Picked up by Harrison the onboard comedian who entertained us with his humour to the dam and back. He was very knowledgeable explaining the history and workings of the dam in lay person terms. The tour at site was first class with plenty of opportunities to take photos and enjoy the on-site presentations.. not rushed in any way. No food or bags can be taken onto site and airport security is in place. Baggage can safely be left on the tour bus. First class and would thoroughly recommend it. Not too long or too short.

We celebrated my husband's 40th birthday and had an AMAZING time. Grayce, our guide was exceptional in explaining everything and being a pleasant host for us. The scenery was amazing and the timeframe of the tour was perfect... not too long and not too short.

It was a nice tour guided by a funny tour guide who kept use entertained. It was well planned out and we got to see everything that we wanted to see in the timeframe we had.

Well worth taking time to visit this architectural wonder. Never realized the challenges the workers encountered Peter M.

Joe and Ken were awesome! The entire trip was 5 stars!
