The Basics

The dam is a popular day-trip destination from Las Vegas and transportation options range from comedy buses, Hummers, and mountain bikes. On-site, tour the power plant, learn how the dam generates and distributes electricity, and see stunning views of the surrounding riverways, canyons, and valleys. Some tours even combine a Hoover Dam visit with shooting range stops, excursions to the Grand Canyon’s West Rim, or a cruise on Lake Mead. Want a bird’s-eye view? Opt for a flightseeing helicopter tour instead.

Great Value!
I can highly recommend this tour. Tour operator updated & communicated daily. We selected morning due to heat & wanted afternoon free. Tour guide friendly, well informed & organized. Multiple stops with amble photo opportunities. I would book other tours with this group in the future.

Grand Canyon West Rim Bus Tour & Hoover Dam Photo Stop with optional Skywalk
The bus was clean and comfortable. Tour Guide Diaz Mackie was excellent our driver Robert was excellent also. The Grand Canyon was breath taking as well as the Hoover Dam. I did not do the Skywalk. But the people who did said it was awesome and recommended it. The natural beautify of the Grand Canyon I will never forget. Breakfast was delicious and so was our lunch. Our adventure was beautiful and well worth it. Customer Service was great too.

Small-Group 3 Hour Hoover Dam Mini Tour With Strip Pickup
We booked a last minute tour the same day to go see the Hoover Dam. It was a great tour considering the dam was still closed due to COVID. Our driver and tour guide Bob was fantastic! Very informative, courteous and just an all-around good guy. Even my teenagers were impressed!

Grand Canyon West Rim Bus Tour & Hoover Dam Photo Stop with optional Skywalk
The Hoover Dam was awesome! Wish we could have gotten a bit closer. The Grand Canyon is just an awesome wonder and you can get all the photos your heart desires. In the age of Covid-19 the advertised BBQ lunch was non-existent so be looking for your choice of a wrap or salad with some chips and a drink. Tour guide Ralph and driver Leon were awesome and got us there and back safely.

Small-Group 3 Hour Hoover Dam Mini Tour With Strip Pickup
Our Tour was very perfect for our group and very nice outing. It included several stops at places along the way to the dam which made the tour interesting . Our tour guide and driver was very knowledgeable on the landmarks visited which were meaningful to the story on the building of the Hoover dam. Overall it was a great tour without taking a full day. Many thanks to the owner for setting up our tour to accommodate my group’s safety concerns during the pandemic.

Grand Canyon West plus Hoover Dam VIP Day Tour from Las Vegas
Konoa was a GREAT tour guide. Our only disappointing factor was the tour into the generator of the Hoover Dam was closed. This was included in the price of the tour. We would have also liked more “free” time to roam around the points of the west Canyon. It seemed that we “had” to follow a certain path and location.

When to Get There

Because of the stifling desert heat in summer, spring and fall are the best times to visit the Hoover Dam. Expect long lines and heavy traffic on summer weekends; opt for an early morning visit to avoid crowds.

Inside Hoover Dam

A Hoover Dam tour features much more than just a 726-foot (221-meter) wall. Explore tunnels that were bored directly into the mountainside, hear the harrowing tales of workers who carved them out by hand, and tour the power plant. The Hoover Dam Visitor Center offers even more info about America’s most famous dam.
