Worth every penny

Viator review: Downtown Las Vegas Walking Tour - Day

Being English we knew very little about vegas and it’s history so was very interesting to do learn about it and do something that wasn’t typically touristy. Richard knew his stuff in detail. He even got down on his hands and knees in the casino to help look for my missing earring which was very much appreciated.

I'll put together an amazing experience crafted uniquely for you. Please send me a message. Let me know the dates you are traveling, the number of people in your party, and as much information as you can about what you would like to do.

Or, if you like any of my basic tours, you can immediately book from my tour pages.


As for me I am an ex-US Army guy. When I got out, sheer jealousy made me join my wife as a teacher - she was getting all those eight week summer vacations! Together we taught in Arizona and California and eight wonderful years in Ecuador.

When it was time to turn in my grade book I turned to leading tours. First I worked for an excellent tour company, learning to translate my knowledge of history and geology into small group centered fun trips and always giving my clients the most memorable experience. I struck out on my own three years ago and I strive to give each tour member on every tour a 5-Star experience. As I like to say, with me it is your tour. I am just along to make your tour super special.


I primarily do half day and full day tours with Las Vegas as my center of operations. My first love is small group walking tours of the Las Vegas Strip and the Downtown Fremont Street Experience. Close seconds are my intimate private tours to places like Red Rock Canyon, Valley of Fire and many of the other near-to-Vegas wonders, where I can give a quirky historian's side take on some of the great wonders of the world. I am a member in good standing with the Las Vegas Tourist Guide Guild.

Tours capped at 10 people. If you have a larger group, please let me know and I can arrange a completely private tour just for you.

Get to see the fun, the nooks and crannies the typical tourist never sees - and the stories most people never hear. Come away with how a tourist hot spot grew out of the hot and parched Mojave desert.
