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.

Had a great time and met my expectations.
So much fun!
The tour was awesome! Captain Jack was a lot of fun!
The tour was excellent from pick-up to drop-off and everything in between. We had a wonderful time. Saw beautiful country.
Bill was amazing! He made the tour fun and exciting. We would definitely do another tour with him! Best tour guide we have ever worked with!
Love the small group vibe. Did a Pink Jeep tour with Gerry a couple of years ago and knew I wanted to do more exploring with your company!
The Red Rock Canyon with Rocky Gap was AMAZING. Being a Las Vegas local that has gone to Red Rock Canyon many times, the off road experience was so much fun!!!! I learned a great deal from our guide, Bill, through his engaging conversation, stories and humor!!!
the tour started 45 minutes after scheduled pick - up time. Because we were in an area without cell phone coverage, phone contact was impossible. However, we met up later with our tour guide who explained that a wheel bearing was overheating and he had to exchange vehicles. A perfectly reasonable reason.
