Excellent tour with the best tour guide
Melanie_G, Feb 2023
We had an amazing tour with Lankun! She was incredibly knowledgeable and friendly, and the pictures she took were stunning. I would go on a tour of any place with her, she made it interesting and fun, and by the end it felt like we had just been hiking through the mountains with a friend. I highly recommend this tour, especially with Lankun!
Less Photos and More Hiking Please

I learned a great deal about city outside of Las Vegas. Tour guide was very knowledgeable. However, I was somewhat disappointed because I did not realize that the tour was centered around photography. So, because I didn't want my picture taken every ten minutes most of my time was spent waiting around while others participated in photo shoots. I really wanted to hike and learn about the rock formations. I have to admit photos turned out great, but tons of pictures wasn't the reason why I signed up for the excursion.
Great trip

7 magic mountains was beautiful. The hiking at Red Rock and photography tour with Jay was very nice as well.

Donna_D, Aug 2022
I traveled with a family of six and we all loved this tour as well as our guide Jay!! Jay was easy to communicate with prior to our tour and was very knowledgeable about the canyon on the tour. He took the time to take amazing photos of each of us and our group. The canyon itself was an amazing sight and was just about 40 minutes from the Vegas strip. Definitely recommend as it was such a great experience!!
Must see!
Susan_B, Jul 2022
Our guide Jay was very informative. The canyon is so beautiful! Would do it again. Absolutely loved it!
Red Rock Canyon
Michael_C, Jun 2022
Jay took good care of us. Made sure we were hydrated and safe when hiking on steeper surfaces. The park was very peaceful. We had just finished a tour of Mesa Verde, Grand Canyon, Canyonlands and Monument Valley - the big name parks BUT this one we were able to see more up close. It was nice going to a lesser known area
Nice tour
Joseph_B, May 2022
Jay was an outstanding guide, and the tour was better than we expected. Jay knows his stuff, and was very entertaining, as well as knowledgeable. He also knows the nicest spots for pictures and helped us with ours.
Amazing tour

Manisha_S, Apr 2022
It was amazing experience. Jay our guide was very experienced, very helpful, knowledgeable and kind. He made sure that all our group were together. Always asking about our well being. I travelled with my 8 years old son and my mom and it was very easy and smooth experience. Would absolutely recommend.
Amazing sunset tour!
Cori_D, Mar 2022
This was an amazing tour! Our guide, Jay, was fantastic. He had the car stocked with water, shared lots of facts about Vegas, and found the best spots for exploring and taking pictures. We had so much fun and enjoyed a beautiful sunset too!
Excellent way to see the highlights of Red Rock Canyon
Steve_V, Mar 2022
Our tour guide, Jay, made this tour very special. He took us to great locations to capture beautiful pictures. He was very patient with people who were in our group that wanted multiple pictures taken. The sunset pictures did not disappoint. I would do this tour again if I returned to Las Vegas.
Awesome Afternoon
Tracy_S, Mar 2022
All the memories created by excellent photos taken by the very charismatic and informative Jay 👏👏👏👏
Highly Recommended Tour
Shanna_S, Mar 2022
My tour guide, JAY, was awesome. JAY arrived to pick us up at the exact time that was texted to us. This is the best tour that my husband and I have ever taken. JAY was very knowlegable of the Las Vegas area and the Red Rock Canyon, and gave us interesting and entertaining information as we drove to Red Rock Canyon and while we hiked. Red Rock Canyon was absolutely beautiful, and I am glad we chose to visit this amazing site while we were on our Las Vagas vacation. The sunset over Red Rock Cannyon was absolutely beautiful, and JAY's timing to get to the lookout to watch it was perfect. Its extremely obvious that JAY is a very experienced tour guide. His knowledge is what made the visit to Red Rock Canyon perfect and enjoyable for us. JAY was able to accomodate multiple skill levels while hiking the various trails. I am a complete novice with a fear of heights and my endurance levels are diminishwd by ongoing chemotherapy treatments. My husband is the complete opposite, he has a high endurance and no fears of heights or wildlife. JAY made me feel calm and safe with plenty accomodations for my disability (cancer patient). At the same time, I did not feel like I was holding the group back. JAY made sure my husband was challenged on the hike and provided him the time to take plenty of photos, as my husband enjoys photography as a hobby. JAY provided my husband with plenty of photography tips and took a ton of wonderful photos of us as a couple using my husband's phone, so we have a ton of photos by phone and a digital camera. JAY even took a super cool panaramic photo using his own phone that he emailed to me. When we come back to Vegas in the future, we will definitely use JAY again for another tour and we will definitely use this tour campany again. I strongly recommend the company, the tour ti Red Rock Canyon, and JAY as a tour guide. I rate this excursion a 100/10. The experience was awesome.
