Far Exceeded my Expectations

Too much great information to share. It was fantastic! The guide was incredibly knowledgeable and passionate. He really had a ton of great information about the mob in Vegas, and I could have listened to him for another 2-3 hours.

While Adam was very knowledgeable about the mob scene in Vegas, all we did was drive around in a van. Not what we expected at all from the description listed. More than disappointing for the cost per person.

We thank you again for the wonderful review, Adam has been a Las Vegas tour guide for 15 years and knows Las Vegas history.

Ride with the Mob

A very enjoyable tour. Having a driver for the van and a guide is much better than some tours that double up driver/guide. The guide was in character of “wise guy” and provided a lot of history on how the mob moved into the Vegas casino business. There are a couple of opportunities to get off for closer looks at the sites. The stop at the Flamingo allowed the group to go into the interior gardens and see the tribute statue to Bugsy Siegel and the lovely pool areas. He used the movie “Casino” as a point of reference for many of the mob personalities, and it seemed that the movie was more of the tour focus than the local sites. Overall it was an interesting 2 hours and we saw sites we would have otherwise missed.

Our host, Bobby, was great. He had some interesting information that he shared and told some great stories. I had a higher expectation about what we would see. We could have done the tour over the pizza dinner rather than drive around Vegas and see parking lots and old bank buildings.

I learned a lot about the individuals connected to the Mob that built Vegas and some of the debunked stories I had heard. The tour guide was fun and very informative (being from Brooklyn he was even more informative about mob activities and people.

Bobby our guide was very good and highly knowledgeable. However, the 'pizza dinner' afterwards amounted to basically a cheap frozen gas station pizza which arrived at our table half-burnt and very poorly cut. We should have went to a good NY style pizza place, I would have paid 10 more for the tour for a good pizza to end the tour. Skip the pie!
