Wow, if you've been to the Grand Canyon and want more fabulous scenery then this is the trip for you. Red Rock Canyon is only about 25km outside Las Vegas and with an organised trip quite relaxing. You first stop off at the visitor centre before starting on the Red Rock Canyon loop which is about 13km long. Our guide Jerry was very knowledgeable and kept us topped up with facts through the whole trip.. Once you have finished the loop, you are then taken to a ranch for lunch and a tour around a Ranch house. A good day out but remember plenty of sun screen!!

The Red Rock canyon tour was the expected hit for my family when we visited Las Vegas. It was low exercise and easy for my parents who are septuagenarians. The scenery within the comfortable bus and at the eight or so stops was breathtaking. And our tour guide Ralph was fantastic. His knowledge was encyclopedic and he really engaged us all with the geologic and more recent history of the canyon.

Good day trip. Nice scenery and very different.

Fabulous scenery. Would have liked more time at the visitors centre. Very enjoyable and recommend it to get out of Vegas for a while.

This was a great tour! There was only one other couple, so it felt like a private tour. Our guide/driver was knowledgeable, friendly, and caring. The vistas in the canyon were amazing.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

It was an excellent tour and we were really glad we did it! The tour was extremely well planned and our tour guide Marc was really funny, explained a lot, and reacted to the group. As only five people attended it felt a bit like a private tour. We did a lot of stops on the scenic loop to take photos and even had time for some hiking. Lunch was at Spring Mountain Ranch, which was a really nice place as well. I can only recommend this tour!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

I can't recommend this tour highly enough - we had a great time. The day was extremely well planned with a prompt pick up from our hotel. Ralph, the tour guide, was a geology expert and gave a really well informed talk as we toured. There were frequent opportunities to stop and take photos, ask questions and just take in this awe inspiring scenery. There wasn't too much walking for those who found it hard to get around, an air conditioned bus and plenty of water to keep you hydrated. Lunch was at the Spring Mountain Ranch - taken under the trees surrounded by spectacular views, with just birdsong to break the silence. The Ranch is a haven - a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of the Strip. Not a sound from the modern world!

What more can I say - we loved it!

We joined the six hour trip, but only six people attended. It turns out to be a private tour. Adam is very knowledgeable and provides a lot of useful information about Red Rock Canyon, beyond purely following the itinerary. The place itself is very rich in educational resource on geological and ecological sciences. It is highly recommended for family with students.
