Departure Point

Traveler pickup is offered
We limit the amount of hotels we visit for pickups, so that we can spend more time at the Dam, and less time on the bus doing pickups. Our hotels for pickup are strategically placed up and down the strip including downtown, so your own hotel should be either right next door or a very short walk away from where you will meet the bus.

Departure Time

8:00 AM
Following pickup at select Las Vegas hotels, climb in to the climate-controlled vehicle for the drive to the Hoover Dam. Get to know your guide and small group along the way, learning about Hoover Dam history through your guide's commentary.

Upon arrival, start your visit with the Powerplant Tour. Descend 524 feet (160 meters) into the walls of the Black Canyon to see the Nevada Powerwing. Stroll through the generators and see the enormous pipe inside one of the diversion tunnels. After poking around in the depths of the earth, take the elevator back up to the Visitor Center. Get a full picture of the Hoover Damn's history through the exhibits and displays that show the building of the dam and its daily operations.

The highlight of this tour is the Walk on the Top portion: trek over the top of the dam itself. This excursion is one of the only from Las Vegas to offer this option. Stop by the bypass bridge to see the dam from above, before hopping back into your bus to head back to Las Vegas.

During the trip home, stop for lunch to fuel up after your day of learning, seeing and doing. 

Your tour concludes with drop-off back at your select hotel in Las Vegas.

** Please Note: Currently, the interior of the dam is closed, so the Powerplant tour is inaccessible. A stop will be made at the Hoover Dam Museum in Boulder City instead **
Itinerary
Pass By:  
Las Vegas
We proudly offer a designated bus driver (for safety) and step-on tour guide (for entertainment and information). Our drivers do not double as tour guides. Start your tour with pickup from select Las Vegas hotels and we don't take you to a central location to reload onto a different bus. You will go out on the bus you were picked up in. Limiting pick-ups and traveling on one bus allows us to save time and get back early. It can take hours to pull in and out of every hotel. By limiting pick-ups to 7 we are usually the first bus company to Hoover Dam. En route, your guide entertains and answers questions Hoover Dam, its history and/or the Las Vegas area.

Excellent time on the Dam tour!

We enjoyed our tour of the Hoover Dam. Trevor was an excellent guide. Very knowledgeable and funny. Due to Covid you couldn't get into the visitors center or see the power generation equipment, which I have seen before and is very interesting, but that is really not what you are going to see. We were able to walk onto the Mike O'Callaghan–Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge and then walk across the Dam for incredible views. The stop in the town of Boulder City was nice was nice and the stop for lunch after the tour was very good as well. This tour is highly recommended.

Group Hoover Dam tour from Las Vegas

We booked our tour through Viator, which was a simple process. A few days before our tour operator (Comedy on Deck) contacted us to ask to reschedule. Due to Covid bookings were down. Luckily our schedule was flexible and we were able to accommodate the date change. The pickup was prompt. we met our tour guide Jason and bus driver Fil. Our first stop was at the famous "Welcome to Las Vegas" sign. A few quick pics and we were on our way to the Dam. Prior to arriving at the Dam we stopped in the town of Boulder, NV. This is where those who built the dam lived. We were able to tour the dam museum in Boulder. Then it was back on the Dam Bus. First stop was the Memorial Bridge where we were able to get some spectacular views of the dam from high above and at a distance. Next we made our way over to the top of the dam, where we explored the visitors center, and visited the NV/AZ border from the top of the dam. The gov't tour which takes you inside the dam was not operating due to Covid. Finally, we got back on the bus and stopped for lunch. All in all, Jason was a great tour guide. We really enjoyed the tour and recommend booking with Comedy on Deck.

Awesome tour of the Hoover Dam. Trevor was a fantastic guide. Very knowledgeable and very funny. Having a comedian do the tour was a bonus. The Hoover Dam was incredible and the town of Boulder City was very cool and quaint. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to anyone. Was really cool to get out and see the desert. Very beautiful. A highlight of my trip to Las Vegas.

It was my bday weekend while in Vegas. My husband and I wanted to explore more so this tour was everything. Our tour guide Trez was very knowledgeable in the history of Hoover Dam. He made us laugh and gave us a history lesson to remember. My favorite was to be able to walk the bridge over the dam. I will never forget this birthday experience...

Jason was the best! He gave us the best way to take a picture of the Las Vegas sign and was very entertaining and knowledgeable throughout the day. Pick up was very easy at Bally's and the bus was in good condition. Loved the O' Callahan/Tillman Bridge/Hoover Dam. Unfortunately we didn't get to go down into the innards of the dam, but a good trip overall! Lunch was great.

Trez was and amazing tour guide and gave us a lot of information on the whole tour and not to mention he is a pretty decent comedian. The most disappointing part of the trip was we went to see the the complete tour of the Dam that as advertised was something you can only get with this tour, unfortunately that part of the tour has been shut down since the Covid lock down in March and there are no signs of it opening anytime soon should be a little better advertised on the web site
