Awesome tour and guide!
Jane_C, Feb 2023
We both really enjoyed the history of the Golden Nugget casino and Learning about the significance of Block 16. Our guide Richard was very knowledgeable, entertaining and kind.
A must do!
Tracy_L, Feb 2023
Richard’s tour was great! He really enjoys Old Vegas and is excited to tell you all about it . He took us around downtown , telling us the history as well as taking us into the casinos and showing us some astonishing things! He introduced us to so many things in Vegas we hadn’t known before. So much so that it made us wish we stayed longer to do more . Definitely made us really appreciate Old Vegas and everything it has to offer. And during the tour we even found the hotel we want to stay at when we come back . Highly recommend this tour to get the most out of your trip.

Thank you for the kind words. I loved sharing my city with you!
The real Las Vegas

With our hotel located on the strip, Richard gave us the historical context that our family needed to make our 8-day Las Vegas trip complete. The walking tour of downtown as conducted by Richard was full of foundational and trivial information aside from being a lot of fun!
Great tour!

Richard was excellent. Lots of little details about the history of Las Vegas, especially the downtown area. Tidbits about well known Las Vegas mob personalities and how downtown and the Strip evolved in a different ways. Highlights and secrets of some of the iconic downtown hotels. Enjoyable!!
A+ and Thumbs Up

Downtown Las Vegas is an experience you must have while visiting Sin City. We got the scoop on the local community and Richard's historical knowledge and story telling skills brought Old Las Vegas to life, I felt like I was right there when they built the first casinos.
Interesting historical tour of Downtown Vegas and the Fremont Experience

Our guide, Richard, is an expert in the history of Las Vegas so he made the experience very interesting and could answer any question. He was also extremely considerate in accommodating our requests.
Just book it, you won’t regret it!

The most informative tour I’ve ever been on! Wish I had done this on my first day in Vegas. Saw everything downtown Vegas has to offer. Just book it, you won’t regret it!
Definitely recommend

Richard was everything I'd hoped for in a tour guide! We appreciated being educated and entertained at the same time!
Worth the money.. Definitely

My guide was very friendly and most of all informative. His knowledge was second to none but most definitely not boring!
So Very Interesting!

Glad we day this day 1 of our trip!
ANDREA_L, Feb 2022
Richard was an incredible story teller with a deep knowledge of the history of Vegas. The walking wasn't tiring as if walking for 2 hours and we felt very safe the whole tour. Glad we did this at the beginning of our time in Vegas & would recommend to anyone curious about history.
It was great
Theresa_D, Feb 2022
The whole thing was great. There is so much stuff to do downtown. So much history to learn. More people need to go downtown to Freemont street
A must do in Vegas!

Richard was a very knowledgable and friendly guide. The tour was at a good pace and took in lots of the sights around Fremont street.
Great way to start your visit
Sue_C, Dec 2021
This was a great way to start our trip to Vegas. We love to learn the history of a place when we visit. Richard knows the history and his happy to share that with his guests. I enjoyed my time on Fremont street much more since taking this tour. Check it out!
Awesome guide !!...

Awesome guide !! So interesting and informative Loved every bit of it ! Richard was amazing One of our best tours ever We didn’t want it to end
Katherine_S, Oct 2021
Just ok…. Consider exploring Fremont street on your own unless you’re a major history buff. Definitely a neat place but mob history and personal experiences of the tour guide weren’t of interest to me.
Response from Host, Oct 2021
So sorry your experience wasn't the best. As I state at the start of every tour "I can do an eight hour walking tour down here. Just let me know what you are interested in and I'll be happy to adjust it for you."
Fantastic walking tour with Richard - so much history explained
Jo_P, Oct 2021
Great history of Las Vegas. Richard was great. Even continued with the tour, with just me. Which I really appreciated. As we walked around Richard explained the history of all of the casinos / hotels and how Vegas came to be which was really fascinating. Highly recommend this tour.
Great tour!
Jon_R, Sept 2021

Good tour long night

Our tour guide Richard was very nice and knowledgeable. Just think it could have been a little shorter. Some of the areas we stopped were a little scary with street people.
