Las Vegas, known as the city of sin, the one that never sleeps, luxury, vice, gaming and one of the most amazing cities in the world. This artificial city, built in the middle of the Mojave desert is one of the favorite destinations for Americans and foreign tourists and one of those cities that we believe, must be visited at least once in a lifetime.
There are few things you cannot do in Las Vegas, a theme park with an endless leisure offer, ranging from playing casino, watching magic shows or the Circus of the Sun, attending a concert of a great singer, shopping through hotels or outlets, until you get married in one of their «Wedding Chapel»For less than 200 dollars.
And besides, if you don't have enough with the city, there are several Las Vegas tours that are worth it, like going to see the Grand Canyon or making a section of Route 66.
On this occasion we have made a list of what we consider are the 5 best tours and excursions in Las Vegas in Spanish, based on the days we spent in the city on our trip through the National Parks of the Western United States in 26 days.
1. Excursion to the Grand Canyon
The Grand Canyon of Colorado is one of the most spectacular natural wonders in the world and without a doubt, one of the best excursions in Las Vegas what can you do. For centuries the Colorado River has been eroding this deep gorge reaching heights of up to 1500 meters, which we assure you, will not leave you indifferent.
The Grand Canyon can be accessed in different ways, by rental car within a route through the National Parks of the West or by doing the incredible Route 66. Another good alternative is to take a bus, helicopter or plane excursion from Las Vegas.
We especially recommend flying over the Grand Canyon, either by helicopter or by plane, since the views from the air are impressive and unparalleled. Also, if you choose the helicopter, you can land near the Colorado River inside the Grand Canyon.
Another of the things you have to do in the Grand Canyon is to take one of the buses that run through the park and get off at its incredible viewpoints. The most famous viewpoint of the Grand Canyon is the Skywalk, an artificial viewpoint with glass floor over 1300 meters high, not suitable for those suffering from vertigo.
2. Las Vegas night tour
One of the best things to see and do in Las Vegas is to visit it at night, walking along its The Strip illuminated with neon lights and advertising signs. On the Las Vegas Strip, the wide street that runs from the famous poster «Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas»To the unmistakable Stratosphere hotel, its most famous hotels are concentrated in which all kinds of leisure activities are carried out.
At night you can not miss the show of the fountains of the Bellagio Hotel, enter the Venetian Hotel with its canals and gondolas, climb the Stratosphere to enjoy the views or just stroll watching the lighting of the Hotel Paris, the Excalibur or the New York New York, among many others.
Fremont Street is another of the places to visit in Las Vegas essential at night, where you can enjoy a «Fremont Street Experience«, a show of lights and sound on a large screen that serves as a ceiling on this pedestrian street.
And if you've been wanting more, you can always book a night helicopter tour over Las Vegas, a unique experience with which we are sure, you'll just get to know the sin City.
All these places can be visited by bus and on foot, although a good option, if it is your first time in the city, is to book a night tour with a guide in Spanish to learn about the curiosities and anecdotes of the city.

5. Shopping tour in an outlet
During our stay in Las Vegas we took advantage of one morning to go to an outlet and take advantage of the offers to fill our closet.
There are three important outlets in the city and its surroundings: Las Vegas Premium Outlets South, Fashion Outlets Primm and Las Vegas Premium Outlets North, for us the best.
Las Vegas Premium Outlets North is an outdoor outlet located north of the Strip with almost 200 stores and discounts ranging from 25% to 65%. Normally, as in most US outlets, American brands such as Nike, Tommy Hilfiger or Michael Kors are the ones that offer the best discounts.
The outlet has free parking, although if you don't have a car you can also arrive by bus, taxi or Uber. Another option, if you do not want to worry about anything, is to book a tour of about 6 hours in which you will be picked up at your hotel.
Las Vegas Premium Outlets South is of the same chain as that of the North, as well as very similar, although located in the southern part of the Strip. The Fashion Outlets Primm is about 30 minutes away by car and has fewer stores and fewer offers than the other two.
