Hoover Dam

Daily 9am - 5pm
Hwy. 93, Boulder City

The Basics

The dam is a popular day-trip destination from Las Vegas and transportation options range from comedy buses, Hummers, and mountain bikes. On-site, tour the power plant, learn how the dam generates and distributes electricity, and see stunning views of the surrounding riverways, canyons, and valleys. Some tours even combine a Hoover Dam visit with shooting range stops, excursions to the Grand Canyon’s West Rim, or a cruise on Lake Mead. Want a bird’s-eye view? Opt for a flightseeing helicopter tour instead.

Hoover Dam Tour from Las Vegas
My husband and I chose the half day tour, and we're extremely pleased with our trip! It ended up being a couple hours longer than we anticipated (I believe it said 4.5 hours, and from the tike we were picked up to drop off was about 5 or 5.5 hours) but we were totally fine with it! We made several stops and had ample opportunities to take pictures and see different views. We loved hearing the history of the Hoover Dam. The bus was clean and heated/cooled. We would definitely recommend!

Grand Canyon West Rim Bus Tour with Hoover Dam Stop, Meals and Optional Upgrades
Our day trip to the Grand Canyon with GreyLine was amazing. Our tour guide/ driver, Freddi was brilliant. He told us stories and shared lots of information on route and about the Hoover Dam and the Grand Canyon. He made us laugh a lot and he really helped make our experience fantastic. I would definitely recommend this trip to everyone. It was a phenomenal experience and it’s almost indescribable the immensity of the west rim Grand Canyon.

Grand Canyon, Hoover Dam, 7 Magic Mountains Small Group VIP Tour
Reuben, our driver and tour guide, made visiting the Grand Canyon and the Hoover Dam one of the best part of my Trip to Vegas. He knew where to take the best photo, he took photos, and he was very funny. The group trip was small which made the experience more memorable. I highly recommend Reuben and this tour company.

Grand Canyon West plus Hoover Dam VIP Day Tour from Las Vegas
An absolutely must do - very experienced tour guide (Art) who allowed ample time to take in the breathtaking views across the Canyon and Hoover Dam, finishing with the tour of the historic city of Boulder City. Great value for money, and well organised with no waiting around for others.

Mountain Bike Historical Tunnel Trail to Hoover Dam from Las Vegas
We travelled in April and decided to schedule the mountain bike tour to the Hoover Dam. Neil, our tour guide was amazing. We also had the privilege of having Gabe, who was in training to be a mountain bike guide. Both gentlemen were knowledgeable of the history of the area and geological terrain. My 17 year old son, who is a History enthusiast, found the guides informative. Totally recommend this tour.

When to Get There

Inside Hoover Dam

A Hoover Dam tour features much more than just a 726-foot (221-meter) wall. Explore tunnels that were bored directly into the mountainside, hear the harrowing tales of workers who carved them out by hand, and tour the power plant. The Hoover Dam Visitor Center offers even more info about America’s most famous dam.
