Full description
Area 51 is a long kept secret that was confirmed in August 2013 by the US secret service CIA. This tour is an extreme trip because you are taken directly to the edge of the most rigorous and secret military installations, only employees come closer. Here is the real home of the so-called X-Files.

Your tour begins with a glimpse of the little-known terminal at McCarran Airport, Las Vegas, where Area51 staff fly daily to the Groomlake Base using unmarked aircraft. Then, begin the 250-kilometer journey through the Nevada desert. Your first stop is on the Extraterrestrial Highway for a photoshoot. Continue the journey to the world famous Little Ale'Inn. Here, you will have a lunch break and you have the opportunity to try an alien burger or buy souvenirs.

Make another photoshoot stop at the so-called Black Mailbox. This mailbox was known by legendary Bob Lazar and one of the two postal addresses is actually ALIEN. Some scenes in the Hollywood thriller Independence Day were shot here. Afterward, travel over Groom Lake Road, an unpaved sand road, directly to the border of the military restricted area. You will be observed by well-hidden cameras, motion detectors, and microphones. The road ends right at the world-famous warning sign of "Top Secret Military Facility, Keep Out, Use of Deadly Force Authorized".
