The whole trip took about three hours and we had a great day. We will definitely do the trip again the next time we are in Las Vegas.

What people are saying about Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area

I booked through and we got Denny with West Pearl Tours as our driver. There aren't words to describe how incredible Denny was. He drove us through the Red Rock Canyon and to the Seven Magic Mountains. We was extremely prepared in areas we were lacking such as adequate amounts of cold bottled water. He was a very knowledgeable guide and explained a lot of the history and science behind the regions. He gave us caution to avoid areas that he had experienced as potentially dangerous due to wildlife. But above all that, he made sure that we captured every special moment. He took fantastic pictures from fantastic angles and views. He made sure we had fun with it and even gave us pose ideas. He even got on the floor to capture the perfect shot. Denny was amazing and when I'm back in Vegas I'm booking another tour just so I can get him.

Comfortable Ford Expedition was used.i was in the back seat and had enough room. The driver had plenty of water for us and everyone got an individual box of snacks including the likes of a bag of pretzels, wafer cookies and an energy bar. Guide was knowledgeable and I thought the amount of time at each stop was reasonable. I would suggest a little more time at the Red Rock Canyon visitor center. So much information!

Booking the excursion was very easy through the website. Our tour guide, Denny, showed up at our hotel right on time in a very comfortable van. Denny was very knowledgeable about all of pertinent facts surrounding the historical elements of the sites that were visited. He knew the best places to get great photos and even offered to take pictures of my wife and I at the different sites that we visited.

Love love the trip!! Tour guide was on time picking us up, he was gracious and attentive, right away offered us water and there were snack at the our seat. He was knowledgeable and took amazing pictures of us. Unfortunately, I don’t remember his name, only that he was from Brazil. Recommend this trip 100%.

Our Guide made this trip very interesting and fun. Things were pointed out that we would have missed without his input. The off-road tour was very exciting!
