This tour was cancelled and we transferred to the Grand Canyon tour, which was a very good tour except for the very long wait for lunch, which was only a cold sandwich? It appears this system is not updated due to the fact that Viator isn't aware of this change!

Trez was a great guide, funny, knowledgeable, interactive etc. it was just an unfortunate time to go. Down below to the generators was closed and the museum in Boulder City was closed due to Coronavirus!
icon Response from Host , Mar 2020
Thanks for taking the time to write us a review! We think Trez is a great guide, too. We're so sorry that the Hoover Dam turbines and Boulder City museum were closed. Unfortunately, sometimes that does happen which is beyond our control. We're glad you still enjoyed your tour. Hope you can join us for our Grand Canyon tour next time you return to Vegas.

The trip itself was great! I’d choose a different spot for lunch. I had the hot turkey and cheese which was dried out turkey sandwich meat heated on soggy toast.

Hi Shanty, Thanks so much for spending the time to leave us a review! We're sorry you didn't enjoy your turkey sandwich. We're glad you enjoyed our dam tour. We hope you can join us for our Grand Canyon tour sometime soon.
