This was a fun excursion. Hosts were friendly and informative. The goldmine tour was interesting, and riding the ATVs was fun. A bit tiring, but well worth it. Would go again.

My son and I really enjoyed our trip. Our tour guide Sherman was knowledgeable and very funny. All around great guy!!! The temperature in July was about 110 degrees but really it was not unbearable by any means when you are on the ATVs. Just make sure to have some sun screen. We saw quite a bit of wildlife, with very beautiful views. In between, we were given a sub sandwich with chips, and water. It hit the spot. Then off to the Gold mine. The Gold mine is a very easy walk ( I had double knee replacement 16 months prior). It was about 60 degrees with a nice breeze. Very refreshing. This trip was defiantly one of the best things we did while we were here in Las Vegas. Well worth the money!!!! Make sure to tip your guides. Thank you for the good time, Marty from Milwaukee

Sherman and Chris was great. Two activities made it worth the money in a moderate ATV ride and Mine tour in an interesting old western looking town. Antique shopping was available for those interested. Sherman wore many hats transforming from tour guide to medic and responded quickly to an overturn vehicle with medical supplies then rejoin tour and became loss and find agent to recover a loss phone in the desert. He was awesome and so was his partner Chris keeping up with my family. Lunch was a great added touch. Desert was hot and dusty so prepare for a long ride with a few stops for photo ops or as needed for the group. All 10 members of my family enjoyed it and said it made their trip exciting..

Talked about this trip for days. First time on an ATV.... Easy to learn and not pressured into a fast pace....scenery around the mining camp and desert was spectacular... guides very knowledgeable and accommodating. Gold mine tour was very interesting and welcome as the June temps were reduced to 60 degrees inside the mine.

Had a wonderful time, Sherman was fantastic and a true history buff. It was my wife’s first time on an ATV and she loved it and still talking about it. We will definitely do this again!!
