What You Can Expect

Hoover Dam Top to Bottom by Luxury SUV with Colorado River Float

Hoover Dam Top to Bottom by Luxury SUV with Colorado River Float

The Hoover Dam by Luxury SUV and Colorado River Float offers ample time for exploring this National Historic Landmark and engineering wonder of the world. See live presentations, a fascinating film on the Dam's construction and history, exhibit gallery, observation deck, and venture down to the observation room in the power plant to view the massive generators.

You'll also encounter dramatic views of both the Colorado River and Lake Mead, the largest man-made body of water in the Western Hemisphere. From the Lake Mead Overlook, you're transported to the Colorado River by van on the Lower Portal Road, where construction crews traveled each day. You'll see the original gauging station used to measure water level and flow, and dynamite storage bunkers used during construction.

Then, a guided Colorado River float tour by raft offers you close-up views few people have ever seen of Hoover Dam, mighty power plants, and Black Canyon. You'll also learn historical facts and get an astounding view of the Hoover Dam Bypass project and construction of the nearly 2,000-foot-long bridge spanning over 900 feet above the river. This tour offers absolutely the best photo opportunity of the Hoover Dam and Colorado River!

Please note: due to low water levels at the Hoover Dam, this tour will not be available from October 30, 2012 to November 1, 2012.

Beautiful views of the Dam. The river excursion provided an amazing perspective of the magnitude of the Dam project. Well worth the time and money!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2015

Fantastic tour, the dam is MASSIVE, river float was brilliant the sun came out as we were floating along the river, the guide was very entertaining and informative. We thought that we were going to do the full dam tour and were slightly disappointed that we only saw part of it while others carried on for the full tour, had we been given the chance, we would have paid extra for the full tour as I am sure others in our group would have done. Having said that the tour was very good and our guide Jim C from the tour provider was fantastic 'part of the family' for a few hours

Prompt pick up at pre arranged point. Fabulous UNMISSABLE jeep, very comfortable and with only 9 seats and 6 of us, felt like our own private tour. Very informative driver who gave us the low down on the area as he drove us to our first stop to look out over Lake Mead, and then on to our transfer to a larger vehicle for the drive down to the Colorada River float. Informative and humerous skipper took us for a short cruise.Beautiful views of the river. A little unsteady getting down to the raft, as nearer the river we had to negoiate across rocks and they are obviously uneven, so need to be careful. The Hover Dam was very impressive and we were given free time to explore the Dam after finishing our guided tour. We had a light lunch on the jeep and were also given bottled water. Lovely experience

We had an amazing time. The sights along our trip were amazing, along with all the sites within the Dam. Our guide seemed a little tired and not really into sharing his day with us, but he ok. He answered questions when asked and occasionally gave some useful info. The guide on our raft was good. He was comical and kept us entertained while giving us information about the Dam. I enjoyed the river raft time the best. We were a little rushed to get back to our main guide, didn't have a lot of time to shop at the end, but we got back to our pink jeep and was on our way. The tipping requirements for the guide were a little high to our liking, especially since he wasn't the best of guides. All in all this is a great tour and worth taking.

From the start of our trip with the tour operators, our guide Pam made this an informative, fun and worthwhile trip. A ride to the Hoover Dam was comfortable and fun. Pam definitely knows Her stuff! We started off with our boat ride on the Colorado River and the guide again was funny and informative, an excellent ride. Amazing photos to be taken. We then headed up to the Dam and did the tour inside. So glad we did this tour, you cannot explain the size of the generators, you just need to see them ! Excellent tour, full of facts and interesting insight into how it was built. Once the tour finished, you were given ample time to take photos and walk about the top of the Dam. You given snacks and plenty of bottled water. Highly recommended this tour.
