Learn about Nevada's mining history during a guided tour of the Grand Canyon and Eldorado Canyon. The tour starts with a complimentary ride from your hotel and continues on a state-of-the-art helicopter. As you fly above the desert, listen to educational narration with choreographed music that shares details about the sights you see on the ground. One of those sights, the Grand Canyon's West Rim, introduces you to the majestic scenery and marvel of this natural wonder. Continue your flight from the Grand Canyon, land at Eldorado Canyon and experience the history of this important mining site. In addition to touring the Techatticup Gold Mine and Mill, journey into the desert on your choice of an ATV or Baja Jeep. A boxed lunch with champagne are included before you head back to your Las Vegas hotel via a shuttle van.
Eldorado Activities (One of the following is included in this package):
ATV (PBW-EA): Experience the best ATV Tour Las Vegas has to offer. Ride your ATV on an Off Road excursion up and around trails that were meant for Big Horn Sheep and Mule driven Ore wagons. Big open sky, the Colorado River and 3 dimensional views of the mountain ranges leading to the Grand Canyon are an awesome site to take in from the top of our trail head. ATVs are late model, 4 wheel drive, fully automatic and a blast to operate! After a Safety Operations Orientation, both beginners and experienced riders will be ready to hit the trail with your Professional Guide. You will ride on extreme mountain terrain, surrounded by forests of Cholla cactus, with towering multi-colored rock formations as the backdrop for this incredibly scenic tour.
Baja Jeep (PBW-EJ): Continue exploring the area on one of the Eldorado Canyon with a Baja Jeep ride through desert trails. On your ride, view historic areas, mountain tops and an old mining shaft 900 feet below ground. Conclude with a champagne picnic lunch before returning to your hotel with memories to last a lifetime!
