About Las Vegas Walking Tours
Las Vegas is one of the most electric, energized cities in the world but there’s also so much more to Sin City than meets the eye.
At Las Vegas Walking Tours, we know that many travelers want to experience a destination on a more intimate, local, level and get to know a location ‘from the inside’. Learn how things began, what makes the city tick and where the ‘must go, must see’ places are. If this is you, than you have come to the right place.
Our tours are limited to small groups to help ensure a more personal experience with your guide. You will also be outfitted with a wireless earpiece and volume control to ensure every spoken word is heard.
So, for those of you who come to Las Vegas and want to do more than just walk ‘the strip’, come spend a couple hours with us. We’re sure you’ll have a wonderful time learning about, and experiencing a Las Vegas you didn’t know existed.
The best price, period.
It starts with cost. Let’s face it, you want the best tour experience but you don’t want to pay through the nose for it. We’ve got you covered!
Cheap in cost, but not in service.
Everything we do is built around a passion, entertainment and value. It is Las Vegas after all. Our bread and butter is being really good at what we do, without also costing more than the competition.
So spread the word…
Affordability and quality don’t have to be at odds. It didn’t take us long to figure out that when you put the two together, you get a very happy traveler. If you like what we do, tell your friends and family, and let us know as well: write us at [email protected]
