What You Can Expect

Scooter Car Tour of Red Rock Canyon with Transport from Las Vegas

Scooter Car Tour of Red Rock Canyon

Your tour starts with pickup at your Las Vegas hotel and transfer to the Summerlin area near Red Rock Canyon.

There, your guide provides you with your scooter car and reviews the safety guidelines for car operations. After taking some practice runs, follow your guide for approximately 5 miles (8 km) on a paved road to reach Red Rock Canyon. Stop first at the visitor's center where informative exhibits explain the canyon's plant and animal life, and the history of the Native American Paiute tribe that once lived in this region.

Next, see the park up close as your guide leads your group of scooter cars on a 13-mile (21-km) scenic loop. Marvel at the series of scenic canyons and sculptural rock formations found within the Red Rock National Conservation Area while enjoying the fresh air and 360-degree unobstructed views. You might see wild burros, tortoises, jack rabbits and other wildlife, along with sheer rock walls that attract professional rock climbers from all over the world.

Expect to spend approximately 3.5 hours driving and exploring on foot at designated stops along the way. Your guide can recommend great hiking trails that are suited to your desired level of difficulty. Enjoy a bird's-eye perspective on the area from High Point Overlook, located at almost 5,000 feet (1,524 meters) above sea level, with views that overlook the southern portion of Las Vegas Valley.

Your tour covers approximately 35 miles (56 km) round-trip from the start point in Summerlin. During stops, you can switch drivers and stretch your legs. The 2-person, 3-wheel scooter cars are easy to drive; they do not have a clutch or gears, and don't require a special license. Your tour ends with drop-off at your Las Vegas hotel.

Please note: price displayed is based per scooter; if traveling in a party of 2 please only select 1 traveler. If you wish to have individual scooters, select the number of scooters you will need. In order to operate the vehicles, customers must be able to speak and understand basic English for safety purposes.

This was so fun. My husband thought the scooter would be boring, but we had a great time. We took the morning tour and I recommend that before it gets too hot. It was actually a little chilly and windy at the top. Bring a light jacket and take this tour!

OMG what a GREAT tour!!! If you're in Vegas you really should consider taking this tour!! The guides are very knowledgeable and very friendly! If taking the morning tour I would suggest a light jacket, or your first potty break has a gift shop where you can purchase a jacket, shirt, etc. and if you tell them you are with the Scooter Car Tour you will be given a discount. By all means I would highly recommend this tour!! It's a great experience and you're even able to hike a trail or two if you so desire.
