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.

Brilliant driver excellent well organised on time and very informative.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2015

We really enjoyed our trip to the Hoover Dam, took about 4 hours total, which is a perfect amount of time to spend away from the hustle of Las Vegas without taking a whole day way from the fun.
The driver was really friendly and informative, kept us amused all the way with facts and information about the areas we were driving through.
The hoover Dam is amazing, so many amazing photo opportunities and it was genuinely fascinating learning about the building of the Dam.
The driver very kindly let us eat our huge burgers in his pristine hummer on the way home, after waiting a lot longer than expected for them to be cooked!!
Overall a really good and reasonably priced trip. A couple of strip cab driver quotes us nearly as much just to drive us to and from, and it wouldn't have been nearly as fun.
