I am SO glad we took this trip. It was very well organized and timely. The trip to the Hoover Dam was amazing. When you see the presentation and then visit the dam, it is truly awe inspiring to think how much was accomplished in a time when there were so few "power" tools. The engineering masterminds who created the dam were genius. And the men who actually did the building had to be fearless.
The Lake Mead cruise was wonderous. What a landscape!
If there was a downside, it was getting picked up, then going to a central point to board the individual buses to go on your specific tour. That seemed to take up precious time--I would have like more time at the dam
this tour was amazing. My husband and I were celebrating our 2nd wedding anniversary and i decided to surprise him with this tour. When I told him about it he wasn't that excited (he's not the touristy type) but as soon as we got there he was amazed and loved every minute of it, I think he loved it even more than I did haha. We also loved the boat cruise around Lake Mead it was beautiful and breath taking and very relaxing, the lunch on the cruise was good too. After we went to the chocolate factory (yummy) and watched as they were making a 1 pound snickers bar (very cool), then we took a walk around the botanical garden and they had all kinds of cactus plants.
I definitely would recommend this tour to everyone.
We had a great day at Hoover Dam and then the cruise along Lake Mead. Starting with the tour bus driver Spencer who was very informative and friendly, and the rest of the day just got better!! Highly recommend this tour. Wonderful day.
Very informative and fun throughout the whole tour. The bus driver "Spencer" was phenomenal! We are from Miami, Fl and we never thought this tour would be so adventurous. My husband and I loved it. It is worth every penny. We highly recommend this tour to anyone.
Great experience! Tour guide had lotsof information about the dam and Lake Mead, but also gave us a better understanding of Las Vegas..its people and its economy. Educational and funny..unbeatable. Dam experience was as expected. The Lake Mead paddleboat was a treat. We got a view from "the other side"! It was a relaxing trip with a bit of education added. Lunch was tasty..sandwich and pickle, chips, drink..maybe a cookie? Great way to spend the day in Las Vegas area. We got money saving--vacation improving tips from our guide. Take this tour!
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed this trip,we were picked up at our hotel The Venetian on time.It was a little messy having to go to the exchange depot to get the right coach,which was handled efficiently enough.Once we got going the driver was very friendly and his jokes were dam good.The Dam was amazing and the tour very interesting,it reached all our expectations.Then off to Lake Mead for the cruise.This was very relaxing but far too hot to sit on deck the food was nice.The stop at the chocolate factory was disappointing,the factory was closed so didn't see production and the chocolates were very expensive.We were dropped off at our hotel and showed our appreciation to the driver.This was a very enjoyable day and we would definitely recommend this tour.
This tour was a bit stretched for time, would have liked to had more time at the Hoover Dam but some needed to be dropped at Boulder (thought this was a seperate tour), and we had to wait around for the cruise, lunch was very basic and the cruise having no commentary seemed to go forever.
