Trip was awesome. Our tour guides Brian and Jason from Mojave Wave tours were great. They were fun personable and informative. Tour bus was comfortable and extra roomy, bus had drink holders and tables . Smaller group made the trip more fun. They treated everyone there like VIP’s. I have already booked a second tour with these guys. They were a great find on my vacation! Would recommend to all !

The scenery was breathtaking. Our guide Jordan was so cool and personable. We explored some of the parks nearby the lake and saw wild Rams. The activity was safe with proper gear. I will be back!

We ended up on a bus of fun people with great personalities and a bus driver that was just simply awesome hands down. I believe everyone on our Hoover Dam bus tour experienced a Funky Good Time.
