8:00 AM
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.
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.
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.

The tour itself was great, but the ride there with Harrison and Angela really made it special. Of course Harrison was so funny but he really gave us all an education about the area and the Dam. Angela was literally a "smooth operator", driving the bus like the professional she is. Never felt rushed or herded around and had time to see everything we wanted! 5 stars.

Harrison and Angie were great 👍. Funny, knowledgeable and time was flying. Hoover dam was amazing and was just built in 5 years with very simple equipment, now any government construction just repair takes 5 years

Could not get into lower level due to an elevator issue. But we paid for full experience. Too long for stops, and an unnecessary stop at a park on way back. Lunch at Omlet house was horrible. Girlfriend could not eat her food

This was a great tour! Our guide was very knowledgeable and also quite funny. It was well organized, on time, and full of good information. The inside tour of the dam was a little disappointing as it was pretty brief, but the overall tour was a very good experience. Harrison was our tour guide and Laura was the driver.
