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.

Great tour, noisy bus, not an open air Jeep like you showed on line
Awesome tour! The drive from our hotel was nice. Tommy was very knowledgeable, not only about the dam, but of the entire area. The power plant tour was great. All around great experience!
The Hoover Dam tour with Chris was extremely informative, interesting & fun . . . He is a wealth of information about this area . . .
The Hoover Dam tour was great. Debbie G. was an awesome tour guide. She offered lots of facts and we learned a lot about Las Vegas, Boulder City, and the Hoover Dam. We are so glad we did this tour instead of just driving out there "blind".
Other than my seat on the bus (thought it would have been the same vehicle as the red rock canyon tour) it was great
It was great. Chris was terrific.
Well organized and delivered what was promised; driver was informative and entertaining.
I was due to be picked up at 7:45 AM at my hotel. Carol did call me on my cell to say that she was on her way and would be later picking us up. She arrived about 8.
Guide was not intune to the people he had on board.
