8:00 AM

After booking, the operator will contact you about pickup time.

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.
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.
Itinerary
Stop At:  
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.

5 🌟 isn't enough.
Linda_S

5 🌟 is not enough to give Dan, guide, and Ken, driver. This was one of the best tours I've ever taken. "Comedy on deck" was the tour guide company. What an asset to Viator. Dan was very knowledgeable and helpful in the explanation of the Dam. Upon leaving the Dam, Dan got a call that 2 passengers from another group were left behind at the dam. Ken safely turned the bus around to go back and pick them up. Dan didn't hesitate to help. He did get some flack from others passengers on our tour bus but handled himself extremely professionally and courteously. Lunch was wonderful at the restaurant. They waited for us to get there since we ended up being late. Food was hot and delicious. Thanx for a great tour.

Extremely disappointing experience !!

We signed up for this expensive tour because we wanted to see the inside of the Hoover Dam. As we prepared to board the bus at 8AM we were told the inside tour was not operating. We discovered this information was known at least a week in advance but was not shared with us. To take up the time we went to Boulder Nevada which was basically deserted and 95% of the stores were closed. A total waste of time and money. The bus driver Ken was great. The tour guide Dan incompetent, offensive, and foul mouthed. He spoke consistently about his family, his drinking, and his other career as a comedian. He kept telling us the entire trip he was drunk. Instead of telling us history or interesting facts about the area or towns we heard about his diabetes, weight loss, and comedy editions. We were late heading to the restaurant but without consulting a full hungry bus of people he turned the bus back to Hoover Dam to pick up two people another driver forgot. Making our lunch happen at 3 PM. He should be banned from Viator sold tours. Never, never take this tour from Comedy tours.

The tour got off to a bad start when the guide told us as we were loading the bus that the plant tour in the Dam was cancelled due to Covid. He explained we could not go and get a refund but also stated since we were already there we should go. We talked to another couple who had booked thru a different company and they were told when they purchased the tour the plant portion was cancelled. We did decide to go ahead and go even if a little reluctantly. The remainder of the day seemed very rushed. Most likely due to getting a late start. The bus picked us up about 20 minutes late and we still had several more stops after that. A couple of suggestions would be to 1. Add a little more time to the length of the tour so it’s not so rushed at each stop 2. Give more information on meal time at the beginning of the tour. We didn’t stop for lunch until we were on our way back and were pretty hungry by that time.
