Downtown's Hidden Gems - We weren't sure what to expect when we signed up the night before the tour; we had hoped to do a downtown food tour but it sold out. However, we... read more are SO glad we were on this tour with Kelly, who has such a passion for the history of downtown and all of its hidden gems. It was great to see old photos and compare with current buildings, and also walk through some of them. Definitely recommend to anyone who wants to explore beyond the Strip!

"A fantastic history of the 'old to new' Las Vegas!" - My wife & I booked this walking tour as we are very interested in the history of Las Vegas from its early beginning through the decades to the present day.... read more Many people associate 'Vegas' with 'the strip' - nothing further from the truth!! The 'City of Las Vegas' or as its known locally 'Down town' starts at the Stratosphere & runs much further North upto & past Freemont Street. We met our tour guide - Kelly at the Plaza Hotel on Main Street at the top of Freemont Street, our party of approx. 10 were then given earpieces attached by cable to a transmitter device so that we could hear Kelly speaking without him having to shout above the hustle & bustle of Down town Vegas! Kelly was extremely knowledgeable, attentive, & enthusiastic. There is so much to Las Vegas than you will ever know from there once being a train station behind the Plaza Hotel right down to the new Container Park in the Fremont East District. If you are into Vegas - not just for gambling then I can thoroughly recommend this walking tour - it lasts approximately 2 hours.

A highly informative tour! Visiting Vegas and not taking the time to enjoy the Downtown walking tour is like ordering a pizza and not getting any toppings - you're simply... read more missing out on the best parts! From the very first moment, the Small-Group Downtown walking tour was nothing short of an exhilarating venture into the vibrant origins of Sin City. Kelly, our incredibly knowledgeable and friendly guide, led us through the historic streets of downtown, intertwining present-day allure with stories of yesteryears that truly brought the glittering surroundings to life. The walking pace was leisurely, yet covered enough ground to keep things exciting, offering numerous photo opportunities at iconic landmarks. The neon lights of Fremont Street created a mesmerizing backdrop as we delved deep into the rich history and modern renaissance of downtown Vegas. Highlights included fascinating insights into legends such as the Goodmans, Steve Wynn, and Tony Hsieh. We saw many impromptu performances from street artists, and hidden gems (behind the facades) that one might overlook without the expert guidance of our tour leader. But what set this tour apart was the guide's undeniable passion for Las Vegas. Kelly managed to paint a vivid picture of the city's evolution from a humble railroad town to the entertainment capital of the world, all while pointing out the fine details that make downtown Vegas so special. From the relatively new 1995 canopy to historic architecture, every corner had a story to tell. Additionally, the tour included several stops at local eateries and shops, where we had the chance to note where in the future we could take in some gastronomic delights and pick up unique souvenirs. Not only did we explore the famous sights, but we also got a taste of the local culture, which was an absolute treat. In conclusion, whether you are a first-time visitor or a seasoned Vegas veteran, the Las Vegas Downtown walking tour is an immersive experience that offers a perfect blend of entertainment, history, and local flair. A dazzling stroll through the heart of Vegas that is not to be missed!
