Itinerary
Day 01
Oatman

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.

    Excellent Tour

    As a travel agent out here in Vegas, I do a lot of tours and this one is one of my favorites. I did the Ghost town Explorer, such a great tour. Mike was very knowledgeable and fun on our trip. Would 100 % do this tour again. Also I might ad...d, I'm very fond of the name, Bindlestiff, perfect name for a tour company. Read full review

    Highly Recommend!

    We chose to go on the ghost town day trip. There were only 5 of us in total, which I don't understand as I couldn't find any other tour companies offering this. We loved it and would highly recommend it. Jon/John was our guide. He was a ver...y polite, laid back guy with unbelievable knowledge of the area. First stop was a strange town called Chloride- off the tourist track and we enjoyed talking to several locals and found out more about it. Next town was okham - just as we imagined it but busier! Loved feeding the wild Burros that came into town, watched a shoot out and brought some lovely leather belts. Last town was Eldorado good mine. My first impressions was 'what are we doing here' it was rather strange but once out exploring it was definitely our favourite. Just sitting on the porch taking in the ambience of the past was wonderful. The scenery and history of the areas was the real Wild West. We even ventured onto a small part of Route 66! Take the trip it won't disappoint Read full review

    Interesting Tour

    It was an interesting tour with a knowlegable and friendly guide. All three towns were interesting in their own way. The guide knew the history and geography of the area and told it well.
