“Fantastic ATV ride and mine visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 April 2012

This 2-hour ATV ride is challenging enough to keep your adrenaline pumping, and includes stops at fascinating sites from El Dorado Canyon's mining history, including the site of the old Jubilee silver mine, once the largest in the U.S. them take the guided tour into the old Techatticup mine. Fascinating!

“Ride like the devil, laugh like a child and go home dirty!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 March 2012

We have twice adventured out with Awesome Adventures. If you want a historical and scenic ATV tour, go to Eldorado Canyon and enjoy exploring an old gold mine and cruising around the picturesque canyon. It’s a great day. But if you want to ride like the devil, laugh like a child and go home dirty, then take the Desert Adventure ATV/RZR tour. You’ll be picked up promptly at your hotel in a comfortable van and then you’ll head out on a pleasant drive into the desert. We recently did this tour with Kevin, a guide who certainly enjoys his job. Who wouldn’t love to drive like crazy through trails in the desert leading a pack of fellow fun seekers? Everyone was well prepared with good safety equipment and thorough pre-run instructions by Kevin. We went up hills and down hills, twisting and turning through wild corners with big smiles on our faces the whole time. We stopped at the “top of the world” for a rest and some cold water and then we were off again. After our ride, we were treated to a satisfying picnic lunch back at base camp where more water and washrooms awaited us. Then we piled back into the van and went on an excursion through the Valley of Fire State Park. What an amazingly beautiful place! Kevin filled us in on all the interesting information about the park as we travelled. We stopped at several key spots including some 3000 year old petroglyphs and the park’s visitors’ centre, just to name two. There were lots of pauses for great photo ops, as well. We highly recommend this tour to anyone who would like a day of awesome fun, followed by awesome beauty.

HarleyJourneys...WOW! What a great review, you pretty much totally nailed down the differences between the two ATV Tours and explained the highlights of each one! And of course we always like to hear about the great job our guides are doing, Kevin IS an 'Awesome' Guide for sure! thanks again for the great review, and for letting us take you on tour twice, hope we can see you again on one of our other adventures!
Thanks again,
Awesome Adventures

“The ATV Adventure tour is awesome!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 March 2012

We have done 4-wheeler tours in the past, but Awesome Adventures has RZR's which we had never tried. The guides who were very friendly and fun took us on a solid 2 1/2 hour ride. This is one of the most fun things we have ever done outside of Vegas. If you are looking for an offroading tour while in town, give these guys a try. I believe it is the best tour of it's kind for the money. Look online for discount coupons. If they pick you up, you will also get some time inside the Valley of Fire Park. If you self-drive, make sure to give yourself some time after your off-roading to drive through the park. It truly is beautiful.

Dan7667, so glad to hear that you enjoyed the Desert Adventure Tour and that you tried out the RZRs. The RZRS are great for those who prefer a different kind of off road vehicle, and they're great for couples where only one wants to drive too! The Valley of Fire State Park truly is a great place and we're happy you enjoyed it too. Hope to see you again next time you're visiting!
Thanks,
Awesome Adventures
