Bus Tours and Las Vegas Night Tours: Stress-free Sightseeing

How it works.  On your bus tour, a special open-top bus takes you throughout the city, making stops along the way. During a stop, you can hop off to check things out, and then hop back on a later bus to continue your adventure.

Big Bus Las Vegas TourTours are narrated by experienced guides who can provide fun facts, history, and enlightening commentary on all the sights.

Day Tours.  The Sightseeing Tour takes you all over Vegas’s most famous landmarks, like the Las Vegas sign, Fremont Street, and big-time hotels and casinos.  The Strip Route cruises along the most famous street in the city, giving you a front-row seat to all the excitement of a high roller playground.  The Downtown Route heads away from the Strip to the older part of the city, where you’ll see lots of sights like the Stratosphere and El Cortez.
