Las Vegas, Nevada
Well organised, but felt too rushed, think time wasted going to Chocolate factory and not enough time at the Hoover Dam. Our guide Tony was fantastic and full of knowledge. Cruise on Lake Mead Paddle boat was good and food was nice. Views of Hoover Dam from lake were 'awesome'
Las Vegas, Nevada
I have never, ever felt compelled to write a review before, but this fantastic place has found a place into my heart and soul and I just wanted to share it.
Our trip was booked via Viator and we flew into the ranch via a spectacular flight by the very efficient and client friendly Vision Airways.
Pick up from MGM Grand was on time at 5,15 am, a comfy ride to Vision Air , and a smooth flight over fantastic views of the Grand Canyon landing on a very small, dusty landing strip - all part of the 'real' experience of the ranch stay.
Driving under the Bar 10 ranch arch felt like 'magic' and a charming young buck named Curly met us and looked after us
After an orientation, where safety and an idea of what the day was going to hold, we headed out on the ATV but the seats were very spongy and cushined the bumps perfectly!
The view that met us at the North Rim of the Canyon was ' Awesome' a word we British are now using, since our ranch stay.No fences or boundaries and most of all no people, no hoards of tourists clammering for the perfect photo, we had complete and utter solitude, to sit in this idylic setting with only our thoughts.
What we saw with our eyes just cannot be reflected in the photos, they just don't do this vista any justice.
Next was a horse ride across the desert on very well behaved steeds. The horses were steady footed on extremely uneveuneven terrain.
Some cowboy stories followed, then 'skeet' shooting, which was great funTime for a short break and back to our covered wagon, for a quick change after a lovely powerful hot shower in the very clean shower block - then to a tasy evening meal of the ranch home produced beef, eaten on the patio with a view of the Canyon and the sun setting - perfection
We cannot express how 'very special' this place is and would 100% reccomend it and can't thank Ben and his team enough. Thank you so much you all made this a 'Once in a Lifetime Experience' and this should be on everyone's 'Bucket List'!
