    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.

  • From Las Vegas: Emerald Cave Kayaking Day Trip

    2. From Las Vegas: Emerald Cave Kayaking Day Trip

    Swap the lights of Las Vegas for one day on a nature day trip and guided kayaking adventure in nearby Arizona. 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. Paddle north on the crystal clear Colorado River while your guide points out wildlife and geological features in your surroundings. Arrive at the Emerald Cave about 2 miles in — explore the grotto-syle cave with pristine green-colored waters. Remember your waterproof camera, you’ll need it. 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

    3. From Las Vegas: Small-Group Valley of Fire Tour

    Begin the tour with pickup from your hotel (pick up starts from 7 AM) in Las Vegas. Enjoy a brief stop at the Moapa Indian Reservation on the way to the Valley of Fire State Park. Upon arrival, listen as your guide provides an overview of the park's geological history. Trek between the towering sandstone formations, which glow fiery red in the sunlight and are responsible for the park's name. 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: Tournament of Kings Show at Excalibur

    Discover the tale of King Arthur with tickets to the Tournament of Kings. Enjoy a live-action production filled with horse riding, pyrotechnics, and special effects.

During the show you’ll be served a dinner of Cornish game hen, lemon and pepper roasted potatoes, and corn on the cob, with an apple square for dessert.

    It was very fun, humor, fireworks, swords and food. Really interesting choreograph and tons of immersion.

  • From Las Vegas: Black Canyon Half-Day Kayak Tour

    6. From Las Vegas: Black Canyon Half-Day Kayak Tour

    Following pick-up from your approved hotel on the Las Vegas Strip, escape the city and journey by comfortable Mercedes Sprinter to the start point of your kayak adventure into the Black Canyon. Arrive at Willow Beach and prepare for the day ahead as your guides help fit you into your kayaks. Paddle upstream into the narrow channels of the Black Canyon, and scour the banks to spot a variety of wildlife, including native Desert Big Horn Sheep and Bald Eagles. Continue for approximately 1 mile, and then stop at an historical overlook for awe-inspiring views of the legendary Colorado River. Listen to an explanation about the immense history of what the river has been used for over the past 100 years. Enjoy a complimentary snack before setting off for the stunning rock formation of Emerald Cave on your way back to the starting point.

    Our first Kayak experience was educational and fun! For our 1st time (tandem kayak)the 3 hr. tour on the water was a great introduction on the Colorado river. Our guide was very knowledgeable and provided lots of information as we traveled to and from Willow Beach. We were picked up at a hotel in Las Vegas and it took about 30 minutes to arrive. Instructions were given for getting in/out of the kayak, paddling, and putting on/off your life jacket, plus other little tidbits on the kayak itself. Emerald Cave was much smaller than I expected (from the website pics) and to see the colors the westerly sun needs to hit the inside of the cave for all the colors. Overall I'm happy we had the adventure!

    The Guide made all the difference, she was excellent.It's a bus tour of the Strip but she made it a whole lot more. I'm glad I went on it. They need to put up big signs for the where the bus stops are. I did a lot of extra walking because I didn't know.

    The facts were fun, but unsure how true. The guide stated that someone corrected them in the past. It’s a nice walk when it’s not 113 degrees, so I do recommend doing it not in peak heat. It is also quite a walk so be prepared.
