When booking our trip we were told we had to be picked up at a different hotel. Our tour guide Lucious Jones personally called and picked us up at our hotel. Lucious was like a history teacher. He was able to answer all questions and gave us tons of history on Vegas

Hoover dam disappointment
Kerri_M
, Oct 2021
Disappointing tour. The bus was 45 minutes late for the pick up. Driver had an accent and it was difficult to understand for those of us in the back. He tried to stop at the Vegas sign for photos and everyone on the bus screamed NO. He could have suggested that we go down below first to see the movie and exhibit area and then walk over the dam after. By the time we went down, there was not enough time remaining to do it, especially since the fee was 10.00 and the movie was 15 minutes. How would we know this? He was the tour guide and we expected more from Viator.
icon Response from Host , Oct 2021
Dear Kerri_M, Thank you for choosing Gray Line and we are sorry that we missed your sightseeing expectations. The Welcome to Las Vegas sign is a very popular stop on this tour and is the single most photographed spot in Las Vegas, which is why our Hoover Dam tours stop at this location. We are also sorry if you driver/guide was hard for you to understand, the Las Vegas community is one of the most diverse in the USA and our staffing does represent this fact. On behalf of everyone at Gray Line around the world, I want to wish you all the best in your future travel experiences. Sincerely, GL Vegas Customer Service
