How easy is it to get around Las Vegas without a car?
Not so easy; Las Vegas is a big city – we do everything big! That’s why renting a vehicle is such a great idea. You can go anywhere at any time, and enjoy all the city has to offer on your own schedule.
Ultimate Hoover Dam Tour from Las Vegas
One of the best sightseeing tours in Las Vegas is the Ultimate Hoover Dam Tour. Not only does the air-conditioned bus stop at various spots for photo ops (e.g., the infamous “Welcome to Las Vegas” sign), but tour-goers also get to actually walk inside and on top of the Hoover Dam. This tour also includes a free ticket to the LA Comedy Club at the Strat, lunch at a nearby restaurant, and a tour of the Government’s Visitor Center. The tour takes about six-and-a-half hours and costs $99 per person.
Las Vegas Tasting Food Tour
If you’re a foodie, one of the best tours in Las Vegas is the Las Vegas Tasting Food Tour. On this walking tour, a guide will explain pieces of Las Vegas culture, history, and – of course – food. Stops on this trip include popular upscale restaurants operated by famous chefs such as Gordon Ramsay and Giada De Laurentiis. The menu varies, but every course offered is delicious and memorable. While this tour is not completely private, it is small as there is only room for up to eight people and it costs $144 per person.
Big Bus Las Vegas Open Top Night Tour
There is just something special about taking a tour of a big city at night with all of the lights glistening and the streets still bustling with night owls out on the town. The Big Bus Las Vegas Open Top Night Tour is one of the best Las Vegas night tours, as it offers a 3-hour guided journey starting in the heart of the Las Vegas Strip. Atop the open-air bus, you can see the most famous lodging spots, restaurants, and casinos, and then you are dropped off at the Golden Nugget Hotel and Casino and given an hour to explore before the bus takes you back to the starting point. This tour starts at $50 per person.
Las Vegas Strip Limo Tour
If you’re looking for a ritzy, private tour of the Las Vegas Strip, why not take a ride in a limousine and enjoy a private Las Vegas Tour? The Las Vegas Strip Limo Tour can accommodate up to 7 people and is even better if you are celebrating something such as a birthday or wedding, as the host company will provide goodies like special sashes and accessories plus offers a professional photographer who can join for the ride. Perhaps best of all, this limo tour offers unlimited champagne (and soda/water) and also provides admission to the VIP Foundation Room cocktail lounge. Prices start at $450 per group.
Wild West Ghost Town and Hoover Tour from Las Vegas
Visitors who want a break from the hustle and bustle of Sin City may appreciate another one of the best sightseeing tours in the region, which is the Wild West Ghost Town and Hoover Tour from Las Vegas. Hosted by Bindlestiff Tours, this private tour takes guests on an excellent excursion, visiting the Hoover Dam, Oatman Ghost Town, El Dorado Canyon, Chloride Ghost Town, and Historic Route 66. Lunch is provided, and the day tour guide provides in-depth information about the Las Vegas area the entire way, making this one of the best day tours from Las Vegas. Seats are $239 per person and the tour runs every Saturday.
Segway Tours Las Vegas
Most of us have heard of Segway tours, but people don’t know how exciting they are until they actually try one! One of the top day tours in Las Vegas is the Segway Las Vegas tour, which is available in 1-hour or 2-hour increments. Two-hour tours get more information and additional destinations with opportunities to stop and take photos, but either option gets tour-goers plenty of Las Vegas knowledge while they cruise along on the famous roads of Las Vegas. Everyone must be at least twelve years old and prices are $89 for one-hour tours and $129 for two-hour tours.
“Past and Present Glory” Exploration Game
Perhaps one of the most unique tours in Las Vegas is the “Past and Present Glory” Exploration Game. The game is app-based, meaning you do not have to carry around a map like many other exploration games require. The app gives you clues that lead you to places such as Caesars Palace and the Bellagio Fountains while also providing you with the intriguing history of each place as you arrive. Similar to an escape room, this exploration game requires a bit of puzzle solving and question answering that leads to the next landmark. Overall, if you’re looking for an inexpensive yet super fun tour, this one costs less than $8.
