Wow this was fun! My daughter and I participated in the Desert ATV Tour and Valley of the Fire State Park excursion. Gorgeous desert setting, beautiful sky, physical activity, great conversation with tour guides Landon and Ryan.......perfect afternoon.

Landon is an amazing tour guide and group leader. He is a life long resident of the area and shares interesting facts about the Clark County area, commerce, history, and environment throughout the tour. He is attentive to the participants and sets each driver up for success with safety instruction prior to the desert tour while encouraging a team mentality.

Ryan is an accomplished ATV driver and is ever present and watchful of the participants as they weave in and around, up and down the desert course. We felt great knowing Ryan was around "every corner" making certain we were safe and having a blast, He is a wonderful resource to the tour!

We had a FANTASTIC time! You will too.

Wife and I (64 yrs) did the Eldorado Canyon and Gold Mine tour on ATVs. We drove ourselves to the site, which was interesting by itself - like a ghost town with a huge collection of vintage artifacts. "Red" was our guide and he was excellent. He kept the group together, set a great pace, and provided lots of entertaining information about the gold mine. He would make occasional brief stops to let stragglers catch up, but would move at a fast, but comfortable, pace otherwise.

The ATVs, helmets, and goggles were in great shape and performed well. The trail included lots of loops through the desert, and also some great hill climbs. Some parts of the trail are very bumpy, but tolerable. At one point we passed by what looked like an old western town movie set. There were lots of cactus and desert foliage along the trail. The only wildlife we saw were three guys on dirt bikes.

Water was available on the trail, and after the ride lunch was a Subway lunch box, eaten at a table on the second floor of a barn-like building. A compressed air hose was available to dust off our shoes and clothing after the ride. Adequate rest-room facilities were available. No ATV experience required. If you're on the fence about doing it, go for it - you won't regret it.

My kids, Granddaughter and her boyfriend came to visit from out of state. They absolutely loved the zip line and rally cars. This Grandma also did the zip line (which was on my Bucket List!).

You will get your kicks riding the razors. Our trip started when Chad pick us up at Ballys (4 couples in our group). We then toured through Valley of the Fire State Park. Chad told many stories about what we were looking at. We made several stops for pictures. Then off to ride. Chad gave us our helmets and goggles. Then some brief instructions on how to ride. We then hit the dirt, sand, and hills. It was AWESOME. After riding we had a box lunch. We will definitely do another tour with Awesome Adventures on our next visit to Las Vegas.

When we vacation, it's always challenging to entertain our kids. However, we finally hit a homerun with Awesome Adventures' Desert Adventure Tour of Valley of Fire. It was well worth the money. Our guide, Landon, lead us on an exciting 2 hour ATV ride. We rode a 4 seat Polaris RZR and had the time of our lives! Thanks to Marge for booking us on this tour and leaving us with memories that will last a life time.
