My sister and I were scheduled for Hoover Dam/Lake Mead Tour, however, there were not enough people booked for the tour to proceed, so we were offered the Valley of Fire Tour instead. Valley of Fire was spectacular. Amazing scenery and views. Our tour guide Denny was outstanding. He really made the trip enjoyable. He was friendly and gave us lots of information, answered everyone’s questions and helped all of us taking photos and pointing out the best spots for photos. I would highly recommend Valley of Fire and ask for tour guide Denny. He is the best!

Our driver & guide, Marvin, was very knowledgeable about Hoover Dam and surrounding areas. He was was helpful with decisions about where to stop and made the day tour really pleasant by taking photos, asking about our preferences, and providing an assortment of snacks & beverages. I would definitely request and recommend our driver and the service company again.
