Full description
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 desert 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, 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!

    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
