This is a wonderful tour for those who want to get off the strip for a few hours and learn about the landscape. Skip, the tour guide, was extremely knowledgeable about the terrain, vegetation and history of the area.

Well run tour in a big, luxurious, clean bus. Our guide, Jerry, was knowledgeable and driver, both courteous. The stop off vistas were marvelous. Stop off to the Ranch for lunch was all the more special. Recommend.

The trip was interesting and very scenic. A little more time at the Visitor's Center would be nice. From the description, I expected a guided narrated tour and there was no narration or explanation of what we were seeing.

We had a beautiful day at Red Rock. Our tour guide, Kathi, was amazing. The lunch that was provided was also very good. I recommend this tour if you need an escape from the Las Vegas strip and want a reason to reconnect with nature.

I absolutely adore Las Vegas but to escape the hustle and bustle to Red Rock Canyon is a must. Dave was our driver/guide and made the tour more memorable.

Skip gave a great tour with fun commentary. We would love to take another tour with him. We appreciated that he reminded the talking ladies to please listen so all could hear about the history of this unique location!

The tour guide Was extremely knowledgeable and made the trip a lot of fun. I left my coat on the bus and I called to get it back and they returned it via a special trip the following day. I would definitely recommend this tour!!

Unfortunately this tour was mistakenly described as a "Hummer" tour by the sales agent (doing the booking). Guess What --- IT IS NOT!
This tour is basically a "BUS" full of people that are driven around to "various" sites on the Red Rock Canyon road then "Dropped OFF" and given a SMALL "Time Allotment" to investigate the site. While beautiful and very scenic ---save yourself MONEY --- do it by yourself! The guide was very "MONO-TONE" and basically was putting everyone on the bus to SLEEP. RENT A CAR AND SPEND THE TIME YOU want to site seeing.
Not Worth the money! Stick with the "Pink Hummer Tours! " Look much MORE FUN!

Ryan and Jerry provided us with a beautiful ride and gave us a good amount of facts about the area. You could do some rock climbing and a little bit of exploration if you wanted or just take pictures of the landscape. The gift shop was nice, and the ranch was a nice place to visit and have a quiet lunch. We could have spent all day there.

We booked the longer six hour tour. I enjoyed stopping at the Las Vegas sign. We even got to see Elvis. The canyon was beautiful. If you have lots of time to kill the tie or the mansion and lunch was cool. But I would have either spent time at the pool. Our tour guide Jerry was a bit much.
