Enhance your Red Rock Canyon Classic Tour with a rollicking off-road ride. See all the same sights and natural landmarks, with the addition of a fun jaunt in our custom-built Wranglers. After a quick trip from your Las Vegas hotel, you’ll hop into our signature Pink® Jeep® Wrangler and begin your trek. You’ll love the open-air experience and elevated panoramic views.
First stop, the Visitor’s Center. You’ll see desert tortoises in a protected habitat, and—if you’re lucky—meet the Mojave Desert’s official mascot: Mojave Max. Get your fill of educational exhibits and souvenir shopping before jumping back in the Jeep.
Next, head out on a scenic 13-mile ride through the desert. Your guide will treat you to an incredible view from Red Rock Overlook and other outlooks along the way. Don’t hesitate to ask for periodic pit stops at any other compelling places you spot.
Along your journey, you’ll enjoy views of the 3,000-foot-tall Wilson Cliffs (also known as the Keystone Thrust). Thousands of years ago, they were a natural canvas for ancient tribes. Their art is still visible today, and your Certified Interpretive Guide will tell you all about them.
As you roll into The Spring Mountains, named for their numerous streams, you’ll see an impressive array of flora and wildlife. Ask your guide about the 600 species of plants that flourish here, and keep your eyes peeled for animals scampering through the brush.
The kaleidoscopic colors of Calico Hills are next. Watch the hillsides for a display of pinks, oranges and reds that change throughout the day. Your expert guide can also point out the natural tanks that store water in the hills, along with ancient plants and animals preserved in the layers of ancient dunes.
Now things are about to get even more exciting. Your guide is not only an expert in natural landscape and landmarks, but also a trained off-road driver. Hang on as they pilot the Pink® Jeep® Wrangler over the loose terrain and steep hills of Rocky Gap Road. An old wagon route used by pioneers, this trail is truly rugged, so get ready for a fun ride and enjoy your chance to see what these custom-built vehicles can do!
Your tour includes bottled water and any necessary parking and admission fees so you can focus on fun.

Great. Guide was exceptionally knowledgeable and friendly.
The tour was so much more than we expected. The off road portion of the tour was definitely the highlight along with our jeep driver/guide, Bill, and Scott who drove us to and from Red Rock Canyon.
Great, Bob was amazing
We had chosen this tour because of the off road aspect. From the beginning to the end, everything was well thought out and executed. We were picked up by Scott, who made the drive go by really fast. He had fun conversation starters and was fun to talk to. Upon arriving, we were grouped with Bill as our driver and guide. He really knows the area and takes extra time to shownyou the land and the plants. These extra details really made the trip special. Plus, grrat photo ops!
The tour was absolutely wonderful, and easily the best thing my friend and I did in Las Vegas. Bill was so knowledgable about the area, was fun and easy-going, and completely open to our (many) questions that he always had an answer to. He was laid back but we still stayed on schedule and NEVER felt rushed. I loved that he was also willing to take lots of pictures of us (and even showed us some great pictures to take) and that he let us just stare off into the distance to enjoy how beautiful it was. I also loved the addition fun things we did, like breathing on the flower and smelling it (which also taught me a lot about how desert plants survive), and giving us some desert sage to smell. Seeing the tortoises was also great, which Bill also knew so much about. Bill was also really personable and knew all of our names, so it felt like everyone on the group were already friends. He made us all feel welcome and encouraged conversation between us, so it wasn't like we were only talking to one person. You could go solo and Bill would make you feel just as welcome. It was fantastic. Honestly, everything about it was wonderful. I don't have any suggestions on how to make it better because it was amazing!
Overall such an amazing experience!!! I will definitely be recommending this tour to anyone I know who will be in the area! Special thanks to Bill, and our shuttle driver for such an amazing experience!!!
Tour was great. It was entertaining but also left time to take it all in
It took us a while to find the place at Caesars where we needed to be to catch the bus
Overall great experience and I have complaints. So glad I took this tour. Highlight of my trip to Vegas
Informative, fun, great for guides
