Hoover Dam

Daily 9am - 5pm
Hwy. 93, Boulder City

The Basics

The dam is a popular day-trip destination from Las Vegas and transportation options range from comedy buses, Hummers, and mountain bikes. On-site, tour the power plant, learn how the dam generates and distributes electricity, and see stunning views of the surrounding riverways, canyons, and valleys. Some tours even combine a Hoover Dam visit with shooting range stops, excursions to the Grand Canyon’s West Rim, or a cruise on Lake Mead. Want a bird’s-eye view? Opt for a flightseeing helicopter tour instead.

So much to learn!
With Chris as a guide, you get information pertaining to Boulder City, the Dam, Las Vegas, and everything else in-between. He was a wealth of knowledge that made the trip memorable, so much so that as soon as I returned, I was bursting at the seams with information about the Hoover Dam to share with everyone else!

Excellent Tour!

Small Group 3 Hour Hoover Dam Mini Tour
Our Driver/Tour Guide was fabulous! He was super friendly, knowledgable and safety concious! We enjoyed every minute of our tour! We would never have known about the "painted rocks" and saw the sheep up so close if he hadn't taken us. The variety of views and history he shared about the bridge & Hoover Dam were fabulous! The one thing that bothered me was to see how few people tipped him! So awful! These people provide a service, please remember to tip them!

Grand Canyon West Rim Bus Tour & Hoover Dam Photo Stop with Optional Skywalk
We had a great time! Bus was clean and the tour guide was funny. The Grand Canyon was breath taking especially on the sky walk. Just wish we were able to stop on the Hoover Dam to actually see the dam. I'm glad the weather wasn't too hot to enjoy the views. Would do the tour again!

Hoover Dam Tour from Las Vegas
My husband and I chose the half day tour, and we're extremely pleased with our trip! It ended up being a couple hours longer than we anticipated (I believe it said 4.5 hours, and from the tike we were picked up to drop off was about 5 or 5.5 hours) but we were totally fine with it! We made several stops and had ample opportunities to take pictures and see different views. We loved hearing the history of the Hoover Dam. The bus was clean and heated/cooled. We would definitely recommend!

Hoover Dam/Lake Mead. Our guide was very knowledgeable and explicit. Our driver was a very safe driver and we felt comfortable the whole tour. The Skywalk was an incredible experience. Pity we couldn’t take our own photos. Lunch was disappointing.
