This was worth every penny. We did the atvs and Casey was our guide. But let me tell you that the experience starts as soon as they pick you up from your hotel. Casey gave us history about vegas and had us laughing the whole way there. You end up in the middle of nowhere where you meet the other guides and other people riding. You get split into groups depending on what you are riding. Safety is number one for them and they make sure you are comfortable before getting on the trails(which is good for first -timers like us). We took the first tour in the morning(which is way better IMO, less heat longer rides) You make some scenery stops. The guides will even snap some photos for you! We stopped for a quick lunch at the outlet mall.(there is only like 3 options) Get ready to just be a dusty, sandy mess by the end(they have some cold baby wipes for you at the end). Casey got lucky with just us two and we definitely got lucky with him. He was patient and allowed us to go our own speed(we were definitely slower in the beginning) he made sure we were hydrated and definitely made sure we had fun. I would recommend this to everyone and next time I'm in the area I would do this again!
My 22 yr old daughter and I went on this ATV tour on Oct 27th - while we were in Vegas for the NHRA races. Although my daughter was skeptical re: the tour classification she is bit of a free spirit and was hoping to be let loose on the ATVs! - she was pleasantly surprised and we both had a great time! Of course - the best part is getting to run 55 mph across the flats: Bottom line, all went 100 according to plan. Pick up was on time at the designated hotel. Easy drive in the van to the valley. Quick and thorough instructions. Then onto the AVTs for about 3 hours stop for lunch at the mall just over the CA border included in that time. All the guides on the tour were just terrific! You won't go wrong with this shift off the strip in Vegas!
Don't waste your money on this. Tour guide was not friendly, and only cared about us not wrecking his machines. machines were fairly new but obviously not cared for as two of the six machines just quit halfway though the tour and we just left them on the side of the trail and then had to ride double the rest of the tour. trails were very rough and looked like they had never been maintained. Also don't plan on leaving the trail to play in the desert. Trail is only as wide as the machine and you HAVE to stay on the trail at all times. ABSOLUTELY BORING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! For the novice rider this tour will get you everything you were expecting. For the experienced rider you're going to want to get your money and your time back.
It was worth it!!! The guides were so nice and the tour took us through the most beautiful terrain!! I went with two other people and one was not as fast as the others, our guide would always check and make sure we could see her and we didn't leave her in the middle of the desert! They let us take pictures, made sure we were hydrated and made sure we had a overall good time. I highly recommend this and can't wait until I could do it again!
Had a great ride, saw some amazing views, blasted over flats at 55 MPH, and was very comfortable with the ride leader's management of the experience. They/the vendor knows what they are doing and scaled our ride experience so that our most and least experienced rider had a good time. Equipment was top notch - the quads were nearly new and super capable to eat up some rough trails and sand. The ride trail was also maintained by the vendor for safety and fun. One gap - the Viator instructions on where to meet at MGM were not the same as the vendor's pick up point. I suggest you confirm with the vendor for clarity.
Best ride for the price - book with confidence.
This was everything I thought it would be and more. I had looked into another atv riding service that was double the price of this and became skeptical when I found this one. I began reading all the reviews as I do with everything and I was convinced we had to try it. Just like what was stated previously in reviews- we booked the reservation and it gives you a list of hotels they only pick up at. You cannot be picked up from any outside that list even though it will give you the option to enter your hotel address in- they cannot pick up at any outside that list because they cannot fit their van with the atv's on the back in but certain pick up places. We were picked up from the hotel closest to us on time actually a few minutes early. Its about a 30 minute ride. There is no where to use the bathroom ladies, other than a bush- until about 2 hours in so be prepared! The atv's are big and nice and well maintained and FUN FUN FUN! You go to the top of a mountain and stop to overlook the view, take pictures. The guides provide you with water and answer any questions. Then you take a longer ride to a small town with a place called Buffalo Bill's. Its basically a mall area with a food court. You get 30 minutes to stop and rest inside and eat lunch. Then you make your way back to where you started, If you make good time or everyone is riding well- they will take onto this dried up lake bed. It is massive and very flat and you are able to get up to a faster speed than the trails and it is the best part! They stop and will take your pictures on the atv's out in the desert for you and provider you with more water if needed. The overall experience was a once in a lifetime amazing fun thing I would do again and again if I went back out to Las Vegas. The guides are VERY knowledgeable of the trails, providing you with all the information before you get started, and also will provide you with a helmet, goggles, and gloves. A few pointers: you will get VERY dirty and I mean like dirt caked on every spot of your body. So make sure you wear clothing your prepared to get dirty in. It will also get very hot towards the end. Sunscreen is a must even if you have a job outside on the daily in it. I shared my sunscreen with men who were very dark colored from being in the sun. Please use the gloves! There will be portions of the trails that get a little bumpy and you will wish you had that extra grip. The atv's are easy to use- even if you've never been on one. The are automatic and you have a brake on the left handle, throttle button on the right. That is all you need to use when riding. The trails vary from kinda rough terrain to some smoother places. If I can manage then most people should be fine. I read if you get person kinda going slower than the rest it can be a somewhat bummer for the others. We did not have one of those people so we were pretty constant on staying up to speed and enjoying ourselves. You have a guide in the front leading the way and one in the back. No one is left behind and if you get too far apart they will stop and wait for everyone to catch up. Its important to stay on the trails- dont go off and relax! Have fun! I promise you will NOT be disappointed. The views the whole time were absolutely stunning so try to take it all in as you go! Last thing- don't bring alot with you and make sure you have closed up pockets or a zipped up fanny pack/pocket/small bookbag. We only took our phones, sunscreen, and a small amount of money for lunch. Best part of my trip to Las Vegas was this ATV tour! Oh- dont forget to tip your guides/driver. They shown you an amazing time and most importantly- kept you safe while doing so!
