Owner description: We specialize in small group tours 14 people or less in a Mercedes Sprinter. We go to both the West Rim (Glass Skywalk)and South Rim (Grand Canyon National Park) of the Grand Canyon and give you your own time there. Having done this business for awhile, some do not want the traditional "hold your hand tour" and wish to do as they please. The ride there and back is comfortable in leather reclining seats, USB charging ports and outlets in every row. Avoid the crowded buses, ride in luxury.

“The highlight of our trip!”
Reviewed March 5, 2012

We've been to Las Vegas many times and wanted to try something different. After reading the reviews, my husband and I thought a trip to Red Rock Canyon would be fun. We were wrong -- it was FANTASTIC! I cannot recommend this tour highly enough -- well-organized, good pace, friendly guide, beautiful scenery. We took so many postcard photos! Thanks, Tom!

“GO! you will not regret it.”
Reviewed February 29, 2012

After 4 days on the strip, my husband and I were anxious for some quiet and nature. Tom was a wonderful tour guide, very knowledgeable, and very prepared. The hike was not too strenuous, but it definitely kept me warm, as it was a little cool when we went. He had extra jackets for people, hiking poles (made a world of difference!), gloves and a special treat at the top. He knew all about the local flora and fauna, and made sure everyone was comfortable with the skill level. I would highly recommend him, it is a great break from the noise and activity of the strip.

After 6 days in Vegas we were ready for some natural beauty, which we found at Red Rock Canyon - tour guide Tom was fantastic - knowledgeable, enthusiastic and well prepared - all in all a great short trip away from the unreality of Vegas

“Go on this tour, it's amazing!”
Reviewed February 21, 2012

We went on this tour purely based on reviews from trip advisor. And it totally lived up to the five stars! We were collected from Paris hotel and driven to red rock in a purpose built, clean, spacious vehicle. The guide Tom was super friendly and informative, very enthusiastic. We arrived at the stunningly beautiful red rock - Tom took the others on a brief scramble climb of the rock but as I hate heights, I stayed on a bit of the rock and sat enjoying the view. Tom kept checking on me and pointed out a bush to look for hummingbirds. When they returned, we headed on a leisurely walk of the canyon to a waterfall. Easy hike and breathtaking views. Tom even provided hot chocolate half way round from a bag that would make Mary Poppins proud! On the way back Tom drove to some amazing photo points, and extended our tour back to take a detour and try to see wild burros. We were successful, and the burros were beautiful. Awesome tour, unbelievably good value for money!

“Customize to the groups skills and wishes”
Reviewed February 20, 2012

Tom, thanks for a fantastic day in the Red Rock Canyon. Your passion about the area is contagious, your energy and willingness to stretch us helped us be immersed in so many beautiful sites, with a different appreciation from each angle during our walk.

I saw the note about someone less than 5 - the hike we took is not appropriate and risky because there is some climbing, a lot of rocky terrain.

Tom was able to point out so many things that I would have walked right by without noticing and appreciating. Because he customized to the skills and desires of the group we went about 5-6 miles with probably a "strenuous" definition.

We were there during an early sunset and the beauty over Rainbow Peak was breath taking. Seeing the mirroring in the "pooling" areas of the creek bed would have been a beautiful picture.
The beauty and quietness of just hearing the wind and seeing the beauty was awe inspiring and the proof to a larger meaning and place in life.
Thanks Tom!!!
