    The driver is nice and knowledgeable. With his introductions, we have see a lot of interesting sites on the way to Carson and Virginia city. It was excited to see Mustangs walking pass you. We bought rings from a local jeweler designer. Also visited a portrait of lady with 250 silver coins. Our trip is filled with interesting scenes and historical stories. It is worthy for each penny. I recommend this trip for anyone especially family with school ago kids.
