Hoover Dam

Daily 9am - 5pm
Hwy. 93, Boulder City

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.

Ultimate Hoover Dam Tour from Las Vegas With Lunch
I had a couple of free days in Vegas. So glad I spent one day visiting Hoover Dam! The tour was well planned. Unfortunately, due to Covid, we couldn’t actually go inside the dam, but we were able walk across it. Dan was hilarious and also managed to deliver lots of information.

VIP Ghost Town Gold Mine Tour, Hoover Dam Small Group Tour from Las Vegas
No ghost on this tour, my fault for reading too quick but we throughly enjoyed the tour. Takes you to hoover dam, ghost town with a mine, and then red rock. It was very customizable. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about everything. She took great photos and made sure we were comfortable at all times. Our tour guide was Lankun. I felt like she went above and beyond.

Grand Canyon and Hoover Dam Small Group Day Tour
We had Tara as our guide. She was very informative, helpful and knowledgeable about the area. Due to a Covid upsurge there was no tour of the Hoover dam and the skywalk visit of Grand Canyon could easily be dropped as it was not very informative. Despite this My wife and I had an enjoyable time and wouldn’t hesitate to use this company again.

This tour was amazing!!! I will cherish for a life time. Our tour guide, Joe, was comically funny, genuine about our safety, and knowledgeable about the dam and surrounding areas. He also worked very well with our driver, Ms Angie, who was very courteous to slow down, when traffic allowed to capture breathtaking pictures. Being able to see the Hoover Dam and Boulder City fornthe 1st time was phenomenal!! Absolutely love it.

VIP Ghost Town Gold Mine Tour, Hoover Dam Small Group Tour from Las Vegas
Overall great tour! Funny tour guide, and full of interesting history. It was neat to see into the old gold mine. I would have liked to go a little further in but not sure if that was possible. Our shuttle driver Reuben was great! Very nice guy and knowledgeable about the Hoover Dam history. He even took us to see the Colorado river!

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.
