After a quick ride from your Las Vegas hotel in one of our custom Pink Adventure Tour Trekker vehicles, you’ll be ready to explore Red Rock Canyon. Encompassing about 197,000 acres, the area features a wide range of ecosystems, wildlife and multicolored views. The stunning landscape has served as the backdrop for dozens of films and your guide will share more insight into the park’s place in film history.
First stop, the Visitor’s Center. Here, you may encounter charming desert tortoises in a protected habitat. You might even meet Mojave Max, the official mascot of the Mojave Desert. Browse more informative exhibits and shop for keepsakes.
Part of the Keystone Thrust, the Wilson Cliffs are 3,000 feet high and are a popular hiking and climbing destination. Thousands of years ago, Wilson Cliffs’ towering walls were the perfect canvas for tribal artwork. Your Certified Interpretive Guide will explain the meaning and history of these ancient pictographs.
Home to an impressive array of plants and wildlife, The Spring Mountains’ rich biodiversity thrives thanks to nearby springs that give the mountains their name. Don’t forget to ask your guide about the ponderosa pines and hundreds of plant species that flourish here.
Awaiting you near the end of your tour, the Calico Hills are truly a grand finale. These rock formations are ancient sand dunes with fossils of animals and plants preserved within their layers. Water is stored in natural tanks, which feed the area’s unique ecosystem. Depending on the time of day, you’ll see why these hills are named “Calico;” a kaleidoscope of pinks, reds and oranges shift with the changing light.
Before ending your incredible day, take the paved trail up to Red Rock Overlook. You’ll see all the landmarks from your tour at once and leave with incredible photos and memories of your beautiful Southwest adventure. Don’t forget to ask your expert guide any lingering questions on the ride back to your hotel.

The tour was quite amazing. Our Guide John Holmes picked up our group of 4 at the Park MGM on time as scheduled. On our way to the Canyon John immediately made us feel comfortable with his great sense of humour and personality. As we neared the Canyon John began to explain what we would be seeing on the tour. His knowledge of the area, the rock formations, vegetation, wildlife and inhabitants was thorough and extensive. We learned about the history of the canyon and how external influences changed it. John was very attentive and eager to answer all our questions. All in all a Great adventure. We returned from the tour with a greater understanding and appreciation for the natural beauty of the region. We would recommend John Holmes without hesitation as a tour guide to any one interested.
The tour was amazing. We learned a lot of new things about the the Red Rock Canyon and surrounding region. Our guide John Holmes explained in detail but in an interesting manner how the Canyon was formed and how it evolved to it's current state. He explained how the region changed over the centuries due to the environment and the human footprint. What was indigenous to the area and what was introduced to the area directly and indirectly, the native people and the immigrants that past through over the years
