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.

Overall amazing. Great variety of activities, saw many different parts of the park. Did not feel rushed at all. Our group was very small and I appreciated that more than anything. 6 should be the max for comfort. The tour guide Jack was phenomenal; kind, knowledgeable, easy to get along with; great guy.
It was excellent. Ron could tell we were hikers and took us on a few short walks to see more of the pictographs. He also provided lots of water and cool towels which helped with the heat
Tara was amazing! She was very knowledgeable and accommodated the needs of our group.

Tara, did a fantastic job! She was very personable , informative, and fun! I would highly recommend her to any individual or group.
Your instructions were fine, we found MGM’s map of the property on the inside was confusing to get to the exit and know it was the right one. MGM’s strip entrance is poor in layout compared to many others. Your driver was exactly where he was promised to be.
The tour was great! But, the van pick up had us in the bus for an hour and 15 minutes prior to getting to Red Rock. That is just too long and detracted from the total experience.
The tour was great, the time we spent at Red Rock Canyon was incredible. Scott did a great job of keeping us entertained and informed, give that guy a raise! Unfortunately, we had a negative experience during the shuttle to the tour and back from the tour, and to me it's all part of the experience.
The Rocky gap tour was amazing! Beautiful scenery and our guide, Bill, was fantastic. Highly recommended.
Great tour and bill was amazing!
