Highlights
  • 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. All of our fully air-conditioned buses have panoramic windows for optimal viewing opportunities, and bathrooms on board.

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.

  • Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas Sign - We include a photo stop at the famous Welcome to Las Vegas Sign - Our guides will show you the best place to stand to get your photos to create a happy memory of your time in Vegas.
  • Boulder City - Travel through historic Boulder City, viewing the quaint Dingbat houses which were built for the Dam Workers, and the historic Hoover Dam Hotel. We also make a stop here so you can visit the Hoover Dam Museum.
  • Hoover Dam Bypass - Our buses have an added treat, a photo stop at the new Hoover Dam bypass bridge for the single best view available of Hoover Dam. Get those cameras ready for the best selfie ever!
  • Hoover Dam - On arrival, you’ll begin with a generator viewing. Travel 524 feet (160 meters) into the walls of Black Canyon to view the Nevada power-plant, generators and a 30-foot-diameter (9-meter) pipe inside one of the four giant diversion tunnels.

Next, head into the Hoover Dam Visitor Center where you can see the history of Hoover Dam and view numerous exhibits that explain how the dam was built, how it operates and who benefits from the water and electricity.

Walk on the Top Tour - This is an exclusive, fully guided comprehensive 45-minute walk over the top of the dam. Your knowledgeable guide will touch all aspects of the dam including electricity, outlet works, intake towers, concrete, diversion tunnels, water/drought, deaths, wages, earthquakes, artwork, WWII and more.

  • Omelet House - Relax and enjoy pleasant conversation with fellow travelers over a hot made-to-order sit down Lunch on the way back to Las Vegas.

As you drive back to town, you might hear Vegas trivia about topics such like the mafia, casino moguls, activities, restaurant deals and more before being dropped off. Each guide has a unique style and information.

Hoover Dam - Best Tour Ever! - This tour was sooo awesome! it was the highlight of my Vegas trip! Johnny our tour guide was a great guide. This tour is strenuous with lots of walking and stair climbing at times. Wear your most comfy shoes and be sure you can manage the walking. It was amazing!!! I loved every bit of it

This is the “Best Dam Tour” !! - This is an excellent trip which was made even better by “Trevor” who made the tour both interesting as he knew so much about the dam and Vegas in general, but he was also really funny! Lunch was included via a stop off on the way back and was well organised but the food was just “ok”. That didn’t deter from a great day overall and would highly recommend this tour.
