Astounding! Seeing the dam from that angle is worth every penny. First, we boarded a little bus to get down to the dam.We lucked out and were the only two on our tour, so we got to ask a ton of questions. Once at the launch site, you get on a sort of pontoon boat. You can get right up... More

We really enjoyed this trip. It was beautiful and the guide was great. I have two suggestions: 1. Have a portable step on the rafts to make it easier for people to get on and off the raft at the stops. 2. We booked this online and no specific directions other than the address came in our confirmation. We were... More

Thanks for the great review. And thanks for the suggestions! Some GPS's get you here, some don't we have been told. Not sure why, but we will look into it again. And we do have a large check in sign on the building, but appears the spring bloom might be hiding it somewhat. We will look at that also. Again... More

Had a nice time on the river for a few hours. Our guide Leslie was a confident professional who knew so much about the dam, area history, and the wildlife and geography. There was a packed lunch with ice pack provided that included wrap, fruit, cookies, chips and water. We stopped on a small beach head for lunch and potty... More

We just took our four kids on the 3 hour rafting trip leaving from the base of the Hoover Dam. They picked us up at the RV park at Lake Meade and took us down the service road access to the Hoover Dam to start the trip. There were about 20 of us on the raft. We loved Brian, our... More

I am ashamed to admit I used to live in Las Vegas and never went on any kind of a venture down the Colorado River.

We took the postcard tour. We absolutely loved the views from the boat as well as the history we learned from both the van and boat drivers. If we are at the Hoover Dam again in the future we would definitely consider taking the longer tour. Our kids really liked this as well.
