Mary_B, Jan 2023
It was amazing to see that the dam was built by men using very basic tools and very little safety equipment! Also, hard to believe how much the water has receded! Pam, our guide, was a wealth of information. The 3 hour tour was just the right amount of time. Definitely recommend!

Colette_W, Jan 2023
I was surprised to cross into Arizona. I didn’t realize the state line was there. I was also surprised by the low water level and how barren the landscape is. The guide gave lots of history and interesting information about the dam and the whole area. It was a very informative experience.
Great Experience!

Chris was an excellent tour guide. He talked about the history of the dam as well as how the past has affected the present. He had a great understanding of the current lack of water and how it has affected Nevada. Very valuable information for someone living in the Midwest.
So worth it!
