TOUR GUIDE VS. TOUR LEADER
Tour Guide
Often locals with intimate knowledge of an area, its culture, and history. Their role entails providing commentary, routing the tour, and seeing that people have a good time. They are a licensed, qualified expert who supplies specific information on history, art, architecture and culture of the city/village/attraction in which he or she is guiding the tour. The guide meets the group at the required place and leaves the group at the end of the tour, they do not travel with the group. 
 
Tour Leader
An experienced person tasked with ensuring the smooth operation of tours, as well as providing practical support to passengers throughout the whole trip. Their role primarily includes assisting with accommodation, transportation between locations, and communication with tour guides in each stop. A tour leader may provide general guidance around a city or village, and offer information on the place visited on the bus, however, they are not required to have specific knowledge on art, architecture, or history. They are not allowed to provide a guided tour or commentary of a city/village/attraction once there and if caught doing so, can be fined. 
 
Please note: Tour leaders/guides are not a standard inclusion in all travel offers. Tour leaders/guides will only be made available when particularly required to enhance the experience of the destination featured. 
 
CLIMATE & AVERAGE TEMPERATURES
Denver
- The biggest surprise for visitors to Denver is the climate. The arid conditions bring only 8 to 15 inches of annual precipitation and locals wake up to more than 300 days of sunshine a year. That’s more annual hours of sun than Miami and San Diego.
- In summer, Denver enjoys low relative humidity, making for beautiful, sun-filled days and cool, comfortable evenings. The average daily high temperature in August is a mild 30 degrees celsius. 
 
Las Vegas
- Located in the Mojave Desert, the Las Vegas climate is a hot desert subtropical climate that is characterised by arid and sunny conditions. In fact, Las Vegas weather is some of the sunniest in the world with an annual average of more than 3,800 hours or 300 days of sunshine, meaning there's almost never a bad time to visit Vegas.
- However the summer months of June, July and August can get extremely hot, with daytime highs typically reaching between 100F (37C) and 110F (43C), sometimes even hotter. Humidity is low which keeps conditions a little more comfortable in such high temperatures and night time lows still remain in the balmy high 80sF (30C).
- Autumn, from September to November and spring from March to May are wonderful times to visit as the days are warm and sunny, cooling in the evenings, making for rather comfortable conditions when it comes to being out in the desert. This is the perfect time for those wishing to enjoy outdoor activities such as golf or visiting the Grand Canyon.
