Highlights

  • Informative, friendly and professional guide
  • All entrance fees included
  • Lunch included

Start your 6.5-hour Hoover Dam tour with hotel pickup from selected Las Vegas hotels. Hop aboard the air-conditioned minivan for transport to Hoover Dam, an approximate 45-minute drive away. En route, your guide enlightens your small group with encyclopedic knowledge on all aspects of Hoover Dam and its history.

On arrival, you’ll begin with a Powerplant tour. Travel 524 feet (160 meters) into the walls of Black Canyon to view the Nevada Powerwing, generators and a 30-foot-diameter (9-meter) pipe inside one of the four diversion tunnels.

Next, head into the Hoover Dam Visitor Center where you can see the history of Hoover Dam and view numerous exhibits that explain how the dam was built, how it operates and who benefits from the water and electricity.

Then take a fully guided Walk on the Top tour — a comprehensive 45-minute walking tour over the top of the dam. Snap photographs of Lake Mead at the scenic Lake Mead Overlook before enjoying an early afternoon lunch at a restaurant on the way back to Las Vegas (see menu options below).

You’ll make a short but sweet stop at Ethel M's Chocolate Factory and hear Vegas trivia about Howard Hughes, the mafia and more before drop-off at selected hotels.

This tour was great. Our guide Trevor and driver Jason were very informative and funny. Had a great lunch and even stopped at chocolate factory.

This excursion was absolutely amazing! Jason, our guide, and Alan, our driver were wonderful. Jason had a personality that didn't quit. He was funny, serious when necessary, creative, respectful, and so knowledgable about not only Hoover Dam, but other tours and great things to do and places to eat, while we were in Las Vegas. Alan was a fabulous driver, and maneuvered the curves and tight roads with great safety and expertise. We had our 16 and 17 year old sons, Hunter and Noah with us. This was indeed, a highlight of our vacation, for all four of us. What a wonderful day! I strongtly recommend it to anyone cosidering a Hoover Dam excursion from Las Vegas.
