“Incredible!”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

My friends and I spent a week in LV and this was definitely the highlight of our trip. Neil was a wonderful guide: attentive, knowledgeable, and a fantastic photographer. If you are thinking about a hike in LV, this is a must.

“Once again amazing!!!!!”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

2 years ago I booked a Hike This tour for myself and my husband. We had a fantastic experience, the highlight of our trip to Vegas. Yesterday we went again with 7 friends and we had another amazing morning. Neil is a great guide, so easy to be around. The service he offers is fantasic, kind, thoughtful and very accomodating. The canyon itself was breathtaking. The Hike was tailored to the needs of the group, a (couple had injuries.) everyone felt safe and comfortable but Neil built in some optional adventures for the members of the group who were up for it. Without reservation you should book this trip, an amazing experience with a fantastic guide!!!

“INCREDIBLE way to do Red Rock Canyon!”
Reviewed March 28, 2013

We took this particular trip as a delayed honeymoon / anniversary trip just over a year ago. Knowing we wanted to see more of the surrounding area than just "The Strip", and loving the outdoors like we do, this Rock Scramble was perfect! It ended up being the highlight of our trip. We never expected it to be what it was. He asked if we would like our hike to be easy, moderate or extreme and we picked moderate to extreme. It was incredibly beautiful hiking through the canyons of the Calico Basin, up to the giant boulder peak for amazing views, drinks and snacks, and down through some very cool crevasses' on the way back. There is a trip for everyone. Neil is a great person in general, his knowledge of the area is vast, makes things fun and very comfortable we actually felt like we had known him forever and had a great time. He takes everyone's ability in consideration an will tailor it to to that. He will change it up for you along the way if your confidence begins to build. All in all It was one of the more incredible things we've ever done (along with white water rafting the New River Gorge, WV). We would never have seen Red Rock Canyon the same way without seeing it Neil's way...

“The reason we go to Vegas....”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

This is our second time hiking with Neil - and the real reason we chose to come back to Vegas for another vacation. A couple of years ago, we had a group of 4 out in Vegas and did a rock scramble with him - and despite having done some other adventures on the vacation, the one with Neil was the highlight. As a matter of fact we've done numerous adventures over the past 10 years with various outfitters and guides - but Neil is the one that none can surpass.

So this time we had 5 of us (40 and 50 something adults plus a 21 year old celebrating his birthday) and we ALL specifically chose Vegas so we could do another hike with Neil. We didn't know how he could wow us again but he did - and even the 21 year old was more interested in hiking with Neil than drinking and gambling.

You just don't know what you're missing if all you do in Vegas is the "strip" and you don't find out what all the area has to offer - and you don't know what you're missing if you don't let Neil show you what that is - it's an incredibly beautiful area that most folks probably never see.

But Neil figures out what you're looking for, offers some knowledgeable options, and then makes sure that everyone in the group (regardless of the variety of experience, skills and comfort level) has a great time. A seemingly impossible task that Neil pulls of with ease. It's like going out for some fun with your best friend or your brother - you just feel like you've known him forever.

Neil is just absolutely the "best show" in Vegas - so don't miss it!

“Highlight of our trip!”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

We were in Las Vegas for a few days back in November and our rock scramble with Neil with definitely the highlight of our trip! I would recommend this to anyone who loves hiking and getting out of the city to enjoy the natural beauty of red rock country! It is wonderful to have a personalized trip from such an experienced pro, and the pics he takes and sends to you afterward are wonderful!
