Our driver was excellent and made the trip enjoyable. The trip could not have gone any smoother. Keep up the good work.
Though the morning trip was canceled, they communicated well in advance of the rescheduled afternoon trip. They are well organized. The narration of the information of the Hoover dam and the background history was good. The driver was professional and hilarious. I highly recommended them. If they could increase the tour time for the dam and overpass bridge, it would be great.
I highly recommend this tour. It gives you enough time to enjoy the dam and still get back to Vegas for the evening. We had a great time and learned a lot. We couldn't go inside the dam because they're doing work, but our driver made sure we had extra stops to make up for it.
We had a great trip. Loved the dam and the bus tour is the way to go. Lots of great information about the construction and history of the Hoover Dam.
Tony our driver was excellent!! He made sure to explain everything so that we had a good visit a hoover Dam.
Truely amazing place to visit. A great achievement which will last hundreds of years. A must visit place if you are in the area. Our driver was also very helpful with useful information.
Awestruck by the size of this structure. No wonder its Americas most visited attraction.
Our tour guide, Felix was amazing. He was very kind and courteous! I highly recommend this tour.
The dam was awesome. The bus ride was very nice. The line at the dam was bad. Needed more time at the Dam. The upgrade was a waste. Lunch and the casino was nothing special. Would have rathered to spend more time at the dam and eat lunch there. I assumed lunch was at the dam. Kinda disappointed
My tour was awesome. The driver was very nice and the ride was comfortable. My mother thoroughly enjoyed herself. We learned a lot and the experience was one that I will always remember fondly.
Fantastic staff lots of interesting information about the dam fantastic coach with a driver who was very funny definitely worth every minute
Excellent tour. Good value. A chance to understand the history of the dam. How and why it was built. A tour though the dam to see the turbines, as well as lots of photo opportunities from the viewing platform.
This trip is fantastic. We loved seeing the dam and hearing about the history - who knew how much work it would take to divert the original flow and actually build the dam? I hadn't realised it was during the Great Depression, so people from all walks of life were involved - literally crossing the country to get a job for the wages.
Just one thing - my husband was offered the 100 to have a helicopter flight over the dam by the coach company, but when we got to the Hoover Dam Lodge, the flights were on sale for 39.99. One of those little things you should know!
What an amazing tour from beginning to end. Our tour shuttle from our hotel to the main staging area was prompt and comfortable. The guide who drove us to the Hoover Dam tour and on to the Lake Mead cruise was courteous, knowledgeable and humorous. The whole experience was incredible and I would highly recommend combining the Dam tour and the Lake Mead cruise because doing both of them affords you the opportunity to see the Hoover Dam from the front and the back! It puts this whole engineering marvel into perspective. Can't stress enough how important it is to have plenty of water we made our trip in August and it was REALLY hot but I would do it again in a heartbeat.
The tour and cruise were both excellent. It was nice to have transportation to both. It was a great introduction and provides a foundation for future trips.
It was an amazing tour and sight to see. The guide was very knowledgeable and we learned a lot.
Our bus driver was also knowledgeable and very pleasant.
Really enjoyed the tour at the dam. Definitely a sight to see. Tour was very informative.
This tour was great, I cant recommend it highly enough! I was travelling with my partner who is confined to a wheelchair. We were initially worried about access to the transport, but the company couldn't have been more helpful and the coach was fully equipped with a lift so he could get in still in his chair. The guide on the bus and the hoover dam tour was really informative and fun. The dam really is amazing to visit, a real engineering marvel.
We also went on the Lake Mead cruise which was lovely, providing excellent views of the lake and the dam. Though there was no access for the wheelchair to the top deck of the boat, there was plenty of room at the bow and stern of the vessel for us to enjoy the sunshine and the view. In all, an excellent day out!
