When we visit Las Vegas, we're looking for things to do outside of the strip. So Awesome Adventures seemed like a good choice with a variety of different adventures to choose from.

Due to some very unexpected circumstances we scheduled our adventure, then had to cancel the adventure when our entire vacation was canceled, then rescheduled (when we were able to accomodate a new,shorter vactaion) and then change dates (because of a conflict)! But Nikki and Julie were fantastic everytime we called to change the schedule! They were patient and friendly in helping us each time trying to work through OUR problems - so that made a great first impression and left us assured that we'd be in good hands.

Since we had our own transportation, we drove out to the Eldorado ATV site ourselves. Buckshot greeted us as soon as we drove up and quickly pointed us through the paperwork, restrooms, etc. Richard our main guide was terrific. He clearly wanted everyone to have a safe and fun time and took his time to ensure that. I unfortunately can't remember the 3rd guide's name, but it was clear that all 3 of the guys were working well together to ensure that the group got through the ATV portion of the ride.

Would recommend Awesome Adventures to any friends visiting the Las Vegas area and would definitely consider one of the other Awesome Adventures if we are in Las Vegas again ourselves. We'd likely try the Desert ATV and/or Valley of Fire Rappel adventure.

Site looked little rough when we first drove in, however it got better. We had a great tour guide by the name of Kevin, he made our drive out to the site and back very enjoyable. Told us a lot about the area and also made our ATV tour excitin.. THANKS KEVIN

Included this in a 4-day convention trip to Vegas....so glad we did. Brandon was awesome as a guide and has a great knowledge of the area and its history. We added a BBQ after our 2-hour ride and it was fantastic. It was also greatly appreciated to have a back-up guide who escorted two of our more cautious riders on a private tour; everyone had a blast!! The drive through the Valley of Fire was a great bonus....it was an Awesome Adventure!!

Called for reservations to go on an ATV tour the next day. Van picked us up at the hotel door on time, tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly without being creepy-familiar. Equipment was in good condition, box lunch was ok, returned to hotel on time as promised. Definitely recommend to newbies.

First let me say the tour guide was a blast. He had a great sense of humor and seemed to really love his job. The van on the way to the site rattled a lot (loose peice) so it was hard to hear all of the great tour information that Buckshot had to share. The adventure was great- we had a blast riding the rugged trails in the mountains (I was a first time rider) and touring the mine. The ATV part was a tad scary when you are just starting out; but you get the knack quick. Some poor fellow hurt himself (shows you a split second decision not to watch infront of you is dangerous out there on ATV's) and the trips wan't fun for him- but follow directions and you have a life long vacation memory. Reservations were easy, reminder call for pickup time was received, pick up and drop off at hotel was simple.
