2. From Las Vegas: Valley of Fire Tour

Experience the incredible Valley of Fire, once the spiritual center of a great American civilization. The rock formations and Indian art will amaze you as you discover the ancient art and artifacts on a 7-hour tour. Valley of Fire State Park, covering nearly 42,000 acres, is the oldest and largest state park in Nevada, and was designated as a National Natural Landmark in 1968. Its name is derived from the red sandstone formations, created by the 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 reflecting the sun's rays. Located 50 miles northeast of Las Vegas, at an elevation of between 2,000 and 2,600 feet, the valley abuts the Lake Mead National Recreation Area at the Virgin River confluence. The park entry on Valley of Fire Highway, designated as a Nevada Scenic Byway, passes through the Moapa River Indian Reservation. Although petroglyphs are found throughout the entire park, Mouse's Tank and Atlatl Rock are 2 areas in particular where they are relatively easily accessible. Valley of Fire has provided the setting for numerous films and television shows as well as many car commercials, including the 1966 film, The Professionals with Burt Lancaster, Lee Marvin and Claudia Cardinale; the 1984-1987 CBS TV show, Airwolf starring Jan-Michael Vincent and Ernest Borgnine; the 1987 science fiction cult film, Cherry 2000 starring Melanie Griffith and David Andrews; the 1990 American science fiction action film, Total Recall starring Arnold Schwarzenegger; the 1994 American science fiction film, Star Trek Generations; Criss Angel's show, Criss Angel Mindfreak; the 2005 American action film, Domino starring Keira Knightley; the 2007 American science fiction action film, Transformers: Need for Speed: The Run, a car racing video game; and Lana Del Rey's Ride music video.

Our driver, Glen, picked us up at 7:15am at the Delano West Entrance. There was 7 of us and we picked up another family of 3 for a full Jeep. The air conditioning worked well. The Pink Jeep sits up high, has large side windows and an intercom system that Glen uses to talk about the sites to and from The Hoover Dam. We learned about the 4 Mountain Ranges that border the city of Las Vegas. Our tour was in July, so the temp was 108 ! Glen made sure we had water to stay hydrated and watched over us to insure no one struggled in the heat by finding shade and shortening the amount of time in the sun. This tour had us back to hotel by 1PM. This tour included an elevator ride 500 feet down to view the diversion tunnels and the turbine generators. Each stop was narrated with information of what we were seeing and the history of how the Hoover Dam was constructed in 1931. Our two grandchildren, 3 and 7, were somewhat bored with the tour. However, I think it is an awesome experience.

Glen was a knowledgeable, friendly guide who provided just the right amt of information. He was timely, trustworthy, and receptive to questions. Hoover Dam is a worthwhile visit for its breathtaking scenery and interesting look at the dynamics of dam construction and use.

A well organised tour. From pick up to arriving at the dam then having the tour inside the dam was very well orchestrated. I learn't so much about Vegas and of course the Dam. John you were the perfect tour guide and the stop to the lake and park was lovely!

we had a man named Jerry as our guide. He was very knowledgeable and friendly along the way. Although I wish the experience was more affordable, it was as nice as a hot day could be!

Chris our guide from pink Jeep Tours was outstanding. He was very prompt and very courteous. His local knowledge was very beneficial to us. I highly recommend this tour and group.
