Ok,here goes. Haven't done a trip report in 2 years.
Airline Continental. Left Columbus to Vegas,had connecting flight in Cleveland. Made for a long flight. No problems with flight. Arrive in Vegas early.
Who: myself,mother and son.
Stayed at Paris and Ballys. Paris nice room all comped for 5 nights.
Mother got a room at Ballys. 4 comped and 1 night for $27. Ballys room are looking very worn. But clean.
Casinos:Ballys,Paris,Ellis Island,Harrahs,Osheas,Mandalay Bay,Aria,Fitzgeralds,Binions,Golden Nugget. Wins for me zippo.I consider a win to be over $200. Left my money everywhere.(hehe)
Shows:The Lion King @ Mandalay Bay.Awesome show. Well worth the money.
Viva Elvis @ the Aria. Good show. Got discounted tickets.
Jubilee @ Ballys. ok show. Awesome costumes.
The Price is Right. Fun show. Didn't get on for the second time.
Went up in the Eiffel Tower at Paris. Awesome view.
Eats: Ellis Island. There breakfast is really good and worth the 4.99 also you get huge portions.
Mone Ami Gabi @ Paris. A bit pricey. Didn't care for there food.But sitting outside and people watching was great fun.
Le Village buffet @ Paris. Very good buffet. with excellent choices.
Nosh's @ Ballys. Mother loved the $2.00 Nathan hot dogs. I also thought they were alright.
Sub way, well subway is subway.
Victorian Room @ Bills. It was ok food.Nothing great.
Cabs: Cabbed everywhere,do to back and hips being out of whack and my mother is 76 and her knee still bothering her from sugery on it.
If you are going a short distance in a cab,like from Ballys to Ellis Island cabbies get a little pissed. But they shouldn't complain a fare us a fare and we tipped good.
Had a great time. I won no money and neither did my Mother,son won $750 on a penny machine at Ellis Island.
One other thing if taking a tour,Please do not take Grand Tours Las vegas. I had a tour booked for Hollywood California,for at least a month and a half before I left. I was in contact with them @ least 2 times before before I left,including the Thursday before I left to confirm the trip.
They called me on Sunday 12 hours before the trip and tell me they won't be taking us do to not enough people going. So I asked how many were there going and they said only us 3. Why in Gods name didn't they have the commmon curtsey to tell me 2 weeks before,that they didn't have a full boat(bus). I would have gotten another tour company to take us. So be very leary of GRAND TOURS LAS VEGAS. There site is www.grandtourslv.com
Flight Home was uneventful.Good flight. Continental is a great airline to fly.
Hope no one has become bored reading this. All in all a very good trip> And mainly I got to spend it with my Mother and my son.
