every tour tells a story

Las Vegas is America’s outdoor museum of popular culture.

Las Vegas has captured an enduring place in the public imagination. Now you can experience Las Vegas through a series of innovative guided tours with personal and up close insights into its unique history, fabled places, iconic people and diverse cultural landscapes.

Las Vegas Pop Culture Tours, a new, innovative and home grown venture, is offering a series of walking tours that bring the city’s larger than life scale into a personal and accessible hands-on experience of place. Our tours are an exciting response to the historic trend of Las Vegas becoming one of the most intriguing pedestrian oriented urban places in America.

Our inaugural walking tours include: A trek though the historic Fremont Street downtown with its new hip persona; an around the world stroll on the fabled iconic Strip; and a cultural journey through the emerging 18b Arts District. Our portfolio of custom tours include: The Pop Culture Museums Tour; the Architecture and Mid Century Tour; the Spectacular Neon Night Tour; and the Foodies Culture & Culinary Tour, among others.

Our tours are limited in size. They are led by local, experienced and passionate guides whose narratives reference some Vegas-centric themes including: the city of reinvention, the success of excess, urban spectacle in a Technicolor landscape, the mystique of sin City, our atomic legacy, exotic boosterism for a mythic city, our legacy of imploding history, recurring themes of the west, and how Las Vegas lives in the world of pop culture.
