DETOURS of Nevada is expanding their tour destinations to include one of the oldest and richest gold mines in the United States: Techatticup Mine at Eldorado Canyon. This month the tour operator begins taking reservations for individuals and small groups for the guided half day tour departing from the Las Vegas Strip that explores the famous mine. The Techatticup Mine at Eldorado Canyon is located in Clark County about 45 minutes southeast of Las Vegas.
“We are pleased to add the Techatticup Mine at Eldorado Canyon to our growing list of tour destinations,” says DETOURS President and CEO Carl Grupp, “Southern Nevada has some of the richest history in the American West and we are proud to be one of the few tour guide teams to showcase one of the most well preserved mines.”
The Eldorado Mine tour begins after guests are picked up from their hotel on the Las Vegas Strip and driven just a short distance to the first photo stop at the Hoover Dam. Then it’s off to the Techatticup Mine at Eldorado Canyon where the expert tour guide talks about the history of the mine and Eldorado Canyon at the General Store. The mine entrance is just a short walk away and once inside guests will be transported back in time to when mining was a way of life for Southern Nevada. Much of the original mining equipment can still be seen. After the one hour mine tour, guests will have time to shop and take photos of the surrounding mining town that appeared in a number of famous movies. At the conclusion of the mine tour, guests will be treated to one last photo opportunity at the Nelson Overlook before being dropped off at the hotel with plenty of time to enjoy the remainder of the day.
Tours start at just $99 and include convenient pick-up and drop off location, unlimited bottled water, snacks, and all entrance fees. To book now go to detoursnv.com
