Explore a marvel of engineering from above and below with this unique tour. Travel to the Hoover Dam in ease and comfort inside our custom-designed Pink Adventure Tour Trekker vehicle. After picking you up from your hotel, our guides will share fun tidbits and stories on the way to the dam. As Certified Interpretive Guides, they’re always ready to share myths, legends and fun trivia about the area.
As you near the dam, you’ll pass Boulder City. This town was created solely to house workers during the dam’s construction and retains its vintage charm. Lake Mead, the country’s largest reservoir, glints on the horizon as you arrive at the historic structure.
Hop out and begin your experience at the Hoover Dam Auditorium. Here, you’ll see a film that features an overview of the dam’s legacy and engineering. Next, gain fascinating insights into the physics and geology that make the dam work while browsing the visitor’s center at your own pace.
Then it’s on to the most unique element of the tour—a 30-minute float on the Colorado River for an up-close look at the dam. Take a short walk to the raft launch while your guide points out relics of the dam’s past. Old-time water level gauging stations and dynamite storage bunkers act as reminders of the dam’s longstanding presence in the American landscape.
From the dam’s basin, you’ll get an amazing vantage point of the Mike O’Callaghan-Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge, which links Arizona and Nevada. Be sure to capture some photos of the world’s highest concrete arch bridge.
Next, explore the Hoover Dam Power Plant. Reclamation guides present information in an interactive way and explain the history, construction, operations and maintenance involved in keeping the dam running. The plant produces enough power to serve nearly eight million people across the Southwest, and you’ll be amazed at the enormity of the machines and technology.
Trade the tunnels and inner-workings of the dam for the daylight and breezes of the Observation Deck. Gaze down at the powerful Colorado River and take plenty of pictures. Marvel at the vastness of the reservoir and height of the towering dam wall before your relaxing return trip to Las Vegas.
This tour includes parking, admission fees and complimentary bottled water.

I was super impressed! The whole time I was relaxed because it was so easy to "go with the flow". Jerry did a great job with logistics and driving and touring. He was amazing! Great ride. Great activities for the price too. I loved it. Such a great time. Thanks Pink Jeep - I hope to do more with you again in the future.
The tour was fantastic and interesting. James Troutman was amazing with all the fun facts and information he provided on the way to Hoover Dam. My daughter, her friend and I had a blast. I would easily take this tour again. When I return to Las Vegas next year, I'm going to take another Pink Jeep Tour! Good times people, good times!
Jerry, our tour guide, was extremely friendly and made everyone feel comfortable right from the start by introducing us, asking us questions, and making us laugh. His constant narration as we drove was interesting and made the trip go quickly with no awkward silence. Everything ran smoothly, the pink jeep SUV was comfortable, and Jerry made sure to give us lots of bottled water. His details about the dam made it so much more interesting than it would have been if we hadn't done a tour. The raft ride was also fun and seeing the dam and the bridge from the water view below was beautiful. It was a week of excessive heat warning around 112 degrees that day, but Jerry kept reminding us to drink lots and he gave us frozen towels as we were learning about the dam while in the sun. The inside tour was cool to see as well and we learned a lot about the history and structure of the dam with those guides, but it was much more fun to listen to Jerry! On the way back we stopped at a small park with a great view of Lake Mead and a whole bunch of mountain sheep relaxing in the shade. It was only a few minutes, but it really made the trip special.

Cannot shout enough good things! From plentiful ice cold water to cool lemongrass- scented wash clothes once we were finished with the boating part of the tour and entering the dam - all a luxurious adventure. Top it off with a FUN, knowledgeable and accommodating tour guide - well, you’ve made my list for future vacations! Thank you!
Great tour - not too long or too short. Very interesting part of history.
Excellent tour!! Very interesting!!
Disappointed the elevators at the dam were inoperable thereby cutting out important part of the tour. That was not Pink Jeep's fault and out of your control, but price should have been discounted more to reflect this. Otherwise tour was very nice.
Greatly enjoyed it. Nothing else to say. Was my 2nd PinkJeep tour
Don had a wealth of knowledge which he was eager to share. He always had the group's safety as his 1st thought & always ensured we stayed well hydrated throughout the day.
It was a really great tour, we saw the dam, took a boat ride under the dam, toured the power plant, saw some big horned sheep, our guide was friendly and informative
