It was a very hot day but it was worth it. It is something my husband has always wanted to do. It was amazing the engineering that went into it. Very sad that the water has gone down so much in recent years

Waiting on refund. Think it's crazy they take your money and can't refund money right away. Maybe they shouldn't take money until you actually go

Lousy Unaccommodating Tour...
Daniel_M
, Jul 2021
We had a very negative experience. We were not told in advance that our tour would not include touring the interior of the dam. Our driver was moody and unprofessional. He unintentionally left two of the other attendees at a stop because he neglected to do a count. The bus was too crowded and our large family, which included small children, was forced to sit separately all over the bus as the service did nothing to accommodate our large party. They did not even encourage other passengers to wear masks on the bus during the pandemic. Skip this tour and just drive to the dam. It is easy to park and will not disappoint as this bus tour did.

This tour was OK. We were supposed to see the Las Vegas sign but our bus driver had the bus vote to see if we could skip it. We really wanted to make that stop and see the sign and it is supposed to be part of the trip. Never have I been on a tour and skipped something billed as part of the tour because the bus driver decided we didn’t have to do it. Also he was difficult to understand sometimes. I would choose a different company if I did this tour again.
