$699 (Double Occupancy) $60 (Single Supplement)
Day One: We’ll head towards Las Vegas with plenty of breaks and a stop for lunch on self, on our way to the Golden Nugget Casino Resort—our headquarters for the next two nights. We’ll check into our hotel and after a refresh, we’ll head out to dinner, included, at the award-winning Golden Nugget Buffet. Enjoy live cooking stations, serving up more than 100 different choices, featuring American, Italian and Asian cuisine, a fresh fruit & salad bar and a dessert spread that is out of this world. A full bar is available and on self. After dinner we’ll head out to explore the flashy Las Vegas Strip, with a very special stop at the Bellagio Hotel and Casino—home to Bellagio Conservatory & Botanical Garden. Each season, the enormously talented horticulturalists and designers who make up the Bellagio Conservatory team transform this 14,000-square-foot floral playground into a showcase of the distinctive sights and colors of spring, summer, fall and winter. We’ll marvel at cherry trees in full bloom, along with 65,000 flowers—including calla lilies, chrysanthemums and tulips— that create the symbols and traditions of a Japanese spring. Inside the gardens, a 32-foot-tall model of Osaka Castle, one of Japan’s most iconic landmarks, serves as the centerpiece presided over by red-crowned cranes, designed after the famous 19th century prints of artist Hiroshige. This springtime display is so spectacular that over 20,000 people, from all over the world, pass through this garden daily. Later we’ll enjoy a free evening, and there is much to see and do in Las Vegas!
Day Two: A fabulous breakfast buffet is included at the hotel, then it’s back on the bus headed to Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, just 15 miles west of Las Vegas. Don’t forget your camera! Red Rock Canyon offers the most incredible views of desert beauty—towering red cliffs and abundant wild life—a stark contrast to the bright lights and glitz of Las Vegas. This gorgeous conservation area is home to about 200 different animals, which include: burros, coyotes, bighorn sheep, red tailed hawks, golden eagles, hummingbirds, wild horses, bobcats, and mountain lions. Early afternoon we’ll head back to our hotel to refresh before gathering for dinner, included, at the Golden Nugget buffet. After dinner we’ll head out to enjoy “O” by Cirque du Soleil at the Bellagio Theatre, where we have Level B seating. “O” was derived from the pronunciation of “eau”, the French word for water. An international cast of world-class acrobats, synchronized swimmers, divers and characters will perform in, on and above the water to create a breathtaking experience in a magnificent theatre reminiscent of a European opera house. “O” weaves an aquatic tapestry of artistry, surrealism, and theatrical romance in this timeless production. Later we’ll enjoy a free evening.
Day Three: We’ll enjoy a relaxed breakfast buffet at the hotel, included. After breakfast it’s bags out and we’re back on the bus headed for home, with plenty of great stops and sightseeing along the way. Don’t miss out on this fantastic Las Vegas Tour!
