Highly recommend!
Apr 2021
My 2 friends and I took a day trip here from the strip and we enjoyed every minute of it! Great family that owns the property and their daughter who was our tour guide was blow your mind knowledgeable, funny, engaging, and did and excellent job of taking us around the property and through the mine. It is such a unique experience and a golden nugget of Nevada history waiting to be shared with all so I highly recommend that it should be seen and experienced at least once. Great items in the shop to bring back to remind you of your visit and the pictures that can be taken there are unique and right up my alley. Thank you for allowing us to tour your home!

Nice Stop
Jun 2019
Driving around Vegas we saw this place we thought
It was different and we decide to stop , they were going to start a tour to go to the mines and we were able to join them
We had such an amazing time , after we had time to walk around and take some pictures. They were really nice and we are looking forward to go back and taking family to visit . We were so glad we found it and we decide to stop it was our highlight

The Tour of the Eldorado Mine is a Fine Stop
We took the tour of the Eldorado Mine last week. It was a very interesting hour and a half. The tour includes the history of the mine and some of the murders that occurred in the area over a hundred years ago. Millions of dollars worth of gold has been taken out of the mine over the years.

Mine and H.Dam tour
Oct 2019
We thoroughly enjoyed the trip. The bus driver (Pam) happened to be from our home state (WI) so we hit it of right away. The tour of Hoover Dam was unexpected. It was one thing I have always wanted to see. If we don't get an opportunity to take the full Dam tour I will be satisfied with this. Also, the mine tour was interesting. The tour guide (Bruce) was a hoot. His humor has our group laughing at times. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone.

Great time
Oct 2019
The Eldorado Canyon and mine tour was extremely interesting and educational. Mostly thanks to the tour guide,Jimmy Vegas. He was a wealth of knowledge and kept the groups interest from the time of pick up at our hotel to the time of return. He grew up in the area and his father was manager of one of the hotels on the strip when the mob ran things. He had a lot of interesting stories from his father that made the trip even more fun. The actual mine tour was so interesting and informative. With stops at Hoover Dam,the Colorado river shoreline and the Tillman bridge,the trip will be unforgettable. I recommend it highly.

Best half day tour we have taken whenever we have visited LV
When you read reviews you can form both a positive and negative mindset. We tend to go more with the positive sides. Punctual pick up at our hotel, informed the day before by e-mail, very comfortable bus,knowledgeable driver who gave a running commentary along the way. A first look for us at Boulder City and Lake Mead. Stop off at the Hoover Dam lower portion and from the new bridge level, spectacular.

The road out to the Techatticup Mine was just a build up to the sights we found at the mine. Our mine guide Bruce, was not only very interesting and knowledgeable about the history associated with this SilverMine his quips while explaining things inside the mine brought out the comedian in him. So much to see, the collection of pieces gathered over forty years are remarkable.

Bruce also explained how they manage being so remote, film making, ad agencies weddings all provided with a remarkable backdrop.

This is not a tour to be seen as a fill in during your visit to LV, far from it go learn about this Tory of the great Silver Rush back-in the 1800’s, see those hand made backbreaking tunnels, all in search of the elusive Silver veins. Thank you Bruce, from the English couple.

Our favourite tour in Las Vegas!
Sep 2019
I debated about booking this tour and finally done it, and I'm so glad that I did - it turned out to be my favourite excursion of our whole holiday.

Hassle free pick up and drop off, and what a wonderful driver/guide we had - he gave us a brilliant tour with so much information. The tour description states a brief stop at Hoover Dam, but our guide stopped at multiple points and even offered to take photos of us at all the best view points. He delivered so much more than I expected, and we saw so much of Hoover Dam that I didn't feel the need to go back again on a different tour.

The Techatticup mine tour and host were also excellent, the gold mine itself was absolutely fascinating. And the grounds, with all the machine parts and vehicles, is so quirky and interesting too.

There were plentiful bottles of water and snacks on the bus, and the bus itself was very comfortable and modern. I honestly can't fault this tour, we were made to feel so welcome by everyone and it was overall such a great experience. If you are debating about booking it, do it!!

A unique and entertaining tour
My family came here in July and took a mine tour. Once you check in at the main building there are so many fun places to explore and things to look at while waiting for your tour to start. We had so much fun! The tour was not rushed and you could tell the guide loved his job. He was entertaining and comical. It is good for all ages and it is not hard on the feet or legs. We also enjoyed going down to the Colorado River to play in the crystal clear water. We wanted to rent a kayak but our car was not equipped to carry one down to the water. I would definitely do this again!!
