The tour was amazing frm start to finish. Every single person we encountered - frm David our shuttle Driver, to Nancy our tour guide were absolutely wonderful! The horses were beautiful, the views were amazing - we got to spend a lot of time on the horses too which was awesome. Then after we had a great -surprisingly and unexpectedly GREAT - dinner. There was coffee, hot chocolate, soft drinks etc, then we ended it all with a bonfire and smores. It was the absolute best part of my trip. Would do it again in a hearbeat!! Thank you so much to everyone at Cowboy Trail Rides for such an amazing experience!

My wife and I did this tour and had a great time. We are newbies to horse back riding but the staff made it very comfortable for us and the horses are very well trained, tame, and easy to ride. Not only that but the BBQ afterwards was delicious, well definitely go back again on our next trip to vegas.

As it was the first time I have ever rode horseback, I found the experience exhilarating. The staff were wonderful. If I was to find any fault at all , it would be that all customers should be made to wear a helmet, because it was first class experience. Wonderful evening enjoyed myself immensely.

We had an absolutely amazing time. The horses were very well behaved and the wranglers were very resourceful and friendly. The food afterwards was the best we had all week in Vegas. We would come back to Vegas just to ride here again. Highly recommended!
10 STARS!! Thank you for the highlight of our vacation!

A great experience for someone who has never ridden a horse before - couldnt sit down the next day though! The journey there was fine - maybe could have done with some narration from the coach driver although to be fair we did have a passenger who played her i-pod music to break the silence. Had to sign a waiver on the coach to say whether we wanted to wear protective headgear or not and although we said yes, we were not offered it at the site. The horses were fabulous, so gentle and well-trained. The wranglers were excellent and the trail was really good with great scenery and fantastic weather. Really enjoyed the horse ride and would definitely recommend this. The only thing that might have improved it would have been to give out cowboy hats etc (or is that too cheesy?) The barbeque was very good, loads of food and perfectly cooked. As it is an evening activity, they maybe could consider giving out a beer with the meal rather than just a soft drink? Campfire entertainment was very good with interesting cowboy tale and songs. More marshmallows would have been nice! Once again, as with most Las Vegas excursions/trips you are expected to give gratuities so be careful as you could end up having to tip the wranglers, the cook, the entertainer and the coach driver! This can add quite a tidy sum onto the cost of an already fairly costly evening. I wish actually, they would just make the cost a bit higher and then share out the extra between the staff but Im afraid that is not the American way and we Brits will just have to get used to it! All in all a very enjoyable night and well worth doing to get away from the glitz and bright lights of Las Vegas.
