Shawn Miller is an exceptional guide and person. He made our trip to the Slot Canyons a true adventure: patient, professional, personable, knowledgeable, and so much more. Would not do this excursion into the desert without him.

My husband and I did Spooky and Peek a Boo with Shawn in October. Without him we would not have been able to find the canyons let alone get through them. He was very patient in explaining and showing the moves we needed to make in the tricky and dangerous spots (of which there were many). I personally wouldn't try... More

My wife and I did Spooky and Peek-a-boo with Shawn and 2 other couples back in May and we are still talking about it 3 months later as one of the best things we ever did. Shawn was a great tour guide - he pointed out dozens of desert plants along the hike to/from the slot canyons and gave us... More

We hiked with Sean a week ago in Spooky/Pick-a-boo and we had the greatest experience. Sean is a knowledgable guide, highly professional, and has a lovable personality. We were a family with three kids and he was was very helpful with them. Highly recommended! Nir and Michal (Israel)

Our family (2 adults, 12 year old and 14 year old) did the Spooky/Peek-a-boo slot tour guided by Shawn last week. This was our first trip to the area and exploring slot canyons was on our must-do list. We wanted to get the most out of it and feel safe as well so we went with a guided tour through... More

Sean is an amazing hiking guide with lots of knowledge of the area, plants and animal life including distinguishing the different animal and reptile prints in the sand. His expertise & technical knowledge of the slot canyons made the challenge of Spooky and Peek-a-boo much more fun then if I had been by myself. If I was alone I think... More

My husband, son and I did the Spooky/Peek-A-Boo slot all day tour with Shawn and it was one of the top most fun things we have ever done in any of our holidays. The slot canyons are beautiful, and definitely recommend having a guide (not just any guide!) to not only make sure you don't get lost - but Shawn... More

My husband and I and two friends just came back from a two night camping trip with Shawn. None of us had previous camping experience and are in our 50's/60's. Thanks to Shawn's expert guiding, extensive knowledge and great personality we had a terrific experience. It wasn't glamping, but Shawn set up a base camp for us the day before... More

Shawn took my husband and I backpacking to a place where we saw no one, only beautiful canyons with ruins and petrogyphes. We crossed the Escalante River several times, which was refreshing while hiking. We ate delicious freeze-dried meals and he had gallons of fresh potable water available the whole trip. We'd go backpacking (escaping) with Shawn any time and... More

The Ecalante slot canyons are definitely an activity that requires a qualified guide service. Shawn with Escape Goats is a great choice for the following reasons: - friendly and informative communication before the trip. - punctual and accommodating the day of the trip. - Shawn is a truly passionate about the Escalante area - including an entertaining description of the...
