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.

Chris was an excellent guide, well spoken, knowledgeable and polite. He answered all my questions and has a great breadth of knowledge about the entire area, not just Hoover Dam but the Las Vegas area.
It was wonderful but it was our guide, Jennifer Nardinger, that made the experience as perfect as it was.
Great fun. Ken was lots of fun and very knowledgeable. Also, he was flexible and quick to make sure we avoided most of the congestion. Kept the tour moving but still gave us plenty of time to just look around and relax.
The issues we had with pick up location were with the hotel and not Pink Jeep Tours. Everyone in our group enjoyed the tour and tour guide. No complaints!
I loved the tour! I loved what I saw and I would definitely go back!
Would recommend Pink Jeep tours to anyone! We loved the smaller, more personalized tour and booked a second one the same day!
Perfect length of time. The power plant portion was closed for updating. there would not have been sufficient time for this
Bridge and power rom clsed. Like I said, not your fault but I might have done things differently
Amazing...views were incredible, and our Guide, Glen, was very engaging!!
