A Destination of History, Science and Technology
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. Head to the observation deck for breathtaking views of the Colorado River and Lake Mead. You can even walk along the dam itself.
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. 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).
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.

If I had time , I would have chosen a longer tour (with the boat on Lake mead) but the one we chose was great for the time we had. Our tour guide (Chris) was great, friendly and informative, Pink Jeep was great. This was our second tour with them in the same week and I would choose the again in a minute.
The tour was great at Hoover Dam. But Jesse's commentary to and from made the day! He is so intelligent, funny and engaging.

Chris was as awesome guide. I got to sit in front with him and we talked a lot about Vegas and the dam. An EXCELLENT tour guide.
The tour was great, the guide was exceptional, and I would recommend this to anyone.
Great. Ken was really good
Overall, I was very pleased with the tour beginning to end. I especially liked that Ken was engaging and made the atmosphere in and out of the Jeep very friendly. He even gave us suggestions on the way back to our hotels for restaurants based on our preferred cuisine.
Very well put together. Required no effort on my part to get passes or parking, just a relaxed worry free experience.

Ken did an amazing job from the moment he picked us up until he dropped us off. Lots of local info, history of the area and places to visit while in Las Vegas.
Good tour with lots of information. Duration was about right as well
Our first time to get outside of the strip and it turns out to be a surprising nice tour. Chris was more than a tour guide, he was an educator for the nature and environment as well. His local knowledge and passion of the nature definitely made the trip fun and educating. Highly recommended!
