Owner description: 1 Day Hop on, hop off Strip and Downtown Tours: Experience breath-taking views of the Las Vegas Strip & Downtown from atop of our London style double decker bus! Entertaining and informative guides on every bus share stories that have made Las Vegas one of the most visited vacation destinations in the world.

Panoramic Night Tour: The Panoramic Night Tour begins from Circus Circus at 7:00pm, LINQ Promenade High Roller Bus Loading Zone 7:15pm and from the Excalibur at 7:30 pm. As dusk falls, the city comes to life illuminated by the dazzling neon lights Las Vegas is famous for.

If your time is limited in Vegas this is a great way to see the sights and get an overview of bathe city. All the guides on the various buses we travelled on were good each with their own spin on the city.

If I am doing a short city break, I like to do a hop on- hop off tour on my first day to orientate myself before I explore the next couple of days on my own. This has stood me in good stead in the past, however I was disappointed with the Vegas tour. There are very few stops, and very little information given. This, of course, varied from guide to guide. One chap was excellent in imparting historical Information of the city. Two others I had were awful, one chap appeared so bored, I got off on one stop just to wait another half an hour to get the next bus so I wouldn't need to continue listening to him. So I can only give an average rating.

Great way to get an overview of what Las Vegas has to offer. If you've never been to Las Vegas, make sure you take this tour early on in your visit! Funny (and sometimes corny, but who cares?), very informative guides. Bought tickets for 5 adults through Groupon.com, so the price per ticket was less than $20 for both the Strip and Downtown tours--that's a deal that cannot be beat! Rode on top deck under a shaded canopy, so it was a very comfortable ride. Tour guide offers additional attraction tickets at greatly reduced rates, which we took advantage of.

Spent two days doing this. Great way to get around and see most of Las Vegas. Hear entertaining stories and meet new people. There's a chance to stop at big attractions and get off and then re-join the bus later on. Well worth the money. Be sure and sit in the shade though on the top deck and drink plenty of water. Also tip the tour guides as they really do appreciate it and they are really nice gals n guys :)

If you're looking for the best way to see Las Vegas, then make sure you hop-on board Big Bus Las Vegas! They have two routes with over 20 stops, a Red (Strip) Route and a Blue (Downtown) Route and over twenty stops. The Red route covers the entire Las Vegas Strip and takes about an hour and a half for the Strip portion of the tour. The Blue route covers Downtown Las Vegas, which is the Historic side of Las Vegas where it all started in the early 1900's. The Downtown route takes about an hour and fifteen minutes. Both the Red and Blue route are included in your day tour ticket. Keep in mind every tour starts and stops at Circus Circus. The complete tour takes about three hours in total, depending on traffic. If you're looking to see the bright lights of Vegas, make sure you check out their Night Tour that leaves from Circus Circus at 7pm or the Excalibur at 7:30pm. It's a great way to see Las Vegas after the sun goes down. Also, on the Night Tour they take you Downtown to the Golden Nugget and they drop you off for one hours time so you can experience the Fremont Street Experience. While on tour, your tour guide will give you the inside scoop on Las Vegas and the scenery around you. Definitely a tour not to be missed!!
