Really wasn’t sure what to expect, but it was wonderful.. Our guide Sean was very knowledgeable and very professional!! It was just the three of us which made it very nice and personal. I would highly recommend the tour group without any hesitation. Again our guide Sean was fabulous!

Our tour was the first tour to happen under the schedule to accommodate the elevator replacement. Brett was a great guide and even went on the tour down into the turbine room so he could let his company know of the changes taking place. What a great, relaxing way to tour the site. Brett picked us up in the Hummer, just the 2 of us on the tour, was very informative with details of the area, Boulder City, and the Dam construction, and ended the site visit with a walk on the new bridge for an unbelievable view of the dam. Avoid the group tours, this is the way you want to see Hoover Dam

My husband I booked the 4 hour Hummer Hoover Dam tour. Thomas Thomas , the Hummer operator/tour guide was very informative about Las Vegas and the Dam. Fun time . I would hire Big Horn tours again

This was definitely worth the cost of the tour! My 9 year old son and I wanted to go check out the Hoover Dam, so I booked online before we left for Vegas. Our guide Tom picked us up at the hotel in the Hummer, gave us a great history of the area and the dam on the way, then gave us specific instructions on how to beat the crowds, where restrooms were, etc. After the tour, Tom was right there to drop us back off at the hotel. Strong recommendation!

If you happen to go to Vegas enough, this tour is well worth your time. There is more to Vegas then just gambling and I am glad we gave this tour a shot. Masterpiece of Civil engineering, the guide was knowledgeable, we were not rushed. We spend enough time on the Hoover dam deck, took pictures. We got to appreciate this dam much more then we would have if we never visited.

Our tour was a little disappointing since the elevator leading down to the generators were broken down. Our tour guide I believe his name was Mike, made the experience dam good. He took us to a couple of great outlooks looking over the dam and Lake Mead. When talking with us we mention that we have not seen any animals, so he took us to a city park and there were 20 to 30 big horn sheep. My son also mention that he did not see any fancy cars. Mike made sure to tell us every time he saw a Ferrari, Lamborghini, or note worthy car on the road, he even took us on the strip on the way back to the hotel and showed us where one was at we could go and see up close. So even though the actual Hoover Dam tour was a little disappointing our tour guide made it a great experience and would recommend the Hummer Tours.
