Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

What You Can Expect

Hoover Dam Top to Bottom by Luxury SUV with Colorado River Float

Hoover Dam Top to Bottom

A visit to the Hoover Dam paired with a Colorado River Float is a unique way to explore this momentous slice of U.S. History. During your tour you’ll enjoy ample time learning about this engineering wonder of the world through live presentations, exhibits, and a captivating film that investigates the Dam’s backstory and construction. Cap off your outing with a visit to see the power plant’s massive generators and some time on the observation deck.

Later, you’ll be treated to sensational views of the Colorado River and Lake Mead, the Western Hemisphere’s largest man made lake. Board a van at the Lake Mead Overlook, and drive along the route on Lower Portal Road that the Dam crews of yesteryear once traveled. On the way you can see the original gauging station that measured water level and flow as well as the storage bunkers that held dynamite during the Dam’s construction.

Next, get ready for some breathtaking views. A guided raft tour will take you floating on the Colorado River for an up-close and rarely seen look at the Hoover Dam, its power plants, and the stunning Black Canyon. Your guide will share tidbits of history as you float along the river beneath the extraordinary panorama of the Hoover Dam Bypass project—a 2,000-foot bridge built in 2010 spanning over 900 feet. Be sure to have your camera on hand as this tour gives you an incredible vantage point to capture photographs of the Hoover Dam and Colorado River.

This was fantastic! It provided an incredible view of the majesty of the Hoover Dam. Adding to that was the hidden view of little tunnels along the waterline of the mountainside. The silence we experienced while in the boat was..well, total silence. Recommend to all!

Really enjoyed this morning long trip that took in the full Hoover Dam experience, you will get to know everything worth knowing about the dam and more about the history around the construction. The raft ride was good and got us as close to the dam as was allowable. Jerry, our guide, was brilliant all day long and made everyone feel well looked after. Highly recommended!!


5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2016

This was one of the best things we did on our trip. The tour guide was fantastic and a plethora of knowledge about every detail of Vegas growth and development over the years to environmental and animal life. On time, comfortable and worth every penny.

My husband and I took this tour on a recent trip to Las Vegas and it was time and money well spent. The van was clean and comfortable and the driver prompt, courteous and friendly. It allowed us access to parts of the dam area we would not have seen on our own due to heightened security measures: the power plant side of the dam and the Colorado River, the interior of the power plant, and the ability to walk across and take photos from the new Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge. Highly recommended for access to the dam and a different perspective from the Colorado River.
