Tours are an ideal way for anyone to learn more about a new city without resorting to drastic measures such as running for mayor. Get acquainted with Las Vegas the easy way with today's Groupon: for $49, you get the Red Rock Canyon/City Highlights tour at Annie Bananie's Wild West Tours (up to a $99 value).
Annie Bananie's Wild West Tours lead journeys through the usually unseen desert sights surrounding the bright lights of Las Vegas. For the Red Rock Canyon/City Highlights tour, guides donning western attire lead the way on a roughly four-hour bus expedition that begins on the Las Vegas strip before heading out to the desert, sharing tales of history, geology, and western culture along the way.
Listen to guides quip about the strip and Chinatown before stopping for a photo opportunity at the famous Las Vegas sign. Sightseers will enjoy a 13-mile scenic drive through Red Rock Canyon, with stops along the way to gawk at various geological anomalies. View epic red sandstone mountains, petrified sand dunes, Native American pictographs, and the possibly 65 million-year-old Keystone Thrust Fault. You may also spot fascinating plant life, such as the Joshua tree, cacti, and yucca, as well as big-horned sheep, wild horses, and Doug, the desert’s monocle-wearing bald eagle. To round out the tour, one of the stops includes a visit to the engrossing displays at the exhibit-laden visitor’s center, complete with a nifty gift shop.
Annie Bananie's Wild West Tours include all park admissions, bottled water, a complementary gift, and drivers will pick up and drop off tour-takers from any of the major hotels on the Las Vegas strip.
