You’ll cross over the top of the dam, then pause for 15 to 20 minutes at the Arizona Lookout, which offers a great perspective on the entire dam area, including the Bypass Bridge.

You’ll have some free time to shop or visit the Hoover Dam restaurant, then begin the return trip to Las Vegas, where this tour concludes with drop-off at your original departure point.

Thanks Margaret for your gracious comments. Yes, the Hoover Dam, despite its age of nearly 90 years is truly an architectual achievement that is still visited by nearly 1 million people annually. So glad you enjoyed your tour of this civil engineering landmark. Please come see us again and perhaps consider one of our other fabulous tours. Happy New Year to all and please stay safe!

Expected better
TAMARA_W, Jul 2022
When booking I sent that we had a power scooter, but at pickup we were informed that they could not accommodate it. Also, the bus was very late and super hot. My 7 year old got sick on the bus from lack of air conditioning and my mother-in-law sweated profusely and almost got sick as well. The tour itself at the Hoover Dam was beautiful!
Great Hoover Dam experience
Linda_H, May 2022
Mr. G was so informative. The van was very comfortable. All four of us enjoyed every minute. Would recommend for everyone

Wrong pick up time
Lucille_T, Jun 2022
The trip was good and the tour guide great. The only thing that went wrong was that the supplier sent us wrong pick up time information that reseulted in us waking up 2 hours earlier. That was awful since that pick up time was at 8 am and they sent a message that it was 6:30 am.
Response from Host, Jun 2022
You certainly have our apologies for the incorrect pick up time and we will investigate the cause of this unfortunate error. On the other hand, so glad you enjoyed you tour to the Hoover Dam as it is a magnificent place to visit. Cpome see us again, please.
Excellent
karen_a, Mar 2022
Driver was excellent, got to walk over the Pat Tillman bridge and the Hoover Dam. Excellent views. Plenty of free time at the dam. We elected to go to the visitor museum. Can go inside the dam now.

Roddy_L, Jul 2022
Amazing Experience, we were pleased with the whole outing. We would recommend to friends and family.
Response from Host, Aug 2022
So glad you enjoyed your Hoover Dam tour with Sweetours. The Hoover Dam is a remarkable civil engineering landmark, nearly 100 years old, and a "must see" for visitors to southern Nevada. Thanks for your gracious comments and we hope to see you on another tour real soon. Be safe and please stay healthy.
Not Deaf friendly
Brent_B, Aug 2022
What makes the tour undesirable is the fact that it is NOT Deaf friendly. They will not provide an interpreter which is against ada laws I called 2 weeks before to set up interpreter to find this out. And then I found my own interpreter and they made the working interpreter pay for their tour
Response from Host, Aug 2022
I am so sorry about your recent experience during your tour to Hoover Dam. Regretably we are not able to provide interpretation resources on scheduled tours. I am happy you were able to secure an interpreter such that you could enjoy the tour. Unfortunately we have to charge customers that occupy a seat during the tour, which basically includes everyone above two years old. When we give away a free seat, it significantly cuts into our profit margin. Thanks again for your comments and please stay safe, healthy and close to family and friends.
