    The title has it all, what a Hoot . Our guide was Trevor and he was amazing, not only entertaining, funny, but had facts and figures spilling out quicker than we could take it all in. This is the way to go, with so much fun the bus trip didnt seem a drag, definitely the way to see the dam.

    The tour was great. Trevor kept everyone entertained and has a large collection of facts about the Hoover Dam and the new Memorial bridge.
    I can't remember the bus driver's name, but he and Trevor were made to be together on these trips. Both have wonderful personalities.
    Hoover Dam is definitely an engineering feat and worth seeing a number of times.

    We cannot imagine touring the Hoover Dam any other way! It was so much fun and we learned so much. Trevor was brilliant! We never knew there are so many facinating aspects that went into the planning, construction and dynamics of the workers, many who dedicated their lives to the project. It was an added bonus to visit the museum at the Boulder Hotel and the Ethel M. Chocolate factory! Lunch was delicious and we were able to relax a bit. Trevor also knew so much about Vegas history and had knowledge about all of the hotels, restaurants and performers. I've already recommended it to many friends. If you're going on a Dam tour make sure it is this one! You won't be bored!!

    Victor did a great job! Everything went without a hitch. We were to be at the north door of our hotel at 7:30 am on the prescribed day. Our tour guide arrived at the north door at 7:30. Just like it was supposed to. We stopped at the other hotels, picked up our people and off we go. Just like it was supposed to be.
    Our guide was extremely knowledgeable, not just about the Dam but with the area, and the history. We found him to be both interesting and funny. Quite enjoyable. He was there if we needed something and made sure that everyone knew what they were to do and when to be where. We really had a good time and it's so much more worth it by being "guided" than to try and do it on your own. I would highly recommend the tour. It was fun, and THAT'S what it's all about.
