Our first time in Vegas, but wanted to get out to see Hoover Dam. Bought the tickets online. Called them when we got to the hotel to confirm- no problem. Picked us up in charter bus, then went to some other hotels, then they took us to the MIracle Mile Mall to check-in. We waited in line, showed our paperwork, and they told us which bus to get on. Our bus driver, Leo, was great- he is from the area and knows it well. Our time at the dam was good and we had plenty of time to take the underground tour, and then head up to look and walk around. We had purchased the deluxe package with lunch and gift card to Miracle Mile shops, which I would not recommend doing. First of all, unless you want to eat lunch at 2pm, you are not going to have lunch at the miracle mile shops. We grabbed a hot dog and snack at the dam because we were hungry! Ethel M's is kind of cool, but their chocolate is expensive! Once we got back to the mall, had to find something to spend our money on. Then, we went to try to find a ride back to our hotel, which was supposed to be included. None of the taxi's knew what we were talking about. So, we called the company and they gave us the name of two types of taxis we had to find. We ended up walking to Planet Hollywood because most of the taxis go there. Finally found one (after 30 mins) that was right and the guy had no idea what we were talking about. He had to call into his dispatcher to verify. Whew! So I would not recommend that package! Just take the bus back and forget the miracle mile shops- it's just a mall.
