    second that. Did my first shuttle my last trip. Was really happy with the service. Everyone was extremely friendly. I stayed at The Quad and there were maybe 3 or 4 stops before me but it was not that long. It doesnt take that long, think about how long it takes to drop someone off and get their bags?

    Highly recommend a shuttle.

    Approx $15 bucks. It's important you tell the cabbie "No tunnel, No freeway, No strip." Otherwise the cab fare will be substantially higher.

    Ideally they will take the Swenson, Tropicana, Koval route. Then, $10 bucks will do it.

    It's unfortunate, but it works best when you act a bit surly. They will be less likely to take advantage of you. Vegas cab drivers are a bunch of long-hauling pricks.

    If you had a long day and dislike stop and go traffic, or it is very busy on the strip, taking the tunnel and coming in the side entrance to Mirage will hit a bit over $20 plus tip, but a more relaxing ride.

    Your choice.

    did that at 7pm one Saturday night - on purpose. Arrived a bit more relaxed than taking the surface streets.
