Red Rock Canyon Tour

Las Vegas, Nevada

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This is one of three trips we went on during our stay in Vegas and this, like our Death Valley tour, was a small group tour. I cannot help but recommend these small tour and again, like Death Valley, it was the trip of a lifetime. Red Rock Canyon is very close to Las Vegas (less than an hour from Tropicana) and despite it's name the 'Canyon' is not a large crevasse like the 'Grand' so some visitors may be a little disappointed but believe me it's well worth visiting to see the rocks, visitor centre, ranch and Howard Hughes's retreat.
Our guide was excellent, made us feel welcome and very informative. This is one easy trip to do if you're not up to the long road trip to the Grand Canyon

My Review

This is a trip of a lifetime but it was let down my a few points. Because we were given incorrect/incomplete intructions we missed the pickup coach and tour and after a number of fraught calls to the tour complany we rearranged it for another day. The tour operator collect passengers travelling around Vegas and them ferry them to a large central warehouse for 'processing'. What I cannot understand with Vegas why are there so many compulsory add-on fees? To be 'processed' there was a seperate $10 per person fee which is compulsory and why is this not added up front to the fee pay to Viator?
Once you are sorted into different groups you are then herded onto double decker coaches for 5+ hour trip (via the excellent whistle stop tour to/of Hoover Dam). When you arrive at the Grand Canyon you get just 2 hours sight seeing at two different points before the 5 hour journey back to Vegas. It's a very long day (6 am start to 1130 pm hotel return) for just two hours.
I'd like to return to the Grand Canyon in the future but not through this type of coach trip

Small-Group Death Valley National Park Day Trip from Las Vegas

Las Vegas, Nevada

My Review

Brilliant tour and well worth the money. Our guide was very informative, there was nothing he could not answer and went out of his way to accommodate anything anyone in the small group requested. The real advantage of a small group tour is, for me, the ability to go to areas within Death Valley and off the beaten track that the large coaches just cannot access. We were picked up right outside our hotel and not hurried or running to a timetable during the trip. Also struck up a rapport with our guide (same musical taste and he does visit the UK periodically!) which was a bonus.
A real must do
