Interesting walking tour
Julia_P, Apr 2024
The walking tour guide was very interesting and passionate about the history of Las Vegas. I would definitely recommend this tour. We learned so many historical facts that we might never have known.
Exceptional Tour… Really!!!
Jim_D, Apr 2024
Best tour my wife and I have had in a number of years. Guide is exceptionally knowledgeable and presents very well. Subject matter is not widely known but incredibly interesting. This is the “REST OF THE STORY" of the birth pangs and development of an iconic American city.
Highly recommend
Abigail_H, Mar 2024
Our guide Kelly was very informative, respectful, engaging, and knowledgeable of the historic downtown Las Vegas. We booked this tour on our first day in town. Kelly taught us so much about Las Vegas that we would have never known otherwise. It really made us appreciate certain things for the rest of our trip. And I enjoyed the ear pieces that we got to wear so that everyone could hear no matter how close they were to Kelly.
Interesting walk round the sights of old Las Vegas.
Carole_W, Mar 2024
Our guide was hospitable, inclusive as well as being passionate and knowledgeable about the area, it's inception and history. Who knew there are 155,000 hotel rooms in Vegas or that the Golden Nugget has a shark tank in the pool area with a water slide running through it. The tour meets at The Plaza Hotel and Casino, which has a crazy automated horseracing games inside - definitely worth a look before the tour starts. On the negative side, Fremont street, which has been much improved over the last few years, is still a bit seedy. My clothes smelled so badly of weed when I got back to the hotel, I had to get changed and there are a lot of homeless people. It's not a place I'd rush back to.
Kenneth_B, Mar 2024
Our guide was Kelly. He was very knowledgeable and had great pictures of how things looked compared to how they look now. He kept track of all of us and made sure we could all hear him. It was a wonderful tour.
Interesting to learn...
Karen_W, Mar 2024
Interesting to learn about the history of the start of Fremont Street. The historical photos enhanced the experience.
Take this tour!!
Valerie_G, Feb 2024
Kelly was so entertaining and gave us such great insight, stories and history of the original Las Vegas. We loved the experience; it way surpassed our expectations. Well worth the cost and we’re so glad we took this tour. If you come to Vegas, take this tour!
Do it!

Our guide, Kelly, was passionate about Las Vegas and its history. He was lively and lots of fun, too. Best way to spend a few hours and learn about and see the sights.
A glimpse into past and present downtown Vegas

My mom and I loved every minute of this tour. Our guide Kelly was extremely knowledgeable, interesting and funny. We learned so much about the present and past of downtown Vegas. Highly recommend!
Great tour of Old Vegas!
Larry_B, Dec 2023
Great tour! Lots of fun and very informative! You will learn a lot about old Vegas. Recommend seeing it first when you get to the Fremont district. Follow up with a visit to the Mob Museum!
Travis_L, Dec 2023
Kelly was so informative and well spoken. I now feel much more educated about the dt area, and I have tons of great stories to bring back home. Well worth it.
Very enjoyable walking tour
Karolyn_W, Dec 2023
Great tour with an informative and engaging host. We both learnt a lot about the history of LV and places we didn’t know existed! I’d definitely recommend the tour for visitors new and old!
A Must Do Tour
Beverly_M, Nov 2023
Kelly is an amazing tour guide. He shared an abundance of information and added the perfect amount of humor. His calm personality and pleasant voice were the icing on the cake, making for a fabulous tour.
Outstanding tour - stay in Old Vegas when you come!
Ken_C, Nov 2023
Kelly did a fantastic job of encompassing the whole experience! He was well prepared, provided individual earpieces so we could hear him talk, and answered all our questions at the end. This tour was so interesting, we have decided to stay in old Las Vegas on our next trip there!
Kelly- Outstanding Guide
Guadalupe_R, Nov 2023
Our guide Kelly did an incredible job. He cared about our safety. He was patient, very informative including historical and fun facts. Highly recommend Kelly as a guide!
Fremont Street a must see
David_L, Nov 2023
Kelley our guide was fantastic. He effectively explained the history of downtown LV up to the recent renovations. It was encouraging to hear about and see the successful come back of a famous city downtown.
Highly Recommended
Janelle_B, Oct 2023
This was the best walking tour I have been on to date. Learned a lot of interesting history about the Freemont area of Las Vegas. The guide was attentive to our son, very entertaining and knowledgeable and offered a tip and discount sheet at the end of the tour, which was wonderful. I also appreciated the flexibility offered regarding the Pawn Stars add-on.
Excellent tour that will shape how you experience Vegas
Brian_B, Oct 2023
This was an outstanding tour of the past and the present of downtown Vegas. Like many visitors, i was staying on and had spent most of my visit on the Strip. If i hadn't booked this tour I'd have totally missed out on the excitement and energy that is the revitalized Freemont Street. Kelly is an encyclopedia of knowledge as he weaves a narrative of a Vegas constantly reinventing itself from a casino on a train stop to the glitz of today. It is also a great time of day to be able to fit in before any evening shows you might have planned. I would absolutely recommend this tour, and if you can put it early in your trip it may help shape where you dine (thanks for the tips) and how you enjoy the rest of your vegas stay.
Great tour
Carla_C, Oct 2023
Loved learning about the history of Fremont street. Guide was very knowledgeable and the tips sheet given out at the end of the tour was a nice touch. Would recommend.
I’ll never go again!
Meghan_D, Oct 2023
This tour is not a good tour if you wear hearing aids do not go! You must where a hearing piece around your ear or you do not hear a word!!!!!!!! My team found it extremely boring as well. You look T pick tires in a binder of old Vegas not much else.
