Guys: I know I haven't been here in a long time, but, I had to log in to RAVE about the awesome time I had doing a private tour with Amy @ McGhie's Blue Diamond Tours in Las Vegas.
This is going to sound like a total spam, unpaid commercial, and I'm sorry for that. This is unsolicited, unpaid, no discounts, God's honest truth - IT WAS AWESOME!
I was planning to be out here for business and decided I wanted to MTB one morning. I considered renting a bike and going it alone, but, when I searched using the ole' Googler, McGhie's Trip Advisor was the top result.
The positive reviews were overwhelming. I decided I had to book a private tour. It wasn't that much more than renting a bike! I sent an email on the plane ride from South Beach describing myself and what I was looking to do while in Vegas. Before I landed, Amy had already responded to my email and sent me a text! We got everything squared away for my tour @ 40k feet :-D
We exchanged several texts over the days leading up. She was awesome, helping me with not only my tour, but other local recommendations, etc. we decided to meet at 5:30 am (because the low was only 84).
She had a nice Trek Fuel EX waiting for me. We got a little paperwork out of the way and we were on our way!
Amy tailored the ride specifically for me. She kept me from blowing myself up on the climbs and flats and let me go flat out on the 8 mile downhill section (Called Viagra - HUGE boner thrill!)
She also went ahead and took pictures, reminded me to enjoy the scenery, listened to me brag about how amazing I am and was just a TON of FUN!

By the end of the ride, I felt like I had made a new buddy. We exchanged some jokes and hugs and I was off to get back to work (On a Saturday!)
She also recommended I hike at Red Rock Canyon and then drive all the way out to Boulder City to have dinner and wine at Milo's Cellar & Inn (where I am now - very cool place). Both were fantastic recommendations!
Overall, today is a day I'll remember for a long time (maybe forever?) Thank you Amy, Thank you McGhie's for hiring Amy. She made my day, and my trip, extra special!
