Las Vegas Holidays

The very definition of opulence, Las Vegas is an oasis of neon lights, glittering signs, and endless parties. This is a city with an incredible energy and boundless extravagance. Experience this adult’s playground with breath-taking moments at transcendental stage shows and glittering casinos during your Las Vegas holiday.

Surrounded by so much energy, it’s not hard to immerse yourself in the many sights and sounds during your Las Vegas holiday. Wander around and take in the perfectly choreographed dance of the lavish Fountains of Bellagio. Lose yourself in extraordinary one-of-a-kind shops. Walk the four mile-long Las Vegas Strip and Fremont Street, and indulge in some of the world’s most incredible casinos.

Las Vegas From Above

With so much to take in, it pays to get a birds’ eye view of this extravagant city. Head to Stratosphere Tower, the highest point in Las Vegas, to witness the City of Lights in all its glory, or board the High Roller observation wheel and take in the Las Vegas Strip from above in the comfort of a luxurious pod - and with a drink in hand.

Take the weight off your feet and glide above the hustle and bustle of Fremont Street on the Slotzilla Zipline, taking in the impressive lights of the video screen ceiling above and the milling crowds below.

Sitting among stunning desert and canyons, Las Vegas is the perfect starting point for diving into a holiday of adventure.

Explore the treasures of neighbouring states on a self-drive Canyon Adventures tour, or journey on to Los Angeles, where you can set off on Route 66, the road to discovering almost 2,500 miles of the United States.

For a spot of rest and relaxation, why not combine your Las Vegas holiday with a trip to the stunning beaches of Mexico?

Acrobatic performances and world renowned artists? Absolutely. The list is pretty much endless so you really will find it hard to choose just a few on your holiday to Las Vegas.
