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

A visit to the Hoover Dam paired with a Colorado River Float is a unique way to explore this momentous slice of U.S. History. During your tour you’ll enjoy ample time learning about this engineering wonder of the world through live presentations, exhibits, and a captivating film that investigates the Dam’s backstory and construction. Cap off your outing with a visit to see the power plant’s massive generators and some time on the observation deck.

Later, you’ll be treated to sensational views of the Colorado River and Lake Mead, the Western Hemisphere’s largest man made lake. Board a van at the Lake Mead Overlook, and drive along the route on Lower Portal Road that the Dam crews of yesteryear once traveled. On the way you can see the original gauging station that measured water level and flow as well as the storage bunkers that held dynamite during the Dam’s construction.

Next, get ready for some breathtaking views. A guided raft tour will take you floating on the Colorado River for an up-close and rarely seen look at the Hoover Dam, its power plants, and the stunning Black Canyon. Your guide will share tidbits of history as you float along the river beneath the extraordinary panorama of the Hoover Dam Bypass project—a 2,000-foot bridge built in 2010 spanning over 900 feet. Be sure to have your camera on hand as this tour gives you an incredible vantage point to capture photographs of the Hoover Dam and Colorado River.

Trip was excellent!!! The tour was educational, interesting, and fun. Our tour guide was one of the best. He gave us information from the time we left the hotel till we returned. He was friendly and made sure everyone was together and could have the best view of the dam. He even takes great pictures for you! Enjoyed the boat ride and the tour inside the dam. We would do this tour again it was so good. We had perfect weather for the boat ride and the tour.

Jerry met us on time and was a great guide with an excellent sense of humour. he kept us informed throughout the trip - remembered everyone by name and was a credit to your Company. He made the trip interesting as he was extremely knowledgeable about the various sites we went to. it's unlikely we will be back but maybe Jerry might move to another area where we can have him again. Many thanks for a really good Tour

Tommy, our damn dam guide was one of the best guides that we have ever had on any excursion that we have ever done. He went above and beyond our expectations. The tour itself was pretty fascinating to learn more about the Dam. Would definitely recommend this tour especially if Tommy is your guide.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

It was hot but our guide in the jeep kept us supplied with bottled water all along the trip. The trip was hot under the blazing sun, but our guide made up for it with her commentary and taking us out of the itinerary to see the mountain goats. She is great for the jeep company
