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!!

Lucius was an awesome guide. Very knowledgeable. Timing of pick up is an issue. Told to be at Excalibur at 15 minutes before the 9:25 pick up (ie 9:10 am) yet bus came at 10:00. 50 minute wait because driver is given only 5 minutes between hotels which is unrealistic for Vegas. Ours was the 9th stop of pick up. Why not do 10 minutes between stops? It will allow people to check in and board and won’t make people wait unnecessarily for nearly an hour?

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.

it was unclear where to meet the bus. the hotel was not helpful. thw bus was 1.5 hrs behind schedule. we had to xut the tour short. bus operator was uninformed and only spoke loud enough for the first 5 rows. Additionally i paid in advance the driver announced very loudly that u owed $10 with no explanation. Not a good experience.

Dear Purpcalli, Thank you for being a Gray Line customer and we are sorry for any difficulties you experienced. The pickup spot at Las Vegas hotels is set by the hotels themselves. We do believe that our confirmation give a clear notice as where that is located, but in any event as the area is set by the hotel, they should have easily directed you to the pickup location. Due to the current fuel situation in the USA we have had to impose a fuel surcharge, however this would have been disclosed on your confirmation/receipt. We do apologize for any misunderstandings. In closing, I want to wish you all the best in your future travel experiences. Sincerely, Zachary

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

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!

Trip was good. Bus was great. Very informative. Driver was well prepared. However, drinking water offered was hot due to both climate and the fact that the driver had no cooler for it. He blamed the company for that. Also the fuel surcharge was supposed to be $5/person but the driver charged us $20 for a party of only two without explanation. I usually tip tour guides. Not this time.

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!
