VYP+ Excursions

Excursions are behind-the-scenes looks at some of Las Vegas' most interesting businesses. When on an excursion, we'll experience something that we wouldn't have the opportunity to normally. In the past, we've had private Poker lessons at Red Rock and crafted classic cocktails with a mixologist. Excursions are held quarterly and are exclusively for VYP+ members.
