, Herb and Melissa were very accommodating and personable. Highly recommend!
