Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Pass By: The Strip, S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89109

We proudly offer a designated bus driver (for safety) and step-on tour guide (for entertainment and information). Our drivers do not double as tour guides.

Start your tour with pickup from select Las Vegas hotels and we don't take you to a central location to reload onto a different bus. You will go out on the bus you were picked up in. Limiting pick-ups and traveling on one bus allows us to save time and get back early. It can take hours to pull in and out of every hotel. By limiting pick-ups to 7 we are usually the first bus company to Hoover Dam. En route, your guide entertains and answers questions Hoover Dam, its history and/or the Las Vegas area.

(This portion is not guaranteed; it can be closed a few days each year by the Department or Reclamation due to security or repairs issues. If it is the sole reason you are going tot he dam we recommend you call the dam and check the day prior to your tour.)

Our guide Trevor and bus driver Margaret were excellent. We had a little delay due to a mechanical issue with the bus but a replacement bus was delivered quickly. Highly recommend this tour!

“Taz” was our tour guide and he was amazing! He made this trip worth every penny we paid for it! He was full of information that we never would have gotten by going there on our own and his humor was fun and spot on!!! Thanks for a great day we will never forget!!! I would recommend this tour to anyone!!!

Our tour guide was maybe the best part. He was hilarious and extremely knowledgeable. We learned so much more about Nevada and Arizona than just the Dam. Not only that but when we got to the Dam I didn't have to spend 3 hours reading every plaque because I already heard it from Trevor (tour guide). Don't skimp on the price and decide to so it without this company. I promise you it is worth every penny.

trez was friendly and knowledgeable and funny as hell, and kirkland was very kind and a great driver. they made sure we got to see the famous las vegas sign on our way out, and trez was patient and expert about getting great shots of the whole group in front of it. the tour itself was organized and efficient, and what i thought was gonna be kinda boring turned out to be really interesting and even exciting. lunch on the way back was extremely tasty too! i highly recommend doing this tour if you have the time; it’s worth every penny!

My wife and I have taken dozens of tours, this was, by far, the worst. First, the tour company picked us up 45 minutes late. When the bus finally arrived the guide said we were lucky that another driver decided to come into work because the scheduled driver did not. The guide said that if the driver had not shown up, all of us on the tour 'would have been screwed'. That's a nice way to run a company, I guess.
Our guide was horrible. He admitted to being a stand up comedian, so he spent 85% of the tour working on his material rather than being a guide for the Hoover Dam. Some of the jokes were offensive (I do not consider jokes about asian people or date rape funny). When we finally made it to the Dam, he walked us around various areas first before we were actually able to go into the vistor's center and visit the dam. At that point, it was 11:45am. We were schedule to be picked up at 7:45. Therefore, it took 4 hours into our 6 hour tour before we even were 'at' the Hoover Dam.
Yes, we stopped for a nice lunch but that was at 2:30. A little late for me. We were scheduled to return to Vegas between 2:30-3:00. We got back at 4:15. I feel like we wasted an entire day in Vegas on this stupid tour.
