What You Can Expect

Ultimate Hoover Dam Tour

Guided walk over Hoover Dam

Following pickup at select Las Vegas hotels, climb in to the climate-controlled van for the 45-minute drive to the Hoover Dam. Get to know your guide and small group along the way, learning about Hoover Dam history through your guide's commentary.

Upon arrival, start your visit with the Powerplant Tour. Descend 524 feet (160 meters) into the walls of the Black Canyon to see the Nevada Powerwing. Stroll through the generators and see the enormous pipe inside one of the diversion tunnels. After poking around in the depths of the earth, take the elevator back up to the Visitor Center. Get a full picture of the Hoover Damn's history through the exhibits and displays that show the building of the dam and its daily operations.

The highlight of this tour is the Walk on the Top portion: trek over the top of the dam itself for 45 minutes. This excursion is one of the only from Las Vegas to offer this option. Pause for photographs of Lake Mead before hopping back into your minivan to head back to Las Vegas.

During the trip home, stop for lunch and a chocolate factory to fuel up after your day of learning, seeing and doing. 

Your 6.5-hour tour concludes with drop-off back at your hotel in Las Vegas.

Great value for money includes trip to Memorial Bridge, power plant tower and visit to Boulder City museum, lunch stop and visit to chocolate factory. Tour guide Trevor was very well informed and gave a non stop commentary with observational comedy along the way, some comedy was lost on me being from UK, and would have liked a break from comedy to observe the views along the way.

Trever made our trip the best ever. Not only was he informative but he is eye candy for the women and made us laugh all through the trip. He is a great asset for the company and very polite to his guests. I can't say enough about Trever. I just hope you keep him around for a long time and increase his salery. Great PR person for you.

This is fantastic tour. Very well informed guide and extremely funny. He had to work hard to make us laugh in the beginning, of course it was a Monday before 8 AM, once he warm us up, we really had a great time.

Glad we found this tour. Being elderly, I didn't trust hubby to drive out to the dam. The walk up to the Bypass Bridge was grueling for us but we are glad we made it. The view was awesome and the view from the top of the dam looking towards the bridge was just amazing. It was great to just sit back and enjoy the ride which was not long at all. Thanks to Tom for being an excellent driver and to Jason for entertaining us and letting us have a nap time on the way back.
Please work on a tour to Carlsbad Caverns - would love to tour with you again. Kathy S

Great tour! Trevor was our guide and he was awesome. I like the way the dam is presented, first stopping at the Bridge, then going down to the dam. Never felt rushed, though we moved along well. Lunch was good and the stop was Ethyl M's put a perfect end. Pick up and drop off was easy. Highly recommend this trip for anyone going to Hoover Dam.
