What people are saying about Las Vegas

We were able to visit the Valley of Fire as a small group. 10 was a much better number then the big busses. We had a guide who pointed out all the site and more. Before we left we even got to see long horn sheep. Not just one but a baby with both parents. We even learned what plants they eat. Plus what we could survive on if we got lost in the dessert. We stopped at the little museum to see their information, grab a bathroom break and even an ice cream - it was a hot day. I am really glad we had Mark as our driver he really went out of his way for us. We even started our day with a picture at the Welcome to Las Vegas sign. Some of the best pictures I have were taken that day by Mark.

I loved the experience, a very beautiful show that you can't miss, we were at the top and you can see very well from anywhere in the theater, but I recommend you compare closer places, if you have the possibility, because the prices They are steep but worth it.

We thoroughly enjoyed this trip. The Colorado River is beautiful and the views as we kayaked were wonderful. We also enjoyed having some time to stop off and swim in the river and the opportunity to take photos.

Sam was an excellent guide showing real passion for his region. Very dynamic and energetic guy. Great adventure on the Colorado river.

Hostess, tour guide Tricia was amazing. Nothing was ever too much. Sights out of this world, And I mean it.
