We had a Girls Camp at Big Rock Candy Mountain at the end of June and I can't say enough about how well we were taken care of by the staff of Awesome Adventures. They truly wanted us to have a great time and even made sure we had fire wood for our campfires. They were easy to work with and very helpful. Thank you for making our adventure awesome!

I have never been ATV riding before and I have to say it was a great experience. Landon was our tour guide and was absolutely amazing. He was very knowledgeable and funny. I did not regret being in 100+ degree weather because it was such a great time!!! I would def highly recommend this tour to anyone who is looking to get out of Las Vegas and enjoy how beautiful Nevada is.

We wanted to get out of the city and do something different for our anniversary . We did the ATV excursion and didn't regret it a bit! From the reservation agents to the tour guide, everything was excellent! Kevin was our guide from the time he picked us up promptly at the hotel to riding the ATV trails and giving us all the historical facts of the mines at El Dorado Canyon. Very fun! My husband won't stop bragging to his friends!

We booked this tour based on feedback from Trip Advisor and checking out the business on Facebook and oh boy - we were not disappointed! We did the helicopter tour with papillon departing from Boulder Airport first with amazing views over an hour of the Grand Canyon. We we're then dropped off by chopper at Eldorado Canyon and met by Zack who transported us by ATV buggy to meet the rest of the ATV crew for our 2 hour bike tour!
We didn't realized upon booking that an old mine tour of the Teachztticup Gold Mine and lunch would be included so that was a bonus! It was absolutely incredible to go underground through old hand chiseled tunnels! (plus an added extra bonus as it was soo cool underground, so to get out of the heat for a bit was great!. Zack and Kevin who hosted the tour we're extremely knowledgable and interesting to listen too and overall the 6 hour tour in total was amazing! Would highly recommend this if your into doing something off the strip and out of the ordinary!

As its the desert - its quite dusty so be prepared to get a little dirty and hot but by far one of the BEST toursive ever done!

My new husband and I were visiting Vegas on the first leg of our honeymoon, and wanted to try something a little different from the Strip during our time there.
We booked a tour of the Grand Canyon by helicopter (Papillon), followed by a day's exploration of the Nevada desert on horseback, and Techatticup gold mine tour, run by Awesome Adventures.
The helicopter ride was amazing, despite the scaring-exciting bumpiness, and we had a wonderful running (flying??) commentary from Weston, our pilot.
We were met at the landing site by Scottie, the maddest American I have ever had the pleasure to meet, with a fantastic sense of humour and cheerfulness to boot! He made sure we were safely transported to our trail-guide, the patient and knowledgable Billy, before roaring off to lead the ATV trail-riders himself.
As an avid horserider, I was very impressed by the quality of our trail ride though the Nevada desert; Billy was an excellent host, horseman and tour guide. The horses were well trained, well turned out, and such a pleasure to ride that even my non-equine hubby enjoyed himself!
After lunch with the ATV riders and a return ride to base, Scottie took us on a magnificent tour of the Techatticup gold mine and answered all our questions with a flair that would have done any circus ringmaster justice!
We were then taken back to our hotel, having made friends with our fellow trail riders and with Scottie as well.
Would highly recommend this to anyone who harbours a secret Clint Eastwood streak, wants to get back to nature, Nevada-style, and enjoys the great outdoors.
Thanks Scottie and Billy, for an unforgettable day.
