This tour was easy to book, location was accessible & we had a reliable/friendly tour guide/driver (Wayne). Overall the time was 4hrs but you get to see the Historical Hotel, Bridge, Dam & Lake Mead. It was worth it for the price. My family enjoyed being outdoors and being able to check it off our bucket list.

Our guide Michael was great! Full of good information, timely, funny. Gave us the perfect amount of time to enjoy each of our stops and got us back to the strip in time to enjoy everything else Vegas has to offer.

Our tour guide Ronnie is so pleasant, informative, and smart. His sense of humor is so good that we never felt bored at any point of our trip.

The prices was good. The bus driver was excellent can't say enough good things about him. Very knowledgeable.

Wonderful tour with plenty of photo ops and restroom breaks.
