Summary of The Day: Our tour departs Sin City for a short drive to the Hoover Dam. This 726 dam holds back the mighty Colorado River. Behind the Hoover Dam you find Lake Mead. A beautiful man made reservoir that is contained within the Black Canyon Walls. Take all the Dam photos you want!
Next we head to the little mining town of Chloride Arizona. This little community has survived the harsh desert environment since the 1860's. Silver and other minerals were mined here for decades. After the mining boom was over, Chloride nearly became a ghost town itself. Today Chloride is home to about 250 residents who are still very proud of their mining history. Browse the antique shops and chat with the locals before you enjoy lunch. Admire many artistic sculptures of this joyful artist's community.
Our next stop takes us for a drive along the iconic Route 66 highway to the small ghost town of Oatman Arizona. The present day population of this ghost town is 150 people and 1 poltergeist. He goes by the name of "Oatie the Ghost" and is believed to be the poor spirit of William Ray Flour, an Irish miner who died behind the Oatman hotel.
Enjoy views of the Black Mountains that surround this one time mining tent camp, photograph the tumbleweeds and the wild burros (donkeys) that freely roam through this town. Have your picture taken along side modern day cowboys and bandits while posing in front of an authentic Route 66 sign and take part in your very own western shoot out!
Time for a drink in the local saloon before we make our way through the Mojave Desert along the Veterans Memorial Highway. This roads cuts straight through beautifully empty desert landscape. It is the perfect way to remember the openness of this part of America before returning to the big city lights and the glitz & glamour of Las Vegas.

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, Ch...loride 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 !! Read full review
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. Read full review
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 tourguide 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 fascina...ting 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. Read full review
