Our host and driver Skip was very knowledgeable and funny. You can’t imagine how awesome the Hoover dam is until you get there. There was enough time to get out have a look at different areas of the dam. And the information given was great without being boring.

I booked this tour with my best friend. Her and I were excited to see such an enormous monument that has such a rich history! Chris was knowledgeable, honest, thoughtful and funny! Couldn’t have dreamed up a better tour guide! This was my first guided tour and I enjoyed every minute of it. Felt at home, safe and I picked up a TON of fun facts to tell all my friends and family at home! Thank you so much Chris!!
