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.

Our driver was right on time for pick-up, very friendly and explained numerous things about Las Vegas as we drove to/from the dam. He was very knowledgeable about the dam too. The vehicle was very clean, roomy, and comfortable. Would definitely recommend this trip with this provider!

Our guide Tom was wonderful. On the way down to the dam he provided us with a detailed history of not only the dam but Las Vegas and the surrounding area. Much better the watching a video. Since we had limited time at the dam he gave us useful tips on how to navigate the tour efficiently.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

Great tour! Our guide was prompt to pick us up and was very knowledgeable and friendly. The tour of the dam itself was really good. I recommend the morning tour so you don't wait in the security line as long! Only improvement would be a little more time exploring the outside of the dam.

Fabulous tour of Hoover Dam. I've been to Hoover Dam many times but this trip was the best. I saw things I never saw before. I'm so glad I took it in the morning too. When we were leaving we saw all the traffic going into Hoover Dam. Plus it wasn't as hot in the morning. Unfortunately I never got our driver's name.
