Jordan was very knowledgeable and would go into great depth. He also understood the group and customized the experience to fit the group. I would highly recommend him, and look forward to additional tours with him.”
“Jordan is a super friendly and knowledgeable tour guide! The photos he had were a great addition to his stories. I highly recommend this downtown tour if you want to get away from the Strip, learn more about the origins of Las Vegas/Fremont St, and step into some historic casinos.”
“We are locals and have been to Fremont St plenty of times. Playing tourist is always fun, you get to see things from another perspective. Our tour guide, Jordan was great! He pointed out a few things we had previously overlooked. We enjoyed hearing the story of how Las Vegas came to be.”
