“Rock scrambling in Vegas”
Reviewed February 13, 2014 via mobile

Wow what a fabulous new way to see Vegas. I have been to Vegas many time having once lived in LA. But never have I ventured away from all the glam and excitement of the strip. Well now every time it come back to Vegas I will give Neil a call and book a hike or rock scramble. The views are awesome, the guide amazing and the exercise felt great. Neil is a great guide very knowledgable and he makes you feel safe even if like me you are a little terrified of the heights. He made the whole experience .. Just that an awesome experience. He picks you up from your hotel has snacks, water, backpack even sunscreen - all you need to bring is a decent pair of shoes and a little love for adventure. He took 50 photos for us and then sent the file to our computer that night so need to even take a camera. He can make the hike or rock scramble to match your ability and he made it effortless.
Thanks Neil we will be back. I highly recommend him to anyone who wants to see or do something a little different with your Vegas trip. Don't worry the canyon closes at dark and the strip is always open!

“Hike - Rock Scramble”
Reviewed January 4, 2014

We originally booked a hike and ended up doing the Rock Scramble. Having a knowledgeable and friendly guide makes a morning hike in the Red Rock Canyon an unforgettable experience. We took routes that we could never have attempted on our own to get to the top and had a magnificent view of the canyon. Thanks Neil for making our trip to Vegas and experience with nature and not just bright lights, entertainment and action.

“A Wonderful Experience”
Reviewed December 29, 2013

Our rock scramble on December 25th with Neil went way beyond expectations. I can't speak highly enough of Neil's consideration and knowledge in making this one of the best experiences of my life. He also kindly took all the photos we needed as a record of our memorable time and emailed them to us in super-fast time. Neil supplied a delicious snack of cheese and apple plus trail bars, with plenty of water. We were lucky enough to see a group of Big Horn Sheep on the way up. We came to Las Vegas to explore the big outdoors and thought it would be a one-off trip but I would most definitely come back to do this again.

“A Memorable Day”
Reviewed December 29, 2013 via mobile

On Christmas Day Neil picked us up from our hotel and drove us out to Red Rock Canyon. He asked us what sort if hike we would like to do and we opted for an off trail hike. The weather could not have been more perfect. Neil takes photos throughout the hike, he is a great photographer, and promptly sent us the link and zip file of all 86 photos. He brings snacks and water too.
The hike itself is really fantastic, challenging, but achievable, with Neil's expert guidance. He has a wealth of knowledge about the local flora and fauna and a quirky sense of humour which kept us all entertained.
This really was one of the best things I have ever done and certainly was a brilliant way to spend Christmas Day. Thanks again Neil.
