Guide training doesn’t stop there. Most Pink Jeep Tour guides are Certified Interpretive Guides (CIG), a credential offered by the National Association for Interpretation (NAI) after successful completion of an intensive 32-hour course. Through the prestigious CIG certification process our guides deepen and refine their commitment as stewards of the land and great storytellers!
We are also pleased to announce that Pink Jeep Tour guides are required to participate in a well-respected international driver safety program called the Smith System® Driver Training. Used by such well-known fleets as FedEx and UPS, the Smith System is offered in 100 countries and 21 languages.
Through stories and interpretation, your guide will bring to life the unforgettable wilderness areas and man-made wonders surrounding Las Vegas and beyond. Get ready to learn about local history, geology, plants and animals – while having a great time!
Pink Jeep Tours Las Vegas is committed to investing in the continuing education of our tour guides. We want you to have an unforgettable tour. If what you experience on one of our exciting tours inspires you with a renewed appreciation for natural beauty like the Grand Canyon West Rim or man-made marvels like the Hoover Dam, then we have done our job!
Let’s not forget that our guides are fun! They love sharing what they know and can’t wait to meet you. Please ask lots of questions! Our guides have a passion for nature and an unending curiosity for life… and it shows. Here are some of our guide reviews.
In the short time you’ll spend together on tour, you and your guide may just become fast friends!
Meet a few of the Las Vegas Tour Guides
How many years at Pink Jeep? 1 year
How would you describe your job? I have a great job. I get to take my guests out on adventures to places like Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, Death Valley National Park, Grand Canyon South Rim National Park, Zion National Park and Valley of Fire, as well as the amazing Hoover Dam.
What do you like most about your job? I love meeting people from around the world and introducing them to the desert and all its wonders. We are known around the world as one of the best ways to visit the Southwestern part of America.
Tell us a memorable experience while on tour: One of the most memorable times I have had with my guests was the time we were at Red Rock Canyon and we encountered a Desert Big Horn sheep up in the wilderness area. My guests got to take pictures that they will treasure for a lifetime.
What is your Pink Jeep story? My story is pretty simple. Friends that have known me for years will tell you that each time I saw one of Pink Jeep Tours’ famous pink vehicles pass us up in the Red Rock Canyon area, I would always say, “That’s what I want to do”. The opportunity to get up in the morning and take guests to these great destinations gives me great pleasure.
What is your favorite Pink Jeep tour? If you haven’t guessed by now, my favorite tour is Red Rock Canyon. It is 800,000 acres of amazing sculpted red sandstone, ancient limestone, beautiful desert plants and wild canyons etched into the Wilson Cliffs. We tour the park then ascend a four wheel drive road up to about 7,000 ft (about 2,300 meters) to visit a wilderness area. When we come down I stop at a place that has ancient Native American pictographs and Agave Roasting pits. It is a great place to get away from and contrast your Las Vegas experience.
How many years at Pink Jeep? 3 years.
How would you describe your job? Being a tour guide involves wearing many hats. You are an ambassador for not only Pink Jeep Tours but for Las Vegas and the great state of Nevada. You need to be educated, entertaining, organized and a very positive person.
How does this job differ from previous work you’ve done? This is not a time-clock type of job. No two days are ever the same. The guests that are with you that day, the weather, the wildlife you may see that day all create a very different and memorable experience.
What do you like most about your job? I love being a very real part of a person’s vacation in Las Vegas. It’s wonderful to think that a few years later after taking their Pink Jeep tour, a guest may remember some fact I shared on tour or view a photo that we photographed together.
Tell us a memorable experience while on tour. I once had a retired geology professor from the U.K. that I took to Death Valley. She had retired early after being diagnosed with a brain aneurysm. She had only looked at pictures in textbooks for 20 years of Death Valley. Each viewpoint that we stopped at she cried. She never thought that she would see these places that she had studied and had taught her students about. It was very moving.
