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 Tour Trekker's. 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 drive by historic Boulder City and learn about its important role in the dam’s construction. 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, can be seen as you arrive at the historic structure.
Then it’s on to the most unique element of the tour—a 90-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.
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 Hoover Dam is the shining gem of our tour; standing over 700 feet tall, it has the capacity to irrigate two million acres and provides power to southern California, Nevada and Arizona. Built over 4 years during the Great Depression, its creation provided thousands of jobs.
Your first stop features exhibits and presentations at the Hoover Dam Visitor Center. You’ll also take a 30 minute tour of the Power Plant while exploring passageways within the dam.
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 lunch, a snack, parking, admission fees and complimentary bottled water.

Amazing but hottttt.....
Excellent. Really enjoyed river tour. Great job Don & Jeff
From the previous comments, you can see that we thought your tour "Hoover Tour - Top to Bottom " was excellent
This was a great informative and fun tour of the Hoover Dam. Alex was fantastic and extremely knowledgeable. Will highly recommend.
According to our teenagers, it was even cooler than they expected! We liked having special access to the winding road done to the Colorado River. Katheryn was great at allowing some guests to skip the more rigorous portions while not making the rest of us feel as if we were missing anything. We enjoyed learning about the history of the Dam. The stories were great and it was easy to feel proud of such a spectacular accomplishment by that generation of Americans.
Great, I had looked at a tour on lake Mead. much happier with the raft on the Colorado River
Excellent tour!!! I love the river tour combined with the top tour. Gives a whole new perspective on the Dam
The river + dam combo was amazing, and all the guides were fantastic. Truly enjoyed the entire day.
Thought it was great! John G was awesome!
