Purchased deal for my husband and I to visit Hoover Dam. We picked up on time by driver in a small unmarked van and proceeded to pick up other guests along the strip. Our driver was very friendly and did point out some sites on the way to the Dam. We were able to make two brief stops for some photo taking (a bonus) before getting to the Dam. As we got closer we were informed that the FEE to get inside the visitors center is $8 and the TOUR of the Dam is $11. You need CASH to pay this amount. If you don't want to do either of these options you can walk around the outside of the facility or visit the gift shop. Also the $11 tour does not give you the special access inside the Dam. I was a bit disappointed because we had rented a car in Vegas and could've easily driven to the Dam and spent $30 for the all-inclusive tour. You are basically paying for the van service and 20 minute extra stop to the chocolate factory. The cactus gardens there are very nice and you do get once piece of chocolate. DO NOT bring any food into the Hoover Dam with you - they take it away. You can leave it safely on the bus. Tight security. Overall, very impressive sight, just disappointed that we didn't get access to all areas and were not told about additional costs in the groupon deal. Not really a half day tour. Not too much time spent in the facility. Lot of bus time.
