You need to book this trip! Sherman was our tour guide and really made the trip. We had 8 people in our group and 7 out of the 8 of us never had been on a quad. They had a ball! The gold mine was icing on the cake, from the mine tour to talking with the owner, you really need to take this tour.
Fun and informative time on the atv's and walking thru the mines. Total enjoyment of time from pick-up to drop off ! Sherman was awesome in his knowledge of everything .. Hope to see ya on the next visit soon . David and Miss. Mona
This was my first time on the atv and let me say it was a little intimidating. I had to stay back from a steep hill or two but overall was amazing driving through the desert and going in the mine was interesting. Lunch was simple and perfect. All in all was a great time and I would recommend.
Our guide Sherman picked us up at our hotel early and whisked us out to our starting point. All of the employees and owners of the store were great and made our experience fantastic. I would highly recommend this trip for anyone! Take a quad, it is way more fun than the UTV!
Tour was awesome! Enjoyed every moment. Ed, my tour guide, was very kind as I am not the most skilled ATV rider. He was also quite knowledgeable about the area and answered all of my questions thoroughly. Having had a long flight the day before, I appreciated that it was only a short ride from the Strip. Morning pick up was quite punctual. Worth the money.
