Overview

Once the world’s tallest dam, the Hoover Dam towers over the Mojave Desert with spectacular views across Nevada. This guided tour from Las Vegas takes you deep inside the dam, descending to the observation room to see its massive generators at work. Since morning and afternoon departures are available, this Hoover Dam tour is a convenient excursion that can be added to a day of sightseeing in Las Vegas.

What to Expect

Meet your driver at select Las Vegas hotels and take in views of the Mojave Desert on the drive to the Hoover Dam.

When you get to the Hoover Dam, get perspectives on the dam from both the Arizona and Nevada sides of the Colorado River, and have your camera ready as you cross the Mike O’Callaghan-Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge.

Start with a guided tour of the dam interior, with live presentations and a film about the history and construction of the Hoover Dam. See the exhibit gallery and the observation deck, and then drop down into the observation room to watch the dam’s powerful generators in action.

Finally, begin the scenic trip back to Las Vegas, where this tour concludes with drop-off at your original departure point.

Wow

This was breathtaking! I don’t think you quite realise just how large this thing is! Def worth a look but don’t pay for parking... drive over the bridge to view points 11/12 and park then walk down!
