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.

John was knowledgeable, friendly and humorous. He seemed to really enjoy the job and have a passion for the importance of preserving the landscape. The tour was perfect for us to get a glimpse of the landscape. We hope to come back and take the Grand Canyon tour with you some day!
Excellent!! Great way to see Red Rock Canyon!
It was a perfect half day tour with plenty of variety and interest.
Excellent tour and very informative.
Tour was exactly what we wanted, a chance to see the area out of the city. Duncan was an excellent, personable tour guide. Besides knowing about the vegetation, wildlife, and geology of the area, he was very personable. He called us by our names, was willing to take pictures (some good suggestions here) and even told us some stories of “local color” on the way back to the strip. We would recommend this tour and Duncan to any of our friends traveling to Las Vegas.
It was very good! Would have been nice to see a local ranch as well.
Tour experience was very well done both enjoyable & relaxing.
The entire tour was great. Shanin Davis explained everything nice and even took some great pictures, particularly the double pose using the Panorama setting of the mobile phone. Thanks Shanin.
