Rated 4 out of 5 by Redstick A Great Tour With Exceptions
The coach ride, tour and lunch cruise was great. The one downside is that the Chocolate factory was closed for renovation. We were not notified when we booked. They gave my wife and I a couple small chocolates at the ticket counter. Big Whoopie :(.
The box lunch on the Desert Princess was adequate but not a wide selection. The speaker system that was used to discuss Lake Mead and it's highlights was trash. Worse than some I have heard in the past at fast food restaurants. This needs to be corrected if you care about hearing the canned tour guide messages.
If I go back again I would book just the underground Hoover Dam tour and bypass the boat ride.

Rated 4 out of 5 by CB1965 Ladies and Gentlemen, Here's Gary!
Tour guide Gary was great. Van's AC was a bit to be desired. Hoover Dam tour is highly recommeded, but not sure we got the full 90 minutes. Lake Mead boat tour was good, but lunch is very basic for the $135 a person cost. Tip not included for Driver/Tour Guide, so factor that into your total cost. Unique views of Hoover Dam from boat ride. Overall I think I woulld plan my own trip to Lake Mead and pack our own lunch, but Gary went out of his way to show us Bighorn Sheep up close and personal. If you don't want the hassle of drving, parking,getting tickets, etc. on your own then this tour is for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by VegasFan01 Would recommend it to anyone
We really enjoyed the whole 7.5 hour tour. Our tour guide Chuck picked us up earlier than expected and we had a delightful group of 12 people in the van that made the time fly by. Chuck went above and beyond what was expected and gave an in depth history of all we saw. He kept us on time so we could get to the Hoover dam tour, get on the paddle boat, and go to Ethel M chocolate factory. We even had some time to peruse the Cactus gardens. The amazingly peaceful beauty of Lake Mead and Black Canyon is truly best seen by boat. We were given a boxed lunch (sandwich and fruit, soda). So glad we found a tour that was pleasant and educational.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mel2016 Excellent way to spend your day learning about history and taking in amazing views!
After visiting Vegas for over 20 years, I finally decided it would be good to spend a day at the Dam. We were picked up on time, around 8:40 - drove directly to the Dam, took the guided tour which was amazing and great paced, photo opportunities and walked around before we boarded the shuttle to go to the Lake Mead boat tour. They served us a nice sub sandwich lunch with a drink, which I didn't expect, and we relaxed while the ferry took us around the lake to some amazing views of the Dam.
On the way back to Vegas we stopped at the Ethel M. Chocolate store and then headed back in. I highly recommend this tour and sorry it took me so many years to finally spend the time doing it.
Our tour guide Cathi gave us extensive historical background throughout the trip which made it even more worth our time. Excellent choice, so glad we finally did this excursion.

This was a great trip. The guide who was named Jack. Was a wealth of knowledge. He was a great guide and made the trip fly by with his stories of the area. On the day we went the boat was broken down. So we were unable to take the Lake Mead part of the tour. However they quickly refunded that part of the trip. I was happy with the experience and would recommend this company.

our tour guide Adam picked us up promptly at our hotel. He was extremely imformative, funny, pleasant and a wealth of knowledge. He went above and beyoond. I had read reviews about him before that were all good, but he was better than good. Give that man a raise he truly is outstanding at his job.
