Mona_S, Nov 2023
Amazing tour! Fantastic tour guide!
I picked the “easy” hike which was still about 2 hours long and described as “friendly plus”. We (2 adults) took the 0600 tour. Great communication with Sarah that morning. Clean, nice van. She had drinks, snacks, medical kit. She was very knowledgeable. Overall excellent tour! We enjoyed it very much. Definitely recommend!

Pictures can’t show the real beauty.
Scenery and hike was great, better than we expected. The YouTube videos we watched before going does not do justice to this hike. Our guides name was Nick , he was very knowledgeable and an all around nice guy. It’s definitely worth a return trip.

Don’t miss this tour!
Daniel was a fantastic tour guide! He is very knowledgeable about the park and will tell you as little or as much as you desire to know. Pickup time was punctual from our hotel and our tour was a total of 5 people. The tour felt like the right length of time. Arriving to the park early was also a plus because we missed the crowds. Don’t miss out on seeing Valley of Fire State Park when you visit Vegas!

People Also Ask
Q:Is Valley of Fire State Park worth visiting?
A:Yes, Valley of Fire State Park is absolutely worth visiting. Not only is it Nevada’s first state park—and one of its most popular—it’s less than an hour from Vegas. And if you can go early on a weekday when the crowds are smaller, you’ll find a red-rock wonderland full of petroglyphs and desert scenery that’s hard to beat.
Q:How much time do you need at Valley of Fire State Park?
A:While a full day will give you the chance to hike out on the trails and grab a picnic and some solitude, if you only have a few hours, it’s still worth visiting. The two main roads through the park offer plenty of parking and views, making a scenic drive (with some leg stretching) an excellent way to spend a morning or afternoon.
Q:What else is near Valley of Fire State Park?
A:You can turn your trip to Valley of Fire State Park into a day trip pretty easily—stop by the Las Vegas Motor Speedway on your way out of town, witness the Nellis Dunes, tour the Lost City Museum, or make it a full outdoorsy day with a stop at Lake Mead National Recreation Area.
Q:Which is better, Valley of Fire or Red Rock?
A:Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area is undoubtedly cool and closer to Las Vegas than Valley of Fire State Park. That said, most people think Valley of Fire is worth the longer trip—it’s more diverse, with thousands of petroglyphs, rock arches, slot canyons, and more.
Q:How long does it take to drive through Valley of Fire State Park?
A:If you’re speeding through Valley of Fire State Park, it won’t take long—the main road is around 10 miles (16 kilometers) long. But, naturally, you’ll want to stop and take in the views, maybe go on a hike, or pause for a picnic. If you want to take a leisurely scenic drive, allow 2–3 hours for your trip.
Q:Can you take rocks from Valley of Fire?
A:No, you cannot take rocks from Valley of Fire State Park—the park authorities are very clear on that. You also can’t take plants, animals, fossils, or anything else. Like anywhere on public lands, take only photographs, leave only footprints. These are vulnerable areas, and they deserve all visitors’ respect and care.
