1997 Good Experiences
Just got back from Vegas a hour ago. Wanted to tell you that we had an enjoyable time and enjoyed Xtreme Scene very much. I also wish to thank you for bringing the tickets to our hotel, Quality Inn, Key Largo, on Saturday. This was done even though the voice mail said that your office was closed. My wife and I appreciate the excellent customer service. We shall continue to the read your newsletter to stay informed on activities in Las Vegas. Again, thank you. Robert and Patricia Price

Thanks for the inside scoop of freebees and shows in the Vegas area. Had a great time!!
Ken Smith

MR. Reed: I have enjoyed your web site for over two years and your Insider Viewpoint magazine for more than four years. Our recent trip to Vegas was excellent and we want to thank you again for the Viva Las Vegas Show & Xtreme Show tickets and the excellent list of companies to do business with. Your free newsletter is great. Our group of nearly two hundred used several of the specials you offered, especially liked, Budget and Practical rent a cars, Best Western Mardi Gras and many more. Keep up the good work, we will be back in four months.
Bob Neil - NY

Thanks for the Xtreme Scene tickets. My wife and I enjoyed the show so much we took our friends to the show the next night and paid for those tickets. We really had a great time. It was a fast pace, entertaining adult show well worth the money.
The Baker family - Florida

We just returned from our second trip to Las Vegas, and we had a blast. Thank you very much for the Viva Las Vegas tickets, we really enjoyed the show. Let me also say that Las Vegas is absolutely NO PLACE FOR PEOPLE UNDER THE AGE OF 21! It is upsetting to see people dragging infants and toddlers around at 2 and 3 AM, it is ridiculous! All in all we had a great time and thank you again for the free show tickets!
E. Barford Morrisville, PA

We just got back from Las vegas on April 10th and had a great time. We go at least twice a year but this is the first time we received free show tickets from you. The Viva Las Vegas show was really fun. Didn't win much to speak of but who really expects to? Roxy's Dinner at the Stratosphere has the best burgers in the world!!!!!!!!!! The slots there didn't pay off at all. The trip to the top of the tower is a must to do. Love your news letter, learned a lot about Las Vegas from it. Keep it up!
C Pfeiffer, Michigan

During the week I spent in Las Vegas with a friend, I saw several excellent shows that didn't cost much, including Viva Las Vegas (free), Les Folies Bergere (2 for 1), and King Arthur's Tournament (full price). Even though I was turned-off by the gambling in Las Vegas, I found plenty of other things to do and see. The great shows definitely made my vacation worthwhile.
A. Avery - MA

Having just returned to Chicago-I must praise the Practical Rent-a Car operation. On two separate occasions they did whatever it took to fulfill our needs-this during the dreaded Broadcasters Convention (100,000 people). If they could do it then I am sure they can do even better when things are a little less crazy in town.
W. W. - Wauconda, IL

Just got back from Las Vegas and the tickets you provided to American Superstars and Viva Las Vegas at the Stratosphere were great! Each show was well received, and a seat up front cost as little as a $5 tip. Thanks, again.

We just want to drop a line to thank you for delivering to our hotel the free VIVA LAS VEGAS SHOW TICKETS. All I had to do was to call you and the tickets were waiting at the desk for our group. I was not sure if this was a gimmick or not but you proved me wrong. We had a wonderful time in Vegas. Thanks again for going out of your way to make the delivery of tickets possible.
Don Burke - Essex, Ont. Canada

Thanks for telling us about the Mardi Gras Inn Hotel. What a pleasant surprise. Eight friends of ours from around the US met in Las Vegas for a fun weekend. The Mardi Gras had a very large rooms, helpful staff and the location is perfect. We also rented a car from one of your advertisers and had an all around ideal stay in Las Vegas. We will be sure to tell everyone about the Mardi Gras Inn and the great service you provide.
Dan & Linda

Mr Richard Reed. . . We hereby wish to thank you for your initiative and all your work to update and forward information about Las Vegas. My wife an I will arrive in Vegas on the 23 of October and stay for a week. We certainly appreciate your information of what is going on in Vegas and all the benefits we get as subscribers of your newsletter. To make a weeks trip from Scandinavia to Vegas is a big deal for us and we like to prepare as much as possible. Before your newsletter that was very difficult and all tickets sold out when we arrived last time (two years ago). We are now much better prepared and look forward to enjoy our stay even more, thanks to you. Best regards from two of your friends in Stockholm, Sweden
AnnMargrethe and Rolf Ericsson - Sweden

Our 1st trip to Vegas was a good one. Stayed at Imperial Palace & had a clean room with no problems. The elevators were not slow. All the IP personal were polite & helpful. Didn't win big jackpots but had fun. Did better at Flamingo. Did terrible at Harrah's. Ready to go back!!
Diane Corwin

We found this rental car agency through this website and used them this past week (3/23-3/26). Though small in size they are professionally run with customer service a major part of their emphasis. We recommend them to others without reservation. (no pun intended!)
John and Diane Antista

I just came back from Las Vegas and want to comment on Binion's Horseshoe in Downtown LV. It is easily one of the friendliest casinos in town, period. The majority of the dealers and pit bosses are very friendly and try to make you feel welcome. Also, you don't have to bet $25 a hand for 4 hours to get a comp meal. Is it any wonder that they have such a loyal following amongst locals? Personally, I do almost all of my gambling exclusively at the Horseshoe.
Justin Ho - Vancouver,BC,Canada

Thanks again - for all the FREE tickets. Just came back, we had a blast especially liked the show at the Plaza. --- Mr Money

My sister and I go to Las Vegas every year and we just got back from taking my son there for his 21st birthday. We stayed at the MGM Grand Hotel for the first time and it was fabulous. Check-in was quick and the staff was great. Money saving hint - if you reserve a room way ahead of time, and you're not real concerned with exceptional luxury, ask for a room in the Emerald Tower. We stayed there for almost half the price of the "regular rooms" but ours was still VERY nice. We rented a car from Practical Car Rental that we found through their advertisement here in the Insider Viewpoint Newsletter. Those guys are great and very helpful. They are reasonable and EASY to deal with. They got us right back to the airport too after we returned the car. We highly recommend Practical Car Rental and the MGM Grand.
Sharon Slater

We go to Las Vegas several times a year and we always stay at the Tropicana. We are members of the Island Winners Club and we get great deals because of it. There are lots of things to do there and it is on one of the best corners in the city for children. Now that we have found your excellent web site hopefully we will be able to get even better deals.
Melody Ciaravino

I need to say that the Insider Viewpoint is awesome!!! I sent an e-mail the day before I left to Vegas for the VIVA LAS VEGAS tickets at The Stratosphere, and low and behold, I had them at my hotel the next day. Thanks a Lot, not only did we truly enjoy the show, but loved the view from the top of The sphere, and as always enjoyed Las Vegas. Please note that I will be back in town in a week or so, and will look up your Services. I don't care if it is your first time to Las Vegas or your 100th, get some info From the Insider Viewpoint Magazine Las Vegas. It will be beneficial.
Todd Havelka Missoula, MT

We just got back from a long weekend in Vegas (our second visit). We had a great time. The things we must recommend are Cirque de Soleil's "Mystere" at Treasure Island--the best show in town, much better than Siegfried and Roy. Get seats that are high up so you can see everything. Spago at the Forum Shops is wonderful, as is Antonio's at Rio.
Lisa & Erik Sparks - Baltimore, MD

I returned from Vegas yesterday. It had been years since we been there and were amazed at all of the changes. The hotels are bigger and better than ever and the people even seemed nicer and more friendly that we remembered. Nightlife in Las Vegas is fabulous. Any show is worth seeing. The Insider Viewpoint even delivered complimentary tickets to me at my hotel for the Viva Las Vegas show at the Stratosphere. Highly recommended. The Rio Hotel/Casino has a wonderful wine cellar and a great Voodoo Lounge, with a terrific view of the area. We ate at the Voodoo Cafe, the atmosphere was nice, but the food not so great.
Kathy Gros - New Orleans, LA

I have already saved significant dollars using the Las Vegas Insider Viewpoint discount at Budget Rent-a-Car - thanks! I will keep using your advertisers as much as possible. Try to get a downtown hotel in on it, like the Plaza. Thanks Brad Waddell -
FLEXquarters Software - (Arizona) -

My husband and I go to Las Vegas three times a year. It is my favorite place to vacation and have fun. We stayed, for the first time, at the newly remolded Sahara - the staff, rooms, restaurants and everyone couldn't be nicer. We will be returning in December and plan to stay there again.
Theresa Peterlein

July I flew to Vegas for a 3 day mini vacation at the Sahara Hotel/Casino. I thought the "under construction" inconvenience was the reason the hotel was so inexpensive. I just required a bed anyway and didn't really care about the regular hotel luxuries. What I fell into was an "Oasis in the desert!" The new casino was dazzling! The big name entertainment was not to big to say a pleasant "hello young man" while cruizing the casino. (Mr. Jackie Mason) Those who did not use the Sahara Valets were the real losers. The waiting time for other casinos I visited was 4 times longer in the summer heat. After a day in the heat, the newly remodeled room and reliable air conditioning was a delight to relax in, and the maid service was punctual and professional. To avoid the rush I simply checked out on my room TV. Though I didn't use the pool, it looked clean and inviting. The sports book was right by the elevators and I liked the fact I didn't have to go into the casino to place my baseball bets. My mini-vacation was a delightful comfort to the senses! Thanks Sahara!
William Bohnett, Salinas, CA

Dear sirs, I just got back from Las Vegas on Friday. Thanks for the tickets to the "Viva Las Vegas Show".
Joshua Sherman

I just returned from your fun city, thanks for all the insider information. My trip was the best ever. Especially liked Hippo & The Wild Bunch restaurant, our party of six almost stayed all night. I highly recommend this restaurant/bar.
Tom H. Ohio

I went to a restaurant called Spago, possibly the best food we have ever eaten. We read your review of their restaurant on your web site. You were definitely right, what a great restaurant, nothing like this in North Carolina.
Ann, North Carolina

Just returned from a 4 nite stay at the Las Vegas Club, downtown. Understand that we are not into the gambling scene, so this report is a comment on other items. Shuttle from McCarran took over an hour and was extremely crowded. Fremont Experience was very interesting and entertaining. Try the "Natural" breakfast at the Horseshoe, excellent ham, eggs, hash browns, toast, coffee for $2.99 and prime rib at Molly's in Fitzgeralds for $3.99. Attended two shows, Radio City Music Hall Spectacular and Xtreme Scene (Thanks for the free Tickets, Insider). Crowds at both were subdued, but the shows were good. The male singer/dancers (Soul Desire) at Xtreme were excellent!
Don Smith

For over three months my wife and I have been viewing your web site and receiving your magazine in the mail each month. Finally our trip to Las Vegas materialized and we decided to see how lucky your lucky numbers are. We went to Gold Coast and won over $500.00 playing you lucky numbers. Thanks I am a believer.
Dan & Shelly, California

Our party of eight returned today from Las Vegas and I just had to send you an e-mail. The Free tickets to VIVA LAS VEGAS you gave my group was terrific!!!! What a great show, how do you make any money by giving away such a good deal? Your loyal readers.
Mike & Linda, Oklahoma

Just to let you know we had a great time in Vegas. The tickets we got from you arrived promptly and we really enjoyed the show. The Stratosphere was not the biggest or best Hotel and Casino but was surely one of the friendliest. We had a wonderful time and will go back probably in the fall. Keep your newsletter going as it is a fine way to keep up with what's up in the area. More information on Laughlin would be appreciated. Thanks again it was just great.
Carol Tracy

I understand why you have used several pictures of Red Rock Canyon on your front covers over the past couple years. We visited there last week and it was breath taking. We cannot wait to return and visit some of the other parks and attractions you have listed in the Insider Viewpoint Magazine.
Gail T. , Oregon

Just returned from Las Vegas and enjoyed everything. We stayed at the Mirage and used your magazine daily. Thanks! By the way, what is the problem with the Mirage, they said they did not carry your magazine. We stopped at the VIP desk of the MGM Grand and they were extremely pleased to give us one of your magazines. Is the Mirage people a sleep at the switch? We even won a few dollars this trip at the MGM Grand!
Mike & Lorna T., Ohio

What a city! Thanks for your magazine, it was a life saver. We had fun and made money at Monte Carlo. Can't wait to come back to Las Vegas, we have been home three days.
W. Anderson, New York

Glad to see you have Comfort Inn as an advertiser. We really enjoy staying in their motels around the country. It makes me happy to see a familiar sign in Las Vegas. We will use their discount real soon!
Betty, Iris & Wanita - Iowa

My husband and I and three other couples had a wonderful time in Las Vegas. Thank you very much for the tickets to the Viva Las Vegas show and for delivering them to our hotel. We truly enjoyed it. Don't miss seeing the view from the top of the Stratosphere! We stayed at the Treasure Island--very nice. The buffet food was excellent but the slots were definitely greatly in favor of the house. We look forward to the opportunity for another trip to this fascinating city.
Janet Walter -Chesterland, Ohio

Thanks! I found you on the Internet about three weeks ago and really like your web site. I played your Internet slot machine and won some discounts and free tickets. My family just returned Thursday from Las Vegas and we had the best time we ever had. Your magazine and web site proved to be a real winner. Speaking of winning we also won big at the dollar slots at The Orleans.
Robert & Cindy W., Texas

Thanks! My new wife and I just returned from Vegas. We got married and had a great time. Your magazine was an incredible asset and we used it daily. Especially appreciate the advertisement on the flowers, by Elegant Creations. I spent way more than I promised my new wife I would at the casino. A quick ride in a taxi and I returned with some great looking flowers. The flowers were probably the best thing I bought while in Las Vegas! Sure got my butt out of hot water.
Roger S. - Oklahoma

Thank you for the VIVA LAS VEGAS SHOW tickets. We had a party of 18 go to the show and it is the first time that EVERY person agreed on anything - the show was excellent. Keep up the good work.
M/M Barlow, San Jose, California

Thanks! We just returned from Vegas, we were married there March 7th! We were married at Graceland Wedding Chapel with "The King" in attendance. We stayed at New York-New York and it was FABULOUS!!! Visit the Motown Cafe inside New York, it is THE happening place!

We (8 people) just returned from the Utility Company Convention in Las Vegas. Thank you for making such a great magazine. We used it like a Bible.
L. Stewart, Florida

Many thanks for your E-Mails, it's a great service for people like us from overseas. You'll see, as soon as more people in Europe use Internet (it's still in the beginning here), you'll have a "run" to the wonderful service that you offer.
Gisela Eichinger-Bilke, Germany

I recently went to Las Vegas for my first time, meeting eight other people from across the country who have vacationed there together before. Absolutely nothing negative to say about the whole experience. We all stayed at the Mirage Hotel. The gambling was great, the group was great, and I loved the city and the many sights. I will go back.
Tweedy M.

We recently returned from Las Vegas and had a perfect trip. My cousin rented a car from National using your discount and we went all over. We especially liked The Orleans casino. We ate at two of the restaurants you have listed in the Insider Viewpoint and we were very pleased, Spago and Cipriani. Thanks for making a great informative magazine, it is the best.
Linda S., New Jersey

WOW! I just got home from my Las Vegas trip and it was great, especially the VIVA LAS VEGAS Show. Thanks for the free tickets. Also thanks for shipping the Las Vegas posters so quickly. I just opened them and they are great. What a bargain, I will definitely order more for my friends.
W. Parker, New York

Thank you for your newsletter - it saved us a bunch of money. Every company we did business with treated us like VIP's. We especially liked the VIVA LAS VEGAS
Show.L. Sawyer, California

We recently stayed at the Aladdin hotel for the second time. We are always treated very well. The slot card gives very generous comps on very little play. The rooms are always clean and made up and we have never waited to get into our rooms. The Aladdin staff is always smiling and helpful. I'm off again to the Aladdin next week, see you there.

I would like to take this opportunity to tell you that your information at this site is informative, and most of all, very helpful for those of us that take a quick vacation to Las Vegas. I did subscribe to the newsletter and was able to use the information there. I had a super time in Las Vegas this past weekend, especially enjoyed the VIVA LAS VEGAS SHOW.
Mel Foster, NY

I ordered two tickets to see the shows at the Stratosphere and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The tickets were delivered to our hotel, just as I requested by telephone, which made it simple for us to do our stops at the casinos and have a good time there.
P.K. Keller, Texas

I am a single parent with two children. . . We visited several sites you had listed in your Insider Viewpoint Magazine and was pleasantly surprised to find things to do for a family. Thanks. . .! T.
Walker San Francisco, CA

I have been reading your magazine for 3 months and I'm sorry I did not take advantage of the offers while in Las Vegas in March '97
Kris Rinehart - Arcanum, OH

Six of us from New York recently visited Las Vegas. We obtained your magazine from the extremely nice and helpful concierge, Margaret, at the St. Tropez Hotel. Your magazine, the free VIVA LAS VEGAS tickets and Margaret really made our trip a big success, keep up the good work and best of all we won $3200.00 at the Monte Carlo.
S. Cohen, New York

My husband and I would not know what to do without your magazine. Each time we arrive in Las Vegas it is the first thing we check before we make our plans. Very well done and informative.
Heather Cooke

Pat Kahlig

Thanks, I rented a car at Savmor, received your discount and picked up your great magazine in their lobby. We used it daily. We returned the car a couple hours late and the nice people at Savmor did not charge any additional fees. What a trip!

Dear Sirs: Thanks so very much for the tickets to "Viva Las Vegas". It was a great show which we enjoyed very much. Thanks again
Ralph Bender - Bowie, Md 20715

My husband and I have been to Las Vegas three times in the past two years and we really enjoyed your magazine on each trip. Just because it was in your magazine we decided to try some of the businesses you have advertised and WOW What a surprise, it made a great trip even better. Thank you for a quality magazine and web site.
Deb and Kurt, Toledo Ohio

Well, I have to admit it was fun. My husband says that what ever is in the Insider Viewpoint it will be good value and probably a lot of fun. When he told me he wanted to go shoot a machine gun I was about ready to shoot him. I stared at the advertisement in the Insider Viewpoint for about 10 minutes before I agreed to go with him. It was really awesome!!!! Not only did I have fun, I really learned about guns and why people own them.
Sally & Bill Walker, Chicago, IL

I took three of my relatives to Las Vegas earlier this year and had a great time. We stayed at the Goldstrike in Jean, about 20-25 minutes from Vegas. The rooms were very spacious and clean with a great desert view for only $21. Service was good, as was the food in the restaurants. I''ve stayed at the Goldstrike four times now, and have never had any problems.
Dave Young - Oakhurst, California

My husband and I love Las Vegas!! We married on June 17, 1996, in a wedding chapel located at the top of the Stratosphere Hotel and Casino. I recommend the Top of the World Restaurant in the Stratosphere for an ELEGANT dining experience. If you have not experienced Siegfried and Roy at the Mirage, you are missing the best show in town!! We enjoy getting you magazine online. It will keep us in touch with Vegas between trips!
Steve & Denishia Gentry, Paris, TX.

Stratosphere Hotel & Casino, is a great place to visit. The food at the restaurants and the service were great. The fantastic views from the tower cannot be matched anywhere in the world, the lights below are a real treat. Check out Roxy's restaurant, it is loads of fun.
Dale and Gail Beaman

Stayed at the Sahara and was pleased to be there. Very good buffets and did not have to wait on elevators. Easy to get downtown via trolley at Stratosphere. Also could take trolley on Strip right from Sahara. Pool looked inviting and Wet & Wild is next door for more water fun.

We stayed at the Monte Carlo and loved it. We were offered a suite for $99 but loved the regular room. It was all cherrywood furniture with a marble bathroom. After arriving played nickel video poker. Won $400 on the first machine. It dealt me a royal flush. Great way to start a trip. We really enjoyed the food at the brewery. It was a wonderful atmosphere.
Maryann - Bolingbrook, IL

Just wanted to thank you for the tickets we received for Viva Las Vegas while we were in Las Vegas. We really enjoyed the show, this was our second time to see the show and just as the first time we found it very entertaining and wanted our daughter to enjoy it as much as we did last year. Thanks again for getting them to our hotel in time for us to attend the 2:00 show. I'm sure when we return we'll go back to see the show again.
Roylene Mansfield

We recently spent 5 days at the Rio Suites and were EXTREMELY pleased, not only with the fact that we did win a few jackpots, but the treatment we received was excellent. The personnel were helpful and pleasant. We even were offered refreshments while we were waiting in the check-in line. The buffet is indescribable. You could eat their daily and never eat the same foods twice. The show "Madre Gras in the Sky" that is performed in the 4th tower casino is wonderful -- and best of all it's free AND you can walk away with free souvenirs, too. I can't think of any place I would recommend to stay more than the Rio Suites. The Rio is what Las Vegas is really about -- glamour, excitement, great food, and terrific people.
Terry Zastrow

Thank you so much for the tickets to viva las vegas. I had family visiting and it was great to take them all to a show and not cost anything. It was a great show and I wanted to say thanks for all you help and information. We had a great stay. Thanks,
Denise Seich

Thanks for the Viva Las Vegas tix. We really enjoyed the show. Haven't been to Vegas since the early 80's when the family went as tourists. Boy has it changed. Stayed at the Luxor and enjoyed the tower view. Our son took us for dinner at the top of the Stratosphere. Food was excellent but pricey and the view was awesome. Our son's Christmas gift to us was two tickets to the Johnny Mathis concert. Johnny as always was sensational. Thanks again and thanks also to the Vegas AOL board which was so helpful.
