Full description

Dig into Las Vegas' past or present on this downtown walking tour of the city. Follow your guide around Fremont Street, stop by a container park, see famous casinos along the Vegas strip, learn of infamous mobsters, and savor a local snack or drink.

Start your tour outside Downtown Container Park, a square of stacked shipping containers housing a variety of small businesses, plus a jaw-dropping 3-story playground. Witness the changing downtown scene as your guide points out their favorite spots to eat, drink, and shop.

Then, head out onto Fremont Street towards the bustling downtown area and see how Vegas maintains both the old and new. Along the way, notice numerous restored vintage signs symbolizing the city's past, something you should revisit once the sun goes down to see them lit up in all their grandeur. Move on to one of the oldest casino-hotels in Las Vegas which was home to one of the most notorious mob members of his time, Benjamin "Bugsy" Siegel. Learn how he was not just a mobster from the early 1900s, but a pivotal part of the development of Las Vegas.

You may already be familiar with fictionalized versions of Bugsy and his contemporaries from the film "The Godfather". If you're interested in stories about organized crime here and throughout the United States, there's plenty more where that came from.

Next, get ready for the real showstopper of the tour — the world's largest LED video screen showing trance-inducing displays both day and night. Underneath the kaleidoscopic canopy of the Fremont Street Experience, performers dance, sing, and entertain in ways you might not ever have imagined. It may be hard to tear yourself away from the captivating light show, but the tour continues along the main drag, passing by (and, if possible, popping inside) a few other significant casino-hotels. Some of these locales have been mob-connected, while others are famed for their food.

As you explore the downtown streets, get your guide's recommendations on the best bars and eateries to check out during your stay. Finally, treat yourself to a refreshing drink or snack in the heart of downtown Las Vegas, from where you can continue watching the Fremont Street Experience.
