Christian our tour guide was great. Arrived on time and explained what was to happen in the tour. Cold water was at hand if you required. Counts Kustoms was the first stop, although called a VIP tour, it really isn't as all places are open to the public, this said, the guys working at each place knew Christian which helped. We were lucky to see Horny Mikes green van in the car park, you could go and take pics and get close to it. The van is amazing. Apparently we were lucky as it's only there 5% of the time. Inside Counts itself, it is very cramped. You get to see his cars they are so packed tightly in, that you can't get a decent pic of any of them. Overall, a good place to see. Next off to Ricks Restorations. Again, open to public, we got to see several guys from the show, Bretley, Tyler, Kowboy and several others. All were very friendly and Kowboy is like he on the show!
You get to go on a tour of the premises but you cannot take pictures as things that have not been on the show yet could be seen being restored. It's very hot inside the building, my advice, take some water.
Pawn Stars next, Christian mentioned that we were going to be lucky as there are usually a long queue to get inside the building, but as we were with his tour we would bypass the queue. When we got there, there was no queue at all! The store itself is quite good, you get to see several items from the show, you will find yourself in and out of the store in 10-15 minutes.
Toy Shack next, very small shop with items everywhere. Didn't get to see the owner, saw some really good things and was amazing to hear how much old toys can be worth.
Bonus stop was the Sports Memorabilia store (which by the way, is next to Toy Shack), the owner was there who the guys from Pawn Stars call for sports stuff. He was very informative.
Then we were going to go off to ATM but Christian, started to drop people off back to pick up points as you go past these on the way to ATM. By the time we got back to our Pick up point, it was already 5:30pm and there was no mention of Christian returning us back here, everyone was on the same thought as he was going to leave us at ATM, so 90% of the tour got off!
Overall a good tour and value for money.
