This tour company is a scam!! Was supposed to be 4 hours. Spent 2 hours just picking people up around town. We missed our evening plans at night that were non refundable because we returned 3 hours late. Will never use this company again. The customer service is terrible and

Dear F2522IVcb, We are sorry that you did not enjoy your time with us more. All of our Hoover Dam tours include complimentary pickup and drop-off service, yet this is not actually part of the tour- simply a money saving convenience for our valued guests and obviously can take some time, particularly if traffic conditions are worse than normal. Our guests can always make their own way to our Terminal to start their tour and are free to leave the coach at any of the hotel stops upon return. On behalf of everyone at Gray Line, I want to wish you well in your future travel experiences. Sincerely, Zachary

The pick up was on time but we had go to the Grey Line terminal and had to wait. Freeways were closed for a brief time. Then our driver rear-ended a car and another delay. We were also told that the elevators were not running that day. They only reimbursed us $5 which was

Dear Janet N, Thank you for being a Gray Line customer and leaving us feedback. We are sorry that your tour had a few hiccups in it. I do want to come to the defense of our driver and while a slight accident did occur, eye witness verified that the other vehicle, which was in a turn only lane, failed to obey the rules of the road and by barreling straight ahead, caused the minor altercations. We are sorry that this affected your tour. The mighty Hoover Dam is owned and operated by the Bureau of Reclamation, Department of the Interior of the US Government and on the day of the tour they had issues with their brand new tourism elevator, which caused the cancellation of that portion of the Dam. The refund you received was equal to our cost for providing that element of the tour. Once again, we are sorry that this Hoover Dam mechanical issue affected your day. Regards, Zachary

Dear Enjoys2Trvl, Thank you for being a Gray Line customer and leaving us a review, of course we do wish that you enjoyed your day with us more. Our company has been taking people on sightseeing tours to the mighty Hoover Dam for nearly 40 years and most guests seem to find value in our tours. We are sorry that the tourism elevator issues that the Hoover Dam has experienced affected your tour and our refund to you represented our cost for that aspect to the day. On behalf of everyone at Gray Line around the world, I want you to know that we all hope to see you on another experience sometime soon...wherever in the world your travels may take you. Regards, Michael
