My husband and I did a three day tour from Las Vegas to Horseshoe Bend, Antelope Valley, Bryce, and Zion Canyon. We were actually a repeat because we had traveled with Detours in March to the Grand Canyon and Sedona. Rachel did such a fantastic job arranging a terrific itinerary from the start.. Our tour guide for three day, Jimmy Vegas, was also fantastic -- so informative and entertaining too. We have already recommended them to one person and we just returned a few days ago. Highly recommend.

Well, for some reason, TripAdvisor let me post my pictures yesterday, but did not post my review to go with it. Our family of 4 did a private tour to Valley of Fire and Zion National Park from Las Vegas. It is a long trip, but so worth it. Jimmy Vegas was once again our guide, and if you read my review of our trip to the Grand Canyon in April, you know that we think he is great. Jimmy picked us up at our hotel at 6:30 am in a shiny Lincoln Navigator and off we went. The first stop was Valley of Fire. There we saw beautiful rock formations, petroglyphs, and Big Horn Sheep. Jimmy knew the best spots for photo ops. From there we traveled across Arizona into Utah and to Zion. We stopped and ate at a nice restaurant just outside the park, that had a great view of the canyon. After eating we went inside the park. Thankfully, Detours has a pass that allows them to drive into the park instead of having to take shuttle busses. That was a really big perk. Once there we hiked up to the middle pools overlooking the canyon and the Virgin River. We were able to take in the beauty from several different elevations. Also, there were two routes to hike up, and Jimmy knew the one that was less strenuous, and took us on that one. Overall, the day was absolutely wonderful. If you are in the Vegas area and thinking of doing a tour somewhere, Detours should definitely be your tour of choice, and especially Jimmy Vegas if you can get him. There is such an advantage on taking the private tours versus the group tours that you will get to see and learn things that you never would on the group tour. Plus, if you get Jimmy Vegas, by the time your tour is over, he will make you feel like you are family.

Anyone can drive (or be driven) from Las Vegas to the Grand Canyon. What changes that drive from aimless sightseeing to an engaging field trip is your guide. Without trying to sound melodramatic, "Jimmy Vegas" of Detours of Nevada was the quintessential guide. His knowledge from the start of the tour to finish was practically encyclopedic (or "Wikipedic" nowadays...), and he presents the information in a way that makes you feel like he's having a conversation with you, instead of reciting a script. In fact, he made a point to tell my family that's how he conducts his narrative, because it engages with his clients. Our tour was a private one from Mandalay Bay to the West Rim of the Grand Canyon. As my family has never taken a private tour before, we were apprehensive of spending 10 hours with a man we'd have never met until he picked us up in the SUV that morning. But Jimmy put us at ease by making a quick stop at the "Welcome to Las Vegas" sign for a picture, then sharing breakfast with us in Boulder City. Since we left early (6:30 am), we had enough time to go at a moderate pace and still beat the tour buses to the Grand Canyon. Given Detours' relationship with the Hualapai Tribe, they are allowed to drive the SUV directly into the National Park, so we were able to get to the West Rim Skywalk before the crowds came. We declined to go on it, but it was really nice to know that we weren't going to have to wait for an hour if we wanted to do it. We were also able to traverse from place to place without having to slog on the shuttle buses. As we moved from place to place, Jimmy suggested the best places and poses for memorable photos, and everything came out sensationally. He was very considerate of my elderly parents, making sure they were taken care of in the 100-degree heat. And somehow, he presented Guano Point in such a way that my wife, son and I - who were terrified of even considering going to the top of it when we pulled up in the SUV - actually scaled it and relished the incredible view. (He knew the "secret, easy way" to get to the top.) On the way back, he made a point to stop at a local rock shop so my wife could fulfill a promise to her father, and also had a "wildlife surprise" for us in Boulder City. Jimmy was consistently going above and beyond the entire day without appearing like he was going above and beyond. You never know when the memories of a lifetime will etch themselves indelibly in your mind. Our Las Vegas to Grand Canyon trip has managed to get there for us, and it's all due to Jimmy. If you are giving even an inkling of a thought of booking a private tour to the Grand Canyon and can get Jimmy as your guide, book it ASAP.
