After you are picked up at your Las Vegas hotel, the tour will take you to Maverick Terminal for an opportunity to purchase Starbucks products before leaving Las Vegas to travel to the Hoover Dam for a quick view of the Colorado River and photo opportunity. Next you are off to Eldorado Canyon to explore the Techatticup Mine while enjoying a warm cinnamon roll from a local Las Vegas bakery. You will be briefed by one of their expert guides on the history of the mine and Eldorado Canyon in their General Store. The mine entrance is just a short walk away where you are transported back in time when mining was a way of life for Southern Nevada. The tour inside the mine is approximately an hour. Afterwards, you will have time to shop and take pictures of the surrounding area, which has also been used for a number of famous movies! Before heading back to Las Vegas, we will take you to the Nelson Overlook for a gorgeous view of the Colorado River flowing through Eldorado Canyon.
