Was better than expected!
We enjoyed the tour of the Hoover Dam along with the additional stops. Our shuttle was comfortable and clean. Our driver Danny Ho was awesome, he really made it more interesting and fun. Definitely worth it.

Great Tour
The experience was great. Alex was very informative. He has a lot of knowledge about the Grand Canyon and Hoover Dam. He was safety conscious and made sure everyone in the group was having a good time. He also stop a the best spot so everyone could get a picture with the 900 year old Joshua tree. My sister and I had a great time.

Viator delivered as promised and I highly recommend them.
CJ picked us up at the scheduled time in a clean air-conditioned van. He was pleasant and knowledgeable about the tour destinations as well as local areas we traveled through. The Hoover damn was my favorite part of the tour. It was an amazing testament to what man can accomplish. Guano point was my favorite canyon stop. I wasn't impressed with the Skywalk, basically set up as a tourist trap.
