only fault was it we where pushed for time between the tour finished and getting on the bus to get to lake mead for the lunch cruisewe had about 10 minutes between the tour finishing and getting on the bus, could have really done without the stop at the chocolate factory
I was in LV on short 4-days vacation with my friend. I always wanted to visit Hoover Dam, since I was a kid and this tour made a great experience. After checking few tours, we decided to do this one, cause the cruise was included. The whole tour was awesome, Dam visit, cruise and Chocolate factory. All in all my friend and I were really satisfied on the end. I can't remember the driver's name, he was awesome and fun and informative. Would recommend this tour as great way to do 3 things in one day :)
tour guide/bus driver was terrific!!
the boat tour was an ok standard... terrific on information and history,
but the food was inadequate we thought
This was my third time to tour the Hoover Dam. We were picked up at our hotel and returned upon completion of the tour which lasted for 8 hours. The coach driver was very courteous, extremely knowledgeable about the area, and an excellent driver. I am thankful that I was once again able to tour the Dam and the new bridge. It was an exciting tour. After touring the Dam, we went on the Lake Mead Cruise. The cruise was very relaxing and the lunch provided was very good. All in all, it was a wonderful experience and we would probably repeat the tour and the cruise when back in Las Vegas.
Superb value for money! So what if you have to transfer onto another coach?! Las Vegas sign, Hoover Dam, Lake Mead cruise, lunch which was actually tasty we thought, choc factory and cactus gardens for less than £60?! Bargain! Plus our driver, James, was a legend. Thank you! We loved it!!
The tour started with a very informative bus driver who picked us up at the appointed time and appointed place. There were people that were going on three different tours on our bus. We were taken to a local office of the tour company and divided into our individual tour group. The process was very efficient and very quick. The staff there were informative and quick. We boarded our tour bus and headed for the day long Hoover Dam, Lake Meade and Ethel M tour package. The same efficiency that I saw at the tour office was present at each turn in the tour. The dam was awesome. The Lake Meade boat ride had a nice slow down from the dam tour. The boat was fun, the food good and the tour of the lake near the dam very informative. By the time we arrive at Ethel M's were a somewhat tired. That stop was short, but allowed plenty of time to see the shop, the gift area, purchase some goodies and tour an amazing cactus garden.
My wife and I enjoyed this tour very much! It was great to get away from the crowds in Las Vegas and enjoy the countryside. Our bus driver, Darrell, did a great job and had everyone laughing the entire trip. Hoover Dam was very impressive and the Lake Mead boat tour was just the right amount of time. Everyone was very friendly and went out of their way for us. Highly recommend this tour!
Great tour, had a wonderful time. The Hoover Dam part could use another 1/2 hour to walk around. The boat ride was good. Pick up and drop off was easy. Friendly people running the tour.
Excellent guide Spencer, great fun and very, very informative, the vision of controlling the great Colorado river was amazing.
This was a very interesting trip. We really enjoyed every aspect of this trip and we are planning to come back again in the very near future. Tour bus driver was very nice and talked to everyone and gave us very informative information. Over all we would recommend this trip to all of our friends.
The tour was fantastic. Our guide gave us lots of history info and general Vegas info that I wish we had had the first day we were there. The cruise was good and well worth the time. Will do it again if I ever go to Vegas.
Would thoroughly recommend this trip to anyone. Very well organised and informative. The bus driver was accomadating and pleasant. Amazing scenery that I only have seen in pictures. The only thing I will say against it is that there wasn't enough time at the Hoover Dam. The cruise on Lake Mead was relaxing and memorable :)
I am an electrician, and have always wanted to visit the inner workings of the generator/electric plant of Hoover Dam. I saw how the dam was built several years ago on the History Channel and was very impressed. I have finally seen one of the points of interest that has enthused me for a long time. Thank you for the grand tour.
