Fun tour
Lucy_E, May 2023
I enjoyed the tour. Steve was a great guide. Informative and fun. I was concerned about too much sun, but was offered an umbrella, water or a fan. I would go again.
Truly fabulous Las Vegas Nevada
David_P, May 2023
The walk on elevated part of red rock - breathtaking view and beautiful pics by JT. Also the history behind the property, house, towns…
Beautiful nature right outside of Las Vegas!
Christine_K, May 2023
The nature outside of Las Vegas is simply beautiful. Also, one could tell that the tourguide T.J. was personally very fond of the area.
Highly recommend if you want to see more of what Vegas has to offer than the Strip!
Angel_G, May 2023
I would highly recommend this tour to Red Rock! Our guide was JT and he was fun and knowledgeable! Great to do something in nature and see the beauty of the area. The nature walk/hike was not too long or too hard. Most people should be able to do it easily. Nice stop/break on trip for drinks/stops at local area. Can comfortable and cool. One tip, be sure to put in your pick up stop 24 hours prior to trip or you will be unable to. I was not aware of this and had to travel a fair distance to pick up stop.
A wonderful Experience!!
Adeyinka_A, May 2023
What an absolute treat! If you are fortunate enough to have JT as your guide, you are in the most excellent hands. Some people have deep knowledge while others are personable. JT is the perfect combination of both! He will make you fall in love with the natural beauty and the deep history. Thanks JT! Yinka & Hawk
Awesome Tour
John_O, May 2023
A great trip to a beautiful place with a great guide. JT provided valuable information of history and geology of the canyon and surrounding areas. He also points out interesting Vegas history on the way to and from the site.
Joseph_M, May 2023
It’s an amazing trip! If you like to hike, you like history and geology then this is the hike for you! Make sure to wear sunblock and bring bottled water.
Excellent tour of the...
Selina_M, May 2023
Excellent tour of the canyon, Bar Nothing Ranch, and the Blue Diamond mining town. Enjoyable, casual hiking and amazing views!
Great guide, itinerary needs some work
Ken_W, May 2023
Our guide, JT, was wonderful. Funny, interesting and knowledgeable. Learned a lot and was entertained. The only downside is that we didn’t see a lot and there was much less hiking than i thought. We would’ve liked a longer hike or seeing more of Red Rock Canyon. Felt like we spent almost the same amount of time waiting at the convenience store as we did at the actual canyon.
Response from Host, May 2023
Thanks we’re so glad you enjoyed the tour, we had a blast showing you this awesome, inspiring part of Vegas. This is NOT A HIKING TOUR. If you want to do more hiking, hours exploring by foot this is not the tour for you, book a hiking tour. Our itinerary is carefully designed to work great for what we do - this is a really nice tour where we make friends, learn a lot about the history of Vegas - it’s Native American heritage and Wild West days, and it’s awesome natural beauty in the Red Rock Canyon area. We do a very pleasant, gorgeous under 1 mile nature walk that folks really enjoy where we learn about native plants, animals, and how natives used the lands. And lastly we stop at the old mining town of Blue Diamond for a snack break and to hang out with each other in a super relaxing, peaceful old-school tiny town together for about a half hour. 99% of our guests love this time together and find the whole itinerary a really nice balance. If this sounds good come along you will have a wonderful time with us. But if you want to hike for hours book a different tour :).
A great day in the real Las Vegas
Vito_P, Apr 2023
Phenominal views of the canyon, wild life, vegitation. Very informative tour. Very knowledgeable guide. Underground streams provide wonderful desert growth.... and support animal life.... such an amazing contrast from the strip. A great getaway only 20 miles away away....well worth experience.

Great Tour!

This is a great tour! We enjoyed being in a small group of eight and had a wonderful tour guide. He made the tour fun and we learned many things about Red Rock Canyon. We spent time at Mountain Spring Ranch and learned about history of the area. I would recommend this tour to anyone looking for something to do while in the Vegas area.
Amazingly beautiful desert tour with the tour guide EVER!
