We went on a hike with Charles and Jay in mid-November. 6 of us (3 couples) were down from Canada, and went with Summit Adventures on a recommendation, and it was so worth it. The booking process was so easy, and communication was awesome. They picked us up in the morning, had our individual packs done up, took us out to Red Rock, and brought us back a the end of the day.
Our day included incredible knowledge about the area, wonderful conversation, and challenges for us when needed. The six of us made it to the summit of our hike. Charles and Jay ensured everyone was safe, comfortable, and enjoying themselves. What else could you ask for?
They even provided restaurant recommendations for a couple more days in town, and were bang on with that as well.
If you are looking for some fun outside in Las Vegas, this has got to be the best tour in the area. You will not be disappointed, as it was by far the highlight of our week long stay that included shows, food, and other fun. Get out there any enjoy it and check out their Facebook page. Thanks again Charles and Jay.

We used the services of Charles and Jay twice this year, as we live in Vegas part-time. They are excellent guides and adapt to the very experienced hiker and a novice hiker like myself. They discuss the landscape and all the native desert plants and history of the area. They challenged our nephew who is a good hiker and assisted me when needed. I would highly recommend their services. Red Rock is a beautiful area to hike in and there are trails for every level.

During a boring indoor academic conference I needed an outdoor experience, which are possible just outside Las Vegas.
The Summit Adventures guys–Charles and Jay–picked me up at my hotel and the fun began. They were friendly experts who care about the environment and a quality customer experience. Having hiked in the Alps, Andes and to the Everest base camp with world class guides over my 75 years, I think I can ID real pros. You simple cannot do better than Summit–they are an A+.

My aunt and I hiked red rock with Jay and Charles this past Sunday and LOVED it. These guys are great guides and are pros at what they do. Of course the views from the top are spectacular as well. Great experience overall! We would definitely do it again, Thanks guys!!

Jay and Charles guided Tess and I during a hiking trip at Red Rocks Canyon near Las Vegas on Independence Day 2016. These two are experts at what they do. They proved themselves quite knowledgeable too, as they pointed out the various plant and animal life, and the subtle geologic features of the canyon. They took us though the area, which at times was a little tough to negotiate, and made sure to point out good footholds along the way. They also reminded us to maintain three points of contact, and made sure that we were always aware of the thinner air at higher altitudes. When Tess developed a blister from her new shoes, both Jay and Charles sprang to action with their first aid kits, taped up Tess’s blister in no-time, and we were on our way. These gentlemen will keep you entertained with their humor as well. Tess and I had a blast, and will be sure to come back for another Las Vegas Summit Adventures guided tour soon.

We had so much fun this morning with Charles and Jay. They are extremely knowledgeable about the area and they are also a lot of fun. They also seemed to really care about our safety and comfort from the van ride to the hike. I would highly recommend booking a hike with them if you are in Las Vegas. It was the highlight of our trip!
