Following pickup at select Las Vegas hotels, climb in to the climate-controlled vehicle for the 45-minute 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.

The highlight of this tour is the Walk on the Top portion: trek over the top of the dam itself for 45 minutes. 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.

This was a great tour. Got to go into the Dam and see how it all works.
It's an amazing thing - The Hoover Dam. Just how it was built........how it was accomplished back in those days.

Jason our guide provided a very funny, informed and enjoyable Hoover Dam Tour. His patter was amusing if sometimes a little hard for a Baby Boomer to follow. We stopped with plenty of time to view Hoover Dam and the exhibits. Could have used a little more time to walk the O’Callaghan-Tillman Bridge. Lunch was hot and delicious. Gary was a skilled, careful driver. Would recommend this as a fine tour of Hoover Dam but budget a full day.

Steve (the driver) and Trez were both very friendly, had great comradeship and good energy. Trez gave out information along the way and included some comedy in his delivery. It was very easy listening and pleasant. The actually dam was great to see up close and walk around although we didn’t make it on the first elevator down to the power plant tour portion so we got separated from the group (limited space) and had less time to mingle around the top area afterward, to take pictures, see the old dam model, gift shop etc. So that felt very rushed and wasn’t ideal but we still enjoyed seeing what we did. Then we went up to walk on the overpass bridge and you get about 30 min to walk up the path and get that perspective of the dam and see the state line if you hurry! We stopped at a restaurant on the way back which was decent and very organized and we were in and out. Overall great experience, would recommend :)

I saw a documentary on the Hoover Dam a few years ago so it was cool to check out the place for real! The tour was fun from the start and filled with random bits of information. I went by myself and enjoyed the tour! :)

Our guide, Jason, was awesome!! /Very informative about the trip on the way and knew a lot about the dam and how and when it came about. Very impressive. I would recommend the trip to residents as well as out of town guests.

Our guide, Jason, was very entertaining and knew all we needed to know about Hoover Dam. Steve, our driver, maneuvered our tour bus with great expertise. Lunch wasn't bad, either. We had plenty of time to take the tour of the dam, then walk on top of the dam, go to gift shop, etc...All in all, a great experience .
