This trip was well organized with pick up at our hotel at the time stated. Peter was our guide and he was great! Lots of inside stories that you wouldn't hear if you traveled on your own. We felt a little rushed at the Hoover Dam, we had to wait a half hour for the movie to start and didn't have a lot of time to look thru the exhibits. I don't feel it was Pink Jeep's fault as they aren't allowed inside. Once done inside, Peter continued his part of the tour walking on the dam and exploring. We had a wonderful experience and truly enjoyed the Dam from the boat, it wasn't a long ride but gave a different perspective of the Dam. Thank you Pink Jeep and Peter for a memorable trip.

Brilliant trip all round! Our transport arrived on time and tour guide, Chris, was excellent. Friendly and amusing without being OTT, he was very knowledgeable and informative throughout the whole journey and obviously fitted in as much as possible in the time allowed. The Hoover Dam was awesome and we were well impressed both inside and out. The river float was fun and enjoyable. It's not a rafting trip (we hadn't expected that after reading other reviews) but it did last at least half an hour and we saw the dam from a completely different and wow factor perspective. We enjoyed the trip so much that on our return we booked another tour later in our holiday to Zion Park - also brilliant!

My family and I (two adults and two grandparents) really enjoyed this tour. It was so great to have the smaller group aspect. There were a lot of people at the dam in bigger coach tours, but I think ours was much more relaxing. The ride in the SUV was very comfortable, the dam is fantastic and the raft ride on the river was short but fun!

The pick up is been in perfect time, the suv is really luxury and we had complimentary water and snakes. The way to go to the river is been spectacular, trought the desert. The ride on the river is been fantastic, it is a good way to admire the impressive size of the dam. Then the tour in the machinery room in the dam is been very interesting.

I would recommend this trip with Pink Jeeps without hesitation. Bob our guide did an excellent job, as did the guides on the river and in the dam. There was no waiting around, it all went like clockwork. The dam is a magnificent tribute to human ingenuity.

This trip was absolutely excellent. Really impressive sights both from the dam and from the river. Have to say a big thanks to Gerry our driver/guide as his commentary and knowledge of the area really made some of the facts come alive. Definately 5 star.

We were picked up the Pink Jeep Company, which were fantastic. The trip took about an hour, driving through Boulder City which is small and where gambling is illegal. Our driver gave us history of the area and what the families went through for the build of the dam. We went inside to see part of the power plant where 7 large generators are used to power the electricity for Vegas. The power plant is 7 stories underground. The wall of the dam is huge - really huge. You do not realise how big the whole dam structure is until you are in the boat on the river. The river boat ride was about 15 minutes, but a must as they explain how the gates hold back the water as the dam was being built and their role today. This is where you get an appreciation of the technology back in 1935 which was advanced for its time. The Hoover Dam Tour is a must if you are going to Vegas

This excursion was top notch with the pink jeep that is comfortable and roomy and comfortable for whether you need AC or not depending on the weather. They pick you up at your hotel which is an added treat. The guide was great and joined our group as one of our own. Very knowledgable and shared information about the canyon, Red Rock Canyon, and other questions our group asked. The trek up the mountain road was great. So many places to stop and take pictures and learn about the land and the Grand Canyon. Highly Recommended!
