Area 51 Day Tour from Las Vegas
Explore the highlights of Area 51 on this day trip from Las Vegas without having to rent a car. A great choice for first-time visitors, this tour takes you to see the top-secret Janet Airlines, the mysterious alien petroglyphs, the Black Mailbox, and the mutant Joshua Tree forest. Travel between attractions with ease in an air-conditioned coach, and enjoy lunch at the Little A’Le’Inn, an alien-themed restaurant on the Extraterrestrial Highway.
What to Expect
Start your Area 51 tour with early pickup from your Las Vegas hotel in an air-conditioned coach, and a stop at the Las Vegas airport to see Janet Airlines—the airline that doesn’t exist—and its fleet of unmarked jets.

Travel along the Extraterrestrial Highway through some of the world’s most desolate desert landscape, and visit an ancient dry lake known for its UFO sightings and unusual life-size alien petroglyphs. Then, stop for lunch at the famous Little A’Le’Inn, where you can discover a wealth of information on this mysterious area.

Next, visit the Black Mailbox location, a popular meeting spot for UFO hunters, and the absolute perimeter of the infamous Area 51 military base.

See the mutant Joshua Tree forest, where the Men in Black stand guard with detection devices and cameras, and the heavily-armed guards in the 4x4 up on the hillside, and then end your tour with hotel drop-off in Las Vegas.

The tour started off rough. I purchased my tickets through a third party. I had comunicated with the owner (president?) of Adventure Photo Tours through the third party site. So didn't seem like a concern. However, when I showed up for pick up at the...More

Definitely a fun nerdy way to spend the day in Vegas away from the slot machines

Sorry for the lateness of this review but it's in alien time. I thought it was funny still about waiting for a white van to take me out to the desert. I really had an enjoyable time being I'm a huge x files fan and...More

The tour took about 11 hours or so. We were picked up at our hotel at 6:30am and got back to our hotel around 5pm. It’s definitely worth it! It is a lot of driving but they take you to places you’d never go on your own... More
