Full description
Discover the Wild West and ghost towns that dot the desert landscape. Choose from a shared or private day-trip departing from Las Vegas and uncover the mysteries of these ghost towns. Your guide picks you up and you head straight out into the desert. First, you'll stop at the Hoover Dam—that exquisite masterpiece of engineering. This enormous dam holds back the mighty Colorado River, and provides power for a huge portion of Las Vegas' bright lights, as well as residents in 4 states. We soon leave modernity behind, and head into the old mining town of Chloride, Arizona. Here you can see a still functioning "ghost town" that has been operating since the 1860s. The 250 residents who call these streets home are very proud of their history, and are happy to chat with you before you enjoy your deli style lunch. After filling your belly, we drive the iconic Route 66 to a small Ghost Town in Oatman, Arizona. There are 150 residents of this small outpost, and 1 poltergeist. Keep your eyes peeled! His name is "Oatie the Ghost" and is believed to be the spirit of William Ray Flour, an Irish miner. There's plenty of natural beauty around to enthrall you. The Black Mountains surround this town and make for some stunning photographs. Maybe catch a cowboy shootout at the local saloon! Before heading home we'll stop for a drink at the local saloon, and then head through the Mojave Desert via the old Gold Ruch town of El Dorado Canyon before returning to the glitz and glamor of Las Vegas.

educational AND fun

This tour was exactly what I needed: I wanted to take advantage of being in Vegas so that my son to get some education and visit the Hoover Dam, which he agreed to immediately when it came with the promise of a visit to a wild west ghost town afterwards. Everything went exactly as promised, Bill our guide was as friendly as he was knowledgeable and the other highlights, such as Route 66 and a mining town, were fun too. My son had such a great time, I dont think he even realized he was actually learning things too!

It was an interesting tour with a knowlegable and friendly guidel

All three towns were interesting in their own way. The guide knew the history and geography of the area and told it well.

Very courteous, competent, friendly guide, good organization of the trip. Only the packed lunch and the so highly advertised exciting show with cowboy shootout did not meet my expectations. The show, in which one amateur actor imitated the other to shoot (both apparently villagers from Oatman) did not last longer than a minute and was not very spectacular and looked rather amateurish. Otherwise I enjoyed the trip.
