The Hoover Dam stands as a tribute to US ingenuity and engineering during a time of adversity and hardship. On the Hoover Dam Classic Guided Tour, you’ll gain an insider's look at this National Civil Engineering Landmark.
Your Certified Interpretive Guide will pick you up at your hotel in a custom Pink Adventure Tour Trekker vehicle, designed to provide comfort and unobstructed views. You’ll see Lake Mead, the country’s largest man-made reservoir, and historic Boulder City, built to house dam workers.
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 tour the Power Plant while exploring passageways within the dam.
Your Tour Trekker will then take you to the Arizona side of the dam, where you’ll see a spillway so large a World War II battleship could float through it; each spillway can handle the flow of Niagara Falls. The Hoover Dam is a National Historic Landmark, and has been a filming location for Hollywood hits like “Superman” (1978, Warner Bros.), “Viva La Vegas” (1964, MGM) and “Transformers” (2007, DreamWorks).
Then, you can even walk along the dam itself.
Whether you enjoy our Hoover Dam Classic Guided Tour in the morning or afternoon, you’ll never forget a visit to this engineering marvel. Our luxurious transportation and knowledgeable guides make this a trip custom-made for photo ops and lasting memories.

Shorter than actually expected but not lacking in information.
It was a great tour! Very informative and fun.
Our tour guide Bob was extremely knowledgeable about Las Vegas and the Hoover Dam. The transportation to Hoover Dam was great! Clean and comfortable. We were also first tour group there so I recommend the morning tour. We had some time, without crowds of people, to walk across the Hoover dam and stop for plenty of picutres. Great excursion!!
Loved all the stops and history to the Hoover Dam
A most excellent tour
It was ok 4 me...
It was a great tour and had really good timing!
Great driver-guide. Super comfortable vehicle. Perfect length of tour. Loved it!
It was great. Lots of time to spend independently at each site. Tour guide was very pleasant, well-informed, remembered everyone’s names and interacted with each throughout the tour. What was VERY nice and MOST appreciated was the fact that at no time was anything political mentioned. No candidate, incumbent, issue, or opinion on anything or anyone. Not even a joking reference to anything! So refreshing these days when everyone has an opinion, they want to make it known, AND they think theirs is right and everyone else is wrong. So glad to be on a tour that is ABOUT THE TOUR! It was very interesting and most enjoyable. Thank you!
