Nature next to neon
JuanCarlos_V, Apr 2024
We decided to take this tour, to get a view of the non-Las Vegas, Las Vegas. Steve picked us up exactly (I mean to the minute, 8:27 AM) and we headed out with a group of 10 towards the Red Rock area. Steve is very knowledgeable and provided all sorts of ecological and botanical data to enhance the experience. He was mindful to stop for pictures (he knows all the "Kodak moments" locations) and took us to several small towns in the area, stopping for bio breaks in several locations and a great little restaurant for a delicious homemade blueberry muffin. We visited a preserve area for a short very manageable hike and a house once owned by the homesteaders in the area. All in all, a very nice break from the concrete and neon, but also a refreshing nature experience, with great guidance by Steve.
Stunning. Just stunning.

The beautiful countryside of Las Vegas
Geneva_P, Mar 2024
The beautiful side of Las Vegas! Wonderful and informative tour guide shared his love of this area. We enjoyed the scenery and even got to see many of the wild burros roaming through the area. The nature trail can be difficult as you climb to the look out area. Just go slow and carefully as they will wait for you. Beautiful view awaits. The farm and little towns were also beautiful. Very nice clean comfortable 12 passenger van used .
Great trip with a terrific guide Steve
