We booked a trip from Vegas to the Hoover Dam for a morning (8-noon) and had the best guide - James. He was incredibly knowledgeable about, not only the history of the Hoover Dam, but also the areas around it in Boulder City and Henderson and Vegas as well. He was very friendly and gave us a great morning. The... More

I saw snakes, lizards and Elvis. Those were the tattoos of the people on the trip! I have rode in the dessert on quads before and can honestly say I had the most fun on this trip. This being the advanced ride was very fun and very beautiful. There were plenty of photo ops and lots of laughs. If I... More

My three sisters and I booked the Hoover Dam tour with Detours through the Palazzo Concierge desk. Three of us had toured the Dam before but my one sister had never been and really wanted to learn about the history and building of the dam. We were on the 8:00 a.m. tour and were picked up from the Venetian at... More

Thank you for sharing your review on Tripadvisor. Because your particular tour got off to an early start due to smooth and easy pick ups, James took you through the historic district of Boulder City, which was an added bonus being that the Hoover Dam doesn't open until 9am. We are glad you enjoyed the Hoover Dam tour and we... More
