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!

Long trip but worth the drive. Other stops to sights as well! Bus ride DVDs educational and fun even for youth.
Great trip, with a great view to Greate Canyon. It was worth all the hours in the bus. Nice driver :-)
Very educational! John provided an abundance of knowledge regarding local wildlife, vegetation and culture! Great hike! Would recommend to anyone wanting to experience this gorgeous natural wonder! Breathtaking views! Amazing petroglyphs! Just do it!!
The Driver from our Tour on 25.12.2017 (sorry i forgot his name ) was very friendly and funny, so it made our Holiday fun . Thank you
The things that made the Love Hikes afternoon in the Valley of Fire memorable was Chad, the guide. On his days off, he goes out alone in the site and seeks out interesting and challenging climbs, formations and vistas. This isn't a bus trip with a canned spiel. Small, intimate groups (in our case, it was just my wife and I), and challenging routes We took the "challenging" (middle of the three alternatives) and found it was exactly that. When I compare that trip to the bus trip to Red Rocks, which we did the following day, Chad and the time in Valley of Fire was not only interesting but memorable.
