Limiting pick-ups and traveling on one bus allows us to save time and get back early. It can take hours to pull in and out of every hotel.

Our guide Trevor and bus driver Margaret were excellent. We had a little delay due to a mechanical issue with the bus but a replacement bus was delivered quickly. Highly recommend this tour!

“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!!!

This was a great tour! The guide Trevor kept us entertained the entire trip. I could not have been more satisfied

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.

We were going to go to Hoover Dam on our own originally. I am so glad we decided to take this tour. Our tour guide, Jason, was very knowledgeable and funny. We got the official tour through the Dam then even more information from our tour guide. Lunch was included. There were several different choices and were able to sit down and enjoy lunch. I would highly recommend this tour!
