    How far and long is the walk from the Luxor to the WAX stop at Tropicana.

    My flight leaves at 8:30am and the Mandalay - Excalibur tram won't be in operation.

    So I need to figure out what time to leave to pick up the WAX to the airport.

    Thanks.

    I'm not a taxi fan but might suggest one in this case. Probably 20 minutes.

    I would think ten minutes at a fair pace; perhaps 15 minutes if walking slowly.

    About 10-15 minutes sounds right. You are going to need to catch at least the 6:37 bus (or 6:33 on weekends). They don't run very often at that time.

    I hate taxis, but I would consider one here before I make that walk, and I have made this very walk several times. If you're looking for something slightly cheaper and nicer than a taxi, seriously consider Uber.

    Thanks for the replies. I kinda figured it might not be worth the walk. But I like to be as frugal as possible. Will take Uber or taxi. I usually stay downtown and take the WAX to and from airport. So I've never done Uber nor a taxi from that area of the strip. How much should it cost?

    Also is there a possibilty of getting ripped off by a taxi driver from there? i.e what should I tell the taxi driver to get to the airport?

    Because its all pretty much right turns (once on Las Vegas Blvd) with no wait times it'll probably only cost $11-12 to go from Luxor to the airport.

    If no luggage, it would be an easy walk in the morning. It needs 15 minutes.
