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.

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 for 45 minutes. This excursion is one of the only from Las Vegas to offer this option. Pause for photographs of Lake Mead before hopping back into your minivan to head back to Las Vegas.
During the trip home, stop for lunch to fuel up after your day of learning, seeing and doing.

Our guide was very knowledgeable and the bus driver did a great job navigating the bus through some tight spots and heavy traffic. Hoover Dam was amazing. Wish the weather was better and we had a little more time to explore and enjoy the Dam. All in all it was a great tour!

We really enjoyed this tour and learnt a lot! We had an excellent tour guide. It was a hot sunny day so pleasant to go inside and down into the workings of the dam. I would definitely recommend it.

Booked this tour for me and my boyfriend which we did last week, would definitely recommend it, well worth the money! Got picked up from the nearest hotel to us which was Bally's and were not waiting long at all. Our guide Trevor saw us onto the coach and was very friendly and welcoming. Our driver Donald was hilarious, really got the energy up on the coach and was a really positive person. There was about 12 of us in total on the trip so a nice sort of number. The drive over to the Dam wasn't boring at all, Trevor was very informative and very funny too.

We stopped off at the memorial bridge first to see the view of the Dam from that point and to walk out onto the bridge itself. Beware if you are wearing a hat though as the winds do get pretty strong up on the bridge and there is a lot of lost hats floating about! After seeing the view we got back onto the coach and went on our way to the Dam. If you're going to Vegas or around that area, you need to visit Hoover Dam. It's just so incredible and a picture can't really describe it. The history behind it is phenomenal too. Trevor had so much information about it and made it very interesting. As part of our tour we got to go down to the power plant in the Dam which was very cool. We had about 2 hours total at the Dam itself, which was just the right sort of time you needed to do everything. After visiting the Dam we then made our way over to Boulder City to look at the museum there which again was interesting. Whilst we were at the museum in Boulder City, Trevor rang our food orders through to the restaurant that we would be eating at, so our food would be ready upon arrival. The whole process was really smooth and everyone got what they had ordered. The food at the restaurant was delicious and you even got free refills on your drinks! Definitely got more than what we paid for!

After eating, the journey back to Vegas was just as good as the journey over, going with Comedy Tours made the tour funny and more enjoyable, definitely! Trevor offered lots of little tips to use in Vegas which came in useful too!

The only downside was that we didn't get to visit a chocolate factory as stated in the itinerary, no mention of it at all on the tour either which was strange. And the 'free' comedy tickets aren't really free, you have to buy a drink of 10 per ticket to get in for free.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2016

Just to see the Hoover Dam was amazing but Jason and Donald made the trip great. They feed off each other and made the ride enjoyable. Jason was very informative about sites and the area. He told us about things you wouldn't know or see otherwise. The lunch was very good too. I would highly recommend the tour and if you happen to get Jason and Donald, you will be very pleased!
