The pick up for this tour was located conveniently in central downtown, and my only small criticism for the day is that I was told 9-930 by the company and received a message from our fantastic guide Zack 20 mins before saying they were waiting for me. The transfer to and from Willow beach was enjoyable and included interesting stops en route so I'd recommend this too. We were given a brief on arrival by Zack and Jordan his land based comrade and released onto the water. The kayaking was good fun and we were well looked after all the way. We were given enough space and freedom to take pictures of the wonderful scenery and enjoy the experience. The stop for a short walk up the hill was very informative about the local ecology and we got more pictures with Zack taking time to photograph us. the emerald cave was awe inspiring, and the trip a little further up the river to see the workspace attached to the rock wall gave an insight into the history. A magical day. Thanks to all involved

Our guide Jordan was great. Very understanding of everyone’s skill levels, and knowledgeable about the area. Its a little bit of a workout but that’s as expected. Also waited for us when running late. Thank you again

Was a wonderful experience... our guide Sam was great. Very friendly and gave us a lot of history of the area. We had a blast!!! Highly recommended doing when visiting Las Vegas

From start to finish it was awesome. Very knowledgeable and polite guide. Scenery is amazing. Worth every single penny. Must do while you are in Vegas!

Amazing day. Beautiful scenery, comfortable vehicle, small group with lots of time at stops. Just as the description said. Would 100% recommend
