by KCFly11 Spectacular Views. Very good customer service. Knowledgeable Tour Guide.
We were in Vegas for my wife's birthday and booked this tour because we wanted to see the Grand Canyon and were intrigued by the idea of flying over the Grand Canyon in a plane.
We booked on Vegas.com. We printed our itinerary and brought it with us.
I suggest checking with you hotel the night before on where the tour buses pick up. We were at the Venetian and there was a special area for shuttle and tour pick ups. This area was not out front of the hotel. and was actually quite a distance from the front of he hotel. You wouldn't want to miss your shuttle.
We were at the pickup location a bit early and saw the bus pull up with Vegas.com logos on the side. The guide stepped out and called out for us by name. We presented our voucher, checked in and were off. There were a couple stops after us, but we remained on schedule.
The ride to Hoover Dam was 30 mins the bus temp was fair, and there were complimentary waters in a cooler in the front. The guide gave us non stop facts about Vegas history and Hoover dam history. She engaged the group and had a nice speaking voice.
HUGE!!! The tour is intriguing for people of all ages and backgrounds. It included a video, view of turbine room, view of room with dam water running through a pipe10 ft under your feet, lookout point for pics, souvenir shop and snack shop.
Breathtaking from the plane we were in. Flight was at least an hour and a half(maybe longer). Views were amazing. My only gripe, the small plane plus the turbulence made me a queezy at some point on on the way back. I'm not sure if a Helicopter would be better. I also would have liked to see the Canyon from the ground as well for some photos that did not have the plane's propeller or a glare from the planes window in the pics. I was able to get some good shots, still would have liked to see it from the ground. This particular tour did not include a ground stop at the canyon.
We were returned to our hotel as promised by the tour.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Chappers Pickup so late that we didn't have time for the tour of the Dam
Picked up by minibus on time at our hotel, but dropped off at another hotel to await a larger coach. By the time we'd waited for that coach and made further pickups we arrived at the Hoover Dam an hour behind schedule so were unable to take the planned Discovery tour into the Dam which was very disappointing. We had only 30 mins to view the Dam from the outside before being transported to the airport for the flight over the Grand Canyon section of the tour. Our guide was nice, humorous and informative and the coach was comfortable and free water was provided.
The air tour was great fun, well organised and pretty much to schedule and we were dropped back at our hotel. I'm not sure what caused the delay with the morning pickups - but maybe trying to collect 42 passengers from several different hotels all around Vegas was not the best plan. The tour should have been split into smaller numbers of people then we would have experienced the whole tour, not just part of it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by John54 Awesome!
Both the tour of Hoover Dam & the plane ride over Hoover Dam/Lake Mead & the Grand Canyon met every expectation from the time of pick up to the time of drop off back at our hotel later in the day. All staff throughout were very friendly and knowledgeable which made our adventure that more enjoyable. We will not hesitate in recommending these tours.

Rated 3 out of 5 by MomandSon Good but pick up time was too long
It took nearly two hours to get picked up at our hotel and start the ride to Hoover Dam. This including waiting at another hotel and waiting on the bus for other people to be picked up at various hotels. This was frustrating since we only had 90 minutes to see Hoover Dam.
The plane ride was great. It is a small plane, people who get motion sick may not enjoy the ride. We went in July and it was warm on the plane. It was 104 degrees outside and it is hard to cool a plane in those temps.
The view of Hoover Dam and the Grand Canyon from the plane is awe inspiring. The dam is very impressive to see. Photos do not do justice to the size of the dam.
My teen aged son enjoyed both the dam and the plane ride.

Awesome tour guide and views from the plane. I do not recommend the plane portion to those prone to motion sickness though.
