Gratuities
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
Stop At:  
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.

He had a great experience going to the Hoover dam. The bus was comfortable and the tour guide was knowledgeable and entertaining. I only wish We could have toured inside the dam, but it was not open due to covid. However, I did hear that it was going to open up for tours July 2021.

Harrison was our guide and Mel was our driver. We really enjoyed our experience and Harrison was informative, friendly and entertaining. The stops along the way were good and helped make up for not getting to go inside at the dam. Lunch was really good and done very efficiently.
