5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2016

This is great Tour to get if you want to get away from the Las Vegas fast life style for half a day. Amazing tour from beginning to end. Several landmark stops that will not disappoint, from the historic Welcome to Las Vegas sign and for a couple of extra dollars you can upgrade to a lunch buffet at a legendary casino and a chocolate factory tour. Don't miss out on this great tour.

We were picked up at our hotel on time. The bus to the dam was comfortable, the driver was fun and had lots of information about the area and the dam. I would definitely recommend taking this trip.

Amazing what the workers at the time built with the conditions they worked in and for only 4 dollars a day what an accomplishment.

We had the express tour. Very good tour guide. Very knowledgeable and funny. Was just the right length for us. If you want to see Hoover Dam and don't want to spend a whole day, this is the ticket. I recommend this one.

Had a fantastic day from start to finish. Comfortable coach, Hilarious driver, Eric, who was SO knowledgeable. Brilliant! Only criticism was that we were waiting to be picked up and a coach was sat there but the driver didn't get off to tell us it was our coach. There was noting on the coach to identify it as ours and there is a LOT of traffic coming and going from outside the strip hotels. moan over!
