Overview

Experience the Hoover Dam, one of the man-made wonders of the world!

With daily departures, our Hoover Dam Deluxe tour from Las Vegas will be an adventure you will never forget.

We pick up at most Las Vegas hotels before departing on this daily Hoover Dam City Deluxe tour of the Hoover Dam. Experience this engineering man-made wonder of the world. One of the biggest and most successful government projects of its time, the Hoover Dam actually was completed on time and under budget.

Your professional driver/guide will provide expert narration on this roundtrip tour from Las Vegas while you enjoy a ride onboard a luxury motorcoach with airline-style reclining seats, footrests, onboard restroom, air conditioning, and large vista view windows so you won't miss a thing.

The Hoover Dam is often called one of the 7 Man-Made Wonders of the World. Don’t miss your chance to stand on top of this amazing piece of American History!

Enjoy a wonderful and informative journey down through the Hoover Dam with reclamation guides, where you can enjoy a movie on the making of the Hoover Dam, and so much After exiting the Theater, join the queue on this same level to enter the Hoover Dam Powerplant.

From here, a 70-second elevator ride takes you 530 feet down through the rock wall of Black Canyon to begin a 30-minute guided tour. You'll exit the elevator into a tunnel drilled in the 1930s for construction, and take a short walk to the Penstock Viewing Platform.

Penstock Viewing: This location is atop one (of four) of the huge 30-foot-diameter pipes that can transport nearly 90,000 gallons of water each second from Lake Mead to the dam's hydroelectric generators. An animated display helps describe the complexities of the construction of the dam, and how it presently operates.

Powerplant Generators: A quick elevator ride up to the Nevada powerplant balcony takes you to a panoramic view of the 650-foot-long Nevada wing of the power plant and eight of the dam's 17 huge generators. Also, don't miss the beautiful and intricate terrazzo floor designs under your feet. A great spot for pictures!

Upon exiting the interior portion of the tour, you will have some time to explore on your own to see the Hoover Dam and all of its majesty.

This tour includes a stop at the newly redesigned Hoover Dam Lodge, for a delicious meal and some time to explore the surrounding area.

After lunch, we will make a stop at the Ethel M's Chocolate Factory for a self-guided tour and a free sample of chocolate made right here in Las Vegas!

Poor communication loses one star in this review and the excessive wait time to start. If you do this tour, make sure you plan well ahead for time! Otherwise, our guide was knowledgeable and wonderful to work with! Adequate time at the dam to see everything! They do pick you up at the hotel.

The access to the dam in very easy, when we visited there were no big crowds, parking in the parking garage on the east side very convenient ($10), Short walk to the top of the dam or access to all tours and exhibits. Well worth the trip.

Having just flown over the Dam we decided we wanted to visit the actual site so on the spur of the moment we booked the express tour through a One Stop Shop booth on the Strip. Told it was 8.30 to 1.00. In reality it was 9.00 to 2.30 having been picked up we were taken to the GrayLine terminal where we paid the balance and were allocated our coach with driver Krocklin? . Started with a visit to the iconic Las Vegas sign. Then to the Dam which is very impressive. Unfortunately we were not able to do the one hour Power Plant tour as the lifts were out of action but we were only given a very nominal refund by GrayLine. However we did enjoy the introductory film plus additional lecture and slide show. This left plenty of time to enjoy the Exhibit and a walk across the Dam to the overspill weir and tunnel and finally lunch at the Café. On return we still had time to stop at the recently constructed Bypass Bridge which gave fabulous views back to the Dam. All in all a good tour but if you pre book you can get better deals online. Also we were the first drop off but you could be on the coach a lot longer if you are the last.

We thoroughly enjoyed the Hoover Dam Tour. The Gray Line Bus was comfortable and clean for the hour trip. Tony our driver was energetic and informative during our drive. The dam tour unfortunately didn’t happen due to the elevator down into the dam being broken when we arrived. All we did was walk around the top of the Dam and Visitor center for an hour. Only complaint would be that Tony talked over the informative narration that played on the bus as we drove there. He was difficult to understand and also hear due to the narration playing at the same time. Think the provided narration would have been better to hear. Over all was a fun tour.

The bus ride and tour was great. We took the short tour 41/2 hours. Our guide was tony. Great guide, went out of his way to accommodate us. Check the coupons and shop around we paid 70 dollars for two people. I understand some people have paid less. Shop around. The dam is great, get lots of pictures. I found it neat one size of the dam is in nevada and the other is in Arizona.

We booked the deluxe Hoover dam tour with Grayline tours. Our driver for the day was Spencer. It was a nice relaxing trip, we were able to see the interior of the dam structure and hear a lot of the history. Spencer did a nice job as our driver/guide for the day. He shared a lot of history and facts about Las Vegas, the Hoover dam, and the desert. I would recommend the trip!

Adrian the driver was friendly and informative on the way to and from the dam. The tour itself was not so long, maybe a half hour, but interesting. After that there is time to wander around, walk across the top of the dam, take pictures, etc. I was staying downtown rather than the strip, so I was the first picked and last dropped off, which added perhaps an hour to the total time, compared with people staying on the strip, so potential customers should be aware of that and plan accordingly

I enjoyed the Tour. The staff at the Dam were great and again had us laughing. The short film and Guides had more information about the building of the Dam than you usually hear. It was very interesting. Our driver Thomas added insights before and after the tour.

The tour of Hoover Dam was great! Elevators not operating the day we were there so we missed part of the tour. The driver was exceptional on getting us there on a very windy day.
