The open top bus tour is a must in any city but in Vegas it is even better because it covers such a large area. It is made even better because the buses have live guides and not recordings, means you get a different perspective even if you repeat part of the tour. The guides we had each time were very funny and informative. The additional night time tour was really colourful and fun with a stop off in old Vegas. Highly recommend this excursion if you go to Las Vegas.

Madame Tussauds wax museum was easily the best part of this package. If you’re going to do the gondola rides you might as well do it at sunset or at night because it’s definitely not worth the 30 dollars because it is very short. Especially if it’s 40 dollars for one of the pictures they take. I hear there’s an inside gondola that’s way better for 100 dollars. But for me and my crew, we definitely thought the wax museum was the best part of the experience for sure. !

Our guide Ely was very kind and caring. He offered us drinks and snacks at any time, his explanations were comprehensive and very interesting. He gave good tips and also took very nice photos of us. The helicopter flight was very impressive and a highlight.

We took our 12 and 14 year old grandkids on this exciting open deck bus tour of the strip. The tour guide was amazing, kept us entertained and engaged. Great photo opportunities. Plenty of time for exploring Fremont Street. Highly recommend.

Wonderful but why charged full for kids too when ticket prices are less for kids
