Phillip reviewed a "chum around" with Johnathon in Las Vegas, NV
We spent 10 days in Vegas and the highlight of our trip was our time with Jonathon. He was personable, knowledgeable and a great host. He was patient with us, answering questions, and offering suggestions on how to get the most out of our time there. He even told us he is happy to receive email questions in the future. We are very happy with our experience.

Local hosts are not official tour guides and there are no pre-packaged itineraries. This gives you the freedom to decide the activities you want to do. You can take a turn down any twisty street, or browse any fancy shop that catches your eye, giving you the option to make on-the-spot decisions and enjoy whatever comes your way.
