Following a short briefing by your driver, you will drive directly to the Hoover Dam, one of the 7 Manmade Wonders of the World. As you pass Boulder City, you’ll get a magnificent view of Lake Mead, the world’s largest manmade lake. On arrival at the Hoover Dam, your driver will direct you to the Visitor’s Center for your guided tour of the Hoover Dam’s interior passageways by the Bureau of Reclamation, who take close to 1,000,000 vistors through the Dam and powerplant every year. Select the Deluxe Option at the time of booking to enjoy a delicious buffet lunch and trip to the famous Ethel M Candy Factory, where you can take a self-guided tour, purchase some handcrafted candies - just like the ones that Ethel Mars used to make - and stroll through the world's largest cactus garden.

Not sure of the driver/tour guide's name as it wasn't mentioned by the time he picked our group up, but he did a good job and was funny at times. We would have loved a few more details on sites we visited. My biggest gripe was no water on the bus, which I have not experienced on a bus tour before. Stopping at the Memorial Bridge, the vending machines were empty. Thankfully, a competing bus driver/tour guide provided some of us water and very kind tourists handed others on our bus water from the back of their car. A $3.00/24 pack addition, I would recommend for every trip or make it VERY clear water is not provided by stating, BRING YOUR OWN WATER. I had to call to get pick up details, which was weird and not very professional (sounded like the person who just answered, "Hello," was at a bar?) I'm not going to lie, it was sketchy, but he was nice and precise. Pick up location was great, albeit a little later than expected (15 min), not a problem. The info wasn't clear on lunch.

The bus was large and roomy as well as very clean. The audio they play while heading to the d sax m was SO interesting. This tour includes so much more than just the dam too! They talked about old las Vegas and even stopped at one of the old welcome to Las Vegas signs for a photo op. This is a must do!

My package included bus transportation from my hotel in Las Vegas to the Hoover Dam. Pick up was on time but the remainder of the transportation was disorganized at best. Other members of the tour stated they had been on the bus for 2 hours before we were finally enroute to the Hoover Dam. Other than that tour was great
