Good value! Price was good and tour was informative and covered all we wanted to see!
Our tour was GREAT. We had beautiful weather, around 70 - Mike our bus tour guide was really funny and entertaining. The tour at the dam was really good, very little waiting. The Lake Mead tour on the Paddle Wheel boat was lovely - just over an hour, nice and relaxing and great view of the dam and lunch hit the spot. While Ethel M's factory tour was quick - we were there for the 500,000+ holiday cactus lighting. It was OUTSTANDING. What a lovely walk through the garden at 4:30 when the lights came on, it truly was SPECTACULAR, made the stop there well worth it. Be prepared this is an all day trip - we were picked up at 9 and returned to our hotel at 5:30 - all well worth it.
PICKED UP FROM HOTEL ON TIME AND A GOOD PLANNED TOUR FROM START TO FINISH THANK YOU
It was spectacular, of learning about the dam construction and how much it helps to different states to take advantage of the energy generated there.
Fabulous memorable day with a superb driver/guide - EXCELLENT ++++++++ would highly recommend to others
My sister and I loved this tour..... other reviews complained about time at the dam but there was plenty of time to see it all and shop if you just put a little pep in your step .... we took tons of pictures and still have time to roam around the entire creation and head across into Arizona and be in two states at one time. We loved the way this tour was run it was simple to follow and our Tour Bus Driver (Mike) was very entertaining. The lake mead cruise was beautiful and lunch was satisfying. The Ethel M chocolate factory stop was just an added bonus and the stop at the Las Vegas sign was PERFECT since otherwise we probably would have had to pay a cab to get there and take a picture. Overall we would recommend this tour to anyone that wants to see the dam and lake mead in the same outing. it was GREAT esp for the value.
Our bus driver - Mike- was outstanding! He was an encyclopedia of information and funny too!
The tour of the dam finished with seeing the dam from the water with lunch is NOT to be missed! We Americans really knew how to build!
Great activity and highly recommended - It was a little windy (a few chairs blew around), but if you are going to take the dam tour, this gives you the other prospective as the cruise goes up to the dam on the other side offering a great relaxing / picture opportunity...
A great day trip. However, from the pick up time at 8am, it takes about 4 hours before you reach the dam. the stop off at the chocolate factory is not necessary and wastes time. The paddle steamer trip is enjoyable, but the "buffet lunch" isn't a buffet.
This tour was very well done. It was very informative - a good history lesson! Also quite interesting to be inside the tunnel and interior of the dam. The cruise was so relaxing and pleasant, it could have lasted all day! The views were beautiful! The bus trip was quite long seemingly at the end of the day, but of course, we were tired and ready for dinner and the night life of Vegas. It was good to be on the lake instead of just viewing the lake from the rim of the canyon.
