Rated 5 out of 5 by raggiepup Worth every dollar
Slight delay on pick up but the strip is not an easy route to travel around , the driver was polite and friendly and very knowledgeable but we could not hear him at the back of the bus. So we only got snippets of info (could do with a speaker microphone ).
Stopped on the way for quick shop and toilet break , ideal opportunity to grab some beer for dinner.
Arrived at ranch and warmly greeted by Ceasar and his father , we were well instructed as first time riders and were made to feel relaxed.
The ride was absolutely brilliant , and timed to perfection to see the sunset over the mountains.
Back at the ranch the food was ready , we had steak, corn , jacket potato and beans followed by hot apple pie. It was all washed down nicely with a cold drink.
This is a must do once in a lifetime trip suitable for anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by M1narco1 Real people nice tour..... Met Ms. Bonnie
I always read the worst reviews first. We were picked up on time, 30-35 minutes later we were at Bonnie springs, our driver was young, helpful and friendly. We completed the paperwork, waited about 20 minutes for others to arrive. There were plenty of things that occupied us, peacocks, longhorn steer and the bartender at Bonnie springs bar. The ride was slow calm and there were plenty of ups and downs just to keep the rider from becoming complacent.
Afterward we had dinner at the bar (included in the price) our drinks weren't. Easy van ride home.. Definitely recommend... Oh and the sun actually went down. My companions tell me that I should heap extra praise on our van driver is young boy think it was a sophomore at UNLV studying engineering he did a great job

by MattyK Delightful Experience! Highly recommend as a breath of fresh air!
I am beyond glad that I decided to book this ride. Nothing quite provides a relieving contrast to the hustle of Las Vegas than a breath of fresh air in such a beautiful, peaceful and historic valley. I will carry the memory of the experience whenever I go to Nevada.
Our shuttle driver picked us all up in a timely manner, and navigated the city well, as we all stayed in different hotels. He was respectful and knowledgeable about the area, making the drive educational and entertaining.
The ranch is very well kept, and our two guides were friendly, with plenty of knowledge on horses and history, and they took steps to make sure we were well taken care of.
The ride itself was exactly the breath of fresh air that I needed, after 24 hours of typical Vegas. As someone who rides regularly, I can say that the horses were well taken care of, and were pleasant throughout the entire evening. We got to see some gorgeous sites, including the edge of the Valley of Fire, a lake in the middle of the desert, canyons, mountain ranges, and plenty of red rock. The whole trip was about 2 hours.
Upon arriving back at the ranch, the guides were remarkably grateful for our company, and continued to make us feel welcome. Our shuttle driver had prepared a BBQ for us, with steak, chicken or salmon, bakes beans, corn, baked potatoes, bread rolls, and apple pie. We enjoyed a great meal with the pleasure of a nearly unparalleled sunset.
Following dinner, we enjoyed a campfire, and became close as a diverse group, considering we all had met just hours before. We then got to try our hand at roping a steel calf on the ranch, before a relaxing drive home.
I highly recommend this to anyone with an appreciation for outdoor activities, horses, history, or even anyone who just wants to relax.

This was a nice relaxed tour, small & a welcome break from the business of the city. The pickup driver & tour guides were personable & friendly. I would definately go again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Chamarel Pass your way
I was thrilled to do this riding tour that should have been an unique experience but it didn't meet my expectations instead it was very disappointing kind of amateurism. First the shuttle picked me up with 25 min late. Waiting all this time in the heat is tough. The vehicle looked worn; the worst the air conditioned did not work. It was hot out there and we were not even offered with a bottle of cool water. On site, the horses were ready and after a few recommendations we left the camp. The rangers were ok but not very talkative person. Even if it was fine with me to ride in silence in the desert I would have appreciated some comment on the surroundings. The landscape was beautiful though and sunset is spectacular in the desert. Back to the camp where the dinner was ready, it was average quality and again the rangers did neither dine nor speak with us. No campfire as detailed in the ad. The return to the hotel on time with the same no air conditioned vehicle. Frankly it is not worth the price paid. Pass your way.
