Great day trip away from the strip!

"Just went on this tour this week and we had an excellent time. It was 3 of us. Mom, dad and 11 year old son. Everything is included in the price. ATV's worked great. Sherman was our guide and he was great!! He picked us up in morning and led the ATV tour. Dillion got some great pics of us and led the mine tour. Excellent guys who made an awesome trip for us. Very convenient transportation back and forth!"

Worth every penny!

"This was worth every penny! The tour guides did an awesome job. They were very knowledgeable about the trails and the history of the gold mine. During the ATV portion, we stop multiple times to explore the area and take pictures. The sub sandwiches were delicious, good size to hold us over until we got back to our hotel. Definitely would recommend doing Awesome Adventures."

Lots of riding, great views!

My son and I had a great time! It was actually 114 degrees when we went but it didn't really feel like it. Sherman was a great guide and provided lots of water along with a meal. We did lots of riding to several areas, beautiful scenery and Sherman had plenty of stories to tell about the area, especially the Gold Mine. We took our own helmets because we had communication systems on them so I could talk to my son during the riding. That made it twice as fun. Although you don't need your own helmet it was just our choice. Even though it was 114 out we still wore long pants and long sleeve shirts but you could probably get away with wearing shorts as long as you are careful on the atv's but there's a good chance of getting burnt from the engine heat. If we go again we would probably do the RZR's, they were more capable then the atv's that were available but either ride is incredible. This isn't an extreme off-road adventure, the trails were mostly easy to navigate with a few exceptions. The main feature is the places we went and the views we got to see plus the history. That being said we did a lot of riding so it was a very well rounded adventure in the Desert! If you like riding, history and great views don't miss out on this 6-hour adventure!

– Martin S. I Tripadvisor
Fun time

Guide was very knowledgeable and courteous. Allisa I believe was her name. Was by far better than sunbuggy tour we participated in a few years ago. Very nice utv and equipment. Lunch was very good as well. Took about 6hrs total from drop off to pick up

– Kevin F. I Tripadvisor
So much fun

What a fun day! Will do this tour again when next in Vegas. Once you get out of the city, the starting point at El Dora's Canyon is very convenient and interesting. The mine tour afterwards was also very interesting and Selmar was a great guide. For lunch we had sub sandwiches, chips (crisps), a choc chip cookie and a bottle of water from Capriottis in town. It was good. The driving in the canyon is the highlight though! The vehicles and safety equipment is all parked and kept at El Dorado so th set up is very good- much better organized than other RZR tours we have done from Las Vegas and the price was more reasonable than others too! Recommendation: unless you are an experienced ATV rider, or you have good upper body strength do NOT go for the ATV option. Go for the RZR. For less than $15pp the RZR is better. It drives and rides more like a car and its much easier for older or less confident drivers. Two people can share the driving

Worth the $$$

The entire experience was worth it! Our tour guide, Alicia, was awesome! Her knowledge and understanding of the inside "cool" cave was top notch and not expected at all! Definitely worth every penny in an interesting vintage setting! You should book if just to keep you from spending more $$$ in the city! :)

The Best Off-Road, Desert, and Gold Mine Tours In Las Vegas

All-Inclusive Desert Tours

We have several Awesome Adventures tours to choose from (they all include transportation). If you just want to zip through the canyon, our RZR Off-Road Adventure is the way to go. If the thrill and rush of cruising the desert terrain are not for you, join us for the World Famous Sightseeing Adventure Tour featuring the Techatticup Gold Mine. But for the ultimate half-day, all-inclusive adventure, join us on either the 6-7 hour All-Inclusive ATV and Gold Mine Tour or the 6-7 hour All-Inclusive RZR and Gold Mine Tour.

Our All-Inclusive tours begin with the off-road adventure in the vehicle of your choice. Next up is lunch, served by the Las Vegas favorite Food Truck/Outdoor Restaurant, BLVD EATS. Then your next Adventure will take you on a rich historical journey of the world-famous Techatticup Gold Mine Tour.

RZR Tours 

The Polaris RZR is one of the coolest and most famous off-road vehicles on the market. When you think of a dune buggy, the Polaris RZR is likely what first comes to mind. Their extreme off-road capabilities are what make RZRs the ultimate choice for your Eldorado Canyon tour! As a 2-seater side-by-side, you get to ride and experience the desert terrain right alongside your friends and family. That includes kids! Children ages 7 and up get to share the fun of the desert road while parents or guardians sit behind the wheel. Nothing compares to the all-terrain experience you get with a RAZOR. Just watch out… after experiencing the thrill of one of these dune buggies, you’re going to want to buy your own!

ATV Tours

ATVs (all-terrain vehicles – also known as 4 wheelers, four wheelers, 4×4, and quad bikes) are the classic way to explore the mountainous terrain of the Eldorado Canyon desert. And they are SO much fun. ATVs are ideal for the group where everyone wants the thrill of sitting behind the wheel. And with the age limit of 16 and up (must have a valid driver’s license and must be with a parent or guardian), they’re perfect for the family with older teens. ATV tours are also an awesome activity when you need some downtime from the strip – perfect for bachelor or bachelorette parties, custom tours, and company or team excursions.

Off-Road Tours

Off-road tours take you through breathtaking mountainous terrain where all sorts of wildlife may be seen, offering great opportunities for photos. Our guides will also take photos of you and your party before, during, and after your off-road adventure. You’ll get to see photos and videos of you cruising the desert!

On our off-road tours, we’ll equip you with all the safety gear you need for a fun and safe adventure, including a helmet, helmet sock, goggles, and gloves. We also provide sunscreen and plenty of water. Absolutely no off-road experience is necessary, a valid driver’s license is all that’s required. Our tour guides will go over safety instructions on how to use the equipment and how to have the most fun in the sun and sand!

Gold Mine Tours

Ever wondered what it’s like to travel back in time? Now you can by visiting the World Famous Techatticup Gold Mine, established in 1861. One of the richest Gold Mines in Southern Nevada, the Techatticup Gold Mine is like a time portal to the old west where men tirelessly worked to amass their fortunes. On this desert tour, our guides will share amazing true stories and historical facts about the gold rush era. You’ll discover an extensive one-of-a-kind collection of historical artifacts from the early 1900s. With amazing antiques from the mining era to rare creations that can’t be found anywhere else, you’ll see first-hand why so many famous movies, music videos, and reality TV shows are filmed at this historic site. The entire gold mine tour is a photo opportunity experience that you won’t want to miss on your Las Vegas trip. And our guides will be sure to entertain you every step of the way!

Transportation Included

Whichever option you choose, our tours are perfect for a hassle-free day out in the desert. They begin and end with transportation from the strip. We’ll pick you up from a designated Las Vegas hotel and drive you about 45 – 55 minutes into the famous Eldorado Canyon. After your tour is over, we’ll deliver you back to the hotel with wonderful memories (and photos) of an Awesome Adventure that you experienced.
