Had the pleasure of riding Big Bus Tours today in Las Vegas. We first did The Strip tour which was really fun; easy way to see the many sights the strip has to offer without the hassle of walking or driving around. Our tour guide was really cool, informative and had a great personality. And when she told me she just started working for the company; I was amazed! Big applause for Jillian!

Later, we took The Downtown tour which is very different from The Strip tour - however, it offered an insight to the "real" Las Vegas plus many nice sights such as the pawn shop from Pawn Stars as well as a multitude of wedding chapels. Our tour guide, Brian aka Marc was F-U-N-N-Y! Perfect engagement with customers, great knowledge and still super professional. Jose was the driver on that tour, and he did a great job! Always good to appreciate the professional driver's capabilities to take us around town in a safe and smooth ride. Thumps up!

The busses were a little on the older side, but they were surprisingly clean. It's live tour guide, with speakers and it was not a problem hearing them at all.

Thank you so much Big Bus, Jillian and Brian for a great day!

My husband and I had limited time to play in Las Vegas. Although we have been to Vegas many times, we had never taken advantage of the double decker bus tours. It was definitely worth the price. We learned so much about the city, including the fact that the "Strip" is not really in Las Vegas. Our tour guide was Eric, and he kept us laughing the entire trip. The bus makes one stop at Fremont Street for an hour, but we hightailed it to the east end of Fremont so we could see the giant mechanical praying mantis that blows fire which is located at the Container Park. The one thing I would tell people is to wait to buy your tickets at the bus. We bought ours online from my phone but couldn't print out the vouchers and had to rebuy the tickets and get refunded from PayPal.

we did the day and night tour. Great way to see all the casinos without doing too much walking. Really enjoyed downtown stop at Freemont Street. The night time tour is awesome. All the neon signs all lit up is a must see for any first time tourist.

We booked this tour through our Virgin rep which actually meant we got to use our ticket for our entire stay. As this was our first visit to Vegas it was a really great way to see all the sights and to travel around. We hopped on/off so this helped us to get around on both the strip and downtown tours. Our favourite tour guide by far was Suzie - very knowledgeable and made our strip trip very interesting,and fun! our driver Terry was able to navigate some very tight spots and always seemed to slow down at the right time for those memorable photos.. We all cheered at Elvis who appeared at the welcome to Vegas sign. Great fun!
