We had such a great day kayaking on the Colorado River. It was really hard to find these guys, but we're so glad we did. The service was personal and our guide's knowledge of the area was great. One of those days you'll remember forever, amazing!

I had the chance to spend some time out in Vegas a while back and though the sites and sounds of the strip are great the best part was when I went out canyoneering with the Desert Rats crew. I've done basic repels and climbs before and this was perfect no matter your experience level! It was also instructive and... More

My wife and I took out our teenagers on the all day trip down the Colorado River. We had a great time with John, our guide. His knowledge of the Dam was very informative, and my kids actually enjoyed it. We stopped along the way, and ate lunch, all while still being able to see wildlife and beautiful flowers and... More

I had the greatest time trying Canyoneering. The instruction was clear & precise. The fun & adventure was endless. I am going back in a couple of weeks to do this again. Highly recommend this place!

Desert RATS provided transportation from/to Vegas, kayaks & equipment, permits, lunch & snacks and a wonderful guide for our all day Colorado River trip below Hoover Dam. The tour consisted of just the two of us and Darrell, who was a great kayaking/hiking guide, always sharing his love of the sports and the area. No kayaking experience necessary. From sunrise...

This was the highlight of our entire trip to Las Vegas. This was the fourth time my wife and I had been to Las Vegas in the last 5 years and people always ask why we keep going back. This is the reason. We had a great time with John and the info and experiences he shared with us is... More

John, one of the owners of Desert RATS kindly took me out kayaking on Lake Mead, Nevada. He is very knowledgeable, personable and a great person to kayak with as he just seemed to know when to impart information and when to be still, so that we could enjoy the nature all around us. If you get the opportunity to... More

Went on a canoe trip in the early morning of july 5th. John picked us up at the hotel on time. John was very informative with things in the area. He was very friendly. We had never canoed before so john gave us lessons which was easy to understand. As we where paddling along we stopped at some hot springs.... More

We just returned from Vegas and I had to review this tour since it was our favorite. My wife and I went down the river beginning at Hoover Dam; roughly 12 miles total. Our guide's name was Darryl, a great guy with lots of knowledge and a respect for the river that surpasses the need to have constant conversation. We... More
