Walking Tours

Mid-century walking tours

Las Vegas has a variety of niche tours that cater to just about everyone but for our money it’s Las Vegas Pop Culture Tours that satisfies.

Created by Babs Daitch (one-time social secretary to Frank Sinatra) and Richard Hooker (former Urban Arts coordinator), their signature 90-minute Fremont Street Walking Tour makes a great primer for anyone wanting to learn about where Vegas all began and where it’s headed.

From past to present, this intimate group tour includes stops at historic casinos, neon signs and overlooked gems – as well as a complimentary cocktail at the storied El Cortez Hotel & Casino – all with personalized narrative histories given by their passionate tour guides.

They also boast customized offerings such as mid-century architecture tours, neon night tours, arts district tours and LGBT tours, to name a few. Send them a note and they’ll personalize a tour that’s right for you.

For the ultimate insider’s look at “America’s outdoor museum of popular culture,” Las Vegas Pop Culture Tours delivers the goods.
