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.

Breathtaking Tour
Bob was friendly, funny, accommodating, and full of great information. The view of the damn from the bridge was absolutely breathtaking and Bob was able to point out points of interest along the way, how the damn was built, and how it works. I’d absolutely go again!

Grand Canyon West Rim Bus Tour & Hoover Dam Photo Stop with Optional Skywalk
Clean and modern bus. Friendly staff. Andrew and Lala were great hosts. Nice meals provided. It was very foggy so Grand Canyon was a disappointment; not their fault! Hoover Dam was impressive.

Hoover Dam Tour from Las Vegas
Going inside the Dam was very interesting. Learning about it and the Las Vegas area. Been to Vegas a few times and had not ventured off the strip. This was great to go to the Welcome sign and Hoover Dam on a tour. Our guide was wonderful and high energy. I would recommend for anyone wanting to see.

Jim was a fantastic tour guide. His knowledge was amazing. I had no idea Hoover dam was as exciting as Jim made it to be. I knew I wanted to see it, and I am glad Jim was our guide. I have told everyone how great he was and that they should take his tour.

Small Group Grand Canyon West Rim and Hoover Dam Mini Tour with Lunch
Our tour group driver Gary was great! He took us to see Joshua trees, Grand Canyon, Hoover Dam, and Wild Big Horn White Sheep. Our driver/ guide was personable and knowledgeable with some corny jokes thrown in along the way! He made the excursion more interesting. I will recommend this small group tour!
