You can call ahead and request him. Altitude in April....MAY be a bit cool..... guide company will advise you. Examine doing a "bulk deal" - where you see both the Dam on the way out, and then do the afternoon / evening at the West Rim. The tour company, whoever you chose - will pre-book all of that for you, and most likely pick you up at your hotel. This saves you on having to go to the Dam to get the big tour tickets - and therefore it may be worth it to have the tour company. The Dam will NOT let you pre-book the full tour, you have to go there and get the tickets - first come first serve. If you do both the Dam and the West Rim - that will be a LONG day - but memorable. Guano Point is typically the third site, and is fabulous. The walking trails are excellent in the evening. It's not too much of a walk to get to the abandoned Machinery House. We ate there - at Guano Point - the meal was included in the ticket - but it was windy, and the Ravens are plentiful. Some of the employees recommended that we do the "ranch" last, and eat there inside. I liked it the other way around. The evening at Guano Point was fabulous. Final note - it's about 2.5 hours drive out - and back. There is almost NOTHING in between, except for a Dollar General Store in a "got nothing" town, and Hoover Damn. That's why the dinner part of the ticket is important. It may also be another reason to "leave the details and driving" to someone else..... just saying. Have fun!
