This tour was fantastic. Our guide was very educated on the canyon history, flora and fauna and was very personable. Can't remember his name but he used to perform in the circus and at circus circus as a juggler. My wife and I enjoyed this tour very much!!
Would advise anyone to take the tour.
This tour was the perfect way to get introduced to the city. Guide was very good and they had it timed perfectly as you moved from one light show to the next.so you never had to wait to long. also liked that bus took us back to Circus Circus after tour which was right by our hotel
Absolutely a great deal for the money. We brought our daughter and her boyfriend who weren't old enough to gamble. So buying the 3 day power pass was a great way to make sure we did things that they we would enjoy! We stayed at Circus Circus and could use the power pass at the adventure dome for three days all day long!!!! We also did the Hoover Dam trip and they picked us up right at our hotel. I would definitely do the Power Pass again!!!! It was money well spent for everything that we did and purchasing our Power Pass on Viator.com saved us even more money. Viva Las Vegas!!!!!!

Doing what: Las Vegas Power Pass
What a great way to do the attractions in Vegas! Over the 24 hr period we tried to cram as much in as we could and still did not make full use of the pass, probably because my 12 year old daughter was difficult to pry away from the roller coasters at Circus Circus. The diversity of the attractions available on the pass makes it ideal for a family, certainly well worth the money!
This tour was very enjoyable. We did learn from the bus driver that we could have been picked up at Circus Circus which was our hotel rather than finding our own way to Ballys Hotel to join the tour.
We purchased this card mainly for the adventure dome at circus circus but it was no longer valid, felt a bit ripped off.
The power pass worked out well, the only thing I was disappointed in was that Circus Circus amusement park was down for refurbisment and we didn't get to go to it. Otherwise the pass was great, no trouble picking it up and would use it again.
worth the money if you keep busy using your card. just make sure you check the times of the attractions as when we went to circus circus adventure dome, it was closed and only open at the weekends.
I enjoyed the driver and tour guide. They were pleasant, fun and informative. I thought the tour of the Dam was too short, but maybe that was just me. I didn't really have time for photos and to tour the interpretive centre and gift shop. Lunch was excellent. It was partially my fault for changing my pickup location at the last moment (kind of a comedy of errors that lead to that, including a lack of internet access and my inability to get the phone number until my pickup time). Arrangements were made to get picked up at the Excalibur, end of the line, but I waited there for 20 minutes and it cost me almost $20 to rush there by taxi from Circus Circus - originally I was supposed to be picked up at Monte Carlo. Give I waited almost 20 minutes I bet the van driver was very close to Circus Circus so I was a bit miffed that they wouldn't pick me up there rather than me spending an extra $20. I would have given the tour an excellent customer service rating then, but do take some responsibility in how things transpired. I also didn't like the tipping talk, although pleasant enough, I hate how tour companies do not pay employees enough and almost force them to ask/beg for tips, not to mention the "recommended" amount. Because I had to pay $20 for a taxi to start my day, I didn't tip particularly well. I also think the trip to the chocolate (M and M) place is a bit of a waste of time. I went to the one on the strip and can buy fine chocolate almost anywhere. The glass window into how they make the stuff is not particularly informative.

I stayed here in 2010 and it was fantastic, its such a huge hotel with shopping area, adventure-dome and the obvious gambling haunts. there is in the middle of the ground flr casino every few hours (i think) a small circus show which is fantastic for the kiddies but get there in plenty of time to grab a decent spot as it does get busy.
The rooms are airy and spacious but if your in a tower room ask to be placed away from the air conditioning units outside (pretty ugly) when opening the curtains.
WARNING - * don't use their business centre it changes an extortionate amount to get on the internet.
I haven't added up to see if we actually saved money but the convenience of having a 1 stop card was worth it. It was a little bit of a pain to use at Circus Circus but other than that was good. Also, getting on the Hoover Dam Tour was a little inconvenient but in the end was fun.
Took almost 2 hours to get from aiport to Caesars. Route was Flamingo, Mirage ( next DOOR to Caesars), Rio, Circus circus, Strat, Downtown, then Caesars .... REALLY ? Driver was pleasant,excuses of big convention, short drivers changed route etc but next time will just pay the cab fare and go direct. Return trip was fine and they were on time with only 2 stops, still won't use again
We drove for two days to find out that one of the major attractions at Circus Circus was closed. It did not open until the day we left. We paid for 3 day Power Pass, only used two days. A lot on the Power Pass was not suitable for teenagers.
I was quite disappointed in the Las Vegas Power Pass. I had one for New York and it was great. Not only was the clerk at Planet Hollywood nasty to us, she messed up one of the passes in our group and made it a meal pass instead. What an inconvenience!!! Not only did Circus Circus give us a hard time, Planet Hollywood wanted us to take 20 dollar taxi back to them for their mistake. There have been several changes to the pass and attractions have come, gone or are closed, so carefully calculate before purchasing.
I've used this shuttle service in the past but unfortunately they seem to be gone and replace by an alternate shuttle company. I booked a trip to the Golden Nugget in Downtown Vegas which by the old shuttle company took about 20-30 minutes on a Saturday afternoon. On this trip it took OVER ONE AND ONE HALF HOURS. We stopped at multiple hotels that were NOT in Downtown (Circus Circus, Stratosphere, Riviera, etc, frankly I lost count) I will never use this service again. My time is worth a cabfare. This was a huge waste of
