    So there will be possibly 9 of us arriving at the same time at the airport. Was wondering what would be the best/ quickest way to get everyone to the hotel? We are stay at Excalibur by the way. Just deciding if we do a limo to the hotel would be a great experience. Or taxi,uber,or lyft. What would you reccomend thanks in advance.

    Since there's 9 of y'all, I would just rent a limo, and split it. That would be cheaper than getting Lyft/Uber/Taxi. And, it's a nice way to start out the trip. If you need to stop somewhere for room supplies, a limo driver normally doesn't mind at all. But, the other ones might.

    Check the wax schedule for your return to the airport. It stops just across and down the street a little. 18$ for the group (no tips please).

    I agree do the limo. We've done limo to Excalibur before and since it's a super short trip, it's a great time to pick up water and stuff like that for the rooms.

    It is not going to be cheaper than two ubers unless crazy surge pricing is in effect. They are going to the Excal and they would need a big enough limo to sit nine.

    While it won't be cheaper than 2 or 3 Uber's, splitting a limo cost by 9 would still be very cheap and a much better experience. Have the driver take you to the Vegas sign for a group pic before dropping you off.

    Yeah you could probably get it for under $10 a person which is worth it to me.

    You could also have them take you to in n out or some other quick bite place if that is your thing

    We got a limo to fit 10 of us from Presidential, round trip total was $225 or $25 a person which is well worth it in my opinion.

    I have never done a group limo but you may want to be conscious of the amount of luggage that you all have also and will it all fit in one limo. But I think the limo would be a great idea!
     
    Maybe not this year. Looking forward to 2021!

    Limo, will be good value as they offer discounts for round trip. Also the limo driver will help with your luggage

    We have 7 coming this year. Can a limo fit 7 people each with large suitcases comfortably?
