“Personal service from a TRUE local!”
Reviewed April 23, 2013 via mobile

Dean took my group of ladies out on larger tour and it felt like we were a small group. He was AWESOME! His knowledge of the area was great and his interaction even better. As an event planner Dean was so easy to work with and the timing perfect. I saw other groups at the Dam tour being shuttled around like cattle by their guides and I felt bad for them. I would recommend Dean's Tours to anyone looking for a great tour of the area.

“Excellent tour and extremely accommodating”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

This experience was great from the beginning. I was not sure which day we wanted to go and the day we choose there was no one else booked but Dean was willing to take just the two of us since we couldn't go the day he had a group. He showed up when he said he would and made us feel comfortable and was really excited about sharing the history of his city and Hoover Dam. My father couldn't hear very well so he had him sit up front with him which made a huge difference in his enjoyment. Dean was very flexible during the day and you never felt dragged around. Honestly it felt like you were visiting family and they were showing you around. I would recommend Dean's tour to anyone visiting that area. We really enjoyed ourselves.

“Great Tour, lots of info!”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

Found Dean here on trip advisor and so glad we did! Booked a Hoover Dam tour, Pick up was exactly on time, Dean was friendly, incredibly knowledgeable and accommodating. Terrific insight into the areas history on the trip to the Dam, out of Vegas and thru Boulder City visited the McCallum-Tillman bridge, again great information. Hoover Dam tour was interesting and fun. Dean dropped us off back on the strip wherever we wanted. Highly recommend Dean and his company, worth the money, way better than the large bus tours, hands down! See you next time Dean, and thanks again for a great day!

“Hoover Dam Tour”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

Fabulous time. Turns out we were the only two booked to go on this particular day, and in hindsight, I would have expected to be bumped to another day since we also booked at the last minute. To Deans credit, he showed up bright eyed and bushy tailed (haha) and off we went for a great half day tour of the dam, and just as interesting, was the tour about Vegas, Boulder City and Nevada in general we got on the drive down and on the drive back. I loved it, and would totally recommend this to anyone else interested in getting off the strip for a little bit.
