What You Can Expect

Ultimate Hoover Dam Tour

Guided walk over Hoover Dam

Following pickup at select Las Vegas hotels, climb in to the climate-controlled van 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. 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 and a chocolate factory to fuel up after your day of learning, seeing and doing. 

Your 6.5-hour tour concludes with drop-off back at your hotel in Las Vegas.

Enjoyed the tour, especially being able to go down into the inner workings to view the actual generators. My husband enjoyed the amazing view from the bypass bridge, while I waited on the side to see his photos later. Tour was very informative and well organized. Well worth the experience!

Superb - as usual - been on this tour several times over the past few years. Good day out. Good and entertaining guide. Preferred lunch at the Bolder Dam Hotel but now we had lunch at Omelette Bar.
