Groups of up to 13 board a bus in Las Vegas every Saturday at 8 a.m. and head out first to Hoover Dam, to marvel at the engineering that keeps the Colorado River at bay and to see the tranquil man-made Lake Mead. Next, the small group heads to Chloride, Arizona. Once a booming mining town in the 1860s, the population has dwindled to about 250 people. Tourists get a chance to browse the shops and see the town’s sculptures on display before eating lunch.
Then the bus heads down Historic Route 66 to Oatman, Arizona, where just 150 people—and one town legend, known as Oatie the Ghost—make their home. Here, guests can see the Black Mountains and encounter wild burros that roam the town. On the way back to Las Vegas, the tour heads through the Mojave Desert, arriving back in Sin City at about 6 p.m. Groupon customers also receive $100 toward any three-day camping excursion.
Taking in the Grand Canyon’s depths, jetting down the Las Vegas Strip in a limousine, and visiting a tiny town in search of its resident poltergeist—guests of Bindlestiff Tours can have these experiences and more. The company’s expert guides create the wide array of southwestern tours themselves, tailoring the itineraries to their personal expertise and their insider knowledge of camera-shy cacti. Their carefully curated trips can last from a single day to three weeks, with longer trips stopping at far-flung landmarks such as Yosemite National Park, Las Vegas, and the Grand Canyon in a single week. Bindlestiff Tours also aims to protect the natural wonders it celebrates, encouraging tour groups to minimize their environmental impact as they travel by keeping to trails and recycling.
