We had a thoroughly enjoyable day exploring the ghost towns and Mike our guide was extremely knowledgeable and kept us amused and interested with his stories and detailed history of Chloride,Oatman and Nelson Arizona. We would highly recommend this tour and if you are lucky enough to get Mike as your guide you will be in for a very entertaining day.

There were only 4 of us on this trip so we had the personal services of guide Joel who had the most amazing knowledge about the desert and the history of the area. If the bus had been full it would have been a bit of an uncomfortable journey though. It was a fantastic day - the only criticism would be that the lunch was disappointing - wet rolls, crisps and a del monte fruit pot!

A long day of travelling but made very enjoyable by our driver/tour guide Khriss. He is extremely knowledgable and told us some great historical facts as well as some fun stories. Our first stop was at Chloride. With a population of only just over 300, this was a quiet place. Make sure you visit with 'Diggger Dave' he is quite a character. Next we went to Oatman, on Route 66, this town only has the one street but is very lively by comparison. We arrived in the middle of a gunfight which was fun to watch. There are lots of burros donkeys walking about and they even wandered through the gunfight. Our last stop was at El Dorado. There are lots rusty of old cars, trucks and even a school bus lying around and a visit to the 'museum' is a must. There is a strange collection of items including mounted animal heads around the walls and an even weirder collection in the 'Area 52' room. A great day out and even though the travelling between towns takes a long time, if you get Khriss as your guide you are in for a treat. Thanks Khriss!

Amazing and very interesting tour. Our tour guide Khriss did a great job! Gave us a lot of information about this tour. From Hoover Dam up to Chloride, Oatman and El Dorado. Best part of it was the St Patrick's day parade in Chloride.

What a great day we had. There were only 4 of us on this trip, so we had almost one on one attention from Michael our driver and guide. First stop Chloride and a meeting with 'Digger Dave'. This has to be one of the most bizarre and fascinating places I have ever visited. Not for what this town offers just how the people live and function on a day by day basis.

Next stop Oatman. Another great experience and given it was on Route 66 just added to the fascination of this town. Seeing Donkeys Burro's simply wandering around this one street town was an experience on its own. Oatman calls itself the 'town which refuses to die' - and I certainly hope they are right because I would love to visit it again.

Last stop El Dorado. Now this really is a ghost town, albeit during the time of our visit, a photographic shoot complete with scantilly clad ladies descended on the town. Very enjoyable !!

Michael our bus driver and guide was superb and would thoroughly recommend this tour. Excellent value for money.

A well paced day trip, starting with a half hour stop to view The Hoover Dam and continuing on to three very different cowboy ghost towns - Chloride in the old silver mining region, Oatman, a real feel of the old West, and Eldorado, tiny but compelling. The guide, Chris, was extremely informative with a relaxed sense of humour, always approachable and tolerant of numerous requests for photo stops.

This was by far the best trip we have had so far. The mini bus was very comfy and pick up was on tine. The guide Kriss was outstanding and kept us entertained the whole day with his stories. The scenery is outstanding and the ghost towns gave us plenty to think about. If you only have time for 1 trip, then this is it.

Brilliant trip, Great driver and guide, we had a great day. Would do this trip again if we were in Las Vegas. Would recommend to anyone going to Las Vegas. Can't believe we have gone to Vegas for ten years and never found this trip. Done every other but this was so different and good loved it.

We had a blast! Khriss our tour guide was amazing. He was very knowledgable of everything we did and even drove by. A 10 hour tour went by quickly. The towns were great. The desert landscape was a new picture with every turn. I kept Khriss' card and will definitely use your company again and recommend it to everyone. Only under the condition we can have Khriss as our tour guide again.

This was a great tour! We were the only people booked on so we got our own personal tour for the day. Our tour guide Mike was very knowledgeable and funny, he even helped us plan our drive to LA later in the week. The towns we visited were all pretty varied and interesting in different ways.

This is an excellent tour! A real insight in to real America for us Brits staying in Las Vegas! A wander around the abandoned buildings of Chloride, the old Jail, the gas station and the friendly folk at the bar was great. Then on to Oatman via Route 66 for a gun fight in the street was good fun. We posed with guns at Jimmy Hornfeathers store.
Then on to the spooky town of El Dorado for the ghastly sights in the guest room! Move over Norman Bates. Youll have to take the tour to know what im on about!
But best of all was our tour guide Mick,nothing was too much trouble, he was knowlegeable and friendly he made sure we took all the dam pictures we wanted. (Hoover Dam) We hope hes having fun with his genuine Star Wars Stormtrooper helmet!

An excellent day out with a really friendly and informative guide. Something of interest for everyone even if one the ghost towns was full of tourists - the lunch-seeking burros made it fun in spite of the seething masses! Well recommended.

My husband and I absolutely loved everything about Las Vegas, our 8 nights wasn't enough, but this day was by far the best. We wanted to do something more historic than just shop and enjoy the casinos, and this was the most perfect way to experience and enjoy local history and culture. Kerry our tour guide was amazing. She was so knowledgeable and easy to listen to, she was fantastic. Her stories about the Indians, and the real Wild West were fascinating and entertaining, as was the information on the local flora, fauna, and changing desert landscapes.
Walking across Hoover Dam, the first stop was eerie but fascinating, what a feat of engineering! Kerry was a fountain of knowledge about the construction of it, and to experience it first hand was great.
The ghost town of Chloride was very unique with its competitive neighbours and their very creative 'yard art', was more like junk to me, however that's what makes this town, and I'm sure the competitive spirit keeps the home fires burning.
Travelling along the original Route 66 was fantastic, so much so, my husband and I would like to go back and travel along it from start to finish.
The ghost town of Oatman was the highlight of the day, with very healthy wild burros that roaming freely and creating road blocks in this one road town. The burros were amazing, even the foals were super friendly and gorgeous, escaping the heat in the doorways of the shops and under the verandahs. I could have stayed for hours patting them. The gunfight was great, it looked so authentic in the street with the rugged mountains in the background.
Finally, the trip to El Dorado canyon on the way home again was fantastic, what a place! For any die hard 'Killers' fans like myself, there is the perfect photo opportunity in front of the caravan used on the 'Sam's Town' album cover, I took many! If you are considering this trip do not be put of by it's length, the day flew, it was worth every cent, and Kerry, thank you again.

Kris, our Driver/Guide was an excellent fit for this tour. Seemed to be nothing he didn't know and he was a fountain of information. Saw two gunfights, the first of which was more than a little unusual. We also did the Death Valley tour with him the next day which meant we really hit the jackpot. Would I do either of these tours again. You bet.
