But almost everyone enjoys having the chance to experience the environment, especially monuments and natural or manmade wonders. It’s a different side of Nevada and our neighboring states.
Las Vegas (Vocus) May 10, 2010
TourGuy.com, a new tour and travel source for adventure and ecotourism tours, launched its first major market, encompassing the tours around the Las Vegas metropolitan area during National Travel And Tourism Week, May 8 to May 16.
The new tour site provides reviews and discounts on all types of tours — helicopter, airplane, jeep, motor coach, horseback, all-terrain vehicle (ATV), kayak, raft — and other Things to do in Las Vegas. Las Vegas was chosen as the first travel and tourism destination for the diversity of its natural offerings.
“When people think of Las Vegas, they always think of casinos,” said James Hoke, president of TourGuy.com, LLC. “There is so much more to explore and discover using this city as an adventure and ecotourism hub across four states including Arizona, California, Nevada, and Utah.”
Combined, TourGuy.com will launch with more than 30 tours. Initial Las Vegas Tours include trips to the west and south rims of the Grand Canyon (Arizona); Hoover Dam, Lake Mead, Red Rock Canyon, and Valley of Fire (Nevada), Bryce Canyon and Zion National Park (Utah); and Death Valley (Nevada/California).
How the tours are enjoyed can be equally diverse. TourGuy.com has teamed with Las Vegas tour operators that offer a variety of pedestrian, horseback, air travel, and ground tours. According to Hoke, the variety of Las Vegas tours was chosen to offer experiences that range from comfortable, air conditioned buses and luxury hybrid SUVs to horses that transverse steep desert gullies and extreme desert race cars.
“Some people want an experience they will never forget and some people want some time to unwind,” Hoke says about Las Vegas visitors. “But almost everyone enjoys having the chance to experience the environment, especially monuments and natural or manmade wonders. It’s a different side of Nevada and our neighboring states.”
Despite the diversity of Las Vegas tours, Hoke says TourGuy.com is selective. While the company allows consumers to rate tours, TourGuy.com will only include tours that meet certain criteria, including friendly and knowledgeable guides, the highest safety standards for specific tours, a lower frequency of scheduled tours, and a commitment to “leave no trace” principles.
“We are very sensitive to the preservation of national parks and historic sites,” said Hoke. “It was one of our first commitments in selecting the highest quality tours at the lowest possible rates. We want people to enjoy themselves, but not at the detriment of the areas they visit.”
Hoke says it is especially important because some of the Las Vegas tours take place near wildlife, like wild mustangs, and other tours are made available with exclusive arrangements with not only the U.S. government, but also the Hualapai Indian Reservation. Las Vegas tour operators appreciate that they are guests, Hoke said.
Most Las Vegas tours offered through TourGuy.com include complimentary pick-up and drop-off from Strip hotels. All tours have strict limitations on the number of participants. For reservations and information, call toll free 1-888-801-1575 or visit TourGuy.com
TourGuy.com is the newest tour and travel reservation service with the lowest prices. It offers a variety of tours, ranging from one-and-a-half hours to two days. Group tour arrangements are also available.
