A dam good tour of the Hoover dam
Brad_M, Sep 2023
The tour guide Skip was very knowledgeable about the dam and the surrounding area. His driving felt safe
Great experience...ask for Tour Guide Bob
Charles_U, Sep 2023
Bob our guide was very informative and gave us a very memorable trip. Recommend this trip to anyone wanting to see Hoover Dam and learn about the building of the dam and history.
Excellent, informative tour
Andrea_V, Sep 2023
Our tour guide Pam shared a good amount of info in a short time, in a very consumable way. If you’d like to see the Dam and are limited on time, this is the way to go! The tour stayed on time, while hitting all of the major interest points. Overall a very good experience - and we learned a few new things along the way!
A Welcome Respite from the Strip!
William_C, Sep 2023
Several events stand out. I'm researching a novel, so stopping at the Lake Mead Overlook was special for me, looking out over the Boulder Basin. Walking out onto the Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge was exciting--the wind was blowing so hard I thought it was going to knock me down! And the views of Hoover Dam were spectacular. Most of all, I have to give kudos to our tour guide John, who was knowledgeable, entertaining, and very engaging. He really made the trip work.
Awesome Pam's Dam tour
Philip_B, Sep 2023
Pam was so knowledgeable and passionate about the history surrounding the dam, she made the trip so worthwhile. So much was packed into a 3 hour trip.
Interesting tour with an interesting guide
Carla_H, Sep 2023
This tour was like having a very knowledgeable friend show you around. Our guide (a former Cirque du Soleil performer) was personable without getting too personal. The stops were neither too long nor too short. I was able to see everything I wanted to see without feeling bored or rushed.
Nice getaway experience
David_B, Sep 2023
The views, driver was great. Ride was easy. Great little getaway for a few hours and a history lesson as well. VA. Tide was very comfortable.
david_B, Sep 2023
the tour company was late picking us up from the location that was emailed to us. We had to get up early and walk 20 minutes to the pick up location. I called the company and was given excuses about the wrong information was sent out. I called the night before and never received a return call. Poor communication, stressful and angry tour guide resulted in the worst tour we have ever been on. This company should apologize to the 7 people on the tour. This company has many issues that need to be worked out before continuing to offer tours.

Broderick_A, Sep 2023
Just the right amount of time for us. Enjoyed trip. Guide, Victor, was friendly and knowledgeable and dropped us off at our hotel instead of back at pick up site after tour as it was raining - much appreciated! Would recommend.
Amazing tour - extremely informative!
Hollie_C, Sep 2023
We thought this tour was amazing. Our tour guide (who’s name I sadly can’t remember - it was Sunday 18th 8am) was one of the best tour guides we’ve ever experienced! It was clear he knew what he was talking about and had a great personal interest in the locations we visited. He was polite, courteous and friendly. We found everything he said really interesting! It definitely wasn’t too much info. Even though it was a “short tour” it didn’t feel rushed at all. Thank you! When we return to Vegas one day, we would definitely book with Mr Las Vegas!

Pam's Best Dam Tour
Stephani_O, Sep 2023
We had an amazing time. Got picked up at our hotel, super easy. Pam (tour guide) was amazing, sweet and so informative. She even had cold bottles of water for us on the ride. We made 4 stops and I would say got a better tour than if you had gone on your own to the Hoover Dam directly.
Melissa_W, Sep 2023
Pam’s dam tour was the highlight of my trip. I had very low expectations for this tour (because how exciting could a dam be), but Pam really made the tour a 10/10. She was SO knowledgeable and kept the entire group engaged throughout the tour with random facts and witty jokes. Consider yourself lucky if Pam is your tour guide.
