  • Fantastic Tour, Guide was brilliant, Funny and very knowledgeable
    The length of the tour was great and we did not feel rushed at all
    The Food at the restaurant was really nice and you get a choice
    The Museum was a great added bonus

  • The tour itself was pretty good. The tour guide Trevor was very knowlegable and full of anecdotes and very funny. Unfortunately on the day we wentSat the power plant was closed. This was the part of the tour I was most looking forward to, so that was very disappointing.

  • We had a group of 14 guests from Europe and Japan as well as our USA staff. Everyone had a great time learning the history and engineering accomplishment of the Hoover Dam. Seeing the power generation works was a highlight of the trip. Jason our tour guide was entertaining along the way. I would highly recommend this tour.

  • One of the best tours I've been on! Our guide Jason was awesome, never a dull moment. Length of the tour was just right too. Highly recommend doing this tour if you like a good laugh.

  • Jason and Rick were great! Best part of trip besides scenery! The dam elevator was broken and we couldn't go down to see it so that was a bummer! Food: good but not much variety- needs salads!

  • The tour guide,Jason,was the best we have ever had on any tours and would highly recommend it to anyone Jason the guide made the day he was funny and very knowledgeable.the only problem with the tour was the lifts going down into the dam where off line,this was what i was looking forward to doing the most to say the least I was very disappointed.

  • Very enjoyable and informative, must see tour. Trevor and Jason are a great act together very funny indeed.

  • Great tour--but could have done without the chocolate factory. Informative, and tour went very smoothly.

  • Jason was very informative and fun to be around he razzed the driver, Pedro, quite frequently. He knew so much about the area Vegas, Boulder City, Hoover Dam, etc.. I was just disappointed that we couldn't actually go on a tour of the dam. It wasn't available that day. That was kind of the whole point, so my wife and I could see the huge generators and everything. Besides that, having a bus drop you off and pick you up was a great convenience. Lunch was included as well so that was another plus. Overall, I would recommend this tour...it's a really fun time! :

  • A great way to spend part of your day in Vegas! Trevor our guide was informative and hilarious! The tour was punctual ,and seemed like a short ride to Hoover Dam. Our group was mainly retired folks ,but I think it would appeal to anyone. It was recommended people with pacemakers not gosomething about Hydroelectricity. Also people with claustrophobia ,and I would add not for handicapped,. The dam really is an engineering marvel that everyone should see.
