The tour is fantastic! Our tour guide, Alex, is really what made it great. He was so informative and patient with all of our questions and taking pictures. The Dam is a must see and a overall great experience. Even our teenage kids were impressed! Thank you so much!

And a GREAT review to match! The Hoover Dam is certainly an engineering marvel to see. We're always delighted to make the trek out there (much like each and every other one of our Southwest destinations). Fun for the whole family, from your wee little ones to your experienced wise ones. :)

And we had a blast taking you on tour! Our guides all love the destinations they go to - we visit them almost every day! Some of our guides have been with us for many years as well, and it almost seems like they grow only higher in excitement about visiting each and every one of the tour destinations that we offer. That is truly something special to behold. We hope that you join us again soon!

My son and I did the Hoover Dam tour. The tour guide was early to our hotel, had a very clean car, and took us on our way. Very knowledgable of the area and took many photos for us. Very happy!

My husband and I toured the Hoover Dam with your guide Thomas. I was so not interested but my husband being an engineer just had to go. Your tour guide actually managed to make what I thought was going to be another boring discussion of a structure both fun and fascinating. I

Well, we're certainly glad to surpass your expectations and make things interesting, engaging, and entertaining for you! The Hoover Dam itself usually does it for engineers, but we always take pride in getting the non-engineers on board. Our guides are here to make your day to your destination! Be it the marvelous Hoover Dam, the deep cut canyon of Zion National Park, or hiking the orange Hoodoos of Bryce Canyon - we do our best to get everyone involved! Sharing a unique passion for the Southwest is what sets our guides apart from the rest. It's a little more than just a job for us here at DETOURS! Hope to see you again soon. :)
