Amazing for first timers to Vegas
michelle_c, Feb 2023
This was such a great tour, didn’t know what to expect but the tour guide made the tour! He made sure everyone was ok along the way and that we all got all the photos we wanted, and took everyone’s questions. Highly recommend this for first time visitors to Vegas and such a good way to start my trip. You will walk from one end of Fremont to container park area but it’s at the pace of everyone in the group so for those who don’t do walking really you will be fine! Again highly recommend this tour 10/10 from me.
Worth every penny

This tour was well structured and told the history of this remarkable city as we walked through the golden years of the past. Our guide Kelly was passionate about his beloved Downtown Las Vegas and very knowledgeable. This is the perfect tour to relive and understand how this wonder in the desert began. Next time we will definitely join Kelly for the night tour of this fascinating area.

Great Downtown Walking Tour
Ralph_W, Nov 2022
Great tour. Lots of great information regarding downtown LV delivered by tour guide Kelly. Highly recommend this tour.
Great tour for people who are First time to Las Vegas
Paula_O, Nov 2022
I found the tour very informative Kevin was awesome!! His passion for the "old Las Vegas and conserving the history of the downtown.freemont area definitely showed. The only thing i would have a negative comment about was the fact that there were smokers/vapors in the group and being higly sensitive to that took away some from the enjoyment of the tour for me. The highlight was container park.
More to Vegas than the strip!
LaShawn_D, Nov 2022
The tour guide was very knowledgeable and provided great insight to the downtown area. We learned so much and enjoyed the music, restaurants and shops after the tour ended.
Great time to learn the "then and now" of Vegas
Karen_W, Oct 2022
It was a wonderful tour! I loved our guide. He brought the old stories of Vegas to life in color for me. I went with my sister who has travelled there several times. She also enjoyed it and learned even more than she ready knew. Would highly recommend to any adult.
Great Walking Tour, Lots of Interesting History and Current Useful Info
Eileen_L, Oct 2022
Late October is perfect walking weather and the streets and sidewalks are well maintained … I had no trouble maneuvering my 93 year old mom in her wheelchair …headsets were provided to each person on the tour so No trouble hearing the guide. Tour guide Kelly was very knowledgeable and carried a notebook of large “before” photos to give a then-and-now perspective. I’d been to Vegas many times but never Fremont Street. It was definitely worth the trip…a lot more there within easy access than on the Strip, but within a few miles of the Strip when you are inclined to go. The tour was worth the ticket price, and it’s perfect for people with mobility issues (although my mom was the only one in our group of about 15 in a wheelchair).
Great Tour
