Departure & Return

Departure Point

  • Traveler pickup is offered
    We limit the amount of hotels we visit for pickups, so that we can spend more time at the Dam, and less time on the bus doing pickups. Our hotels for pickup are strategically placed up and down the strip including downtown, so your own hotel should be either right next door or a very short walk away from where you will meet the bus.

Departure Time

  • 8:00 AM

What To Expect

Following pickup at select Las Vegas hotels, climb in to the climate-controlled vehicle for the 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. This excursion is one of the only from Las Vegas to offer this option. Stop by the bypass bridge to see the dam from above, before hopping back into your bus to head back to Las Vegas.

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

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

Las Vegas

We proudly offer a designated bus driver (for safety) and step-on tour guide (for entertainment and information). Our drivers do not double as tour guides. Start your tour with pickup from select Las Vegas hotels and we don't take you to a central location to reload onto a different bus. You will go out on the bus you were picked up in. Limiting pick-ups and traveling on one bus allows us to save time and get back early. It can take hours to pull in and out of every hotel. By limiting pick-ups to 7 we are usually the first bus company to Hoover Dam. En route, your guide entertains and answers questions Hoover Dam, its history and/or the Las Vegas area.

Traveler Tips

One thing to keep in mind - this is a government facility and being able to go inside the dam is sometimes difficult or the lines are long.
Keeping in mind, you may have a long wait in line to do this but you can.
Be sure to allow until 4pm before you are back at the hotel.

Pietro_C, Jan 2022
Our your guide, Harrison, did a great job. Our driver was great as well. I think his name was Mo. Although we were not able to go to the inside of the Dam, the time spent in Boulder City made for a great alternative.
A magnificent fete—-Hoover Dam—an American wonder
nancy_m, Jan 2022
The tour was most enjoyable & informative. Our guide, Trevor, was excellent & funny. He is a comic by trade. The tour was inclusive, as was lunch, which was very good & organized. I would definitely recommend this tour.
Awesome Hoover Dam Experience
Raquel_E, Jan 2022
Amazing views and the perfect amount of stops. Our guide was fantastic! The jokes were funny along with all the historical information he shared. He also made us all feel very comfortable and didn’t rush us at all.

Shawn_C, Jan 2022
Our tour guide was very comical and fun to be around. Didn't get to do inside the dam tour. Which wasn't his fault. But, think it shouldn't have been advertised that way. Overall a very good experience, I would use them again
Nice tour
Teresa_S, Jan 2022
Really enjoyed everything about it except the feeling of not having enough time. Especially for lunch. The food was excellent, but was really rushed to finish all of it. 15 more minutes would have made this a five star ratting.
Aww inspiring

Historical tidbits were interesting and the museum was good but too crowded when the folks in front stopped to read everything. Lunch was cold.
A great Sunday experience😊.

Wayne_M, Jan 2022
The dam was exciting and beautiful but the inside tour was closed which I feel should have been disclosed when we booked the tour. The tour guide and driver were very good
Some jokes not appropriate. Yet our Tour guide/ comedian Trevor very knowledgeable
Art_M, Jan 2022
Not knowing what to expect, we were pleased. Our tour guide/ comedian Trevor/Trez was a font of knowledge about the Dam. He was personable, pleasant and relatable. There was only a small snippet of time that he wasn’t narrating. The Omelet House is where we stopped for a meal on our way back. We were given a card on the bus with 5 meal choices and we marked our choice. Trevor then called those in to the restaurant. When we arrived everything was ready for us. The service was amazing. I am gluten free and my only choice was a hamburger without the bun. It was ok, not the best. The spuds were huge potato slices lightly crisped and very good. Now for my advice for a better experience. We lost our son and granddaughter recently to the poison of drugs. It pierced our heart to hear all of the “jokes” about heroin, meth, cocaine, pot, alcohol, and prostitution. Please, please dial that language down. It’s not funny. It took away from everything else.
