Overview
Highlights
    What to Expect
    Meet your guide in downtown Las Vegas to begin your walking tour, during which you’ll hear your guide’s commentary via provided earphones. You won’t want to miss a word about this iconic area known as Glitter Gulch, famous for its old neon signs, classic Vegas casinos and easy-going party atmosphere.

    Start the former site of the Union Pacific station, which dates back to Vegas’ humble beginnings. Walk along Fremont Street and hear stories about its many transformations, from the peak of the casino years to a downturn in popularity to its revitalization into one of Sin City’s current hotspots once again. See sights like Vegas Vic, watch people zoom by on the 100-foot-high (30-meter) Slotzilla zipline, listen to live music and be wowed by the 4-block-long LED video screen made up of 12.5 million lights.

    Check out only-in-Vegas attractions like a swimming pool with a shark tank in the middle, the ‘world’s largest golden nugget,’ a display of $1 million in cash and a 40-foot-tall (12-meter) fire-breathing praying mantis. Then make your way to Fremont East, a new district of restaurants, shops and bars that some call a Vegas version of Greenwich Village. This is where you’ll find locals and in-the-know visitors hanging out until the early morning hours. Your tour ends at the Downtown Container Park, an open-air shopping and dining plaza partially made out of recycled shipping containers. From here, you are free to continue your night out in Vegas on your own.

    Total walking distance is less than 1 mile (1.6 km); throughout the tour, you may purchase food and beverages at bars and restaurants you pass, but please note that your guide will not wait for you if you are stuck in long lines.

    This was such an enjoyable tour that the only thing we were disappointed about was not doing it sooner! There is so much now to see in Downtown Las Vegas that you end up wondering why you bother staying on the Strip. As our excellent guide Kelly said, the Strip spends $10m a
