Very interesting and informative tour. - Richard was a very likable tour guide, one of the best I have had any place. I take walking tours everywhere I travel, stateside or overseas. He had us captivated by his stories and knowledge of Las Vegas. We were sorry we didn't include our husbands!! We hope to contact him to see him next January in Las Vegas.

Great tour! - I booked this tour for my mother and daughter, who were feeling very overwhelmed by the city and with where to start and what to see. The tour was incredibly helpful and enjoyable for them, and the guide was knowledgeable, kind, and enthusiastic.

Our history stroll with Richard - Richard gave us splendid, brilliant tour of the Las Vegas strip. We learned more about the city in a few hours than I learned in all my previous trips to Vegas combined. Richard, with his boundless energy and good cheer, offered so much history about the place and the people of Las Vegas. The price was right, too. An all-around terrific experience for me and my wife.

The Strip Then & Now - Richard knows all the details of how the Strip got to be what it is today. My husband and I were the whole group, so we enjoyed asking all sorts of questions. Visiting many of the hotels/casinos (Bellagio, Mirage, Caesars Palace, for example), and strolling through the evolution of the shopping malls along the way, Richard gave us a wonderful glimpse into “then and now” Las Vegas and the changes along the way, as well as those still coming. We chose the pace, so it was a comfortable, informative couple of hours. Richard’s background as a history teacher helped keep the stories clear and interesting. We recommend highly.
