What people are saying about Hoover Dam

We had an amazing day with our guide Ruben. He was so informative, friendly and thought of our every need (also pretty good at taking our group photos!) nothing was too much trouble. We would highly recommend a small group tour to visit the Grand Canyon as in our eyes it is the trip of a lifetime and has given us memories for a lifetime facilitated by Ruben and the company he works for. 5 big fat gold stars from us all x

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!

Nate was fantastic! Very personable, funny, knowledgeable and a great tour guide/driver! He made a long trip really fun! Well worth the time and money to experience this tour! #DamSmithFamilyVacation

The tour guide Darren was great. He had a lot of knowledge of the history of Boulder City and Hoover Dam and we got to see the dam and Lake Mead from many different angles.

Such a fun trip full of information from our guide Thomas. So glad we did a full day trip to see everything in one day. We had a blast!! Would highly recommend:)
