The serenity of the desert ride was worlds apart from the hustle and bustle of the strip. The silence was so relaxing and offered a great contrast on our trip. Charlie was our guide, he was expert and looked after us superbly well. Logistics worked out well and our Uber Driver even took us back to our hotel rather than the arranged drop off point. The dinner was tasty, although I would advise in managing expectations. It was a pre-packed meal rather than a live BBQ. But we were here for the horse riding and that delivered!

Dads Bday Gift Was a Hit!
Margarita_E, Feb 2024
I was so happy when I found this experience as I wanted to surprise my husband as he loves horses and we were celebrating his birthday. We were also able to get all the family on a ride with the barbecue sunset dinner which was very cool. Our guide was very knowledgeable of the nature and gave some great insight into the desert landscape. The horses were lovely and we stayed to feed them and spend time with nature. Would highly recommend. All in all, we are very happy and it was a memorable birthday for my husband and my kids.
Fun with cowboys

Riding through the desert at night was so cool. What a wonderful experience ❤️. The horses were easy to ride.
Highly recommend

Our guide, Grace was excellent!! She was very informative and professional. We had a great time and would highly recommend for anyone who loves the outdoors.
Stay away from these scammers

Tour operator was horrible at communicating from the start. The tour states to arrange transportation 24hours prior to booking, although I booked it within 10 hours of the tour starting. I was told I was on my own for transportation and hired a car service round trip (because cell service can be spotty in the mountains) *to the coordinates given on the tour in this app!* upon arrival to GPS 36.1853226,-114.9211512, there was no tour associated with this booking. After contacting support, the operator stated I was instead to meet elsewhere (so why have these coordinates in the directions?) and the blunder fell on me. Horrible and expensive experience for what was intended to be a proposal evening.

Hi! We send all details via email and text with directions. The second you book our system starts to automatically send out everything you need to know for your tour. We did not change any information for the meet up location on your group. Deciding to no show on your reservation can not be considered as our fault. We can not force clients to attend their reservation
Great experience on our quick weekend trip!
Stephanie_M, May 2023
Our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. She made us feel comfortable and even let us borrow a jacket because I was cold.
Maria_S, May 2023
Riding the horse felt so relaxing . The weather was perfect and the food was great. Had trouble with understanding the arrival process while the was nothing there but a parking space. We had to contact the tour guide by text message only .
Good ride & cold ribs
masen_y, Apr 2023
The guide was great, the trail was a wash also used by vehicles and the route was a horse shoe route that started and ended in the same place , more like a mule train pace , but great for 1st time riders. The bbq was not at all what we had imagined. Cold ribs packed hours before in styrofoam containers with a table set next to the horse trailer , you can imaging the the experience, that was cut rate. No hot bbq by a campfire 🔥
Response from Host, May 2023
Hi! Since we do not advertise a campfire dinner experience that would be why you did not get one. Sorry you misunderstood what you booked with us. The trail is a legitimate horse trail used only by horses. You do not travel the same trail both ways so you can see different scenery. The dinners are delivered as you ride by delivery company from a catered BBQ restaurant. Unless you decided to wait to eat until later on the meals are served hot and are fresh. Not sure how you would think they are hours old? That’s a misconception on your part.
Nice riding, food no good
Nina_B, Mar 2023
The riding itself was really nice and Grace, our guide, was friendly and talkative. But the BBQ dinner was not at all what we expected. We thought that there would be ready tables and a hot meal. In stead we were asked if we wanted to eat at the site, in which case the guide would bring a table at the parking space, or if we wanted the food to go! We chose to go because the parking space didn't look very inviting. So we were presented with a small cold meal in styrofoam that had been sitting in a truck for several hours. Needless to say, we didn't eat the meat or the beans due to inproper handling. If you book this tour, do the cheaper one without the dinner!
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Hi! We have meals catered fresh and hot by a BBQ catering company. They are not sitting in a truck for hours ! I can’t even imagine why you would have thought that? We do have chairs and tables set up ( where else would you sit but at chairs and tables? 🙃). Based on our other reviews the other clients all tell us the food is really good as we have large portions for you. The take out container is to allow you to take it back with you as most clients can not eat that much food in one sitting. By time you got the food back to your hotel 30 minutes away it would no longer have been hot. I think you missed out by not eating the meal provided onsite which is apart of the experience so this review is not accurate description of our BBQ tour ;)
Our tour guide was great,...
Alison_Z, Mar 2023
Our tour guide was great, thank you. Is there any chance that we could get one or two of the pictures that she took of us as a group? thank you, Alison
Great experience !!
Adriana_R, Sep 2022
It was great experience !! I’m Highly recommended the ride instructor Charlie it’s awesome !! Lovely sunset day !
Becky_M, Mar 2022
Paid a lot of money to ride in a trashy area of the dessert. Guide was on her phone texting instead of visiting. Rode about 1/4 mile on one side of the road and then back on the other side. Supper was served cold in a styrofoam container with a warm can of pop. I don’t usually write bad reviews but this was a joke! Hard to contact for address and time changed last minute etc. wish we would if cancelled!
Fun, Great, Amazing
Hector_S, Feb 2022
My daughter and granddaughter had a wonderful bonding experience while riding horses for the first time. A special thanks to our wonderful guide Grace, and our beautiful horses, Trigger, Rodeo, and Spot. Thanks to all of you. Also a special thank you to the cowboy who helped my granddaughter down from her horse Spot. He asked her how was her ride, and then complimented her and told her she was a natural and a cowgirl! Thank you for that! BBQ was great too! Overall great experience! Thank you.
we had such an amazing...
Ashlea_M, Feb 2022
we had such an amazing night and got to end our ride with a BBQ dinner while watching the rest of the sun set! Grace was an amazing host/guide. We will definitely be doing this again!
Falsely advertised and not worth the time.
Hoby_J, Nov 2021
This tour was advertised as a 2 hour experience, but the whole thing lasted 45 minutes! My family and I were very disappointed with the tour. When I asked for Viator or the Tour Company to make it right, they refused and denied a half refund. I want to say, the sunset was beautiful and the guide was polite, but it’s annoying when you do not get what you pay for. Just use caution when booking these tours. If you have never been on a horse and don’t want a long tour, this may be for you. If you and your family enjoy riding and want a more in-depth tour, book somewhere else. I highly recommend finding a local ranch and contacting them instead of using Viator. This experience as a whole was disappointing and a waste of time.
Response from Host, Dec 2021
Hi We are glad you enjoyed your guide scenery and safe gorgeous horses :) just an FYI for other clients reading this The tour time is approx 1.5-2 hour. This all depends how many riders are in a group. If there are a lot of riders it takes more time to set up. If only a couple riders it’s quicker to get through the signing waivers, riding instruction, safety speech , mounting horses, taking pictures etc. The ride on the horses is approx 1 hour. This also depends how fast the horses walk. Certain horses have longer strides and can move out quicker than others. But the same tour is taken for everyone. Then there is the dinner portion that is apart of the tour time as well. It would be impossible for the guide to have you sign waivers, give riding directions, get you on the horses , take three separate pictures , go for the tour, return and get you off and do the dinner portion in 45 minutes.
The view was beautiful...
Deanne_J, Oct 2021
The view was beautiful the horses were well trained for first timers grace was super friendly and knew alot about all the horses
Great yime
Lori_Z, Oct 2021
It was amazing. Grace the tour guide was wonderful. Horses are well trained and cared for. Eating when the sun was down in outdoors of the mountains was a great experience. The only down fall is if your going as a tourist from vegas. Drive uber is expensive. Thankyou Grace for looking out for me. Sad note. I never got the photos made many phone call with bo return to the message. I checked my spam and nothing.
Star_R, Sep 2021
It was a super relaxing and beautiful experience! I would definitely book again. Our tour guide was excellent i loved the bbq Set up as well.
A must do
Christine_T, Sep 2021
Our friends, hubby & I had a great time. Excellent, gentle horses & knowledgeable guides provided a perfect sunset ride & the BBQ diner after the ride was enjoyable.
Not a bad ride but starts to late
Thomas_B, Aug 2021
They should start at 6 pm it was pitch dark when we got back i just expected a cook out The horses was good
Response from Host, Aug 2021
Hi With the unexpected summer heat during the week of your tour we pushed ride back so your group could ride when it was 103 degrees instead of 116 degrees. With the moon and stars shining when you return from your ride to the main site our. other clients find it awesome and romantic to eat under a moonlit sky with stars covering the sky and lanterns with guides present :)
