Tour Details

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 stop in Boulder City and visit the Boulder Dam Museum inside the historic Boulder Dam Hotel. 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. 

Next, enjoy gain fascinating insights into the physics and geology that make the dam work while browsing the Visitor’s Center and see the views from the Observation Deck.

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, and take a good look: because soon you’ll be up there and looking down.

 

The short walk on the 900-feet-tall Michael O’Callaghan—Pat Tillman Bridge provides a bird’s-eye view of the Dam; this is a view of the mighty dam as it holds back Lake Mead.


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.
