    I've never been on it myself. Hell, I've never even noticed that bus driving by on LV Blvd. But I don't see how this could be a beneficial ride unless you are a complete newb to Vegas and wanted a "guided tour".

    Has anybody done this? or would you guys just recommend going to those places without the tour bus (on my own time)

    You haven't? I see them all the time on the Strip. If you have lunch at Gameworks on the top floor (where Del Taco, Subway, etc is), and sit at the stools facing NYNY, you will see them. One thing i have always noticed, it's mostly empty. Don't see how it's profitable. Sure, you can ride the Strip and sight see, but that's it, most of the "stuff" is inside the hotels or in the property. People can just ride the Deuce, then walk around and see the Strip inside and out.

    I wish they had tours to Red Rock Canyon, even if it's just the 13 mile loop, at least you can see, hear, and feel Vegas just 20 miles away. I know RRC has hiking tours, but i wish they had mini buses doing the loop. RRC was my peace in Vegas, including hiking, unfortunately, i can't do that now.

    Personally, I'd just get the 24 hour bus pass.
