Hotel Pickup From the Vegas Strip

Your unique afternoon adventure begins with pickup at your hotel on the Strip. A friendly driver will collect you and your small group of fellow travelers to take you on a comfortable 45-minute drive to a private ranch in the desert just north of Las Vegas. You'll arrive in time to make to most of your afternoon in the Wild West.

Please contact us after booking with your hotel name for pick-up and we'll reach out to confirm your pick-up time. If your hotel isn't on the Strip or the pick-up list, we'll suggest a convenient nearby location for you to join the tour from.

Ride the Desert Trails at Sundown

Your small, friendly team of professional ranch hands will match you with your perfect horse and find you the right helmet, before you saddle up and set off on a trail ride through part of the Mojave Desert. These horses know the way even without your friendly wrangler guide leading them, and their calm and easy nature makes the ride relaxing and simple, even for a complete beginner.

On your ride, you'll have an experience reminiscent of the cowboys that made the American West famous. Enjoy the peaceful beauty of the desert in the fading afternoon light, and take in the magical scene as the sun begins to set over the mountains. With any luck, you may even spot a jackrabbit darting across the trail!

After around 1.5 hours, the trail will eventually lead you back to the ranch where the chef will be preparing a feast by the campfire.

Authentic and Delicious Western-Style Dinner

After your horse is safely back in the stable, it's time to sit around the fire to enjoy a western barbecue dinner. The menu includes steak or mesquite grilled chicken, baked potato, corn on the cob, dinner rolls, and a slice of good ol’ American apple pie. Enjoy sharing stories with other riders of your journey out on the trail.

As the evening draws in, you'll hop back on the bus to return to Las Vegas, just in time for a different kind of wild experience—a night on the Vegas Strip!
