Engineering marvel
, Feb 2020
Great excursion from Las Vegas I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking to see this engineering marvel. And today you actually get to see 2 for the price of one as the Hoover Dam and the bypass bridge.

Amazing tour! Tour of inside the dam was awesome. Had lunch afterward. On the way back the driver stopped so we could see some big horn sheep. Loved the experience!

The tour that has no tour. You would think the operator would be in contact with Hoover Dam to make sure everything is working.... e.g the lifts that are necessary to enter the dam
Will A Refund Be Coming?

We arrived at the Dam at ~11:15AM, the Bus Driver gave us our tour tickets and told us we had to be back at the bus by 12:30PM. Even though I went directly from the bus to the tour, I wasn't able to get into the tour until 12:15 (lines were long). The tour is 30 minutes long, so by then, I was in a panic that I was going to miss the bus ride back. When the tour finished at 12:45PM, I raced back to the bus area, skipping the visitor center (once you leave, you can't go back in). The bus was not there. One of the other people on the tour saw me and told me that the driver had given us the wrong time. We were actually supposed to have until 1:30PM, an additional hour. This woman and her family ended up skipping the tour because they thought they would miss the bus. The driver apologized profusely and accepted all the blame, she said she had been up until 4AM working as a relief driver and had only gotten a couple of hours of sleep, which she took on the bus. Seems concerning that Grey Line would allow her to drive a bus full of tourists on two hours of sleep. She also said she told Grey Line about her mix-up on the time and they were supposed to notify us, but I never received anything. I'm hoping Grey Line will issue some form of a refund to everyone on that trip and take some responsibility for what happened, because what a terrible experience, I barely heard anything the tour guide said about the Dam because I was so worried about the time! Poor, Grey Line, very poor indeed.

When I booked my tour on line the timing of tour was 10.00 a.m. I read reviews online and on the review regarding timing. My pick up time was 8.40 in the morning and not 10.00 from my hotel location. Please make sure for your customer you print pick up time from there hotels and not other time. Other than that tour was well organized and finished on time.

I have paperwork indicating that our tour start time was 1:30pm with pick-up. Viator claims/claimed it was for 12:30. Thus, we were a no show. We were ready for pick-up at 1pm, 30 minutes before our paperwork indicated. When Viator was contacted, they refused a refund claiming we were in the wrong.
Great experience and great tourist guide Tony

Lake mead cruise, dam power plant, and Ethel M chocolate factory

Cruise was relaxing and informative about the lake formation and dam facts. The dam tour provided an amazing view from inside and allowed ample time to walk the dam and look at exhibits. Guide was great and offered more than expected. Chocolate factory gave samples and a beautiful cactus garden that is a must see.

Great Tour!!! Super comfy bus and smooth ride. It was my first time seeing the Hover Dam and it was something I will never forget. Everyone was very knowledgeable and friendly. I can’t wait to go back.
