What people are saying about Las Vegas

Wish we could have spent more time at the different places we stopped at. Everything seemed rushed, an we were on a time limit of 25 minutes each stop. If felt like we were on a elementary field trip. This was a great tour don't get me wrong. But being out for for over half the day from 7 to 3pm and all you give for food was a a snack. Not a snack with a sandwich or something but peanuts, cereal bar, and some pretzels. Everyone was hungry and ready to get back......

Great tour, very worth it, beautiful places! Robert was our amazing tour guide, I would highly recommend you ask for him. He offered to take a bunch of our pictures, explained everything on our way and overall is just a great dude. I'm totally recommending this tour to my friends and taking it next time i'm in vegas.
