Know More about this tour

On this exciting day trip from Las vegas you'll ride your ATV or UTV into extreme mountain terrain, surrounded by cactus forest and with towering, multicolored rock formations as a backdrop. Riding under the big open sky is an awesome experience, flanked by the Colorado River and mountain ranges leading to the Grand canyon!

On your tour you'll be driving a fully automatic, easy-to-handle off-road vehicle that's an absolute blast to ride. After a safety and operations orientation, beginners and experienced riders alike will be ready to hit the trail with a professional guide.

You'll also take a stroll into the pages of history with a walking tour of the Techatticcup mine. Venturing deep into this gold mine, which is rumored to be haunted, you'll visit three deep shafts and learn how the miners labored feverishly on their quest for gold.

Your meal stop in the Old West Town will also take you back in time, at the foundations of one of the original 19th-century mining camps. Enjoy a picnic lunch under the covered pavilion while you hear the sound of the natural spring which attracts big horn sheep and a variety of desert wildlife. Look closely and you might see creatures that otherwise blend into the natural landscape of the desert.

    My son and I really enjoyed our trip.

    Our tour guide Sherman was knowledgeable and very funny. All around great guy!!!

    The temperature in July was about 110 degrees but really it was not unbearable by any means when you are on the ATVs. Just make sure to have some sun screen.
    We saw quite a bit of wildlife, with very beautiful views.

    In between, we were given a sub sandwich with chips, and water. It hit the spot. Then off to the Gold mine.

    The Gold mine is a very easy walk ( I had double knee replacement 16 months prior). It was about 60 degrees with a nice breeze. Very refreshing.

    This trip was defiantly one of the best things we did while we were here in Las Vegas.

    Well worth the money!!!! Make sure to tip your guides.

    Thank you for the good time,
    Marty from Milwaukee

    Sherman and Chris was great. Two activities made it worth the money in a moderate ATV ride and Mine tour in an interesting old western looking town. Antique shopping was available for those interested. Sherman wore many hats transforming from tour guide to medic and responded quickly to an overturn vehicle with medical supplies then rejoin tour and became loss and find agent to recover a loss phone in the desert. He was awesome and so was his partner Chris keeping up with my family. Lunch was a great added touch. Desert was hot and dusty so prepare for a long ride with a few stops for photo ops or as needed for the group. All 10 members of my family enjoyed it and said it made their trip exciting..

    Talked about this trip for days. First time on an ATV.... Easy to learn and not pressured into a fast pace....scenery around the mining camp and desert was spectacular... guides very knowledgeable and accommodating. Gold mine tour was very interesting and welcome as the June temps were reduced to 60 degrees inside the mine.

    This waa mine and my husbands 15 year wedding Anniversary and I surprised him with a trip to Vegas. The trip was amazing. Our guide Sherman was awesome except he was a little slow at downloading our pics. He was very knowledgeable and nice. Definitely was worth the money. Would most definitely recommend.

    Everything was great from the pick up to the end! Our guides were laid back and fun. The ride was so much fun. The little town is an antique lovers dream and the gold mine tour is the best I have ever been on.

    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.

    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!
