We booked the the rappelling tour with Awesome Adventure and, not only was it a great way to escape the excesses of the Strip, but the Valley of Fire should be a 'must see' for anyone visiting Las Vegas - the striking colours of the rock and the contrasting plants and sky are amazingly beautiful and just a short drive away. The rappelling itself was a great way to experience the environment, climbing to the top of a rocky outcrop and rewarded with spectacular views before descending a few 100 feet to the desert floor. Our instructors, Skyler and Tyler were friendly, knowledgable and informative. They showed a great deal of paitience and expertise so we felt safe and reassured - great for anyone who might feel a little bit nervous about the descent! We managed to fit in 3 rappels in the time slot and the guides provided plenty of water plus a packed sandwich lunch back at the base. On our return, our driver detoured to view some ancient Indian petroglyphs and some other interesting and scenic areas of the state park - in all, great value for money. This tour is well worth the short drive out of Las Vegas (handy pick up from most of the big hotels) and will be a very memorable experience to return home with.
