    ...

    We enjoyed the trip, but was disappointed that the mask mandate wasn’t enforced ( or at least mentioned) when we were on the bus, because there several people not wearing masks. And that the tour guide didn’t set a good example and wear hers. Also, it was suppose to be a 3 hour tour and was only a little over 2. In the description it said we would see the volcano erupt and see the fountain show and we definitely were disappointed we didn’t get to see those because that was the deciding factor for us taking the tour.

Travel to beautiful Willow Beach, surrounded by steep canyon walls along the Colorado River, the site of your kayaking activity. A great escape into rugged nature for the day. Start with a hotel pickup from the Las Vegas Strip. After arriving at Willow Beach Marina, get fitted for your kayak and away you go with your guide.

Next, take a short hike to visit the historical site of the River Gauger's home that overlooks the river for a great photo opportunity and amazing views. Here your gu...

    This tour was amazing and perfect for first time kayakers. It became a little tiring due to unexpected high winds, but I'd do it again. Our guide, Zach, was terrific and very patient and understanding as several of us went astray on multiple occasions. I didn't feel rushed or like a burden. He took time to allow us breaks to rest and take in the beautiful scenery. He also provided snacks and water at every stop. He took plenty of pictures of us to ensure we had the perfect backdrops and some good action photos. Just a heads up, the "cave" isn't very large at all but still worth the visit for beautiful pics with the breathtaking water color. Best time to go for perfect sunlight in the cove is approx between noon and 3 PM. Even if you miss the window, the experience itself is worth it. Riverdogz was the name of the company.

  • From Las Vegas: Small-Group Valley of Fire Tour

Witness amazing petrified trees and 4,000-year-old Native American petroglyphs. Learn about the seismic fault lines that created the rugged terrain and how it has eroded over time. Hear about the Native American tribes who called this land home for thousands of years. Spend some time in the park's visitor center, where you can discover even more about the Valley of Fire. End the experience with hotel drop-off in Las Vegas.

    Enjoyed seeing such beautiful natural wonders so close to Las Vegas. Highly recommend.

  • Las Vegas: Grand Canyon, Antelope Canyon, Horseshoe Bend

    8. Las Vegas: Grand Canyon, Antelope Canyon, Horseshoe Bend

    Get away from the bright lights of Las Vegas, and journey into the great American Southwest. First, stop at Antelope Canyon and enjoy its colorful, intricate rock walls and formations, rainbow colors, and patterns. You'll explore the canyon with an experienced Navajo guide. Next, take in spectacular views at the Horseshoe Bend, a horseshoe-shaped incised meander of the Colorado River. After hiking 1.2 km on a sandy trail, take your time to admire the breathtaking views. Finally, stop at the world-famous Grand Canyon, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Discover its layered bands of red rock revealing millions of years of geological history. On the way back to Las Vegas, take a short break in Seligman, a small town along Route 66.

    It was a good trip however I was a little disappointed in Horseshoe Bend. It is a long day so be prepared. I think the driving could have been less erratic and not so fast.

The tour guide Robert was fantastic! without him we wouldn't have known anything about what we were seeing.I felt bad for our guide at the end.We were suppose to be back at 2:00.one man kept us waiting for 50 minutes.we all thought after 30 minutes Robert should have left him.But he was very calm and said he couldn't.

We had an amazing experience and we love our guide, Ita. He is awesome, knowledgeable and so helpful and very nice. We enjoyed the tour so much and we’ll be doing another one again in the future.

Fue una experiencia inolvidable, la recomiendo 100%. Agradezco a nuestra driver y guía NENA, una persona muy agradable, jovial y atenta. Gracias Nena por tan excelente servicio.
