The drive to the dam was made lighter by the ‘stand-up’ comedy of our guide Jason. It’s amazing how that guy can talk! To be honest, it can get a ‘little old’ at times, but I suppose it beats a long, silent drive. The tour was very informational and very well organized. We really enjoyed it very much. Walking on the bridge overlooking the Dam was surreal! Even lunch was good!

This was a great tour from start to finish! We loved walking on the bridge! Trever answered all questions and did an awesome job. The meal was even better than expected! A great day!

This was a great tour but it was marred by a couple of unfortunate events. Firstly we did not get to go into the turbines. Most did not not know this until we were on the bus. 2 people actually got off. We decided to stay. There was another incident with a large group that disrupted the tour on a couple of occasions. It was well handled by the guide, but disruptive never the less. We really enjoyed the tour overall but it was extremely disappointing to miss the very part of the tour that influenced us to take this one (and pay extra for). Lesson learned!

An enjoyable day trip. Trevor, our guide, was pretty dam funny. The dam bus driver was excellent as well. The dam lunch was tasty and ready when we arrived. We even took a slight detour to see some dam big horned rams. Highly recommended. One thing to keep in mind - this is a government facility and being able to go inside the dam is sometimes difficult or the lines are long. Trevor knows the facility employees and we were escorted through the line. We also had time to explore on our own.

You pay the same price whether you get to tour the generator room or not. The rest of the tour was good. You would expect to get to do the full tour when you book a tour. My advice, rent a car and drive to the dam. Once there, you can buy a ticket to the base of the dam and the generator system. Keeping in mind, you may have a long wait in line to do this but you can. Since the line was too long, our dam tour did not go to the generator part of the dam.
