What people are saying about Hoover Dam

Amazing! We had the best tour guide, Alfonso. He was funny, likable & so kind. Best of all he knew all the best spots to take the most amazing/Instagram worthy photos. He volunteered to take all the photos. Stand in the heat waiting for us to get through the line & photograph us. The tour itself - we did so much, it was incredible! “Welcome to Las Vegas” sign, Hoover Damn, Joshua Tree, Grand Canyon & a little more. Just the best! Highly recommend. Reasonable price.

Absolutely amazing trip with Daryl! Just 5 of us which was the perfect size. We managed to beat all of the big coach trips to the Hoover Dam and Skywalk saving plenty of time to mooch around the vantage points of the canyon and even stop off to see some Joshua Trees! Would highly recommend and would certainly seek out Daryl to tour the Grand Canyon further on future visits!
