The dam was awesome. The bus ride was very nice. The line at the dam was bad. Needed more time at the Dam. The upgrade was a waste. Lunch and the casino was nothing special. Would have rathered to spend more time at the dam and eat lunch there. I assumed lunch was at the dam. Kinda disappointed

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2017

This trip is fantastic. We loved seeing the dam and hearing about the history - who knew how much work it would take to divert the original flow and actually build the dam? I hadn't realised it was during the Great Depression, so people from all walks of life were involved - literally crossing the country to get a job for the wages.
Just one thing - my husband was offered the 100 to have a helicopter flight over the dam by the coach company, but when we got to the Hoover Dam Lodge, the flights were on sale for 39.99. One of those little things you should know!

Excellent tour. Good value. A chance to understand the history of the dam. How and why it was built. A tour though the dam to see the turbines, as well as lots of photo opportunities from the viewing platform.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2017

What an amazing tour from beginning to end. Our tour shuttle from our hotel to the main staging area was prompt and comfortable. The guide who drove us to the Hoover Dam tour and on to the Lake Mead cruise was courteous, knowledgeable and humorous. The whole experience was incredible and I would highly recommend combining the Dam tour and the Lake Mead cruise because doing both of them affords you the opportunity to see the Hoover Dam from the front and the back! It puts this whole engineering marvel into perspective. Can't stress enough how important it is to have plenty of water we made our trip in August and it was REALLY hot but I would do it again in a heartbeat.
