Full description

Indulge your love of conspiracies and government secrets on this your around Area 51. See ancient petroglyphs and visit the spots where UFOs have recently been sighted.

See the airline that "doesn't exist" at McCarren International Airport before making your way to the Area 51 airbase on Groom Lake that also didn't exist for decades - according to officials. Travel through some of the most desolate but scenic deserts in the world to get there. Marvel at the ancient Indian petroglyphs and explore the mysterious dry lake where recent sightings of UFOs have been reported. Continue along the "Extraterrestrial Highway" to arrive at Little A'le' Inn, a scene of numerous movies including "Independence Day."

Find a wealth of information and souvenirs about the top-secret area, and enjoy a burger before going to the infamous Black Mailbox to explore a sacred meeting place for UFO enthusiasts. Arrive at the absolute perimeter of Area 51 through an unexplained "mutant" Joshua tree forest, where guards stand watch with detection devices and cameras mounted among the cacti. Wave at the heavily armed guards, if you dare.

    This was fun! I took my girlfriend for her bday since she is really into this topic. We both had a blast! Dennis was our tour guide and I highly recommend requesting him. He’s super fun, has the best jokes, is full of knowledge, takes great pictures, I mean the list goes on and on! He knows all the best locations to take you and gas all the knowledge of things even outside of Area 51. Lunch was really good! Was not expecting it to be a diner so that was a great surprise. The food was really good! We had the Alien burger and the chili cheese dog. They have other options too. They provide a cool guide at the beginning that tells you facts about Area 51, gives you a map of the area you’ll be exploring, and has cool random facts about Las Vegas. Dennis also has a cool friend to take a pic with if you’re lucky! Definitely would recommend this experience.

    Awesome day trip in a small group of people to the edge of Area 51. I would totally recommend this to everyone who is interested in what's going on there and loves aliens ;-) Dennis was a really kind and caring driver and guide who took us to all the interesting places and told us a lot of information throughout the whole day. He made this trip even more special and unforgettable.

    The tour is amazing, because those guys take you to places you'd never find when you where traveling alone. What was a bit disappointing was, that the guide was not telling any storys / myths or anything to make it more adventurous. You have to keep motivate yourself throughout the tour
