One of the best experiences of a life time ! Our guide name was Ghryll , he has the skills of a great cook, very knowledgeable about the river, canyon, wildlife and so much more.... He made the whole experience perfect. Highly recommend this adventure, you will not regret a minute of it.

This was our second trip with these guys in two years. This time we did the surf and turf tour and what an amazing day. 13 miles of cycling, a great lunch at the Hoover Dam then on to Lake Mead for a couple of hours of Kayaking. Our guide Daniel was amazing and provided great details of history and... More

We spent three amazing days kayaking and camping on the shores of the Colorado. It's difficult to describe how enjoyable this adventure was. Our guide Ghryll was knowledgeable, skilled and extremely personable. He also fed us very, very well being a former chef. I thought beforehand that this would be a great trip and I have to say that it... More

When asked at the end of our trip to the Grand Canyon and Las Vegas, the teens all picked the 1 day hot springs hike that I bought on Groupon as their favorite part of the whole trip (and we did a lot). The hike is great, scenery beautiful, and our guide did a good job of adapting the hike... More

The best part of travelling to Vegas for me is exploring all that Nevada has to offer once you venture off the strip. My cycling tour of the area surrounding the Hoover Dam with Desert Adventures was top notch. Daniel was a great guide. We travelled primarily down hill from Boulder City to Hoover Dam on easy trails for 16... More

My boyfriend and I went to Vegas for the first time and we wanted to try something different than only walking the strip. We wanted to visit the grand canyon but all the tour were really pricy. We came across a great deal on groupon from Desert Adventure for a all day hike in white rock canyon to go see... More

My dughter and I just had an excellent time with Desert Adventures and our guide Ghryll on the 3 day Big Horn Classic. We are not campers, but a trip like this was on my bucket list. The canyon was awesome. All of the gear and food were high quality, well thought out and taken care of. Ghryll is an... More

Our guide, Gerald, did an excellent job with pacing our small group which included individuals with widely ranging hiking experience and ability. However, the hike really isn't for novices and Desert Adventures should do a much better job on all aspects of its communications. The website says the hike is 4 to 6 miles and when I inquired before booking... More

My sister and I had a wonderful daylong trip kayaking down the Black Canyon with Jenn and John as our guides. It was incredibly cool to start at the base of the Hoover dam and the natural scenery throughout the trip was wonderful. We enjoyed all the side trips into the canyons and caves and hot springs (ahhhhhh) and loved... More
