This was a birthday present from my wife and what a great one it was! We got to ride our ATVS for hours and enjoyed lunch in what feels like an old west ghost town! There were some great antiques around the property and plenty of photo opportunities! Our guide Chad was the best guide I’ve had on a tour; providing loads of history lessons throughout the day & tailoring the tour to our groups needs/wants! Remember to bring cash for the gift shop and to tip your guide as this trip was definitely worth every penny spent!

This was a great day in the desert! After being picked up from our hotel, we drove approximately 30 minutes to get to our ATV’s near Techatticcup mine. Once there we had some time to look around at all the old stuff & peruse the gift shop. I had no idea 3000 Miles to Graceland was filmed there! We then rode our ATV’s a little over 2 hours on rough terrain. Our guide Chad was great at giving us breaks when riding and giving us a lot of history lessons! After lunch, we took the gold mine tour where again our guide Chad gave us a plethora of information! Highly recommend this tour to anyone who likes history, the old west, and who likes to go fast!

It was Great. Our tour guide Chad picked us up from our hotel and took us to where the base was. We got on the ATV and #39;s shortly after, they were easy to ride full auto. We road for approx 2 hours on rough terrain which was fun. The walking tour of the mine was good to see very informative. Recommended!
