Explore Las Vegas as an outdoor museum of American popular culture on a spirited 90 minute walking tour through the historic Casino District and ending in a trending neighborhood of famous murals, cozy restaurants & cool bars. With a maximum of six guests, the tour is a private-like experience hosted by a personal guide who was formerly the Cultural Planner for the City of Las Vegas. You'll see where the town began as a railroad stop in the desert, hear about the Mob's legacy, walk through Glitter Gulch and its spectacular neon, pause at the old red light district, bump into some zany street buskers, salute the iconic neon cowboy Vegas Vic, and check out the new Circa Resort Casino that's changing Downtown. Most of all, we'll be dazzled by the soaring digital canopy that stretches 4 blocks in the sky. The tour ends in Fremont East, a new arts entrepreneur district, with a stop by the famed Container Park for a complimentary cocktail/beverage and a toast to travel and to Las Vegas.
