The town was the site of one of the first major gold strikes in Nevada and one of the biggest mining booms in state history. The community called Nelson was named for Charles Nelson, a camp leader who was slain in his home, along with four other people, in 1897 by the renegade Indian, Avote

Had the pleasure of doing the ATV- Gold mine tour today with Sherman and Alisha and all I can say is what a spectacular tour, and more importantly tour guide. From pick up to return Sherman was a fountain of knowledge and the tour was amazing. The Rzr side by side was great for the wife and I and the gold mine was breathtaking. If you're having ANY doubt about taking this trip, dont it's well worth it. Ask for a trip hosted by Sherman and Alisha and I can assure you that you will get your money's worth. Do yourself and everyone on the trip a favor, take 10 seconds to look at the weather forecast and dress appropriately. makes for a much more enjoyable day for everyone. We liked this so much we're making our summer family trip plans to came back in July!

Not The Greatest Experience

Okay so I had a good time but there were some issues I want to point out so that they will be more aware... When we got to the site the tour ppl disappeared for about 40min and left our entire group standing outside of this store confused. Once we were in the mines, the guides talked wayyyy too much, especially when they started going into their own personal stuff, but I did enjoy the overall experience of going into the mines. Once we returned from the mines, they had us waiting outside again with no communication on what was going on, we were all so confused! That would’ve actually been a great time to serve us lunch but instead we just waited around for a while. We did a LOT of riding, which I thoroughly enjoyed. Once we returned we finally ate lunch somewhere around 2pm and then waited around for about another hour for the guides to reappear and take us back to our hotel. Most important part ... WHEN PUTTING ON OUR GEAR, THE GUIDE ASSURED US ALL THAT EVERYTHING WAS WASH AND SANITIZED! WELL LATER ON THAT EVENING I NOTICED THAT I DEVELOPED A RASHED WITH TINY SKIN TONED BUMPS AROUND MY HANDS AND WRISTS WHERE I HAD WORN THE GLOVES! I would take a picture but again they’re skin toned so I can’t see them as much as I can feel them ... WHICH brings me to believe that THEY LIED ABOUT THAT STUFF REALLY BEING WASHED AND SANITIZED!!!

Thank you for sharing your experience with us. We will address the lack of communication and put emphasis on how important it is for our guides to communicate with our guests. Due to the popularity of the tour location, there are times when movies and/or music videos are being filmed. And that may play an influence in delays. There are also times when we have to wait for our self-drive guests to arrive. We understand how that may inconvenience our guests. But for the most part, our self-drive guests usually arrive early. With that being said, any delays should not be longer than 15-20 minutes. Another delay that may occur is during our routine safety inspection. Each day that we run a tour, it is a requirement for our guides to do a safety inspection on all machines going out for the day. This ensures the safety of all guests on the tour. We certainly apologize for the rash that appeared on your hands and wrists. However, each day we do sanitize and wash all of our equipment that is used. This includes gloves, goggles, helmets, and head socks. We appreciate your valuable feedback and will address the issues that you have experienced.

Extremely fun and well worth the money! Our guide Alisha was great and went above and beyond by identifying the more experienced riders shortly after heading out and taking us on a faster more enjoyable ride. Only complaint is that the vans to/from the hotels are dated and did get uncomfortably warm inside even in February. Still highly recommend!
