Located just a short 45 minutes from the Las Vegas Stipp is the historical Techatticup Mine known as the Eldorado Canyon. So gear up to be immersed in a true wild west experience at one of Nevada’s richest gold mines. There are tales of gold fever and claim jumping, disastrous floods, fortunes won and lost wild politics, and more. Hear true stories of the men who blasted their way underground in search of buried treasure.
You’ll learn from a local expert about gold mining in southern Nevada at the Techatticup gold mine, which operated from 1861 until 1942. While you’re there, explore a private collection of old cars, memorabilia, and souvenirs from movie sets filmed in the area. Restrooms and a gift shop are available.
Your certified Pink Jeep Tours guide will give you the colorful history of this remote and once-thriving mine, and point out unique features of the desert landscape. Check out an abundance of desert plants like the Teddy Bear Cholla. They look soft enough to hug, but these teddy bears will hug you right back, in a prickly way you won’t soon forget!
A short drive from the mine reveals interesting geological formations and ends at an overlook above a beautiful stretch of the Colorado River at Nelson’s Landing. Cameras ready for a terrific photo op! For 40 years of the mine’s history, coming up the river on a steamboat to this spot was the main way to reach the mine.

The helicopter ride was outstanding and the Hummer off road was great. Plenty of information, good food and great value for money! Thanks guys
Wow what a day!!! Our guide Brett was brilliant. He was so knowledgeable and gave us a broad insight to the history of Vegas, and surrounding areas. I would highly recommend Big Horn Hummer Tours, they are brilliant. They cater to your needs and adjust tours like they did ours as we wanted to include the skywalk and a chopper flight. Once again a huge thank you to Brett and Big Horn Hummer Tours. We'll be definitely coming back in the future.
My wife and I went on a fabulous tour. Our guide, Randy, was very knowledgable on all facets of our journey. Every little detail was explained. I would have no qualms at all in reccomending Randy and Big horn tours. We had been told by another to book with Big horn tours, a definately massive must do for anyone. The Grand Canyon and the Helicopter flights both took our breath away. Thankyou Randy and Big horn tours.
We cannot say enough praise for Big Horn Tours, Scott, and Sean! Scott was our tour guide for the Grand Canyon yesterday and Sean showed us the Hoover Dam today. These guys were a wealth of knowledge and so attentive to their guests. We took advantage of the Skywalk and Helicopter option for the GC and Scott made sure we were exactly where we needed to be each step of the day. The accommodations were fabulous, the service was top-notch, and the experiences were beyond our expectations. Thank you!!
