This 8-hour excursion to the Valley of Fire and the Lost City Museum begins with a Las Vegas hotel pickup. From the famous Vegas Strip, it’s approximately an hour drive north to Valley of Fire State Park. The aptly named Valley of Fire, well known for its red-colored rock formations, was once the spiritual center of the ancient Anasazi Indians, a great early American civilization. Valley of Fire State Park, the oldest and largest state park in Nevada, covers almost 42,000 acres. This National Natural Landmark gets its name from the red sandstone formations that were formed from great shifting sand dunes during the age of the dinosaurs. These features, which are the centerpiece of the park's attractions, often appear to be on fire when the sun’s rays reflect off of them. Then discover the Lost City Museum (formerly the Boulder Dam Park Museum), built over and around the foundations of ancient Anasazi Pueblo ruins. Look for priceless artifacts and displays of pottery, baskets, arrowheads, tools, plus mystical ancient Indian petroglyphs and pictographs. Be sure to bring a camera. This combo tour of early Native American life is truly a photographer’s dream come true. Please advise of your sandwich/lunch preference in the Special Requirements field at the time of booking: • Ham • Turkey • Deluxe Turkey (cranberry sauce, stuffing and mayonnaise) • Italian (combination of Genoa salami, capacolla and prosciutini) • Veggie • Garden salad with vinaigrette
Thank you for the review. I agree, whenever I go to a new location I always take a professional tour. I learn more about the area, history and geology in one day than I could in weeks of reading.
Very best regards,

This was a really fun day trip despite it being unseasonably cold. Our guide (forgot his name) was very knowledgable and also accommodating as at the end, a couple with us wanted to stop hack again for some pics they missed earlier and he checked with the rest of us if we were ok doing that (we were of course). The lunch provided was also much better than most "boxed lunches". I would recommend this trip for sure as it's a lovely area!
If you have a day to spare while you are in Vegas, take a tour to the Valley of Fire. So beautiful! Our tour guide, Clayton, was awesome. Very knowledgeable in the area and since we were on a small tour, we got a lot of extra information. He knew ways to get around crowds, the best place to lunch with a view and without a crowd. Jam packed day of beautiful sites. Definitely take this tour!
Fantastic! Our tour guide was Peter. We were a small tour of 4. We're from Honolulu, Hawaii. The second couple was from London, England. En route to Valley of Fire, Peter gave us a historical background of Las Vegas. We stopped halfway at an Indian convenience store, which provided modern facilities. The rest stop provided at Valley of Fire was "rustic" explained Peter. We've been to Red Rock, but Red Rock pales in comparison to Valley of Fire. This is not a sit down tour. It's an interactive walking tour as Peter points out petroglyphs, water wells, and the distinctive feature of each site. Be sure to wear comfortable walking shoes. Peter allowed us to take as much time as needed to see and experience each site. We even got to see the site from "Star Trek" where Captain Kirk was buried. And the lunch, I could barely eat all my sandwich. You have a choice of selection. Even the ground squirrel enjoyed the chips. And the Lost City Museum Tour Center is full of information regarding the history of the area, the Indians that lived there, and the many artifacts utilized by them. Peter made sure we were comfortable, answered all our question, and very well informed. He surely enjoys what he is doing and his enthusiasm is catching. PS: Instead of dropping us at our pickup point, he dropped us off at our hotel.. That's service!
