A Walk Through Old and Changing Las Vegas
Kenneth_R, Sept 2023
I gained a new appreciation for Downtown Las Vegas and the Fremont Street Experience after this tour. Our guide was extremely knowledgable about the area and how it developed and is changing. We saw things we would have missed on our own, like the largest gold nugget in the world, an amazing swimming pool next to a shark aquarium, the fire-breathing giant praying mantis at the Container Park, several of the famous neon signs, and much more. We also received a sheet of restaurant recommendations and discount coupons. I highly recommend this tour. Your understanding of Las Vegas won't be complete without it.
Great tour.
Roxanne_G, Sept 2023
Kelly did an outstanding job! We loved his tips and found the Munster slot machine. We would recommend this to friends. Great tour.
Very enjoyable
dawn_w, Sept 2023
Very enjoyable, the guide was really good, lots of good tips. We all learned a great deal.about the history of Las Vagas
Another side of Fremont!
Anastasiya_R, Aug 2023
Amazing guide with lots of tips, fun facts and just a wonderful approachable personality!! Highly recommend!! Kept us cool in shade in 100+ degree weather. Many thanks!
Great tour!
Crystal_C, Aug 2023
Great history tour, the temperature was ridiculously hot, but Kelly kept us in the shade or a/c as much as he possibly could! Also, be aware of the Vegas show girls that try to get you to take a picture with them. They got $75 out of my friends by telling them that we were taking care of one girl, & that they were to take care of the other. We have $5, I’m glad they didn’t get more from us. They told us that the casino they worked for took 80% of their tip $, Kelly said this was a lie & if you call a police officer over, you could have them arrested. We didn’t bother, but learn from our friend’s mistake!!
The Old Vegas
marie_c, Jul 2023
It was good to see another part of Vegas. Unfortunately, not much to do there. The guide was very knowledgeable and he was funny too.
Response from Host, Jul 2023
Hello Marie, so glad you found our guide knowledgeable as well as funny. I'm sorry you did not find downtown Las Vegas to your liking but appreciate you seemed to enjoy your guide. If you feel his tour was more than a 3-star performance I'm certain he would appreciate your reconsideration of the rating of his tour. All our best and thank you for joining us.
Best Walking Tour ever!

Excellent Overview
Micha_G, Jun 2023
Kelly was an excellent guide, sharing insights, history and tips about the neighborhood. We visited the most relevant spots and got to know how it all started more than a decade ago.
Interesting and fun
Monique_W, Jun 2023
Very interesting walk. Lots of information about the properties in Downtown La Vegas and their history, as well as the redevelopment of this part of the city.
Magnificent tour
Teri_A, Jun 2023
Absolutely magnificent tour. We learned so much about the history of Vegas. I recommend doing this at the beginning of your trip. He shows you a lot of places you may want to visit. We ended at the container park and ate at a new place called The Bucket List. It was also fantastic.
Fabulous tour!
shanrussyahoocom, Jun 2023
The tour guide did a fantastic job providing the history of Vegas and sharing photos of what the buildings looked like when they first went up. Super friendly and funny and very informative, the guide kept your attention and made you want to hear more. The area of the tour was beautiful and has so much to do.
Excellent Tour!
Susan_S, Jun 2023
Wow, where to begin! The 2 hour tour with Kelly was amazing. We learned so much about the history of old/original Las Vegas our heads are still spinning. I don't know where Kelly stored all that wonderful knowledge and information as he used no notes. When we were first given headsets I wondered why, but as the tour unfolded I got it. Lots of noise with music, gambling, and people having a great time. The tour was affordable and definitely money well spent. It was so good that my husband and I talked about doing it again if/when we come back to Las Vegas. I highly recommend!
Would recommend even for locals
Vivian_S, May 2023
Kelly was a great tour guide and had so much to share about downtown Las Vegas. The headsets worked great for the noisy area. My husband and I loved learning about the history of our hometown.
Vegas Revitalized!
Cathy_S, May 2023
We just Kelly - so knowledgeable, great sense of humor and personable! Loved the history and all the asides!
Great history tour of downtown
Lyndsey_C, Apr 2023
We did the tour as a group of six and loved it. The guide Kelly was great, he had a lot of passion for Downtown vegas and vegas in general. He gave a number if personal tips, and I left the tour wanting to stay downtown in future. We did the extra pawn shop add on and although I’d not seen the show, I loved the shop and bought some original artwork. We finished it off with a drink and food in Rick’s bar which was really nice.
How Vegas started tour…

Our host was right on time and got everyone ready with their headsets. The guide was very entertaining and informative. We were glad we made this the first tour of our trip. You will not only save money, but find some great places to dine. I highly recommend!
