We had a fantastic time at Red Rock Canyon. It was good to escape the noise of the strip for a while. The scenery was beautiful. There were only 7 of us doing the tour and it was lovely. Plenty of stops for photographs.

A very well paced tour. Plenty of opportunities for excellent photos and you will want to take a lot.

Our driver Chuck was very friendly, and kept us all very entertained with his stories and insights.

For a relatively short tour, I think is is an excellent choice. There is some climbing involved, but nothing overly strenuous. We certainly didn't get to see everything the park had to offer, but did have an excellent sampling of the different areas. If anything, it only whetted my appetite to take a much longer exploration.
