Max Max was a phenomenal guide. Full of energy and took the time to get to know everyone in the group and always called us by name. Genuinely interested in where we all came from, why we were in Vegas, and what we did back home. Lots of great information about the area. Gave great recommendations on places to eat and shows to see. Shared tons of photos with the group. I would have to say Max is the best guide in the Woooooooooorld! I would highly recommend.

a fantastic few hours taking in the breathtaking views and learning about the history of how the dam was built. The seven Magic mountains was spectacular, set against the backdrop of the Mohave desert. Our tour guide Luis had an excellent knowledge and was very friendly
