What a dam beautiful day!

Mr. Mike was the best driver/guide ever! With the heat being what it was, it was nice to have mini-stops to Lake Meade and the Dam. Both locations were ABSOLUTELY breathtaking.

So glad you had a great Hoover Dam Tour and enjoyed seeing Lake Mead too. Please visit another destination with us in the future. Thank you.

An Architectual Wonder
Romadaro
, Jul 2021
The dam itself is an architectual marvel, but as for this tour, I'd skip it and drive if you have a rental car. It's only about 45 minutes from Vegas and the Visitor Center is closed to tours and you can drive yourself around (which was what this "tour" consisted of), walk across the bridge over the dam, plus spend as much time as you like with no time limits. As far as Boulder City is concerned, there's a small museum that you can see in 30 minutes or less, which is all the time we were given, but that was it. Not worth the stop if you drive unless you're a history buff.

Thank you for your review. We are sorry that you did not appreciate the tour or historic Boulder City. Thank you for your feedback.

Pappy was an excellent tour guide who really wanted to make sure that we had a thorough understanding of what it took to build the Hoover Dam. He was a very patient tour guide who offers his expertise in the most unyielding manner and he was very patient and kind.

Did not have opportunity, to actually walk on the Hoover Dam instead of driving over it. Enjoyed tour for the most part. Clean bus.
icon Response from Host , May 2021
Thank you for your review. Our Hoover Dam Highlights Tour description explains that we do have excellent views of the Hoover Dam, and we do drive across it as well, along with Boulder City. When the Bureau of Reclamation once again allows tours inside the dam, we will also offer our Hoover Dam Exploration Tour with visits inside the dam and walking around it. We are glad you still enjoyed the tour for the most part, as you said.

Not What We Thought
Laura_L
, May 2021
I should have read the description of the tour carefully. We did see the Hoover Dam but the bus did not actually stop at the dam. We saw it from afar from various stops. The dam is spectacular but I was so disappointed that we didn’t actually get to walk across the dam. So close but so far. We also thought the stop in Boulder City was pretty lame. The driver, however, was wonderful.
icon Response from Host , May 2021
Thank you for taking time to write your review and for traveling with us. Because of COVID restrictions, the inside of the Hoover Dam is not offering tours. This is dependent upon the Bureau of Reclamation. This tour takes our guests over, around and above the dam, as well as to the Hoover Dam Museum in Boulder City. Most of our guests have very much enjoyed this tour and seeing the grand project of building the dam. I'm sorry it did not meet your needs as well as you thought. I'm glad you said our driver was wonderful. We hope to have you travel with us again to another destination.
