Full description
This amazing day includes a wonderful tour of Hoover Dam followed by 3 full hours at the Grand Canyon West Rim on the Hualapai Reservation. Hoover Dam is located in Black Canyon on the Colorado River.  It’s an outstanding achievement, noteworthy not only for its enormous dimensions, complex design and intricate construction, but also for its illustration of man's outstanding ability to overcome the desert's summer sun, the vagaries of a treacherous river, and the extreme hazards of the great heights of the canyon’s sheer walls. This tour includes breathtaking views from the Top of the Dam, Lake Mead, the world's largest man-made lake, the eastern edge of the chasm in Arizona where you have fabulous views of the dam. In addition, you will walk across the top of the Dam into Arizona where there are wonderful photo ops of the new Hoover Dam Bridge. As a bonus, stop at a local park where herds of Big Horn Sheep often come down from the surrounding mountains to gather and graze on the sweet grass. Cross the beautiful High Desert of Arizona and visit the incredible 900 year old Joshua Tree Forest, Eagle Point & Guano Point (with 3 hours to explore the most beautiful natural locations at the rim of the Grand Canyon). You’ll have a romantic lunch at the rim and see Native American Dwellings. This is the “family outing” of a lifetime!

It was a long day but knew that going in. Our pick up time was 7:25 but didn’t arrive to hotel till 7:50am. I realize traffic is out of your control but a phone call or text let party to be picked up notified. Was concerned we were in wrong place. After pick the trip took upswing to fun and folic. The Hoover damn along to Grand Canyon west rim was wonderful, down right cold at the west rim making our visit there short and a little afraid we would be blown off the rim. I’m glad an option to do both on same day is nice. The meal for lunch was on the reservation and food was very good. It was nice to have the chance to stop and get close to the Joshua tree in the Joshua tree national forest. Thank you Scoot for bring us to and fro and keep us safe.

VIP tour on Thanksgiving

We only had 1 day in Las Vegas and chose this tour operator to visit the Grand Canyon. Our guide picked us up from the hotel with a nice pick-up car and we were 4 participants in total plus the guide. This gives us the opportunity to speak a lot, in English in a very informal and detailed way, Paul answered our questions with pleasure and kindly. The guide first accompanied us to the Hoover dam which, however, on the day of Thanksgiving was unfortunately closed (for this we asked for a partial refund which was granted to us after a couple of days), then we went to the Grand Canyon, first to see Eagle Point, where our guide accompanied us directly with the car, equipped with permits. Stop for lunch on a ranch and further panoramic stop at Guano Point. On the way back, stop for photos at Joshua Tree Forest. Wonderful tour and good value for money x how we were treated!

Excellent tour

Me and my husband loved this tour. Chris Chesmore (our tour guide) was excellent and very knowledgeable. He was on time and very polite. We were traveling with a family from Florida and everyone loved the tour. Everyone should visit the Hoover Dam, it was magnificent. The food at the Hualapai Ranch was really good and the views of the Grand Canyon were breathtaking. I would definitely go on a tour with Chris and Adventure Photo Tour again!!
