Las Vegas, Nevada
Great tour with Jason as our tour guide. This is the tour you want if you want to see all of the dam including going down into the generator rooms. Jason was outstanding in keeping the group laughing while at the same time giving us pertinent facts about the building of the dam and its daily operation. Highly recommend this tour of the Hoover Dam.
Las Vegas, Nevada
First, let me say I am going to split my review. One of the booking company and tour operator and then the tour itself.
The tour company and bus operator need a bit of improvement. First, since the South Rim is the longest tour they do on any given day, they should come up with a way to get the people on that tour through their registration first. They need to be on the road first, not last as it is already a long day. The bus operator, separate from the tour operator should do away with the "mandatory McDonalds" stop in Kingman, Arizona. Seems all buses arrives within a few minutes of each other thus creating long lines at the counter. Pick other places than a McDonalds. And make certain you have enough buses to run the tour for all the people who had signed up for the tour. We had to wait about 30-45 minutes for a third bus to arrive at the departure terminal as they did not calculate how many buses they would need. This added to an already long day.
As for the tour itself, it is well worth going. Nothing is better than seeing the Grand Canyon from the South Rim. Do see the Imax movie. Great introduction to the canyon. Enough time was provided at the two stops on the South Rim to adquately view the canyon.
I would have given this tour a four star had it not been for the snags at the beginning of the tour. Long lines to register for the tour, and placing the longest tour of the day as the last to register. Also, for the bus tour operator for not assessing how many buses were needed and not having them ready. Otherwise, great tour.
