Big Bus Tour Las Vegas

Las Vegas Big Bus Tour

The Big Bus Las Vegas Tour is, in my opinion, the best way to see all of Las Vegas in a single trip! You can sit back, relax, and enjoy the views as entertaining guides show you around the city in style. Forget car rentals, tickets, and itineraries—it’s all taken care of.

What it is: Big Bus Las Vegas Tour is a sightseeing excursion in a big, red bus. The tour makes many stops and last for as long as you want to ride. The tour is led by knowledgeable guides who inform and entertain for your best possible experience of Nevada’s most famous district.

Who it’s for:

Anyone who wants to see Las Vegas.

Where and when:

Buses leave from various points around the city, signaled by Big Bus “hop on, hop off” signs, from 10:00 am to 7:30 pm. Buses stop every 20-30 minutes. You can choose between a day tour of downtown and a day tour of the strip.

Where it goes: The Big Bus has many stops. Here are some of the highlights:

  • Las Vegas Sign. During your Big Bus tour, you will drive past the iconic Las Vegas sign! It’s not the most interactive attraction, but you will want photos of it for your Instagram feed, of course.

Las Vegas Sign

  • Statue of Liberty. This statue is a half-sized replica of the original in New York. It stands outside the New York-New York Hotel and Casino, and has become nearly as famous as its inspiration!
  • Eiffel Tower. The half-sized version of the Eiffel Tower is also located at a hotel and casino, Paris Las Vegas. Although most people know about the Eiffel Tower Replica, many don’t realize that the tower is just one part of a huge conglomerate of Paris-themed structures that decorate the front of the hotel! The coolest part? The legs of the Eiffel Tower actually descend through the ground and into the room of the subterranean casino below.

  • MGM Lion. MGM Grand Las Vegas Hotel and Casino features a gigantic copper statue of Leo the Lion. Leo is MGM’s mascot. Fun fact: the entrance of the casino used to be a huge, open lion’s mouth. When the hotel was redone, the lion statue was erected to replace the creepy entryway.
  • Luxor Sphinx. The Luxor Hotel and Casino has a pretty fantastic Ancient Egypt theme. The most famous part of this is the giant sphinx replica that greets guests, but the pyramid-shaped building and other Egyptian elements are pretty cool, too. The Luxor Sky Beam, which shoots like a laser from the apex of the pyramid to the sky, is the strongest beam of light in the world.
  • The Stratosphere. Stratosphere Las Vegas is a hotel and casino, buts its most famous element is the massive tower that looms above the city. The tower is the tallest structure in the Western United States, and it features the highest thrill rides in the world. People crazy enough to engage in these rides find themselves dangling hundreds of feet above the ground! Less adrenaline-pumping is the revolving restaurant, which offers diners a 360 degree view of the flat desert that stretches in every direction. The night view is amazing!
  • The Pawn Shop. The World Famous Gold and Silver Pawn Shop is a family-owned business that is the featured on the popular reality show Pawn Stars.
  • The Golden Nugget. This casino is one of Las Vegas’ oldest. You can see the Hand of Faith, the world’s largest gold nugget discovered by metal detector, on display there.
  • Bellagio Fountains. The Fountains of Bellagio are a stunning water feature located in front of Bellagio Hotel. You can watch the water show between 8 pm and midnight every night. Definitely a must-see!

  • Fremont Street. This street in downtown Las Vegas is the most famous place in Las Vegas, after the Strip. I really liked the Space Frame, which is a futuristic domed ceiling that covers the street. At night, it is lit up in neon like the rest of the street. Actually, I loved all of Fremont Street. There is a ton of stuff to do there!

  • Forum Shops. This mall is pretty cool, and it’s a lifesaver in the summer when it’s hot, but you still want to walk around and do stuff.

  1. i luv bus tour indeed u can see the whole place while relaxing. its good when my family only stay for a short period of time when travelming nice photos there

  2. This looks like so much fun. My brother in law lives in New Mexico and I told hubby when we go out to visit, that he IS taking me to Vegas since I have never been. Thank for sharing this fun and inexpensive idea!!

  3. This looks so fun! I’d have totally guessed it to be out of my price range- we generally make the trek around cities on foot, but it’s completely affordable. Looks like a great way to see Vegas.

  4. It’s a great way to see Las Vegas without having to worry about planning your own itinerary. It would be perfect for a group of friends or even with family. It’s definitely worth it especially if it’s your first time and Las Vegas and you don’t have any idea where to go!

  5. Looks like a fun way to get around to see the beautiful lights of Las Vegas. I have never been there and all I have seen were from movies, and now, photos. It must have been quite an experience. One thing I am sure of is that the big bus was made for tourists hence one gets to see what needs to be seen when in Vegas. 🙂

  6. That sounds like so much fun! I have never been to Las Vegas before. I have always wanted to check it out though. My husband and I would love to go someday.

  7. Las Vegas is very high on my wishlist! I went to Florida 2 years ago. And we’re thinking about Las Vegas next year. The Big Bus Tour sounds like a great option.

  8. Las vegas is crazy right? Even without planning everything in detail. It’s a city where you can do always something strange. I would love to explore this city.

  9. Oh, this is nice. Thanks for sharing about it here! But, isn’t it a bit fast for the number of stops that are included? I don’t like being hurried when taking photos or posing for photos during trips.

  10. My MIL lives in Vegas. I thought we had seen most of it but I’ve never checked out the bus tour! I’ll have to look it up next time we visit.

  11. Oh, this sounds like a very fun experienced! I will try the Big Bus in Las Vegas when I get there.

  12. My stepmom’s relatives is in Vegas and how I wish they can provide free trip abroad to let us experience the city. They actually needed a nanny because our stepmother went back in PH as she can’t adjust there and they want my dad to take care of our step cousin. Daddy doesn’t want to go there but if he said yes, maybe someday, it’s possible for me to visit the country.

  13. Now this is a good option for those who would want to see more of Las Vegas! If only going there won’t take that much of money and papers are easy to process, I may have gone to those places already. but eventually, in the future.Who knows?!

  14. I love your travels! Hope to be able to visit this place too! It seems you really enjoy what you do glad you have this opportunity.

  15. I have never took a hop on hop off bus before but I see that in order to see Vegas when you don’t have a lot of time, it’s the perfect option. I didn’t know Las Vegas has so many copies of famous monuments, like the Eiffel Tower of Trevi Fountain.

  16. Pretty Cheap and affordable price for a 3 day pass. Not bad at all. I’ve always been curious to see Las Vegas in person. Right now, I’d just have to see it in the movies and fortunately, read about it here in blogs.

    I think I would enjoy the free drinks in Hard Rock Cafe if I get to visit there.

  17. Vegas is such a fun city!!!!! This tour sounds pretty sweet. Next time I’m in Vegas I will have to give it a try

  18. I have never been to Las Vegas, but it is somewhere I hope to go one day. When I go I will have to check this out for sure!

  19. Thanks for sharing the adventures and the cost!
    I always want to know the cost and see if it can fit into our budget.
    If I ever visit, I’d definitely love to do the bus tour!
