Richard is an amazing tour guide. Two full hours of the history and interesting facts of Downtown Las Vegas and the Arts District. I would highly recommend a tour with him. He is very knowledgeable, personable and humorous.


This was a delightful daytime walking tour of downtown Las Vegas due to our exceptional tour guide, Richard Evans. We learned so much about the development of Las Vegas. the history of the casinos and so many fun facts that were all new to us. Richard is former teacher, now an amazing tour guide who excels in sharing his wealth of information in a fun and fascinating way. We loved every minute!


Old Vegas is somewhere everyone should tour at least once. Although the FACTUAL historic information was great, the random not related commentary from our tour guide, yielded a much longer tour than necessary. We stood outside the El Cortez for at least 20 minutes in the scorching listening to unnecessary ramblings. Additionally, the tour guide was not respectful of personal space. For those reading this review, I will say that the tour guide that received great reviews (Richard) was not the one that provided our tour.


Richard was fantastic! He showed me so many details about the Fremont Street area that I would never have guessed. He was super knowledgeable, friendly and created a fun experience that I will share about with others.


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


The tour was fantastic with Richard Evans providing intriguing historical details every step of the way! We thoroughly enjoyed this tour and, as one of the highlights of our trip, highly recommend this excursion!


We all had a great time learning about Las Vegas history from Richard. His passion for history really brought life to downtown Las Vegas for us.


This was a great tour😊 He was very personable, informative and knowledgeable. Would recommend this tour for anyone who wants to know the history of Vegas.


Great tour. The guide was very knowledgeable and informative about the area. I would recommend this tour to others.


Increíble experiencia, nos transportamos totalmente en el recorrido a "Las Vegas Antigua". Richard es excelente guía, profesional, preparado, prolijo en historia y conocimientos sobre los orígenes de las Vegas. Tanto mi novio como yo quedamos inmersos en todos los datos históricos y culturales que han dado pie a lo que es hoy la capital del pecado. Recomiendo este tour 100%. Y como plus: Puedes hablar español y Richard hace lo posible por entender y responder a tus consultas.
