A long day of travelling but made very enjoyable by our driver/tour guide Khriss. He is extremely knowledgable and told us some great historical facts as well as some fun stories. Our first stop was at Chloride. With a population of only just over 300, this was a quiet place. Make sure you visit with 'Diggger Dave' he is quite a character. Next we went to Oatman, on Route 66, this town only has the one street but is very lively by comparison. We arrived in the middle of a gunfight which was fun to watch. There are lots of burros donkeys walking about and they even wandered through the gunfight. Our last stop was at El Dorado. There are lots rusty of old cars, trucks and even a school bus lying around and a visit to the 'museum' is a must. There is a strange collection of items including mounted animal heads around the walls and an even weirder collection in the 'Area 52' room. A great day out and even though the travelling between towns takes a long time, if you get Khriss as your guide you are in for a treat. Thanks Khriss!
This was an amazing day out. Picked up on time, our driver/tour guide Khriss was great fun to be with. He has an amazing knowledge and gave us a wonderful day of historical and fun details. The three towns we visited were very different, Chloride with a population of just over 300 was quaint and quiet, we arrived in the middle of a gunfight at Oatman which was fun, especially as the local burros (donkeys) happily wandered through the middle of it and the museum at El Dorado was fascinating. It was a long day with a lot of driving between each town but hardly noticeable with Khriss keeping us amused with his stories and anecdotes- can't thank him enough for making it such a fab day. Wood recommend this tour to everyone- Ten out of ten !!
Lucky enough to get a personal tour with Khriss which covered a stop at Hoover Damn, 3 Ghost Towns and an old western gun fight. Khriss has a ridiculous amount on knowledge on Vegas and surrounding areas which made this a really interesting as well as fun trip. Packed lunch was excellent and would recommend this trip as great day out to get away from the hustle and bustle of the Vegas strip.
My fiance and I took a tour that made stops at the Hoover Dam and went into small towns in Arizona. Justin was our guide and was very knowledgeable, kind and answered any questions. Would definitely recommend!
Amazing and very interesting tour. Our tour guide Khriss did a great job! Gave us a lot of information about this tour. From Hoover Dam up to Chloride, Oatman and El Dorado. Best part of it was the St Patrick's day parade in Chloride.
What a great day we had. There were only 4 of us on this trip, so we had almost one on one attention from Michael our driver and guide. First stop Chloride and a meeting with 'Digger Dave'. This has to be one of the most bizarre and fascinating places I have ever visited. Not for what this town offers just how the people live and function on a day by day basis. Next stop Oatman. Another great experience and given it was on Route 66 just added to the fascination of this town. Seeing Donkeys Burro's simply wandering around this one street town was an experience on its own. Oatman calls itself the 'town which refuses to die' - and I certainly hope they are right because I would love to visit it again. Last stop El Dorado. Now this really is a ghost town, albeit during the time of our visit, a photographic shoot complete with scantilly clad ladies descended on the town. Very enjoyable !! Michael our bus driver and guide was superb and would thoroughly recommend this tour. Excellent value for money.
This was by far the best trip we have had so far. The mini bus was very comfortable and pick up was on time. The guide, Kriss, was outstanding and kept us entertained the whole day with his stories. The scenery is outstanding and the ghost towns gave us plenty to think about. If you only have time for 1 trip, then this is it.
We were picked up on time by Peter (our guide), who was excellent. We visited 3 Wild West ghost towns, Route 66, and the Hoover Dam. The tour exceeded my expectations, and we got some great photos. No other tour operators offer this tour, so well done to this tour company, if you're interested in the old west then do this tour, you even get to see a cowboy shoot out.
A well paced day trip, starting with a half hour stop to view The Hoover Dam and continuing on to three very different cowboy ghost towns - Chloride in the old silver mining region, Oatman, a real feel of the old West, and Eldorado, tiny but compelling. The guide, Chris, was extremely informative with a relaxed sense of humour, always approachable and tolerant of numerous requests for photo stops.
Fantastic trip! Our guide was very informative and seemed to know a lot about the history of Vegas and the towns that we visited. Oatmen was really enjoyable, I can't believe people love out there! It was fully air-conditioned and the other guests on the tour were good company! The lunches were great, more than I thought we were going to get. Would definitely recommend to get away from the hustle of Vegas for the day!
Went on the Ghost town explorer day trip. Experienced this tour company last year on their Zion National Park tour and was so impressed very happy to book with them again. Khris, our Guide, was a fountain of knowledge. He was interesting to listen to and made the day. The trip itself was different to the National Parks but as Khris says they "sell themselves".I thoroughly enjoyed the day and would recommend if you want something a little different. The tour company should be very proud of their tour guides and the service they offer.
