We had a wonderful time with Denis at the valley of Fire. He was a great guide and full of interesting information about the plants and animals as well as the amazing landscape. He was happy to stop and let us take photos pointing out the good places and rock formations. We really had a great trip. Thank you.

Great, the tour guide was the best I think his name was either Lloyd or Larry but he was well versed on the Valley of Fire. I will be taking the hiking tour the next time I come back to Vegas

I took this trip as a solo traveler, and the tour guide Clayten B. was the greatest! It was a smaller group, 2 couples and myself, he introduced us all, was comfortable right from start! We saw so many wonderful points, the colors and rock formations are amazing, saw petroglyphs and some lizards sunning, a condor, Clayten was such an informative, friendly guide, learned alot about the area, and many many pictures, which he also was willing to take! We stopped at the cabins, we also had our box lunch which was included, good Italian sandwich! On way back we stopped at the LOst Museum in Overten and had more pics, some great information in museum and bought a few gifts! Hotel pick up and drop off, it was a very memorable day!

What a great trip - I loved being in the desert climbing the red sandstone rocks, walking in the fine red sand and finding old Indian petroglyphs.

Our guide was superb - He knew history and interesting facts that were both pertinent to our trip, and interesting sidelights. The day was beautiful, the ride comfortable, the scenery stunning. I would recommend it to anyone - as especially our guide, Julian.

From start to finish this was a fantastic tour. A nice small group, a very knowledgeable guide, the most beautiful scenery, stunning petroglyphs and even the museum at the end of the tour was fascinating. Well worth taking time away from the over-the-top man-made scene that is Vegas to remind yourself that nature created spectacles long before Man ever did!

I think what made this such a great tour was our guide Charlene. She made the valley come alive for me and was so knowledgeable.

This tour was wonderful, more beautiful than any pictures can begin to show. We spent the full day going back in time and the ages of time in the museum. The tour in the Valley of Fire was spectacular. Our guide was so very knowledgeable in providing the details of the area. She took us to favorite spots and helped us to see the drawings and petroglyphs. The colors were vibrant and it is fun to review our photos to remember our wonderful tour.
I highly recommend this tour when you are in the Las Vegas area.

We loved this tour - Bill who was filling in for Charlene was brilliant picking us all up at the LV hotels and then off to VOF we went. There were a ttoal of 6 of us and Bill took us to the best spots, taking our photos and answering our questions. All in all, we saw a total of 7-8 sites at the VOF. I loved that you could get close and touch, feel, climb etc. We didnt think much of the museum but maybe that was just because we were tired after the long day and we were so wowed by the VOF but then thats just our opinion. You can get some nice souvenirs and good prices there and its tax free! However, we are rating the tour as a whole and have to give it 5/5

This was the last tour of our 9 days in Vegas, and was definitely one to save for the end. We had an absolutely wonderful tour guide from Adventure Photo Tours - Charlene. We were in a group of 4 which made for an excellent private tour in the end; a German couple who were supposed to join us absolutely lambasted Charlene in the morning for being delayed by traffic for all of 10 minutes, and complained the vehicle was not what they were expecting. Despite being abused, Charlene kept her composure, calmly informed us what happened, and then got us on our way.

First stop was the lost city - so named because the construction of Hoover Dam meant Lake Mead flooded the area. However, with the water level in the lake dropping, the city was unearthed once again and became a prime site for investigating ancient cultures. There were pristine example of underground houses, as well as on-land dwellings, with a museum of thousands of artefacts excavated from the site. These ranged from pots and pottery to weaponry and even dinosaurs bones.

The Valley itself was the highlight of the trip though - stunning from every angle, pictographs scattered on rocks everywhere. Charlene was excellent in going above and beyond for the trip, stopping at many unscheduled locations to allow us to get the very best photos. She also knows the area inside out and can point out many things other guides would miss. We spent a good few hours driving around the valley, before heading back to the hotels for around 3pm.

Could not recommend this tour any higher for people interested in the Valley and ancient history - there's so much to see and do and if you get a guide like Charlene it'll be even more amazing!

What a wonderful day. Naturally I had seen photos of the place in advance but they do no justice to the true beauty of this amazing, strange, very powerful and spiritual place. The colors, the rock formations, the wildlife. We were also lucky to visit on a sunny day so the colors were really blazing.
Also, our guide Charlene was a magician, literally taking us to another time and place with wonderful stories to share and with patience to stop and show us around without any feeling of hurry. I will especially never forget the magic trick of how we arrived in Rainbow Vista (I must tell you that the night before I had seen David Copperfield at the MGM and mind you I absolutely do love his illusions, but sorry Mr. Copperfield, you've been beaten!).
I highly recommend this tour. And especially if you have only one day to spend since the park is not far from Vegas, so you don't need to spend 5+ hours. During my visit to Vegas I visited several other parks (including Grand Canyon and Death Valley) and of all these Valley of Fire remains the most stunning experience.

The tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. Because we were a small goup 4 our tour guide took us to some beautiful, less traveled viewing areas. The entire trip was awe inspiring, however, the museum was not open. The small ground squirrels at out lunch stop were cute and entertaining.

Had a great experience. Driver was very informative. Good lunch provided. End of April was good time to go on this tour as weather was not as hot as later in the year.

The place is better than Red Rock because it is more extensive the rock formation. Our tour guide was knowledgeable of the history and had a sense of humor. The ride was comfortable and the food was just fine.

Great trip. I enjoyed the red sand dessert, the red sandstone clifs - especially climbing them - and the flora. Also, cool with the petroglyphs. Would have likes to see the Domes though instead of the Lost City Museum.
