WATCH THE OLD WEST COME TO LIFE The Old West comes to life in Eldorado Canyon, home to the famed Techatticup Mine. Envision the back-breaking work done by prospectors over a century ago as they chased gold veins deep into this rugged mountainside. All in the comfort of a custom 4x4. On the short journey to this rustic site, you'll enjoy spectacular scenery: fields of teddy bear cholla, rare geologic formations, and an excellent photo opportunity down near the banks of Lake Mojave, the blue jewel of this isolated desert terrain. On your professionally guided tour of the mine you'll envision the back-breaking work done by prospectors over a century ago as they chased gold veins deep into this rugged mountainside, and hear tales of yesteryear's gunfights and lawlessness that were the rule in this frontier territory.

Very good service, relatively expensive

Pink-Jeep looks great, unfortunately hardly driven off-road (only about 500m to the mine); personal pick-up at the hotel was friendly and reliable; Interesting to see guided tour through old silver mine even without knowledge of English - understanding would be better; Would be cheaper to do with a rental car.
