A visit to America's UFO capital: Area 51 Day Tour

If 10 seasons of the X-Files taught us anything it’s that a) no good ever comes of not turning the lights on when you enter a building, and b) that the truth is out there. With this fun, fascinating and unashamedly geeky day-long tour you’ll finally get to visit ‘there’ for yourself – driving along the ‘Extraterrestrial Highway to visit a host of sites at the heart of America’s UFO capital. Led by a knowledgeable guide – who knows just how far civilians can venture – you’ll see mysterious desert pictographs, the site of the infamous ‘Black Mailbox’, and stop for lunch at the world-famous Little A’le Inn before visiting the perimeter of Area 51 itself. Although the US Government has denied the existence of this military base for years, you can wave at the heavily armed guards patrolling – just don’t expect them to wave back!
