Spending time in the desert can make one feel vulnerable due to the intense temperatures, sparse population, and ability of cacti to smell fear. Challenge nature’s wild beauty with today’s Groupon: for $65, you get an all-day Hoover Dam and Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area tour from Quality Tours of Las Vegas (a $155 value).
Quality Tours of Las Vegas shepherds guests through natural wonders in Nevada with all day tours of the historic Hoover Dam and the breathtaking beauty of Red Rock Canyon. In the golden 7 a.m. light, experienced tour guides pick up intrepid trekkers at their hotels before escorting them to the Hoover Dam Bypass to soak in views of placid Lake Mead and its encircling bathtub ring. From the bypass, tour takers journey to the dam itself, wandering around the towering, arched monolith protruding proudly from the rugged mountains.
The manmade wonder is juxtaposed with the natural beauty and goliath rock formations at Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, an expansive protected wilderness dotted with jutting ridges and squat Joshua trees. The tour traverses a 13-mile loop in the air-conditioned vehicle, allowing guests to watch impossibly large clouds scrape across the desert sky, throwing shifting shadows on mountain faces tattooed with bold red stripes and cursive loves notes to Mom.
