Description

Take a look back at the industry that defined the 19th-century West with a visit to the Techatticup Mine. With some spectacular views of El Dorado Canyon and a look at one of the most productive gold mines of its day, you get some first hand experience with Nevada's remarkable past.

After you're picked up from your hotel, head out across the desert for a look at the gargantuan Hoover Dam. Next, you're off to El Dorado Canyon, where your expert guide briefs you on the region's history before you step into the mine itself.

Once you cross the entrance, you're back in a time when mining was a way of life, helping to fuel the growth of cities across southern Nevada and industries across the country. After the tour, you have some time to get pictures of the surrounding area, and admire a spectacular view of the Colorado River from the Nelson Overlook, before you head back to Las Vegas.

Very well organised tour. Tommy the driver was full of useful knowledge. Bruce was excellent with his expertise of the mines. A very good experience.
