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.

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.
The most fun I've had on this trip. I will do this again. Our guide was an interesting, well-traveled and wonderful young man and he was educated in the history of the towns we visited. LOVED IT!!
Ok let me start by saying I am not easily impressed. My wife and I booked this tour with Bindlestiff Tours as part of our visit to America. From the start of the trip Michael our guide put us at ease it was like we had been friends for yea...rs, nothing was to much trouble the information was delivered with good humour. Some tour guides you just hope will shut up they just bore you to tears, no problems here the day was totally amazing, I can honestly say that this trip made our holiday, I would highly recommend this company and especially Michael. If we return to America we will defiantly try and hire them to guide for us. Content 10 out of 10, Value for money 10 out of 10, service 10 out of 10, guide 10 out of 10, professionalism 10 out of 10. A very big thank you, Highly recommended Read full review
Would highly recommend. Our tour guide Joel was very knowledgable and made our trip interesting and informative and even dressed up as a cowboy for us. Fascinating insight into the Wild West as it was and is now. The 3 places we visited eac...h had their own individuality and different areas of interest to explore. I was also able to take some amazing photos of the area. Its only a shame that we couldn't spend a little longer at each place so that I could chat with the locals. I cant wait to go back again some day. Tours were very organised and kept me informed of picks up and timings unlike other tour operators I have used in the past. Read full review
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
