I've just booked a Grand Canyon tour and received a warning from the tour company not to eat at a buffet in Las Vegas before I go on the tour as they do not give refunds if you cancel within 48 hours because of food poisoning. Is this realistic? I have booked the tour for my 3rd day in Vegas and would have liked to have tried a buffet before that, but I guess I can't now.
On a similar note, are the buffets really worth it, given some of them seem pretty expensive - and the cheap ones doesn't necessarily get good reviews? I'm thinking of trying one breakfast buffet and one dinner buffet while I am in Vegas just so I can say I've done it - the fact that I'm visiting Vegas alone means I don't particularly want to spend a long time in restaurants alone so other days will be happy to grab breakfast from Starbucks. I'm staying in the MIrage so will read the separate posts about buffets but if anyone wants to recommend a buffet or let me know if they are worth it please feel free!
