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 remarkable views on, around and above 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. A visit to the Boulder Dam Museum inside the Boulder Dam Hotel gives the first look at the Hoover Dam story.
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.
A 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.
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.

I thought I already did. I had seen the dam before on my own. Everything great about this visit was due to Don.
Terrific. Well-paced. On time departure and return. Memorable.
Great tour and that's why we decided to go to The Valley of Fire two days later. Only three people were on this tour and it's commendable that you don't cancel or reschedule tours when few people are there. Thank you very much for that.
It was fun and educational
Debbie was great and very informative of the construction process of both the Hoover dam and bridge
We enjoyed ourselves
It was so interesting and informative. Carol was a great guide and we all got an excellent history lesson.
The pink Dodge Ram truck was very comfortable. The Hoover dam was something I,m glad we didn’t miss! Made much more exciting and informative by Chris Meyer. Here is a guide who obviously loves water he lives and knows much about the history of the region, not just the Hoover dam. If we could give him a 10, we would have!
Very nice tour. I was impressed that it wasn’t cancelled or rescheduled because only 3 tourists signed up. That’s very nice.
