Simply GREAT! Our tour guide Robert was sensational! We made a few stops and always had enough time for photos and any bathroom breaks! He was funny and accommodating and told us so many interesting things about the Hover Dam! If one was too hot, he didn't have to get off and could wait in the air-conditioned bus. We can only recommend this tour to everyone!

We really enjoyed our tour to the Hoover Dam. Our driver was Tony and he was amazing! He is such a fun and lively tour guy, he is also very knowledgeable and we loved that. We definitely want to go on other tours and want him to be driver! 5 stars for sure!!!

Michael was our guide during our tour. He was very friendly, accommodating, and knowledgeable about the in's and out's of our stopovers and destinations. Would love to have him again as a guide on other trips. Kudos to Michael and his efforts! Thank you!

The ride was good. Michael was very exelent in knowledge and meeting all the needs of the trip. Highly recommend! Just make sure to find out exactly were to meet, because at Treasure Island, there is NO sign stating tours or what tours.

The tour was really an express tour. It's not too long, but included everything required and we enjoyed the ride. The bus driver was excellent.
