Excellent trip and tour. The driver did a great job of driving and interacting with us. Due to time we took the express trip. We had enough time to see what we wanted to see. Thank you for the great tour.

This tour took all the stress out of visiting Hoover Dam! Picked us up right in front of our hotel, driver asked for us by name. Stopped at the famous Vegas sign, and took us to the tour. Easy to book online, no headache! Would definitely use them again!

Great drive out to Hoover Dam. Saw some great scenery and drove through Boulder City which was good. Would not recommend doing the tour when you get there though, as you only go down through the plant underneath the Dam. By the time you go through security, see the video, line up and then finish the tour you have to get straight back on the bus for the drive to Las Vegas. We literally had to run for the bus. Didn't have any free time to take photos etc. of the rest of the dam which had some great views which we only saw from the bus. Would be much better to walk around and look yourself, unless of course you are interested in the underground workings of the dam.
