    Joy was our driver and guide. She was friendly and informative. She lives the area so it was nice to have a local flavor added to our tour. Lots of beautiful views of the desert and mountajns. We never felt rushed on the tour. We drove in a mini van with lots of bottled water available. Small group tours are a great way to explore and Desert Wonder Tours was an excellent adventure.

    Great fun in Oatman Arizona.
    Jacqueline_G, July 2023
    Oatman Arizona was my husband's favorite trip while in Vegas. He recently passed away so I brought my granddaughters and my BFF to see what Papa loved. Mike and Bob made sure it was perfect. The gun fight, the burros and the fabulous scenery from Rt 66. We had a great lunch at the Hotel and Saloon. The food was really good and our server Sue was great. We were picked up right on time at our Hotel. I would recommend this excursion to anyone old or young. Thank you Mike and Bob for your knowledge and kindness and super customer service 👍
    Loved it

    Thank you for the great review, Nancy. Joy is our newest driver who is already a pro! We love our small group tours that never, ever herd people like some of the larger companies do!

    Enjoyed our tour Michael was very nice. Very knowledgeable about local history. Oatman was interesting. Food was great at the restaurant and the beers were cold at the bar.
    Response from Host, June 2023
    Sounds like you had a pretty great day. Our guest do enjoy the food and the food names in the Oatman restaurant like Donkey ears! Thank you for the nice review!

    Micheal our driver was vey good, friendly, helpful and informative. The experience was also very good, a great way to spend the day away from the strip!
    Response from Host, June 2023
    Many of our guests tell it that is refreshing to get away from the crowd for a while. So glad you enjoyed it!
    low key, easy going tour
    Adam_B, Mar 2023
    Brandon seemed pretty cool. Knew a lot about where we were going. We really enjoyed the part of route 66 that went through the extremely curvy sections of the mountainous areas.
    Response from Host, June 2023
    That curvy Route 66 through the Black Mountains is a thrill for many of our guests. Thank you for the nice review!
    Even though we didn’t get...
    Jamie_H, Mar 2023
    Even though we didn’t get to see Burros around town, it was still an excellent place to see! Bob, or driver, also made our trip fun!
    Response from Host, May 2023
    The Burros were grazing in the hillsides due to all the greenery from recent prolific rains in the area. It's a nice break from them, but a disappointment for Oatman visitors. Thankfully it's spotty and temporary. They will be back! Thank you for your review. Isn't Bob a hoot!? And so knowledgeable.
    Thumbs up! Very educational as well as fun for all.
    juliejasey, Jan 2023
    Excellent tour excursion! Nice get away from Las Vegas totally different from anything close to the city. Bob was a wonderful guide. Highly recommended. Excellent choice for adults and kids.
    Response from Host, Apr 2023

    Oatman Mining Tour
    David_K, Oct 2022
    We had a lot of fun on this tour. Robert, our guide, had extensive firsthand knowledge of the area and its history. He made several interesting stops along the way. The old mining town of Oatman and the gun fight was my favorite part of the tour.
    Response from Host, Nov 2022
    Thank you for choosing to experience the Oatman Mining Tour with Desert Wonder Tours, David. I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed yourself and found our guide's knowledge to be extensive and interesting. The old mining town of Oatman is definitely a sight to behold and I'm happy you enjoyed it as much as we do! We hope to see you on one of our tours again in the future!
    Fun in Oatman
    Donna_L, July 2022
    Oatman is a perfect place for a family day trip. The 6 year old in our party loved the wild burros roaming around and seeing the gunfight at noon. We had a nice lunch in the hotel restaurant in town. Brandon, our tour guide was knowledgeable and made it a fun day for us all.
    Response from Host, Sept 2022
    Oatman is a great family tour. We so appreciate you taking your time to share your experience with Desert Wonder Tours with others.
    Great trip!
    Jodie_A, Mar 2022
    Very pleased with this trip. We were the only people on it so paid a small fee for pick up and basically had a private tour. Sharon was great and very knowledgeable. Would highly recommend this trip and company
    Rebecca_S, Mar 2022
    Was a good experience, lovely day out Tour guild was brilliant also Nice little town, bars and shops
    Everything we expected and more
    Susan_W, Oct 2021
    Our guide, Robert was friendly, very knowledgeable, and made sure we got to see and do everything we wanted. He even stopped at a sandwich shop on the return trip so we could get a bite to eat. We most definitely would tour with this company again.
    Great experience
    Elaine_T, Aug 2021
    We had a great tour guide “Sarge” and we loved the burrows . We ate at the oatman hotel and we thought the money was cool that everyone left.
    Response from Host, Sept 2021
    Isn't the restaurant amazing with the walls covered in money dating back to pre WWII when the tradition began! Gotta love the burros! Thank you for choosing Desert Wonder Tours.
    Great tour! Wonderful hosts!!
    Michelle_L, Aug 2021
    We had a great time! Will & Shantel were wonderful - they even brought us donuts when they picked us up. The tour was entertaining and very educational and the drive is so pretty. We would definitely recommend this tour!
    Response from Host, Sept 2021
    So glad you had a great time! Thank you for recommending us!
    Amy_D, June 2021
    Sarge and Will did a great job with the tour, had our very own private comedy show LOL. Lots of great information on the tour as well as the KEEPERS OF THE WILD feeding tour, don't get gas in NV, etc. We will definitely recommend to others traveling through
    Response from Host, June 2021
    That you for taking time to leave us a review, Amy, and for choosing Desert Wonder Tours for your tour experience. Sarge and Will are a comedy show for sure! We are grateful for their knowledge and enthusiasm. As we love to say, "It's not the tour; it's the Experience"!
    Great personal service and value for money tour
    RaynesMark, Mar 2020
    I was impressed with Bob. He came miles out of his way to Vegas just to pick me up and really gives it the personal touch. Because of that you get to make some great photo stops at spectacular points on and near route 66. The main stop offs are an interesting little 66 museum at Kingsman, the at a scenic roadside station at clear springs. Then the winding road high up where at one point you can see three states. Finally Oatman, a preserved but living old western village, that has some great little shops, a tiny jail and mine entrance. They have even named one of the many wild donkies or burros as they are known here, as mayor. The donkies stayed out of town during my visit due to a mountain lion being up in the hills. If you like something more personal than a big bus tour this is for you, relaxed and informal, a good 7ish hour tour. Even got a souvineer t shirt as part of the deal.
