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.

This review is for HOOVER DAM TOUR COMPANY not for Hoover Dam itself. I check out this company and the price was $60 per adult which included pick up and drop off to your hotel and Access to the theater, exhibit rooms, generator room, observation deck as well as the Visitor's Center and the museum. GROUPON had the same deal for $29 which is the reason I booked the tour. The bus driver was great and very informative but don't be late for departure the bus leaves on time 3 people were left behind the bus driver came back to the pick up site and picked up 2 the third person never showed up and was left behind!!! Smooth ride and great photo opportunities!!! The stop at Ethel M. Chocolate Factory was also a great sweat bonus

We were supposed to be picked up at Treasure Island at 9:15am.....We were out there at 9:05. The company was not there. When I called they said I missed the pick up and if I wanted to still goI needed totake cab to Planet Hollywood for pick at 10:00am. We got there at 9:45. At 9:55 I called to make sure they were picking us up since we hadn't seen anyone and was told that the bus already departed!! This is a HORRIBLE operation! When in Las Vegas again I will gotoHooverDam but will NEVER USE HOOVER DAM TOUR COMPANY !!!!!!

our hoover dam tour was guided by Jackie and she was great, so much knowledge and just in the right places! as a las vegas resident it seems like she had a lot of extra knowledge and small things to show us on the way to and from the dam itself. coming with the groupon deal was easy and made it so much worth it. the bus picked us just as was planed from the hotel and then we switched to another but after everyone else were picked. Vegas has a lot of traffic so try to check if you are picked at the beginning or the end of the round and maybe it is better for you to come to their office (on the strip) without the pick up. at the end you can choose where to drop off at your hotel or everywhere else on the strip. the tour goes through few other attractions before and after the dam like the mars factory store and their cactus garden and few celeb homes in Vegas. it is a nice adding to the tour and makes the personal touch for me...
the tour at the dam itself is guided by their own guides but Jackie did took us to the Arizona side of the dam and let us few minutes to go down from the bus and explore that side. the dam is amazing thing that i still can't believe human hand built it in the 30's without the technology we have today (see my review on the dam itself for more details).

We were impressed by the well organized tour. Picked us up at our hotel (Bally's) on time, and proceeded without a hitch. Steve, our driver/tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and entertaining, although his speech pattern is very fast. Half price tickets through Groupon made it an excellent value.
