What You Can Expect

Ultimate Hoover Dam Tour

Guided walk over Hoover Dam

Start your 6.5-hour Hoover Dam tour with hotel pickup from selected Las Vegas hotels. Hop aboard the air-conditioned minivan for transport to Hoover Dam, an approximate 45-minute drive away. En route, your guide enlightens your small group with encyclopedic knowledge on all aspects of Hoover Dam and its history.

On arrival, you’ll begin with a Powerplant tour. Travel 524 feet (160 meters) into the walls of Black Canyon to view the Nevada Powerwing, generators and a 30-foot-diameter (9-meter) pipe inside one of the four diversion tunnels.

Next, head into the Hoover Dam Visitor Center where you can see the history of Hoover Dam and view numerous exhibits that explain how the dam was built, how it operates and who benefits from the water and electricity.

Then take a fully guided Walk on the Top tour — a comprehensive 45-minute walking tour over the top of the dam. Snap photographs of Lake Mead at the scenic Lake Mead Overlook before enjoying an early afternoon lunch at a restaurant on the way back to Las Vegas (see menu options below).

You’ll make a short but sweet stop at Ethel M's Chocolate Factory and hear Vegas trivia about Howard Hughes, the mafia and more before drop-off at selected hotels.


Sample Menu Options (choose one):
  • Half fresh-baked turkey breast sandwich and homemade soup of the day
  • Grilled chicken breast sandwich served with homemade cucumber salad
  • BBQ pulled pork sandwich served with fries
  • Boulder burger and fries (1/3 lb burger served with lettuce, tomato and condiments on the side)
  • Avocado, lettuce, tomato and cheddar cheese sandwich on wheat bread, served with homemade cucumber salad
  • Garden salad with cheddar cheese, tomatoes, olives, broccoli and sliced egg

Jason and John were great tour hosts. We had a great day. The Hoover Dam tour was fantastic as were most of the stories Jason told us and almost as unbelievable. We would recommend this tour to everyone. The small group experience is definitely better that a large coach tour.

Great tour. Made even better because Jason was our guide. just wished that the family from Denver joined the Chicago boys when we surrounded the other tour group and made alien noises...Jason would understand

The driver and guide were very informative and kept us all laughing to and from the dam. The surrounding area around the dam was beautiful desert mountains while the dam was a wonder to behold. The tour inside of the dam to tour the power plant was also very interesting. I would highly recommend it to anyone.
