The actual tour of the Hoover Dam was fine, and our tour guide was great. However, NONE of the extra’s advertised by Viator were actually included. There was no stop at the sign, no museum, and certainly no ticket vouchers. What a huge disappointment.

Good combination of humor and information. History is very interesting and the overall visual impact is significant.

The tour was great. Trevor did a great job. Kept is steady and easy and funny along the way. Only about 15 of us on the van which allowed us to ask questions and connect with others on the tour. Would recommend this tour.

Our tour guide Trevor was great but we could have stopped after the Hoover Dam tour instead of going to a bunch of places that probably paid to be on the tour. Everyone was bored after we left the dam. No need to see a chocolate factory where nothing was happening and was just a reason to have people shop in their store, or a museum in an old town where nothing was happening and was just a reason to have people shop in their store, or eat lunch at a restaurant when everyone just wanted the tour to end.

Good day, excellent tour of the Hoover Dam area. Learned a great deal about this engineering marvel. Tour guide was very good and it was a good day spent away from the hustle and bustle of Las Vegas.

Excellent. Was told a mini van would pick us up. It was a small bus so very happy about that. Very comfortable. Arrived on time. Jason was the star of the show. Oh yeah and Hoover Dam was nice too. lol
Everything was organized and up to par.
