The tour was amazing! The tour guide was knowledge and funny. He was able to answer almost every question posed to him and made the decent sized tour group feel personal. The tour was well worth the money and the time we spend there! Make sure to be ready to walk but it's worth it!

We made the drive during a vacation to vegas. Well worth the trip but try to do it as early as possible in morning. By the time we left, the admission traffic was insane. Our only option was the power plant tour on this day as well as the observation walk of the dam. Exceptional but not great elevator rides if you are claustrophobic.

The Hoover Dam is pretty cool. I think my trip would've been better if the tours were available. It would've been cool to see how everything works. I also wanted to go on the tour to ask questions regarding how many people try to jump off each year. I'm sure I could look it up online, but getting it from a tour guide might be more accurate.

It may be only a twenty minute attraction. But it's worth it. Men built this damn. Weren't paid much. Lost their lives. This is an awesome man made structure.

Just got back from our vacation to Las Vegas, we stayed on the strip and rented slingshot and drove them to the dam and Valley of fire. The dam is impressive and amazing but it does seem bigger in the movies lol. We did not take a tour, we planned too but decided to squeeze in valley of fire on the same day instead. I was happy with our choice. Took lots of pictures and checked it off my bucket list.
