Maneuvering a scooter requires only simple steering skills, passable balance, and the ability to ramp over sleeping hobos. Catch some air with today's Groupon: for $125, you and a partner get a double-occupancy scooter excursion to see Red Rock Canyon from Scoot City Tours (a $250 value). Shuttles are available from many nearby hotels, and the approximately five-hour tours run twice daily at 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. from April–October and once daily at 1 p.m. from November–March.

On Scoot City’s motorized tours, explorers navigate the Mojave Desert's Red Rock Canyon, home to gorgeous spans of golden and orange rock formations and an abundance of desert flora and fauna. Visitors hop into low-to-the-ground scooters, which offer unparalleled views of naturally rococo rockwork. The open-air design treats riders to sun, fresh air, and the distant moans of '70s rock stars still trying to find themselves after remaining in the desert for more than 35 years. Scooter fleets make an early stop at the brand-new visitor center for an enlightening history of the canyon before rumbling back up desert paths. After zooming almost 5,000 feet skyward to reach High Point Overlook, scooting twosomes can relax and take in the canyon’s mountainous majesty or rename the environs’ 600+ plant species for botanists who prefer pig Latin. Striking desertscapes and birds’-eye tableaux make the tour an exciting and naturalistic alternative to the Strip’s pervasively neon habitat.

Scoot City Tours

Johnny Yeager originally ran a Las Vegas advertising and rental business. That changed after he saw the way people gawked at one of his company's bright red, three-wheeled scooters as it cruised through Red Rock Canyon. Beginning in 2008, Johnny experimented with using the little two-seater vehicles to ferry clients through tours of the Las Vegas landscape. Slowly, the visibility of the scooters along the Strip and at local attractions created a buzz among tourists. It wasn’t long before Johnny's advertising business had become a booming scooter tour service thanks to social media and a charismatic troupe of guides, all well-versed in the local hotspots and best ways of sneaking scooters into buffet lines. The little red scooters go on daily tours of the Strip and have also been joined by guided car- and van-borne excursions to Sedona and Red Rock Canyon.

The scenery was beautiful and the guides were a blast.

The little scooters are very fun and easy to operate. The staff is very safety conscious and makes sure that everyone has a good time.
