The Hoover Dam is a short drive from the fast-paced Vegas Strip, and this tour allows you to venture into the beautiful Mojave Desert and uncover the rich history and planning behind the Hoover Dam. Built in 1935, the massive concrete dam was once the world's largest power-producing facility and now remains a world-renowned feat of engineering.

Hop on board a comfortable air-conditioned bus for a scenic drive through the cactus-lined desert, checking out the flora and fauna of this arid landscape as you make your way towards Hoover Dam. Towering 725 feet (220 m) above the Colorado River, the dam is one of the largest concrete structures on the planet.

Head inside the Hoover Dam and take the Power Plant Tour to marvel at the 17 turbine generators at work and learn how they transform flowing water into enough electricity to power a major portion of the American Southwest. Walk through the facility and listen to your guide describe historic details of the structure's controversies, tragedies and first-of-its-kind technology.

Next, step out for a view of the Arizona Spillway, which funnels water from Lake Mead deep into the canyon walls, through a chute wide enough to fit a WWII battleship. From atop a lookout that also happens to be the perfect viewpoint, enjoy panoramic vistas of Lake Mead and its vivid desert backdrop.

Was an excellent experience. Picked up at hotel, stopped at Boulder City for a bit, stopped to see big horn sheep, Hoover dam Plant tour, walked the bridge over looking Hoover Dam, and viewing site of Lake Mead. Angela was an excellent tour guide.

Sweet tour is picked us up at our hotel. Transferred us to a big bus. The lady that drove the bus ( sorry but I can’t remember her name) she filled in for the regular driver for that day. She was great, very informative. “The dam and the tour itself was very professionally ran . She then dropped everybody off at their hotel on the return. My opinion money very well spent. Sweet tours we thank you very much.

I really enjoyed this tour. Our driver was funny and informative. He told us the history of the Hoover Dam and Las Vegas. We got a full tour guided and unguided so we could take many pictures. I’m glad I decided to not miss this trip.
