The Vegas Mob Tour and Haunted Vegas Tours offer a glimpse into the city’s scandalous and ghostly past.
The Vegas Mob Tour is a two-and-a-half-hour bus tour that reveals the sordid history of Las Vegas. According to Robert Allen, CEO and founder, “People are fascinated by anything about Las Vegas. They want to hear about the celebrities, the casinos, the mob, and all that’s synonymous with this town.”
Allen says he based his tour on the stories found in the popular book The Battle for Las Vegas, written by well known author Dennis Griffin, and personal interviews with Dennis Arnoldy, retired FBI Special Agent.
The experience begins with tales about the mob’s connection with Vegas. You’ll visit the sites where murders, strange disappearances, and mob activity occurred. Your tour guides, dressed in pinstriped suits and fedoras, weave eerie stories about Las Vegas’ darkest secrets. Strange tales of Sin City’s colorful past fill the air.
You will hear about the notorious gangster/casino builder Benjamin “Bugsy” Siegel and infamous mob enforcers Tony “The Ant” Spilotro and Frank Cullotta. Guests learn the truth about casino boss Frank “Lefty” Rosenthal, as well as celebrity deaths, suicides, and many other strange and puzzling Nevada mysteries.
If you are looking for something different, the Vegas Mob Tour provides a spine-tingling look into the dark and mysterious side of Neon City.
Now Robert Allen has added another one-of-a-kind source of information: a real-life gangster and mob hit man. Cullotta, former mobster-turned-government witness, has provided his personal insights to Allen and his guides. Cullotta was the boss of Spilotro’s crew of burglars, robbers, and killers who ran the Las Vegas underworld during the 1970s through the mid-1980s.
He served as a technical advisor to the 1995 movie, “Casino,” in which actor Joe Pesci plays a character based on Spilotro. He also appeared in several scenes in the role of a hit man. This type of inside information isn’t available anywhere else, making Robert Allen’s Vegas Mob Tour the most factual excursion of its kind in Las Vegas.

This spirited and spooky ghost tour will take you to the haunting grounds of “Bugsy” Siegel, Liberace, Redd Foxx, and Elvis. Robert Allen, creator of Haunted Vegas Tours, now makes it possible to visit such eerie sites by offering a guided tour and show, featuring Sin City’s Darkest Ghostly Secrets.
According to Allen, who consulted with Tim Cridland, a paranormal historian, and Janice Oberding, author of the book Haunted Nevada, there are more than 21 places where paranormal activity have been documented in Las Vegas.
The tour covers such sites as the “Motel of Death,” where numerous celebrity deaths have occurred, and the former home of a Las Vegas legend where his ghost continues to haunt despite numerous attempts to exorcise it.
