We live in a different world now, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still go out and enjoy some good food. Las Vegas-based food tour company, Finger Licking Foodie Tours, decided that it was time to create some socially distanced foodie tours for the discerning palate. That’s how the exclusive partnership with ARIA Resort & Casino was born. Both companies were looking for innovative ways to bring their customer base together in a safe, and delicious manner.
The tour that has been created for cuisine loving Las Vegas visitors, features exclusive three-course dinners, at three of the ARIA’s finest restaurants. While the three restaurants the tour will visit changes on a tour by tour basis, there are four possibilities. The first is French restaurant BARDOT Brasseries, which is helmed by chef Michael Mina, who is Michelin-starred. The second is the Jean Georges Steakhouse, which has another Michelin-starred chef, Jean-Georges Vongerichten. The third is CATCH which is known for its delectable seafood, and the last one is Carbone which features classic Italian cuisine.
Guests who visit the restaurants as part of the tour do not need to make reservations and will be served as soon as they arrive at the restaurants. This is a VIP tour, and you will be treated like a VIP the entire time.
The Tour Package
To have this foodie experience, the tour itself costs $150 per person, which includes tips for each restaurant. It is pretty affordable considering that you get to try at least one restaurant run by a Michelin starred chef. There are some great add-ons as well. For an additional $60, you can have a wine and cocktail pairing at each restaurant.
To make this tour even more unforgettable, you can opt to go for a romantic helicopter ride over the glowing Vegas strip with Maverick Helicopters. This is an additional cost of $100 per guest. It is worth it for the limo ride to the helipad, and the champagne toast as you look down over the glittering lights of the casinos and hotels. The helicopters flown by Maverick are ECO-star helicopters, and you will get to enjoy a 15-minute flight around the city. This is the perfect amount of time to enjoy Vegas from the sky, before heading back to your hotel to finish your romantic evening with a special someone.
If you are looking for another Las Vegas experience to complete your weekend getaway, then a visit to the Hoover Dam and the Grand Canyon would be well worth the visit. You can learn more about the history of the area, and see one of the natural wonders of the world.
