Right amount of time. Could have used 45 minutes instead of 30 minutes at the bridge. Times at other stops were appropriate.

Seeing the Hoover dam was always on my bucket list. But one thing stood out is how funny and amazing our tour guide Wayne is. He definitely made the trip to the dam more enjoyable. I would recommend the tour and most definitely recommend Wayne.

Tour was canceled with no notice.
Barbara_K

I booked the Hoover Dam tour in advance. I received confirmation via email and text. The day my husband and I arrived in Vegas I got a call while checking into our hotel. The shuttle was ready to pick us up. It was 9:25 am. They were supposed to get us at 12:25 pm. They said the afternoon tour was canceled due to mechanical issues with the tour bus. Nobody told my husband or I of the change. It was the only day we could take the tour. We were very disappointed. We did get reimbursed. However, it's the principle. The tour company should have had a back up plan and another vehicle to use.
icon Response from Host , Jan 2022
Dear Barbara, Thank you for choosing Gray Line and I want to apologize again for the tour excursion cancellation that affected your plans. At Gray Line we understand the effect a cancellation has on our guests, which is why we rarely cancel any excursions. Unfortunately, on the day of your tour a mechanical issue occurred which would have made a safe tour impossible. On this date a replacement vehicle was not available and since safety is a founding principle of Gray Line we were forced to inconvenience you. We are indeed sorry for this and we wish you all the best in your future travel experiences. Sincerely, GL Vegas Customer Service

Follow instructions in “Before u Go” tab

Probably a great tour. We missed bus because of not knowing pickup time. Please follow instructions under “Before u go” tab. I think if u choose pickup location u should be given pickup time. I offered to Uber to Hoover Dam so I can join the tour and not lose my money but that was declined. To their credit, I was offered to reschedule for another day at a rate of $20 per person. So looks like I’ll be coming back to Vegas within the next 365 days. I hope that is honored.

Dear Joseph, We are very sorry about the confusion you experienced with your pickup, but we are happy that you will be taking us up on our offer to rebook you when you next return to fabulous Las Vegas. In the meantime, we wish you well, wherever in the world your travels may take you. Sincerely, GL Vegas Customer Service.

Our driver was Tommy and he was the best! He picked up and dropped us off at our hotel even though it wasn’t on the list for pick up just so me and my friend wouldn’t have to walk a long ways in Vegas by ourselves. He was very knowledgeable about Las Vegas and it’s history. This trip was amazing and I recommend it to anyone who’s on the edge about doing it!

The excursion itself is great with the tour guide very knowledgeable. The only drawback is the lack of accuracy of pickup time and pickup location. The email confirmation lacks these details which could easily make you miss the trip.

It was a nice experience for me and my sister. The giant dam is amazing, rocky views around it are beautiful! We were skeptical about booking it online , but then decided to give it a try. Booking online via Viator was super easy, the pick up at my hotel was on time, the driver/ tour guide ( Wayne) is nice and friendly. I definitely will use Viator again for my next tour.
