Jason and Steve were great and very entertaining! The dam itself was very interesting. Got to walk out on the bridge for great photos. Sit down lunch at a cafe was good. Highly recommended!

Interesting tour. Lots to see so it was a bit rushed. It would have been nice to have an extra hour to see everything at a more leisurely pace. Lunch was very good. Our guide, Jason, kept us entertained and gave us a lot of information about the area during the bus ride.

Very organized, thorough and entertaining! Our guide Jason was knowledgeable and helpful. We were able to do something we have always wanted to, and we could relax while someone else did the driving.

Definitely more interesting to visit than it appears in pictures. The generator room tour is worth seeing! I was concerned about the 70 second elevator ride and claustrophobia warnings, but the guide keeps you distracted in the elevator and the walkways are all wide and breezy.

One of the most interesting tours I have been on. Ever. Jason and driver Gary were a great team. Fun, informative and, for Gary, a very capable driver. I learned so much and laughed a lot.

We really enjoyed this tour with driver Steve and host Trez/Trever from Comedy on Deck Tours. They kept us entertained throughout the day and were very knowledgable about the Hoover Dam and the Las Vegas area and were happy to answer any questions. We would definitely recommend this tour to anybody and the only thing we could suggest to make this tour even better would be to include a cruise on Lake Mead and spend less time in the generator/plant rooms as there isn't much to see.
