Tour guide was great. He gave us a lot of history on how Vegas came to be. I learned a lot about downtown Vegas and the hotels that I didn't know before. The tour included a walk to Container Park and we leanrned all about what is currently going on in Vegas today.
This was the highlight of our Vegas trip. That includes the Grand Canyon excursion. Kelly was phenomenal. Well worth the time and money. I would've paid twice the cost for this. I liked it so much, I included in my newspaper column.
Great tour and guide. A walking history of Vegas from the start to the present day. Useful info on current hotels and places to go/eat. Some discounts provided too. A must do for locals as well as tourists. A great use of two of our hours in Vegas. Quite a long walk from the strip to it.
We enjoyed our tour with Kelly immensely. He has honed his presentation to perfection. At the same time, since we were the only ones on the tour that day, he tailored the emphasis to customize the experience and patiently answered all our questions. With articulate descriptions and fluid transitions, he brought all the interesting facts and anecdotes to life. Binder photos, held up to the current scene as we went, made it easy for us to compare and contrast as we followed along. You can't get that kind of immediacy from guide books. As we moved into the East Fremont district he brought us up to date on recent trends and changes, linking history, giving restaurant and museum tips, and pointing out specific places along the way. All so useful and absolutely fascinating, Kelly's tour was a real highlight of our trip. Please treasure this guy he's the best!
This is an outstanding walking tour and Kelly does a great job! The story of Las Vegas' development and growth is fascinating. If you're interested in history, don't miss this tour.
The tour was amazing. Kelly is a great tour guide. Clearly he loves the old Vegas and his knowledge of the area was obvious. I've been to Fremont Street before but having Kelly as our guide really made it a whole new experience. We came back the day after the tour and were able to revisit many of the places and take advantage of some of the quirky and fun things we learned about on the tour.
I would HIGHLY recommend this tour.
Kelly was fantastic. My husband and I were the only ones on the tour which made us feel like VIPs. We have always enjoyed staying downtown but never knew the inside scoop or it's history and now we have gained much more knowledge thanks to this tour. There is still much to explore, taste, and see, during our next visit. The strip is overrated, come and explore downtown, there is so much going on!
So glad we did this first, the strip leaves me cold, but Downtown was awesome. we got a lot of great info, and suggestions on what else to see/ do downtown, and actually went back when we had free time later in our trip.
This was a great tour. The tour guide was extremely friendly and so knowledgeable about the area that it made the time fly by. He did what he could to keep us in the shade and from burning up in the heat! I would highly recommend this tour to anyone coming to Las Vegas. The downtown area has so much history and charm, and to learn about all of the transformations still happening is absolutely amazing.
Great little tour that tell you from the beginning of how Vegas was founded to the new revitalization of Fremont Street. He tells you the story of all the signage, hotels, and restaurants, It takes you from rail barons to mobsters to successful business owner trying to bring downtown back to the hidden gem of Vegas. Would highly recommend. Our next visit, we will stay downtown, instead of the strip.
Our guide was very knowledgeable and shared some very interesting stories about downtown. Especially liked the container park.
We had a great time. Kelley was very nice. Had a lot of facts and photos
Very informative our guide was friendly and knowledgeable. I would recommend this to anyone who would like to know about the history of Las Vegas.
We would highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to know more about downtown Las Vegas. The guide was friendly and knowledgeable and answered any questions that we had. All in all an excellent afternoon.
This tour was outstanding. Kelly was personable and his knowledge and enthusiasm for Fremont St, East Fremont St and the Container Park was fantastic. I can't rate this tour highly enough and i kind of wish i were staying near/on Fremont to be able to enjoy his many restaurant and shop recommendations. I share his wish that the origins of Las Vegas were more highly valued and honoured as it is a really great story of the beginning of Vegas but the re-invention of Fremont St and especially East Fremont St was also very interesting. I can't wait to go back and enjoy his recommendations!!
The most fabulous 2 hours you will spend in Las Vegas. A true history of how it all began. Kelly was super knowledgeable and helpful in finding places in downtown LV for staying, eating and other fun stuff.
This tour was amazing! We would have never seen the Container Park or the other fun destination stops outside of Fremont St. without this tour. Kelly was a wonderful guide. He was incredibly knowledgeable and earnestly wanted to make this the best tour he could for my family. He answered every question and let us spend as much or as little time per site as we needed. Thank you for such a memorable tour! The pictures certainly added and helped to bring the history to life.
Well organised and v knowledgeable guide... Will recommend to friends who go to Vegas
Our tour guide Kelly was so informative and welcoming. We found the entire experience to relaxed and fun the whole time. We learned a lot about Old Vegas and the characters who built Las Vegas. You need to do this tour!
I really enjoyed the Downtown and Fremont Street History Walking Tour. The guide was excellent and very informative. He shows you a lot of great photos of Old Vegas and knows the history of every building/casino Downtown. I highly recommend this tour!
This tour was incredible informative and gave us a new, refreshed perspective of the Fremont district. Kelly was very knowledgeable and encouraged us to ask questions. It was helpful that he provided old pics and anecdotes along the way.Great way to spend a couple of hours.
very nice guide with lots of pictures. Interesting stories and time flew by. No walking shoes required since we only did 1 mile in 2 hours.
