“FABULOUS!!! Hoover dam tour”
Reviewed 5 March 2012

Our son's booked us on a Hoover Dam tour. I can't thank them enough for choosing "Dean's outdoors adventure tour". Dean picked us up on time at our hotel and gave us the most informative tour with plenty of details. He took us into Boulder city, giving us lots of background history about how the town came about with the building of the Dam. He took us up to the lake Meed lookout , climb the steps to view the Dam from the new O'Callaghan-Tillman bridge and finally arrived at the Hoover Dam. We crossed the Dam with him while giving us still more pertinent info. By the time we saw the video and went down into the power station part of the Dam we really had lots of needed knowledge that made that part of the visit more interesting.
I recommend this tour to all people wanting to have an informative and personnal experience of their visit of Hoover Dam. Dean talked about having more projects on the way about tours in the Las Vegas. You can be sure that if I go that way again I will check if Dean has tours for the attraction I want to visit. Absolutely Fabulous experience.

“Amazing Hoover Dam Tour”
Reviewed 13 February 2012

Thanksgiving weekend with family in Vegas was great and one of the best times was @ Hoover Dam. Take your camera, a hat and sunscreen. Sit back and enjoy. Dean will tell you all you ever want to know about the Dam and Vegas - he is a fabulous guide.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed 27 January 2012

We had a fabulous day visitng the Grand Canyon with Dean. We were two families so we had the car to ourselves, where we were extremely comfortable. Dean was a great guide, telling us all about Hoover dam and the Canyon. Dean provided snacks and water for the journey and a very healthy and filling lunch. At no time did he rush us and he was always very courtous and helpful. Dean was very passionate about the area and made for a memorable experience. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone, much better than going in a coach load of people. I can't wait to go back and try some of his other fun summer adventures.

“Dam Good Hoover Dam Tour”
Reviewed 15 January 2012

Dean was a great tour guide full of fun facts and historical facts. He was on-time, energetic, knowledgeable, and accommodating. I couldn't ask for a better guide. It was a pity he had to turn us over to the Natl Park Service tour guide at the dam....boring.
The dam is an engineering marvel, especially when you realize what it took to do this in 1931 - wow! Learning all the sideline stories from Dean made for a fascinating trip, if you enjoy history.
