Relive Sin City’s Dark Past

You have probably heard the phrase “What happens in Vegas, Stays in Vegas”. Well what happened here all started with the Mob. Join us as we take you back to the 1940’s and travel in time though the 1980’s when the mob’s influence reached its pinnacle. You will visit sites where mob murders, burglaries, a car bombing, and underworld activities occurred. Learn about the ruthless mob enforcers and hear how they operated in the shadows while dodging law enforcement officials.

Your evening will begin with a mini-documentary about Las Vegas and the Mafia’s influence on the town. The tour guide will relate stories of how Las Vegas gained the nickname “Sin City” while showing you various locations relating to mob history.

Highlights of the tour include the house that was used as a filming location for the classic film “Casino”. Also, you will be taken to an infamous mob hang out where you will enjoy complimentary pizza and more stories from your guide. Visual aids will be shown relating to the stories, including video clips and FBI surveillance photos.

The authenticity of this tour is the result of extensive research and firsthand information from our consultants including former FBI special agent Dennis Arnoldy, author/mob historian Dennis Griffen, and ex-mob hit-man Frank Cullotta. Documentaries, newspaper clips, books, and interviews were used as well.

On your next visit to this historic city there is a unique and memorable experience waiting for you. Journey into our dark and mysterious side and let us “create adventure” for you and your friends.

Learned all about early Vegas and the mob. The tour combined tour guide commentary, short videos in the bus, and several stops at historic locations. Tour guide (Bobby Lucetta) was extremely knowledgeable of Vegas mob personalities and shared many anecdotes.

As time passes, newer generations may not be aware of the role of the Mob on how Vegas "took off" and this tour does a very nice job in bringing that history back into focus. While the framework of the tour is based on the movie "Casino" (watch the movie prior to taking the tour if possible), the tour's scope... More

ABSOULUTELY FANTASTIC!!! I went on this tour a few years ago and thought it was great, so when my in-laws came to town I figured I would take them to this. First, I noticed the pickup location had changed to the Tuscany Suites and Casino, which is much nicer and more fitting than where they used to be. Our tour... More
