Scooter Car Tour of Red Rock Canyon with Transport from Las Vegas
This is a typical itinerary for this product
Stop At: Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, 3205 Nevada 159, Las Vegas, NV 89161
This fun, exciting scooter car tour will take you through Red Rock Canyon, a network of scenic canyons and surreal rock formations inside the Red Rock National Conservation Area. After hotel pickup in Las Vegas, your guide will drive you to the Summerlin area right near Red Rock, where you'll be assigned your scooter car, receive a safety overview, and take some practice runs. These easy-to-operate cars have no clutches or gears, and don't require a special license.
Aboard your 2-person, 3-wheel scooter car, follow your guide approximately 5 miles (8 km) through the Mojave Desert on a paved road and arrive at Red Rock Canyon. Stop first at the visitor's center, where you'll learn about the park’s flora and fauna, wildlife and native Paiute Indians who once lived off this land.
Next, your guide will lead the pack of scooter cars on the scenic 13-mile (21-km) loop through the canyon. Enjoy unobstructed 360-degree views of the landscape; see where professional rock climbers from all over the world come to climb; and keep your eyes out for wild burros, tortoises, jack rabbits and other wildlife.
At designated stops along the way, you’ll have time to switch drivers and explore on your own. Your guide will happily recommend great trails for you to hike, depending on your desired difficulty level. One great spot is High Point Overlook; at nearly 5,000 feet (1,524 meters) in elevation, this lookout point offers amazing views of the southern part of the Las Vegas Valley with almost 70 miles (113 km) of visibility looking out toward Los Angeles.
You'll spend approximately 3.5 hours driving and exploring on foot, and will cover at least 35 miles (56 km) round-trip from the start point in Summerlin. After your tour, you’ll be taken back to your Las Vegas hotel.

We booked this tour before leaving NZ as last year we had trouble booking it direct in Vegas. I am 70 years of age and had never driven in the USA but what a blast this trip was. Certainly gets the adrenaline going when driving down the highway in these scooters. The guides were great and very safety focused so we never felt at risk. Once in the desert you have time to take in your surroundings and find out more about the environment and what makes the desert tick. Thoroughly recommend this tour.
Excellent tour guides very fun, had 4 cars in our group from Nebraska. All 8 of us had a fantastic time. Really enjoyed both of our guides so fun. Thanks to them it was one of the best tours we have been on anywhere. Cody was our lead driver and not sure of the guides name that was in the back he was also exceptional good.
Cody and Eric were great. Loved the way they looked out for all of us. We had time to stop and take pictures. Cody even took pictures of all of us. Keeping us hydrated with water was a good idea. Even though the temp was 100 and we took the afternoon tour, it wasn't that bad. We suggest this tour to all.
My grandson loved it.
