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.

our tour guide was informative and funny but some of the jokes weren't family friendly. Although we couldn't go down in Hoover Dam due to Covid restrictions they took us through Boulder City museum which was nice

Ultimate Hoover Dam Tour from Las Vegas With Lunch
Trever is an excellent host! He had us laughing all the time during the tour by his very creative way of mixing facts with comedy. The Hoover Dam inside tour was closed because of current covid restrictions but the tour made up for it giving more time for the other sites and that was excellent. We loved the experience and had a great time!

3 Hour Hoover Dam Mini Tour and Seven Magic Mountains Small Group Combo Tour
Pam whisked us away for adventure off the beaten Vegas path - in just 4 hours we saw the Seven Magic Mountains, Lake Mead and the Hoover Dam...and learned enough about these places to beat Ken Jennings on Jeopardy! Pam made the history come alive with her stories and humor! We did this tour on New Years Day - a great start to 2022! Thanks Pam and Mr. Las Vegas for an interesting, well organized and comfortable tour!

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.
