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.

The Hoover dam tour was great. The vehicle we traveled in was very comfortable and the guide was very upbeat and fun with talk to. We had plenty of time to explore on our own at the dam and the tour guide took us around the dam and explanined the history of the dam and it’s features. The 30 minute river tour was cool too. We were able to get below the dam to take pictures and learn more about the history of the construction of the dam while in the Colorado river.
It was GREAT
Everything about the tour was pleasant. From pickup to drop off, we didn't have to worry about anything. Travel, parking, and tickets were all handled so it allowed us to take our time and experience everything there was to see. In addition to the Hoover Dam location, our tour guide was full of knowledge and interesting facts regarding the surrounding areas. She made the whole experience entertaining, including the drive to the location. I would definitely go on another Pink Jeep tour, especially if Debbie was our guide.
Incredibly interesting and would highly recommend it
Lots of fun, great commentary, very informative!
John was amazing! He had a great attitude, great personality and very knowledgeable about the area!
The tour was educational, our tour guide Kegan was very knowledgeable.
I enjoyed the tour with my family. One thing that we did enjoy was that our driver Slash tour guide was prompt, relaxed, and enjoyed what he did. The Hoover Dam speaks for itself, but it's always better when you have a great tour guide as was Gary.
It was exactly what we wanted and asked for.
