Our guide, Mac provided us with a superb tour! We were picked up at our hotel right on time, then delivered to the shop where we were briefed and fitted for gloves and helmets. At the trail head we were fully fitted for the bikes and given an overview of what to expect on the tour. Mac carried a (large) backpack with water, first aid gear, parts and snacks. He maintained a running commentary on points of interest and was obviously well versed on not only the history of the area we were traversing but on plants and animals we encountered as well. I cannot recall a single question that Mac wasn't able to answer to our satisfaction. My wife and I would both rate this tour as being thoroughly excellent. The equipment was great, the scenery was beautiful and the ride was never beyond our capabilities. This was a totally new experience for both of us as neither of us had previously been in the desert nor had we ever visited Hoover Dam. The Dam tour was sort of separate as Mac didn't accompany us with the Dam having it's own guides. The picnic lunch was very good. We thoroughly enjoyed this tour but honestly, having Mac as our guide was the high point of the trip. Kind, intelligent, warm and well informed, his skill and enthusiasm were what pulled everything together. Well done to all involved! Thank you, Mac!
This was a superb trip (except for one bit) it was just our family, three of us and Daniel our guide. Right from the start with being contacted on when we were to be picked up and what food we would like right to the end it was so well organised.
It was an early start but as it got so hot in the afternoon I can understand that. We rode from Boulder through the storm drains, cycle paths and the construction tunnels. all the way Daniel pointed out things of interest and explained the area.
He kept a real good eye on us and if one of us dropped back he would drop back as well and check we were ok. He also carried the cold water which was really needed.
The one down point was that with 200 yards to go I came of (embarasing as Im the moutaIn biker) completly my fault I cut my arm a little but Daniel was superb had all the medical equipment and was so professional.
all in all this was brilliant and really can not stress how well organised and freindly Awesome adventures are.
If we go again to Vegas I would do this again and recomend it.
Antonio was a great tour lead and gave detailed facts about the area, wildlife and location. The ride itself was all downhill so very easy, although some grit areas required a little more effort to maintain speed. The tunnels provided some respite against the sun but plenty of stops were offered as required for breaks and photos. The scenery was beautiful and we were given ample time to take the tour at the hoover dams standard charge and then had time as required to walk the actual dam itself. We were even taken up to the bridge to see the higher views which were impressive. Antonio took particular care and attention around safety, bike comfort, carrying a massive bag of water in addition to our individually provided canisters and a huge bag of healthy snack bars. He also took care to match the rides pace with what we were comfortable with. If we had time, I would have liked to book up for their kayaking having had such a great day out mountain biking.
