What people are saying about Nevada, USA

Beautiful views,would recommend if you go during winter months to dress warm,gloves and hat/scarf! The location in winter months is in the desert so plan on either driving or very reliable transportation. We relied in Uber/Lyft,the way to location with Lyft was great but getting Uber or Lyft return took almost 1/2 hour! Grace our guide was very nice! would do all over (maybe in warmer months)!

We celebrated my husband's 40th birthday and had an AMAZING time. Grayce, our guide was exceptional in explaining everything and being a pleasant host for us. The scenery was amazing and the timeframe of the tour was perfect... not too long and not too short.

It was an amazing ride, we enjoyed the quiet, the mountains and all the awesome info our guide gave us about the area, we would definitely recommend it and will do it again next time we are in Vegas!!! Thank you so much!

It was our first time riding horses. The horses were calm and easy to guide. It was an awesome experience.

Fab experience… the people are soooo kind and accommodating a great experience x
