Your trip to Las Vegas won't be complete without a tour of the mighty Hoover Dam! Built during the Depression, thousands of men came to Black Canyon to tame the Colorado River, and it took them less than 5 years to build the largest dam of its time.


  • Upgrade to include a 90-minute Lake Mead Cruise
  • Two-hour Hoover Dam Discovery Tour
  • Optional Visit to Ethel M's Chocolate Factory
  • Entertaining and informative commentary from your professional driver/guide
  • Pickup and drop-off from most Las Vegas hotels

Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

The half-day tour gives you two hours of free time at Hoover Dam; the full-day tour incudes a stop at Ethel M's Chocolate Factory, a local favorite; and the full-day with cruise package lets you picnic on a paddle-wheeler on Lake Mead. Whichever option you choose, it's a great value!

Great tour of Hoover Dam. It covered the history of the project, construction, power plant, great views of the bypass bridge and ended with us walking around on the dam. Our tour guide and driver on the bus were informative and mixed in a little humor. We were pleasantly surprised with the two extra stops for photo ops at the Las Vegas sign and at an overlook of Lake Mead. The only negative was our hotel pick up. We were told the bus would have a Grey Line sign on the side or in the window, it had neither and it was confusing with all the bus traffic pulling through.
