Top Tours & Activities in Las Vegas
Call it Sin City if you want, but there's no denying that the Entertainment Capital of the World has a unique allure. After all, it took a lot more than seedy clichés to make Las Vegas one of the world's leading tourist destinations!
Vegas isn't a place to be enjoyed on the cheap! Set the tone for extravagance with Helicopter tours of the city's kitsch architecture and surrounding desert landscapes.
Death Valley, the hottest corner of North America, may be ominously named but its beauty is quite humbling, and it even blooms in spring. Just bring plenty of water!
The Las Vegas Strip boasts many of the world's largest hotels and casinos, all hosting their own dazzling shows. Take the scenic route by limo!
The choreographed fountains in front of the Bellagio hotel "dance" every 15 minutes from 8pm till midnight (and every 30 in the afternoons)!
The huge volcano in front of the Mirage hotel is another attraction in the same vein. It erupts on the hour from 8pm till midnight and, oddly, smells like pina coladas!
If gambling in the casinos isn't enough to set your pulse racing then how about zipping around the thrilling Motor Speedway in a luxury sports car?
You might be able to see the canyon's breathtaking red rock formations from your hotel window but getting up close to the Red Rock Canyon is a must for avid hikers, rock climbers, and mountain bikers!
The Hoover Dam Bypass is actually called the Mike O'Callaghan-Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge, but neither name really does justice to this spectacular feat of engineering!
Did somebody say feat of engineering? The Hoover Dam's art-deco design is impressive inside and out, although the exterior's breathtaking enormity is truly something to behold.
The tallest freestanding observation tower in the US offers the best views in Las Vegas, as well as a revolving restaurant and four terrifying amusement rides!
Unless you have a high tolerance for heat, plan your trip either side of summer. If you want to avoid the crowds then visit during the week.
From cabs and double-decker buses to helicopters and the Las Vegas monorail, the city has no shortage of ways to travel. Just remember that everything gravitates towards the Strip.
Women shouldn't have a problem but male dress codes differ for nightclubs so it's worth checking them online. Generally speaking though, a shirt and decent shoes go a long way.
You're on your own there! Good luck!

What People Are Saying About Las Vegas
Unbelievable! I can fully recommend this tour! best pilot,good service,friendly stuff
That's a good trip to know American sperit. Massive work done in recession time by their heart.
Fantastic experience, they were incredibly friendly and helpful throughout our entire experience and doing the tour of the site as well as the activity meant we really got our moneys worth. I would thoroughly recommend this.
We were only a small group and were lucky enough to get Joel Clarke as our guide. He is so passionate about the desert and its colourful history that he makes you see, feel and taste the desert. He talks a lot but the stories all very interesting, he was like the desert's philosopher. Death Valley is a must see, must experience, in our book. Only regret: I did not give him a big hug when saying goodbye, I was just too overwhelmed. Annemiek, travelling with Oscar
The views were amazing and John from Love Hikes couldn't have been more helpful and knowledgeable. He picked up on my fear of heights but was also really encouraging and paced the hike perfectly. We did the moderate hike and it was perfect. Definitely going to do this again and will ask for John again.
