Trevor was great dam guide! He was very well informed, he gave us all kinds of information throughout the whole dam tour and kept us laughing constantly. Gary, the dam tour bus driver was excellent as well. This is THE tour to take!

What an amazing trip. We were well looked after during the day and this was such a well organised tour. Don't have anything bad to say about it. This is a must see and make sure you add the power plant part of the tour as this is a great addition. Special shout out to our tour guide Jason as well. This man kept us amused all day with his brilliant anecdotes. Loved this tour from start to finish.

Although we began our day early, it was necessary to do all the things that were included in the tour. Our guide was knowledgeable, flexible, and quite humorous. He was able to adjust the order of stops, and add some stops to the tour to accommodate the group. We stopped for lunch on the way back, and although it was a set number of choices, our guide was able to make changes in the menu for some of the guests. Overall, an excellent day.

This tour was very well organized. Since my hotel was not one of the pick up points, I used Uber to make my way to Bally's, where I met Jason, our tour guide, and Gary our driver. Both were very professional and pleasant to be with during the day. After picking up our other stops, we made our way to Hoover Dam with Jason explaining points of interest on the way. Once there, we had the opportunity to see the dam from the bridge above. What a sight to behold. Once returning to the bus, we made our way down to the dam, travelled over to the Arizona side and then returned to the garage at the Hoover Dam. Jason gave us much information about the dam with our walk along the top of the dam and then guided us to the elevators that took us down to the pumping stations. Once that was completed, and we had ample time to check out the gift shop, we met up with Jason again. He gave us cards which had our choices for lunch. We then made our way to the lunch destination and had a very nice lunch. All in all it was a great day and Jason made the travel more enjoyable by sharing his knowledge of the area.

“Taz” was our tour guide and he was amazing! He made this trip worth every penny we paid for it! He was full of information that we never would have gotten by going there on our own and his humor was fun and spot on!!! Thanks for a great day we will never forget!!! I would recommend this tour to anyone!!!

Awesome sight from the new bridge. It was so great to see the internal workings of the dam ... especially for my boyfriend who enjoy every minute of the tour.

This was a great tour! The guide Trevor kept us entertained the entire trip. I could not have been more satisfied
• Submitted 16 Dec 2019
Our tour guide was maybe the best part. He was hilarious and extremely knowledgeable. We learned so much more about Nevada and Arizona than just the Dam. Not only that but when we got to the Dam I didn't have to spend 3 hours reading every plaque because I already heard it from Trevor (tour guide). Don't skimp on the price and decide to so it without this company. I promise you it is worth every penny.

Jason, my tour guide of the Ultimate Hoover Dam was wonderful. Personable, funny, entertaining and knowledgeable. He made the trip fun and easy to become acquainted with the other people on the tour. The Hoover Dam was spectacular and the tour of the inside was very informative.

I've been wanting to visit Hoover Dam for awhile, and this is a great day trip to experience. Trez was a great tour guide. He was not only super informative but hilarious. Just wish I had a little more time to explore Hoover Dam.

Our guide Trez was so engaging that the time just flew by. He was very informative, as well as funny. I'm very glad I booked this tour.

My friends and I had a fun day trip to the dam. Our tour guide Trever (aka Travis!) was very knowledgeable and entertaining. He gave us time to explore the bridge and dam on our own then met up with the group to give us some interesting facts that you wouldn't get when traveling on your own. Kirkland was an amazing driver who took good care of us. We took some extra stops on the trip to the famous Welcome to Vegas sign and some big horn rams. This trip was a much needed get away after a few days on the strip.

I would recommend this tour. Trever (Trez) was funny and very informative. Gary the bus driver was very helpful getting off the bus since I'm prone to falling. No falls this time. Yeah.
