DeAnna_W, Mar 2023
Our tour guide JT was awesome! After several days of the hustle and bustle and lights of Vegas, this beautiful red rock canyon tour was just what we needed. It is a gorgeous area, and JT was awesome with taking pictures and telling us all about the history of the area. I highly recommend this tour.
So glad we did this tour

Add Red Rock to your Las Vegas visit!
Debra_W, Mar 2023
JT , owner and tour guide gave a great back story of Red Rock as well as Las Vegas beginnings . His decade of experience and stories were both entertaining and informative. Naming top 3 reasons to visit Vegas after his tour add the mountains & Red Rock to your list !
Tour was Okay, JT was Great
Lynn_R, Mar 2023
JT was an excellent guide - great sense of humor and very accommodating. My reason for giving 3 stars is that the trip to Blue Diamond segment of the trip could have been used toward visiting more of the Red Rock Canyon area. Instead, we stopped for almost 30 minutes to purchase food to eat at a restaurant. With all the rain and snow that the area has had, a trip to view a waterfall or other scenery would have been time better spent. The tour was only about 3 hours, so I felt the need to eat wasn't necessary. I would try other tours that visit more areas of the canyon if your goal is to take in as much of the Conservation within the time allotted. There is so much to see and it is BEAUTIFUL!
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Thanks for the review. We had a blast showing you this gorgeous area, and sharing the history of our awesome favorite spots. This tour is an introduction and a very thorough overview of Red Rock Canyon, the old west and Native American history of Vegas that includes a beautiful nature walk and stroll through historic properties and yes includes hanging out together at an old school cute little western town for a snack break. Most of our guests really enjoy that part, we think it’s just the perfect way to end our morning together. To spend more time getting back to waterfalls and canyons as you suggest would require literally an extra 2-4 hours. This would eliminate most folks that would want to come along on this tour. There are definitely better tours than ours if you want this. Specifically, sign up for a hiking tour and be prepared to spend lots of time walking over tougher terrain. To add this to ours would make it an all day affair. Our walk is more like a pleasant stroll through nature casually with friends. Our tour is for friends that want to learn a lot about the old Vegas in a very well thought out process of experiencing some of the world’s greatest scenery, but without ever sweating much :).
This trip to the Red Rock...

Extraordinary Guide
Rafael_M, Mar 2023
A perfect 1/2 day tour of 3 stops amongst Red Rock Canyon. Our guide extraordinaire, JT, took us on an easy climb/hike while telling all about the land, plants and history on our first stop. Saw snow and wild burro! Two other stops full of history and beauty. JT was extremely knowledgeable and his passion for where he calls home is evident!
Best tour ever!
