Las Vegas - Strip Photo Tour w/ Map & Timeline

We're doing a photo tour with our own (non-Vegas) photographer the night before our wedding. We have a limo hired to drive us around. I took a bunch of the photos I like and placed pins on a Google Map. You can view the map here: https://www.google.com/maps/d/edit?mid=zvug_CwDMauA.kjoT8--6dZB0

We've got two hours with our limo, although I can add on another and I'm thinking of doing so. I've created a plan for our tour; has anyone had to plan their own before? If so, is the timing I've listed even possible??

Re: Las Vegas - Strip Photo Tour w/ Map & Timeline

  • I personally think that is a lot in a short time frame. I thinking depending on day of week and time, the sign will take much longer than 10 minutes. I think you will need much more than 10 minutes at each spot to take photos even if it is not busy. You will need time to find the perfect place, wait for people to move, capture some photos, etc.

  • What, you mean I can't have it all?? :D

    Of course I plan to be flexible. My alternate plan was to use the driver for all the places we need to be actually driven to, then have him drop us off at the Bellagio, from there we can walk & do all the pics of Bellagio, Paris, etc.

    Mirage and Aria fountains would be the first to go off of this list...

  • There is usually a line at the Vegas sign. I think this is great idea!

    I don't mean this in a snotty way at all...but I think you are waaaaay overplanning this. Vegas traffic, crowds, etc., are going to make this an impossible timeline to stick to because you have no idea where you'll encounter holdups. 

    If I were you, I'd just make a list of "must-have" photos and a separate list of "nice-to-have" ones and give those to your driver, allowing him to choose the best way to get you to those places in the least amount of time. I think you'll get much better results that way and stress everyone out much less.

  • No offense taken!! I was putting it out there for feedback!

    I guess I'm looking at this as a "emergency plan" in case our driver seems clueless or unwilling to help. I can also add on an extra hour of time to give it some breathing room.

    At any rate, this is great feedback for both me and others. I'll have to decide which photos are must-haves for me!
