This tour will be added to the list of my favorite Vegas tours I've done away from the Strip. Alicia was funny and very knowledgeable. The side by side Razors were brand new, which was an unexpected bonus. I recommend this tour and would actually do it again!

Our tour guide Alisha is the absolute BEST!! She made the entire experience worth while from the hotel pickup to the actual tour and then back to the drop off. ATVing is fun and learning the history of the gold mine was awesome! I would do it again if Alisha would be my tour guide again.

This was exhilarating for my family of 4 adults. You will get very dirty. You also need some physical endurance and hand strength to operate the ATVs. The tour guides Alisha and Sherman were a lot of fun. The turkey sandwich from Capriotti's sandwich shop needs improvement. I have never had a deli sandwich where the "meat" is chopped up bits of dark and white turkey meat. Odd and not appetizing.
