You watch reality TV. Admit it. We all do. While you're visiting Vegas, this tour gives you the opportunity to visit the scenes of three popular reality television series.
The five-hour Reality TV Insider Tour will take you to the places where the shows are filmed. You'll get to step inside these businesses. And you'll be given "insider" access, which will make you feel like a VIP.
So where exactly do you go? You'll board a mini coach at Bally's and head for the famous Gold & Silver Pawn Shop. It's the home of "Pawn Stars" on the History channel. After bypassing the line (thanks to your insider status), you can browse for bargains -- this store is filled with unique merchandise -- and check out the inner workings. You never know…you may spot someone haggling with Austin "Chumlee" Russell. Although not part of the Harrison family, everyone loves this funny cast member who is best known for his wisdom about sneakers and video games.
Then it's on to downtown's Neonopolis entertainment center. You'll visit Toy Shack, which is packed with treasured toys from yesterday and today. They've got everything here from Hot Wheels cars to Transformers figures. You'll also pop into the Ultimate Sports Cards & Memorabilia. As the name suggests, this store carries a wide variety of sports cards and related collectibles like autographed jerseys and baseballs. Both of these businesses are owned by industry experts who've made several appearances on "Pawn Stars."
There are two more important reality TV sites you'll get to explore. Acrylic Tank Manufacturing (aka ATM) is the family-owned aquarium store from Animal Planet's "TANKED." The show follows the antics of two brothers-in-law, Wayde King and Brett Raymer, as they create some truly ingenious custom tanks for major restaurants, casinos, banks and hotels across the country. Some tour groups have gotten lucky and spied cast member Irwin "The General" Raymer, Brett's father and the company's outspoken manager.
Finally for the car fanatics, you'll see Welder Up, where Steve Darnell and his team build unique creations that you'd expect to see Mad Max driving on the Discovery channel's series "Vegas Rat Rods" and the Shelby Museum. The race car driver turned automotive designer Carroll Shelby, was responsible for the drool-worthy Shelby Cobra, Mustang GT500 and Terlingua, to name a few. Today, they’re still at the forefront of the auto industry and will let you talk shop with some of the mechanics inside the factory after your tour of a true American dynasty.
