Hoover Dam Tour Highlights
Your Hoover Dam Experience
The Hoover Dam stands as a tribute to US ingenuity and engineering during a time of adversity and hardship. On the Hoover Dam Classic Guided Tour, you’ll gain remarkable views on, around and above this National Civil Engineering Landmark.
Your tour guide will pick you up at your hotel in a custom Tour Trekker vehicle, designed to provide comfort and unobstructed views. You’ll see Lake Mead, the country’s largest man-made reservoir, and historic Boulder City, built to house dam workers. A visit to the Boulder Dam Museum inside the Boulder Dam Hotel gives the first look at the Hoover Dam story.
The Hoover Dam is the shining gem of our tour; standing over 700 feet tall, it has the capacity to irrigate two million acres and provides power to southern California, Nevada and Arizona. Built over 4 years during the Great Depression, its creation provided thousands of jobs.
A walk over the 900-feet-tall Michael O’Callaghan—Pat Tillman Bridge provides a bird’s view of the Dam; this is a view of the mighty dam as it holds back Lake Mead.
Your Tour Trekker will then take you to the Arizona side of the dam, where you’ll see a spillway so large a World War II battleship could float through it; each spillway can handle the flow of Niagara Falls. The Hoover Dam is a National Historic Landmark, and has been a filming location for Hollywood hits like “Superman” (1978, Warner Bros.), “Viva La Vegas” (1964, MGM) and “Transformers” (2007, DreamWorks).
Head to the observation deck for breathtaking views of the Colorado River and Lake Mead. You can even walk along the dam itself. Then, you can even walk along the dam itself.
