    I like to read a few reviews before booking activities, so I'm gonna shoot you straight... First - Antonio was a freaking rockstar!! Such a fun-spirited and extremely knowledgeable guide. He has a passion for what he does. When he says he's there for anything you need, he means it! That guy deserves a raise. Lol. Second - the details... 1. when Viator describes it as moderately challenging, they mean it. I hike a lot (TN) but the heat in NV/AZ is unforgiving so if you're not a local, stay hydrated. 2. It is described as 6 hours. It is, but distance wise you're going 7-8 miles, just an FYI. The last mile has about a 1200 ft elevation gain on the way out, so save some energy. 3. Hot springs - (in the middle) you will walk through them and may not want wet socks for the remainder of the hike. Bring a fresh pair of socks or pack sandals in your bag, there is time and a place to swap shoes. You can do the springs barefoot but the bottom is like pea-gravel so if you're tenderfooted, opt for the sandals. The views are incredible!! Thoroughly enjoyed this trip! Hope this helps.

    Hi Brittany, Thank you for passing on this useful information for future guests! We agree with you, Antonio IS a rockstar! We hope that you come see us again for another adventure soon.
    The hike of perseverance!
    SapinahItam, Apr 2023
    For someone who had some hiking experience, it was quite intense for me. I would begin with a good level of fitness as there are ropes and some climbing and sliding in between boulders. A lot of perseverance to get to the best part! The hot spring was amazing as it has some healing properties which was worth it. Antonio was my personal guide with years of experiences and he always had my back most of the time when I nearly slipped or needed an extra pull. You can tell he loves what he does! Definitely recommended!
    Response from Host, Apr 2023
    Hi there, We are so glad you had a great time. We agree, Antonio is the best! We hope that you come back and see us again for another adventure soon.

    Excellent Las Vegas Day Trip
    Hilary_L, Jan 2023
    Great challenging winter hike. Neil was a great guide and very patient. The hot springs were amazing and well worth the time and effort. Would definitely do this again if back in Las Vegas to take a break from the city.
    Response from Host, Jan 2023
    Hi Hilary, we're so glad you had a great hike! Winter is the perfect time for a hike to the springs! We look forward to your next trip!
    Amazing hike with a great hike-guide
    birenoberoi_o, Jan 2023
    Our hiking guide, Antonio, was amazing! He was extremely knowledgeable on very unique details of the topography, geography, the foliage along our hike, Hoover dam, hot springs, and other very cool stuff! All this information added so much more to an already fantastic hike we were on! We would definitely love to go hiking and kayaking again with Desert Adventures!
    Response from Host, Jan 2023
    Hi there, We are so happy that you enjoyed your hot springs hike with Antonio. Please come see us again the next time you are in town. We have many adventures waiting for you!
    Amazing 7 mile hiking...
    Anna_R, Oct 2022
    Amazing 7 mile hiking trip!! Gorgeous weather in October and the springs were a fantastic soak. Antonio our guide was very informing and great company. My boyfriend enjoyed this birthday gift. Definitely recommend but be sure you are ok with hiking in gravel (although it’s not that bad).
    Response from Host, Dec 2022
    Hi Anna, thank you for your review. We're glad you enjoyed the hike! Maybe you can come back for your birthday and try another hike or paddle trip!
    The hike of a lifetime
    Leslie_M, May 2022
    I did this excursion for my husbands birthday. It was definitely worth the money. It was just my husband and I with the guide Neil(who was great) so we was able to set the pace of the hike. It is challenging on some parts of the hike so be prepared. The hot springs was awesome. I would do this again!
    Response from Host, May 2022
    Hi Leslie! Yes, we too hope you can join us again in the future. We're so glad you had a great time. Next time maybe you can try a kayak tours or other scenic hike or bike!
    A hike to remember!!!

    Best hike I’ve Experienced!
    Jayme_P, Feb 2022
    Hands down the best hike I have ever been on! I am a big traveler and every place I go I plan hikes! This hike was challenging, stunning, adventurous and the hot spring’s were insanely cool! Our guide was incredible as well and we felt well prepared for a safe hike with him guiding us! If you are hesitant about booking or not, do not hesitate! Do it! You literally will not regret it! We all had a blast! Thank you so much for this wonderful experience and memory!

    Nice hike
    ZuzanaD, May 2021
    Nice hike. Opportunity to take a dip in Colorado river and hot spring made it special. Do not go if you expect a pleasure walk in flip flops. I was glad to go with a guide Neil.
    Response from Host, May 2021
    Hi Zuzana, We're so glad you enjoyed the hike! We hope you come back again for your next adventure!
    PERFECT!!
    Tisheyia_B, Apr 2021
    This was probably one of the most exciting, beautiful, adventurous and body pushing experiences of my life, and every bit of it was AMAZING! Please ask for Kevin! If was definitely a pleasure to have a tour guide who was an amazing person! Definitely made the hike that much better! PERFECT EXPERIENCE!
    Response from Host, Apr 2021
    Hi! We are happy that you had the perfect experience and learned a bit about what you are made of in the meantime. That makes it all worth it. We hope to see you again soon.
    Super Hike Worth the $!
    dberling, Mar 2021
    We had a great hike with Neil. He was very informative and helpful. We originally thought we could do this hike on our own but now realize that we'd probably still be out there wandering around lost! Neil showed us things on the path that only a trained guide would know and took us off the common trail to climb. We loved the hot springs too. This was a very cool thing to add to the typical Vegas trip and we are so glad we did it.
    Response from Host, Mar 2021
    Oh my! We are so happy you chose to go with us and you were in good hands with Neil. We hope you come back and see us for another adventure soon.
    Black Canyon hike with hot water springs
    Cosmopolitan5628, Nov 2018
    Scott was an excellent tour guide. He was prepared with extra food, water, and other supplies we may have needed. Scott provided information about the environment and what to avoid for our safety. It is a great hike for families. However, you should be able to hike 7 miles.

    Gail M, Jan 2017
    Great tour - our guide Reid did a great job of selecting a route that challenged the group to stretch our boundaries, but never put anyone at risk. I learned a ton about the history and environment of the area, and had a great time doing it. I highly recommend this tour to anyone who enjoys an active day excursion

    Fantastic experience! Just the right amount of challenge. Guide was delightful and stressed safety which is very important to this senior citizen. I wanted to sign to go kayaking with this company in the next 2 days, but, unfortunately no one else signed up. (: JC

    Catherine S, Apr 2013
    The hike was awesome. We saw mountain sheep, lizards, took a soak in the hot springs and a dip the Colorado River. Our guide Antonio was very knowledgeable and kept us safe on a trail that was definitely not for beginners. Ropes and boulders involved in certain areas added to the experience and level of difficulty.
