Me and my wife visited the El Dorado Mine in March. We called ahead and put our name on the last tour of the day which was at 2:30 p.m. I would recommend you call them ahead of time and put your names in since the mine tours are only at specific times of the day.
How to Get Here: your GPS may not work so take 95 South of the 515/93 interchange and drive 10 miles. There is just one small sign pointing to the 165. Take the 165 and just drive, Keep driving for 13 miles on the 165 and you will see the Mine. The mine is about 25 minutes from Boulder City and about 50 minutes from The Las Vegas Strip.
There is a fee to tour the mine. The owners of the mine are wonderful and have a warm and friendly personality. The mine has a ton of history to it and yes its in the middle of nowhere. Willy was our tour guide (I hope i got the name right), he was great and quite informative of the history of the mine and everything in and around it. He answered all our questions as we toured the different areas of the mine. Really enjoyed the experience. Its a great learning experience for kids as well. If you're in Vegas and want to get away for some peace and quiet from all that neon, head over to El Dorado Mine. You'll have a great time.
