Once the world’s tallest dam, the Hoover Dam towers over the Mojave Desert with spectacular views across Nevada. This guided tour from Las Vegas takes you deep inside the dam, descending to the observation room to see its massive generators at work. Since morning and afternoon departures are available, this Hoover Dam tour is a convenient excursion that can be added to a day of sightseeing in Las Vegas.
  • Don’t miss the Hoover Dam when you’re in Las Vegas
  • This guided tour gets you inside and above the dam
  • See the gorgeous desert that surrounds the Hoover Dam
  • Experience a piece of America’s engineering history
  • You don't need a car—hotel pickup and drop-off are included
What to Expect
Meet your driver at select Las Vegas hotels and take in views of the Mojave Desert on the drive to the Hoover Dam. When you get to the Hoover Dam, get perspectives on the dam from both the Arizona and Nevada sides of the Colorado River, and have your camera ready as you cross the Mike O’Callaghan-Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge. Start with a guided tour of the dam interior, with live presentations and a film about the history and construction of the Hoover Dam. See the exhibit gallery and the observation deck, and then drop down into the observation room to watch the dam’s powerful generators in action. Finally, begin the scenic trip back to Las Vegas, where this tour concludes with drop-off at your original departure point.

Hey there, thanks for taking the time to share your experience with DETOURS! Jimmy Vegas is one of the most accommodating guides, so we aren't surprised to hear that he was able to make up for the generator room being closed (which is always unfortunate but as it is out of our hands, we do what we can to make up for it!)

My husband and I went on a Hoover Dam Tour with James as our guide. He was excellent, providing us with all sorts of information about Las Vegas and the surrounding area on the way to and from the Hoover Dam. He was very knowledgeable and we learned a lot about Boulder City,

Hello Laura, Unfortunately the Hoover Dam's generator room scheduling is out of our control which is always something we hate to see happen. We do appreciate the understanding, however! We're glad to hear that the remainder of your tour was most excellent. Thomas is a wonderful guide to have take anyone around the Hoover Dam or anywhere in the Southwest for that matter! Thank you for reaching out and sharing your experience with DETOURS. We appreciate the kind words and recommendations very much! We hope to see you again soon. :)

There was only 2 of us on this tour due to a lot of cancellations however the driver Alvin made us feel so welcome and the trip was exceptional. I had come from Australia and I especially loved seeing inside the Hoover Dam ... 540 feet below the ground. Highly recommended tour

Hey there! Impromptu private tours ain't too bad! Alvin is quite personable, so it comes as no surprise that he was able to accommodate you in such a way whilst on tour. We've got some massive man made structures here on the opposite side of the world! We're glad that we could make this trip possible for you and we hope that one day if you're ever here again that we can show you around to some other incredible destinations here within the Southwest! Thanks for taking the time to share your experience with DETOURS. We appreciate it. :)
