We were lucky enough to be the one only couple in our Hummer. Tom our tour guide was excellent. We got lots of information about Las Vegas, the surrounding area and the Hoover Dam, it was a very cool experience. The dam tour itself was great. We had lots of time to have a good walk around the place and take lots of photos. We are really pleased we took the time to book this tour.

A great trip with Antonio our driver giving us lots of information about Las Vegas and the surrounding area plus of course info about the Hoover Dam. Stopped for us to go up on the new by-pass bridge to take photos down to the dam. Great tour inside the dam as well. Another wonderful trip to remember.
