My DH absolutely does not want to rent a car. He would prefer to take a tour to Hoover Dam. Has anyone ever done one, and if so, which one did you take. I went online, and there is a comedy tour. It has a professional comedian as the tour guide. It includes a guided walking tour across the top of the dam, lunch at the historic Boulder Dam Hotel, admission to the Depart. of Interior discovery tour, admission to Boulder dam museum, a movie on the construction, tour of Boulder City and the "dingbat" houses, and a stop at some fudge place. Does anyone have any opinion on this?

We wanted to see Hoover Dam last summer... and only Hoover Dam. We did not want a tour that went to other places, stopped for lunch etc.

We booked the Showtime Tours mini tour through the hotel, they picked us up at the hotel and returned us afterwards.

The tour was about $35 plus $12 for access to the visitor's center and the tour inside the dam. The $12 was optional but you should take that option. We had plenty of time for the tour, visitors center, and walking around the top of the dam.

The site gets more crowded as the day goes on, we were on the first departure of the day and really had a better time since we did not have to deal with the crowds that were arriving later in the morning when we were leaving. It was worth getting up early! We were back in time for a late lunch and spent the afternoon by the pool at the Mirage.

The driver kept up a patter the whole time and was pretty funny, he stopped for a couple photo ops on the way back.
