1. Hidden Valley and Primm Extreme ATV Tour

Hidden Valley and Primm Extreme ATV Tour

Tour Highlights:

  • Duration: 4 to 5 hours
  • Departure: Hotel pickup and drop-off included
  • Departure Time: Variety Available
  • Includes: Helmet, gloves and goggles, guide, bottled water, transportation to / from select Las Vegas Strip hotels

Let’s start things off with the Hidden Valley and Primm Extreme ATV Tour. Lasting 4 to 5 hours, it’s the perfect amount of time to spend to simultaneously relax and have a ton of fun! Including hotel pickup and drop-off, all you have to worry about is bringing along a sense of adventure!

A lot of people want to go to Vegas, but aren’t fans of the crowds. That may be a difficult dichotomy for some, but if you are into off roading you’re in luck!

You’ll start off by you and the rest of your group being picked up by an air-conditioned, comfortable vehicle that will transport you there and back. The trip there is only maybe 20, 30 minutes max so it’s not like it’s a hassle to get out there.

Along your route, you’ll pass the legendary Seven Magic Mountains, which is one of the most famous desert art installations in the area. If you’ve driven to Vegas before, you know that there are a ton of desert art installations out there, so that is really saying a lot.

Once you arrive on location, the staff will give you a safety briefing. This safety briefing is pretty, well, brief. As this tour does require that you have prior ATV experience, there’s not much instruction on how to use the vehicle, aside from the very basics. That makes sense though, and that’s not to say the staff wasn’t helpful.

Now you’ll get to zoom around the other-worldly desert landscapes, over winding rails, to mountain overlooks, and exhilarating, off-road racetracks. The lava beds were a crowd favorite of almost everybody, and really makes you feel like you’re on another planet.

2. ATV Tour in Las Vegas with Hotel Pickup

ATV Tour in Las Vegas with Hotel Pickup

Tour Highlights:

  • Duration: 3 hours
  • Departure: 6925 Speedway Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89115
  • Departure Time: Variety Available
  • Includes: Helmet, gloves and goggles, bottled Water, air-conditioned, pickup and drop-off option

Next up, we have a slightly shorter tour that’s perfect if your day is packed with plans. The ATV Tour in Las Vegas with Hotel Pickup lasts 3 hours, yet still includes hotel pickup and drop-off so everything is smooth and streamlined without having to pay for or schedule transportation in addition.

This one is great for those who haven’t gone ATV riding before, just as well for those who are experienced pros!

Once you’re picked up, you’ll share the shuttle bus that services any resort or hotel within the Las Vegas valley. Just be prepared for it taking up to 30 minutes to get to your destination, depending on how heavy traffic is, and how many stops there are.

Unlike the last tour, this one utilizes a shared shuttle instead of a private one. Not to worry though, as it doesn’t get packed or uncomfortable and is more or less the same amount of time spent in the vehicle.

Once you arrive on location, you’ll check in with the crew, where they’ll get you all fitted with your gear. We noticed that the goggles and helmets were in very good condition, and fit very well.

We appreciated the “little things” like the fact that they offer snacks and have restrooms and lockers included to keep your valuables.

After you are all ready to go, you’ll receive a briefing on safety and how to drive the ATVs. Before you set out, you can choose to take a few spins on their practice track, too. The staff is super friendly and helpful, should you have any doubts or questions.

The 30-minute ride is a blast, and comes with a free Hot Shot Photo of the group with your ATVs or Buggies, too.

The next tour on our guide is the Hidden Valley ATV Half-Day Tour from Las Vegas. This comprehensive tour lasts 4 to 5 hours, depending on traffic. However, we felt is was just the right amount of time to get away from the city and just let loose and have some fun in the “middle of nowhere”!

If you kind of want a break from the crowds (which Vegas has plenty of!) then check this one out. Even if you’re a complete newbie when it comes to ATVs, this tour will change your mind. The staff is fantastic at teaching newcomers.

They’re very patient, friendly, and keep safety at the forefront of their operation. Meet up with the guide at your hotel lobby and hop aboard your air-conditioned coach out to Jean. Located about half an hour from the strip, it’s perfectly located: not too far, not too close.

The trails can be a bit challenging, especially if you decide to go faster, but you can rest assured there is something for every experience level. The guides even made suggestions to change things up a bit and add even more excitement into the mix.

We found them to be very attentive, making sure everyone has a good time without being put in danger. They always make sure everyone has enough water, too, which is essential when out in the sunny desert.

The views are absolutely amazing, with the McCullough Mountain Range surrounding the area. We guarantee you’ll love the extinct lava beds, which feel like you’ve been transported to another planet or something!

The Primm Valley overlook is also breathtaking, and you’ll have plenty of time to grab some photos or videos!

This tour is the whole package, too: it includes round-trip transport to and from your hotel, plenty of water, snacks, and all necessary safety equipment to make sure everyone is safe! Once you arrive, the crew will fit you with a full-face helmet.

These helmets are clearly high-quality and well taken care of. They come with an in-helmet circulation system, keeping your head and face cool and making it easy to breathe.

Now that you have the proper gear, you’ll receive a safety briefing and instruction on how to use all the equipment and vehicles. We should mention that this tour isn’t actually on ATVs.

Rather, you’ll be speeding around in a 110HP side-by-side, which is perfect if you’re going with your significant other or a buddy. Not only that, but it’s great for those who don’t want to drive, themselves.

You’ll go through all kinds of beautiful, interesting desert terrain. The guides are professional off-road racers, and are extremely helpful and attentive. They’ll take you to different trails, depending on what you want to do and how confident you feel.

Each tour, they do take some time to stop for photos at particularly beautiful viewpoints. At this time, you can also switch drivers if you’d like.

After you cool off, you’ll get some free, refreshing beverages and snacks, along with a cool towel to clean off with, and a gift bag. It was a really nice gesture, and does make a big difference.
