Why Travelers Choose This Tour
Enjoy a relaxing ride with photo ops instead of driving yourself, and go into the dam to see the generators.
Your small-group tour starts with pick up from your Las Vegas Strip or downtown hotel at approximately 8am. Head out with your certified interpretive guide on a tour that includes the dam's Visitor Center with its fascinating Hoover Dam movie and historical displays. In addition, the tour takes you in an elevator down over 500 ft. to the generator room located on the Nevada side of the dam.
Located in Black Canyon on the Colorado River, the Hoover Dam was once the largest dam in the world. It is an outstanding achievement, noteworthy not only for its enormous dimensions, complex design and intricate construction, but also for its illustration of mans outstanding ability to overcome the desert's summer sun, the vagaries of a treacherous river and the extreme hazards of great heights on the chasm's sheer walls. The building of the dam also created Lake Mead, North America's largest man-made reservoir.
Before returning to Las Vegas, enjoy a stop at a local park where herds of Big Horn Sheep often come down from the surrounding mountains (seasonal) to graze on the sweet grass.
As part of your tour, you will receive a complimentary guide on the geology and history of the dam, Native American history, local flora and fauna information and many other interesting tidbits!
Very fun and interesting half day trip! Mike was a fantastic guide and shared a lot of history about the area and some good tips on sites and events to see in Las Vegas that were helpful during the rest of our stay in the city.
Chris Jones was great. He made the Hoover dam tour fun. Provided just enough history and facts along the way. The elevators were not working on that day, but we saw plenty and he compensated by adding additional view points. On the way back fun ride through Boulder City and we saw a bunch of rams by the highway. Historical way to get off the strip for a few hours. Highly recommend.
Had a fantastic afternoon visiting the Hoover Dam. Our driver Mike was the absolute BEST!! Gave us so much information about the Dam as well as tidbits of everything along the way. Would definitely recommend Viator for any excursion. Extremely friendly and very informative
Weather was wonderful and our guide Craig did a great job. This is perfect for a quick overview of the dam without taking up your whole day. Great to get away from the Strip for a bit. Craig was very accommodating, helpful and knowledgeable.
Dennis was our driver, super nice guy. He picked us early in the morning, the vehicle was nice and we were about 10 people. He stopped before we reached Hoover Dam for breakfast and bathroom break. he was a great tour guide and shared a lot of interesting information about the places we drove by. We arrived the the Dam and he bought our tickets, then we joined the other people there and got different guide. the whole trip was about 6 hours. On our way back we stopped by Lake Mead and took some really nice photos. Dennis also saw big horn sheep nearby and stopped for us to take pictures.
Great company and trip. Clayton (driver and guide) was very personable, knowledgeable, and very friendly. The van arrived a little early, was clean, and quite comfortable for the trip. If you are in Vegas, I highly recommend this trip for a Hoover Dam visit. Just enough time!
This was a great 5 hour tour! Our tour guide was great and was very informative. She made the trip a great experience and would definitely recommend this tour and guide to anyone interested in the Hoover dam.
