Our guide Greg was excellent and very knowledgeable. The tour van that they used was very well apportioned with nice leather captains chairs for all. Pickup was right on time.
The guide did a good job. He gave us a good review of the history of the area and the construction of the dam.
Alvin our guide was wonderful and knew a lot of the local history and US history surrounding the Hoover Dam.
We learned a lot! Plenty of time to explore and enjoy. We did not feel rushed.
Would go again!
Our guide was knowledgeable, personable and very nice. The tour itself was very informative. Thanks!
Erwin was very friendly and knowledgable on the tour as well as very patient and willing to take photos for the tourists on board. Highly recommend!
Our tour guide, Alvin, picked us up promptly at the hotel and gave us a verbal history of Las Vegas as we headed to the Hoover Dam. He was very accommodating during the entire morning. The Hoover Dam is definitely a “must see” attraction while in the area. Simply amazing. I wish we had had time for the longer tour. We took the 4 hour morning tour and round trip it ran about 4.5 hours. Highly recommend!
Good trip with lots of information. Greg is very knowledgeable about numerous aspects of Hoover Dam and the surrounding communities. He also included the role of women and African Americans in the building of the dam. Just enough time with the heat.
Awesome day. Pick up and drop off from hotel was great. Our guide was extremely knoledgeable and friendly.
What a wonderful experience!! Our guide from start to finish kept the party informed on every aspect of the tour. The Hoover Dam did not disappoint. The facts and figures regarding the Dam are staggering considering the all the work was carried out in the 1930's
Would advise anybody to visit the Hoover Dam. .
This tour was perfect for a half day tour very informative and plenty of time to take pictures.
Our tour guide, Tony, was great. He gave us information about the area on the way to the Dam, as well as when we got there. We made 2 stops for pictures before we got to the Dam.He dropped us off right at the entrance and got the tickets for us. It was nice to be in a small group. We had plenty of time to take the power plant tour, then wander around to look at the exhibits and the museum. Just the right amount of time. Make sure to choose the moring tour. The afternoown traffic getting in was backed up forever.
I recommend this tour. Pickup and drop off right at hotel made it easy.
Jim, our tour guide was excellent and Hoover Dam is an amazing site to behold. The only confusing part is that we were waiting for Viator to pick us up, and Jim was out there in a G tour van. We sat for 20 minutes waiting for Viator when they called and told us that G tour would be picking us up. Why didn't they tell me that when they called to confirm tour?
Great trip to the Hoover Dam, Tommy our driver was a mind of information his knowledge of the dam and surrounding areas was second to none.
Fantastic tour and such great value! Our tour guide Tony struck the perfect balance between informative and laid back, so we got just the right amount of time to explore independently and enjoyed his extensive knowledge throughout the journey to the Hoover Dam! Would recommended to everyone!
The trip was great. Our tour guide/driver was very knowledgeable and friendly. The video played on the ride over to the dam was a great way to get familiar with the dam as well. The tour was great, getting to go down and see the generator rooms and walk the halls of the dam was a great experience. Overall, it was well worth the time and money. I would definitely recommend. It was especially nice that they picked up/dropped off right at our hotel, no need to rent a car or anything.
