Meet Your Guide
Adam Bautz, owner and lead guide of Outdoor Travel Tours, strives to bring the outdoor lifestyle to the forefront in Las Vegas. With years of experience guiding a wide array of adventure tours, Adam is thrilled to be leading a company of his own. Adam’s deep love for nature and guiding others comes from the healing that nature has brought to his own life. After serving four years as an infantry machine gunner in the United States Marine Corps, Adam came home to face many obstacles.
The transition from military life to civilian life was challenging and Adam eventually found nature and the great outdoors as a place for healing and reflection. It was through nature, being active, and his adventurous spirit where Adam found his true passion: guiding others to experience the power of nature. Adam takes great pride in each and every tour with a focus on making safety and customer service his main priority.
The love for adventure brought these two together. Adam & Nicole met and instantly planned to leave the country and explore. A one way ticket to New Zealand turned into a 7-month backpacking trip through 7 countries.
Upon returning back to the United States, these two planted their roots in Las Vegas. Nicole staying in the technology field, Adam jumped right back into hiking and exploring around Nevada creating his own routes and hiking adventures. Knowing there was so much more to this beautiful state, Adam wanted to bring people to experience what he called his “office”.
With the passion and enthusiasm to show that is so much more to Las Vegas than the strip, Outdoor Travel Tours was born.
