I enjoyed the Valley of Fire hiking tour. Surprisingly, it blew my mind away more than Grand Canyon did. Reason being, this is a hiking tour, and you get to go off-trail, clambering on rocks on ascent and descent. It was really fun for me because I have always been on those jeep tours and I don’t get as much of the true experience as this. If you’re looking to really see those magnificent rocks upclose, Love Hikes’ tours certainly beat sightseeing jeep tours. (I honestly hope they will extend their hiking tours to more parks in the future!)
JJ, my guide was knowledgeable, patient and helpful. He is a very nice guy whom you want to be hiking next to!! I chose the Easy tour, but according to JJ, there isn’t much difference between the more difficult tours, except for distance covered. After the hike, JJ also recommended some sights to see in Vegas that are away from the Strip. Thank you JJ and Love Hikes for the fantastic day-out to Valley of Fire.
Tip: You can choose sunrise, afternoon, or a sunset hike. Let the company know in advance and they will cater to your needs. I heard that it is best to experience the Valley of Fire during sunrise. So don’t be lazy and get up early!!
For anyone that is up to it, this is a nice way for a person to see a park. Love Hikes guide JJ was great at being both a tour leader and a hiking guide, able to judge what would be too difficult or too easy for the group. He did an excellent job at managing time as we got to see a lot and go away from the groups that form at the park entrance, You really get to feel like your group is the only people there for a while, and see the scenery from a different perspective. I highly recommend this hiking trip, do not pass this one up.
This tour was excellent. My wife and I did an early morning hike, and were fortunate to be the only two people on the tour. Although we chose the Intermediate hike, our guide, Elizabeth, really made an effort to personalize the hike to make sure we got the most out of the experience. We had a fun time exploring, and Elizabeth did a great job telling us about the various plants, animals, and geology along the way. The hotel pickup and drop off were very convenient. I would highly recommend the tour operators.
I had a brilliant early morning hike with Jacob. I was impressed that although I was the only customer the trip went ahead which was great as I had 1:1 personal service! The weather was wonderful with clear skies which always helps. Jacob was very informative regarding both the geological aspects and also the wildlife. He also ensured that I had the necessary help in clambering up the rocks when it was needed!
I would have no hesitancy in booking with this firm again as I was very impressed by all aspects of the service given.
