After, ride to Lake Mead Marina, where you board a paddle-wheel steamboat for scenic views and a deli-style lunch. Reboard the luxury coach for the ride back to Las Vegas, stopping at the Ethel M Chocolate Factory for a sweet treat before drop-off at your hotel.

We paid $109 each for the Gray Line Hoover Dam and Lake Mead Cruise. We were staying at the Luxor but had to be picked up from Excalibur which wasn’t too bad as it’s only over the road from the North Entrance of the Luxor. Coach pick up was 5 late and then we had to be taken to

We met the bus at the hotel across the street, NY NY Hotel from the MGM. I would - it to make sure you find the main valet entrance easily. Pick up was about 15 minutes late as previous people were a little late but we still got the tour center by 9:30. We got off the pick up

Response from Zachary B, General Manager at Hoover Dam Tour With Lake Mead Cruise from Las Vegas
Responded 22 Nov 2019
Dear 8u11d0g, Thank you for being a Gray Line customer. We are sorry that you did not enjoy your day with us more and we are sorry for the slight delay you experienced.. We have been taking people on excursions to the Hoover Dam for nearly 40 years and thousands of people very year seem to think we provide a great experience, however everyone's expectations do vary and we are sorry we missed yours. In closing, I would like to point out that sightseeing companies, as with all transportation providers, do not guarantee transit times. We do our best to stick to a schedule, yet deviations can occur for a myriad of reasons, some that may be obvious to passengers and others that may not. Once again, we are sorry for the delay you experienced. Sincerely, Zachary
