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.

Nice clean vehicle, safe driver. Gave some info about the Las Vegas area. The ride was comfortable about 2 1/2 hours with a pit stop. Not thrilled with Hoover Dam, thats not the tour operators fault i expected something else i suppose. Overall definitely recommend.

Grand Canyon West Rim Bus Tour with Hoover Dam Stop, Meals and Optional Upgrades
My trip started at the hotel pick up. We proceeded to Hoover Dam and Lake Mead, followed by a stop over at a gas station for "Sub-way" breakfast! Upon arriving at Grand Canyon West, we took the shuttle to Eagle Point and did the Skywalk. Had a quick lunch in the restaurant and moved on to Guano Point. The view at Guano Point was spectacular! My family enjoyed this trip very much! Kudos to our driver/tour guide, ensuring our safety throughout the whole trip!

Matt was really lovely! I really felt like we had access to something special and private since we were the only people on the river. This was the perfect way to see Hoover Dam and be a part of nature.
