Who's Ben?

In the 1980's, Mike "Ben" Namey started Ben's Tours with the vision of luxurious yet affordable getaways for gamblers of all kinds to Las Vegas and Atlantic City.  


These trips quickly became well loved by people all across Western Pennsylvania and beyond and Ben's larger than life personality endeared him to his loyal customers. He was truly one of a kind.


Through several health setbacks in the 1990's and early 2000's Ben continued to have an active role in the business, both in everyday operations and as a group escort on the trips. With his health setbacks in mind, he began mentoring his grandson John in 1994 to take over the business. Since Ben's death in 2003, John continues to carry on his vision.
