Great tour. Informative. Friendly guide, very knowledgeable. However, the guide talked a lot, the whole time. Maybe scale that back a little. But other than that, it was amazing.
Red Rock Canyon is very scenic. Perfect tour to leave the Las Vegas Strip for a few hours. Our tour guide Dave was great and very informative. Little on the cool side because it's December, but still better than 110 degrees!
The canyon is beyond belief, just beautiful. The driver Jack was fun, very chatty and full of interesting facts, and useless info (his words), and lots of funny jokes. The ranch is charming and I’d love to live there myself. I would recommend this tour to everyone.
Big thumbs up to Skip and Gerry, they were perfect hosts and we thoroughly enjoyed our tour with them. Skip was a wealth of information and shared his knowledge with humour and warmth. Its such a beautiful area of the country, everyone should see it.
Red Rock Canyon was spectacular!! We couldn’t have had better weather. Alan was an excellent tour guide, very informative, very polite and friendly. The additional “tidbits” of history and habitat Alan provided about Red Rock made it even better!
