It was a great experience and had a great driver (thanks Angela) who told us valuable stories from Las Vegas at the same time. Hoover Dam was very interesting and the boat trip was relaxing and impressive. Small note: In the description when booking it said there and back. In the voucher later there was no return transport. This caused confusion, so we had to make phone calls. Of course we were picked up. This passage should be taken out.

Impressive edifice

Great tour, but Sweet tours didn't contact me with the pick up details so I had to call them myself, then they sent me an email with the deal details. The bus driver tells interesting information BUT it was with a handheld microphone and one hand on the right, even in mountain driving. The same thing happened when talking on the phone while driving, again handheld - totally unacceptable.
