The entire trip was awesome~~great guide and driver, plenty of time for everything, and wonderful meal on the return trip~~wouldn't change a thing!
Wonderful tour 5 stars. Our tour guide and driver, Donkey and Shrek, were entertaining from the get go. There is not a boring moment from the time you board to until the end of the tour. Donkey is very knowledgeable about Hoover Dam and surrounding areas, would answer all questions asked and provide additional fun and interesting facts. He funny, witty and very friendly. He knows how to break the ice with the guests and breaks the ice between them. From the beginning he gets the guest interacting with each other making it a very pleasant tour. He also provided lots of tourist information about Las Vegas, things to do in the area that was very useful. I would definitely do another tour with Donkey and Shrek.
Great tour. Informative and entertaining. Would take this tour again!
I first saw the Dam in 1958 when I was 13. I must say that it is still impressive. Now that I am a little older, hopefully wiser and more knowledgeable; I have a much greater appreciation of the volume of work, time and labor that went into making this impressive structure. Amazing feat of construction considering the time (1931-1935) and methods used. It was a first visit by my wife, who couldn't get over the grandeur of it all, to say nothing of the sheer size. Our tour guide, Jodie, was knowledgeable, entertaining and funny; which made the trip a wonderful experience for the entire group. She also was most knowledgeable of other trips, casinos, entertainment and the like, in and around Las Vegas. Also a behind the scene applause for our bus driver (Alan?-I think?). Well done - Keep up the good work.

Our tour was the best! Jodi's knowledge of the dam area was very impressive. We will be back to do the Grand Canyon soon and hope we get her for it too!

Guide. Maria wonderful at the wheels.
Would defiantly recommend.
Was very nice and informative. We had plenty of time to see what we wanted to see
I really enjoyed the tour. Our guide Jason was very friendly and made sure I had a "buddy" as I was solo on the tour. I learned lot of things about Las Vegas and Boulder City in addition to things about the dam. I would recommend the tour toeveryone.
Twas very good, tour leader talkative and knew a lot of facts mostly accurate. Pick-up on time. Bus comfortable.
Great tour. The right amount of time spent at each stop. Jason, our tour guide was outstanding - very friendly, very informative, and kept the whole group laughing throughout the tour. Highly recommended.
We thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our tour. Tom (our driver) was very professional,
accomodating and very courteous. Jason - WOW - he was extraordinary!! Very knowledgeable,
very friendly, he knew the history throughout the entire tour. In addition, Jason kept us
entertained throughout the entire trip. Very well organized and coordinated. They kept the tour
moving along in a timely manner. My husband and I took my mother on this tour for her 78th
birthday and she thoroughly enjoyed it. I highly recommend this tour.
The Hoover Dam is nothing short of spectacular. Growing up seeing pictures does nothing to really make you understand the size of the dam, and the magnitude of the efforts made to create it. It is hard to believe that our country was once able to come together to produce something so immense and useful.
This was our first experience with the tour company, Viator, As such, I may not be qualified to review the company based on one experience. However, the tour guide was amazing. He was not only well informed, but he was entertaining. We learned a lot about the background and construction of the dam, how it is used today, its history as well as the history of the surrounding communities. He had a quick wit, and often had a joke ready to keep us entertained.
Based on one experience, I would choose Viator for other tours.
The Hoover Dam is not only spectacular and fascinating in its own right, but a profound symbol of what the country has, or had, been able to accomplish. Everyone should see it, and think about it.
The tour itself was very entertaining, with an informative, engaging, and hilarious tour guide. I'm very happy that a friend recommended this Viator tour to me.
The only slight negative about the tour, and probably a view in the minority, was that after seeing something as impressive and profound as the Hoover Dam, the stop at the Ethel M. chocolate store and tiny factory detracted from the experience. I kind of wanted to get back to where I was staying and think about what I'd seen.
