What You Can Expect

Hoover Dam Hummer Tour

Hoover Dam Hummer H2 Tour

A day trip from Las Vegas to the Hoover Dam should be done in luxury – let a driver pick you up at your Las Vegas hotel in a specially equipped Hummer H2 and drive you south to the Hoover Dam. On the way, you can watch a DVD about the dam; you’ll fill up on quick facts as you travel through Boulder City, past Lake Mead and through the entrance of the Black Canyon. When you reach the dam, you’ll be ready for the Discovery Tour.

What to see and do on the Discovery Tour:
Theater Level Displays: Wander through the photos, maps, murals and displays that document the history of the Hoover Dam. Watch the video, How the West was Won, which details the Bureau of Reclamation’s part in growing food and taming the rivers and the desert.

The Power Plant Generators: Plummet 500 feet (152.4 m) down into the Black Canyon’s walls on the dam elevators and walk through the 250-foot (76.2 m) tunnel drilled out of rock. You’ll see the Nevada wing of the power plant, which is 650 feet (198.12 m) long, and its eight generators.

The Exhibit Gallery: Head up to the Plaza Level and browse the exhibits that feature the region’s natural history and show how the dam used to be operated and how it operates today.

Don’t forget your camera – in addition to the stunning views, you may get lucky and spot big horn sheep.

Your total tour duration is inclusive of hotel pickup and drop-off and travel time to and from the Dam; you will have approximately 2-hours at the Dam for touring.

Please note: the listed price does not include a $5 per person fuel surcharge, payable at the time of tour check-in.

The entire trip was great. Our driver was entertaining and very knowledgeable. The Hummer was quiet and much smoother than I expected from that type of vehicle. It was great to have water offered before and after the tour.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

A truly fantastic trip and worth every penny. Our 10yr old grandson was thrilled when the hummer pulled up. It was such a brilliant surprise and made the day extra special. Our guide was Scott. He was absolutely charming and very knowledgable. He actually spotted 3 long horn sheep high up on the hills during our drive to the Dam. A comfortable and stress free way to see the Hoover Dam and surrounding area. Having such a fun driver was an added bonus.

Great Tour with Bob ... Lots of information about Vegas and Hoover Dam on the way to/from the Dam .. Nice that it was pick up/ drop off at our hotel and within four hours. Agree with other reviews to go on the morning tour as the traffic into the Dam was increasing when we were leaving .. Great Tour!
