Our Guide had a great personality, you could tell she’s done this for a while and knows about the area and was quite the story teller, in a good way of course. The ATVs were fun, the machine ran well and the other machines (razors) looked almost brand new. The trails were easy to follow and a beautiful area. Only thing I would have liked is that maybe stopping for a few mins and taking some pictures of the scenery while back on the trails. Other than that great job! It was fun! Thank you.

The tour was fantastic!
Raymond_S, Mar 2024
The tour guide was fantastic! She was knowledgeable about the area and made the tour fun. She was also full of fun anecdotes and stories about the area and the gold mine.
Response from Host, Mar 2024
Thank you so much for your review! We are so happy you enjoyed the tour, our guides always make fun and they are very knowledgeable
Erica_G, Dec 2023
This trip was with every penny! We debated on a 1/2 day or a full day and glad we picked the full day. We decided to book the side by side instead of the ATVs and glad we did. The whole experience was amazing. During the ride our tour guide, Jenson, stopped for several photo ops. After the ride we stopped for the lunch that was provided for the full day tour. Our group was pleased with the ride alone and when we didn’t think it could get any better we then went for the mine tour. Alicia was the tour guide for the mine. Learning the history of the mine and hearing all the stories was really cool. Our party of 4 would recommend this adventure to anyone looking to have a great time off the Vegas Strip.
Response from Host, Dec 2023

RubenSalas, May 2023
If your looking for an adventure with speed then this is. It for you. It’s slow pace driving through the dirt fields on the backside of the mountains not much to see or excitement. They should had specified that on the tour that this tour is slow pace and only in the fields. I give it to our guide who tried her best to make the best experience for all of us. Speed on the ATV/ RSR around 20-25mph. FYI
Response from Host, May 2023
Thank you for your feedback! This tour is for everybody from families, groups, bachelor parties, bachelorette parties, all ages and groups love our tours. This is described as a SCENIC tour, not an adrenaline rush tour. And you cannot beat the sightseeing in Nelson NV and the beautiful mountain, it is a One of a Kind location that has been visited by thousands and thousands of people. Movies and music videos have been filmed here, and photographers are at this location on a daily basis.
My best friend and I had...
Mattie_V, May 2023
My best friend and I had a blast! It was both our first time experiencing Vegas and ATV riding. Our tour guide (Alisha) was awesome! She was kind, knowledgeable and kept us hydrated and laughing the entire time. I would definitely recommend Awesome Adventures, and Alisha. 10 out of 10 experience! :)
Response from Host, May 2023
Thank you so much for your AWESOME review! We are so glad you chose us as your first adventure in Vegas. Alisha is pretty amazing and very knowledgeable
Full day tour was the bomb!!
Sharon_S, Apr 2023
Eric was our guide, and OMG he was great. A guide can make or break an adventure, and he made it a fabulous day for everyone. He was so personable, and a wealth of information on the area and tour of the mine. Their equipment was in great condition and the ride was through very scenic area. We lucked into seeing blooming cactus. Safety and fun was a priority for Eric. He encouraged drinking plenty of water to keep us hydrated. The lunch was delicious and much needed after the ride. Highly recommend this adventure and I hope you get Eric!
Response from Host, Apr 2023
Thank you so much for your AWESOME REVIEW! We are so happy Eric really made your day! We love hearing how much fun and enjoyment our customers have in our tours
Beginner/Entry Level Riders
Asarel_M, Apr 2023
The trip was not that exciting or adventurous. I was was thinking we would get off and explore places. At the end, It seemed the ride was for entry level riders.
Response from Host, Apr 2023
This is described as a SCENIC TOUR, it is not a tour that you will be going 50mph. This tour is not only for beginners but also experts, and we have the reviews to show them too. We are so sorry we did not live up to your expectations. The location where our tours are done and the tours we provide are very liked by lots of people
Best tour of our trip
