We enjoyed our trip with Randy from Big Horn tours, great information. NOT informed prior to pick up of very limited access into the turbine hall due to refurbishment taking place and lifts out of use, there wasn't enough time in the tour to allow for the queues to the lower levels. The earlier morning tours did have the access to the lifts and got the full access.

The trip did not get off to the best start as we were told the lifts at Hoover Dam were not working and we could not go inside which was very disappointing. Apart from that we had a great trip and enjoyed the experience. Our tour guide - Randy was an absolute wealth of knowledge on the Hoover Dam , Las Vegas, Boulder and the Mojave desert. He was a really friendly guy , made every feel at ease and made the trip memorable. It didn't take long to get to the Dam and we had plenty of time to explore and take photos. On the way back we stopped in Boulder City and saw the wild Big Horn goats. The ride in the Hummer was great and a very comfortable way to tour. I'd definitely recommend Big Horn Hummer Tours and this trip.

Excellent tour and our guide Scott was awesome. This tour is highly recommended. Scott had answers to all our questions. He provided us with "insider" information on getting into the tour quickly.

Really wasn’t sure what to expect, but it was wonderful.. Our guide Sean was very knowledgeable and very professional!! It was just the three of us which made it very nice and personal. I would highly recommend the tour group without any hesitation. Again our guide Sean was fabulous!

Our second time to book this tour. It’s great! Wondering if you should book this experience—-you SHOULD!

Our tour was the first tour to happen under the schedule to accommodate the elevator replacement. Brett was a great guide and even went on the tour down into the turbine room so he could let his company know of the changes taking place. What a great, relaxing way to tour the site. Brett picked us up in the Hummer, just the 2 of us on the tour, was very informative with details of the area, Boulder City, and the Dam construction, and ended the site visit with a walk on the new bridge for an unbelievable view of the dam. Avoid the group tours, this is the way you want to see Hoover Dam

My husband I booked the 4 hour Hummer Hoover Dam tour. Thomas Thomas , the Hummer operator/tour guide was very informative about Las Vegas and the Dam. Fun time . I would hire Big Horn tours again

This is the way you are supposed to be treated! It was awesome being picked up in a Hummer. Our tour guide Sean was very informative and a pleasure to be around. I highly recommend taking this tour. You will not be disappointed.

This was definitely worth the cost of the tour! My 9 year old son and I wanted to go check out the Hoover Dam, so I booked online before we left for Vegas. Our guide Tom picked us up at the hotel in the Hummer, gave us a great history of the area and the dam on the way, then gave us specific instructions on how to beat the crowds, where restrooms were, etc. After the tour, Tom was right there to drop us back off at the hotel. Strong recommendation!
