Walking Gourmet Resized.png

The Walking Gourmet "Culinary Mystery Tours" - This concept is intriguing to us. The tour is a food tasting experience taking place in either Mandalay Bay or The Palazzo/Venetian. You will visit 4-5 restaurants per tour, with 2-4 tastings of incredible food (appetizers, entrees, desserts, etc.) and cocktails per stop, lasting 3-3.5 hours in the afternoon.  The tours are all-inclusive (except for any tip you would like to give your professional tour guide).

Tours pricing is from $199.00 per person (remember-it's 100% inclusive-not a bad price).

Coupla "Date Night" - This was another interesting idea. A "Date Night" for groups of couples. Nothing to plan, just show up. Many of their events get you away from the usual, and the prices are very inexpensive ($15 - $40 per couple on the events we were looking at). Nothing dicey, just good fun. Take a look and see if anything is planned during your trip.

Downtown Las Vegas Food Tour - This walking tour takes place near 3rd & Fremont Street (your exact starting location will be provided on ticket purchase) Fridays and Saturdays in February tours last from 1:00 to 3:30 P.M.
