Pickup details

We limit the amount of hotels we visit for pickups, so that we can spend more time at the Dam, and less time on the bus doing pickups. Our hotels for pickup are strategically placed up and down the strip including downtown, so your own hotel should be either right next door or a very short walk away from where you will meet the bus.

What To Expect

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

Your tour concludes with drop-off back at your select hotel in Las Vegas.

Las Vegas

We proudly offer a designated bus driver (for safety) and step-on tour guide (for entertainment and information). Our drivers do not double as tour guides. Start your tour with pickup from select Las Vegas hotels and we don't take you to a central location to reload onto a different bus. You will go out on the bus you were picked up in. Limiting pick-ups and traveling on one bus allows us to save time and get back early. It can take hours to pull in and out of every hotel. By limiting pick-ups to 7 we are usually the first bus company to Hoover Dam. En route, your guide entertains and answers questions Hoover Dam, its history and/or the Las Vegas area.

10 minutesAdmission Ticket Free

Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas Sign

We include a photo stop at the famous Welcome to Las Vegas Sign - Our guides will show you the best place to stand to get your photos to create a happy memory of your time in Vegas.

Traveler Tips

One thing to keep in mind - this is a government facility and being able to go inside the dam is sometimes difficult or the lines are long.
Keeping in mind, you may have a long wait in line to do this but you can.
Be sure to allow until 4pm before you are back at the hotel.

My wife and I really enjoyed the Hoover Dam tour. Our tour guide, Dan, is an actual comedian, and we enjoyed his serious commentary on the dam along with the jokes. It was very nice to just sit back and let Dan and Ken, the driver, handle all of the details. We highly recommend this company.
Best dam tour around!!

Trez is the best......
Michael_D, Sep 2022
Trez was our guide on this Dam tour. All I can say is thanks for the dam experience Trez. Seriously this was one of the best things we did in Vegas and if you read this go. Won't regret it. And hope you get this guy as your guide. Very hilarious.
Entertaining and informative
Benjamin_S, Sep 2022
We were looking for something to do off the strip during our stay in Vegas and decided to book this tour. Our tour guide "Trez" called it the "best dam tour" and he was right! The tour first stopped at the original Las Vegas sign, giving us a chance to take pictures. We then continued on to a stop that allowed us to walk up on the recently built bypass bridge, offering spectacular views of the Hoover Dam from above. We then continued on to the dam itself where we were given a tour of the power plant and plenty of time to walk on top of the dam and take pictures. Our last stop was lunch at the Omelette House. We were given 6 entree options on the bus, which were called in ahead of time so lunch was ready right when we got there (which was a good thing because we were super hungry by then - might want to bring a snack with you). Throughout it all Trez provided entertaining and informative commentary and made sure everything went smoothly and our driver, Angela, was an expert behind the wheel. If you're looking for a fun, informative, half day excursion off the strip, give this one a try. You won't regret it.
Best Dam tour in Vegas!

Good tour
rebecca_p, Sep 2022
Harrison was our tour guide and he was great and bus driver were great. The tour needed to allow you another half hour at Hoover dam. We didn’t dilly dally and we had no time to go to the gift shop or get a snack. They didn’t stop at the Hoover dam museum in Boulder City either. We drove through Boulder City but no stops
Great excursion
