The Hoover Dam is a marvel!! The fact that it was built in the 1930’s with the machinery and technology available at that time is unreal. Definitely a must see if you are in the area. And the driver took us to see the Desert Big Horn sheep that hang out at the park!! That was very cool.
Unfortunately, now for the cons. The air conditioning on the bus. As in there wasn’t any at the back of the bus. No ac at the front but at least there was air movement. By the time we got back to town all the people in the back were wet with sweat and all we had done was rode a bus. Told the driver who said he didn’t know how to fix it. On a day where the outside temp exceeded 105 degrees this was not healthy. At the dam, the driver said to be back at the bus in an hour. We had assumed the visitors center tour was included in the price but since we had no ticket we paid that admission in addition to the $66 for the tour. We got back to the bus in an hour, only to wait in the heat for 20 more minutes for driver to come back. All in all I wish we had just rented a car and driven ourselves!!

I booked a Deluxe trip for bus tour of Hoover Dam with 20 minute helicopter ride 1 month earlier. The day of trip I was called by Gray stating no interior tour of dam, no lunch, no chocolate factory, and we would be reimbursed $15 per person. While the interior dam tour is not their fault, the quantity of others who booked express tour led to others being downgraded. The refund was not compensative of the reduction. Positive note was returning early to enjoy day back in Vegas. The bus driver was pretty funny and made trip enjoyable for group. After 20 mins at Welcome sign we drove about an hour to the dam. Where they gave us 2 hours to tour. After that we were dropped off at The Lodge for helicopter ride while bus with everyone else returned. The Helicopter ride lasted 6 minutes, flew over “black canyon,” Lake Mead, and glimpsed near edge of the dam. It was not what was expected and while dam was a worthy of the trip, I do feel slight disappointment it fully was not worthy of the day trip for what we expected to see on our short trip to Vegas because of the shortened tour.

What an excellent trip!! Every stop was beautiful. Danny was our driver, he brought so much fun and positivity to the experience! We even got to make a quick stop at the original Vegas welcome sign and Danny had great commentary while driving through the city. Bus was comfortable. If you are looking to spend part of the day sight seeing, this is very much worth it!

Worst experience of our lives ! We walked off the bus . Trip was 2 hours late ,bus driver was to busy talking to her friend about her personal life . They made us buy cab fare to a pick up location then we sat on the bus for 2 hours while they drove all over Vegas to pick up 1 or 2 people .You spend more time on the bus then on the tour ! DON’T DO IT

Dearr 848danad2016, Gray Line Las Vegas would like to apologize for the late pickup, yet that was approximately 20 minutes not 2 hours.. When you work around the busiest tourism corridor in the world occasionally transit delays do happen- mainly due to unscheduled road works, difficulty locating passengers at large Las Vegas resorts or just higher traffic volume than normal. We are sorry that this had a impact on your hotel pickup. Gray Line Las Vegas tours offer pickup for many Las Vegas hotels, with more than 200 hotels in the Las Vegas area it just is not feasible to pickup guests at all hotels. Your coach was not picking up random people, but guests who had book our tour at hotels that are on our normal pickup route. Our hotel pickup service is conducted along normal tourism industry practices. Regarding our driver talking with her "friend". While this individual may have appeared to be her friend, it was actually a supervisor that was along to see what, if any, additional training may have been needed for the driver. We wish you well in your future travel experiences. Sincerely, Zacharry

If you're looking for an inexpensive, but informative, tour of Hoover Dam, this is the one. Our guide was really knowledgeable and they gave us plenty of time to explore. My only complaints, if they even rise to that level, were that the bus was really hot (even though it's air conditioned, it just doesn't cool) and I wish we'd had time to explore Boulder City but then that would have been another tour so not the fault of these guys. We really loved the Dam though!

Great price, great quality, nice and easy. Didn’t expect it to be something this exciting. Tony was incredible very knowledgeable and hilarious. He really made it into a great tour. Also very impressed how he drove perfectly around traffic and around narrow turns on top of mountains in a huge bus. Give that man a promotion!!!

Big shout out to our tour guide Tony! At first I thought he was going to be really quiet and not talk much but once he got started he didn’t stop! He was super funny and gave a complete narrative from start to finish. The trip was great if you’ve never seen the Hoover dam it is a must see. The tours of the dam are closed due to Covid so it’s kind of you’re on your own, which is fine. One minor complaint, trip was a little longer than expected. we were given an hour and a half to walk around the dam, butf r an hour would’ve been more than enough. Then on the way back people started changing where they want to be dropped off so it took a really long time till we finally got to our hotel which was annoying. But other than that I recommend this trip. Once again- huge shout out to Tony!

I have never been to Hoover Dam and was looking forward to the experience. I will say, I most likely not use this service again and will drive myself the next time I go. The driver was 30 mins late picking us up from the hotel and my husband and 2 kids were spread out on the bus because it was 100% full. This wouldn't have been bad if it wasn't over 100 degrees at 11am, but because it was, this made the rest of the adventure very uncomfortable. The driver tried to be upbeat and joke around but at a certain point when you're extremely overheated, it became annoying.

I am glad to have been able to see the dam and the bridge, but I will most likely not use this experience again.

With a stop at the iconic Las Vegas sign and the Lake Mead overlook, this was a dam good tour that did not disappoint. Our tour guide Danny was both informative and hilarious with no shortage of dam puns. I would recommend this for anyone looking for some dam fun in their afternoon.

If I could give less than 1 star I would. We booked an half day Hover Dam tour and were told to meet at the big clown sign at Circus Circus, this was the only pick up information that was provided. We arrived 10 minutes before the pick up time and waited, and when the van was 10 minutes late we called the main line. While we were on the line, an unmarked van showed up at the near by parking lot (not the big clown). The driver did not exit the van or make any attempt to signal who he was or why here was there. Despite being ON THE LINE with the main office, she was unable to contact her own driver and we were unable to confirm this was in fact or van (we are still not sure). The driver also supposedly has a list of passengers and their phone numbers and he made no attempts to contact myself or my wife. While this was going on the driver then left and when the office agent managed to get a hold of him, he refused to circle back despite being just a few minutes away. The tour company then refused to take any action and told us to take up with the ticketing vendor.

Dear 875blaken, Thank you for being a Gray Line customer and I would like to offer our sincere apologies for confusion experienced during your recent Hoover Dam tour pickup. Normally the pickup process works like clockwork and it is a shame that our staff was not able to accommodate you for a visit to the Hoover Dam. We do hope you enjoyed your tour with us the following day to the spectacular Grand Canyon and the upgraded seats our staff was able to arrange for your party. Once again, on behalf of everyone at Gray Line I want to apologize for the confusion and we want to wish you all the best in your future travel experiences. Sincerely, Zachary
