This small-group Hoover Dam Expedition Tour is a tour that takes you back in time to one of the man-made Wonders of the Modern World. Leaving Las Vegas behind, you will travel through the historic government built town of Boulder City (created for the workers of the dam) and on to the Lake Mead National Recreation Area, home to the largest man-made body of water in the Western Hemisphere. In Boulder City we will enjoy a hearty sit-down breakfast at a local diner (included in tour price).
After breakfast, continue onto Hoover Dam, making two scenic stops along the way. Arriving at Hoover Dam you will be guided through the visitors centre by one of the Bureau of Reclamation government guides. Here, you can view exhibits from the period and discover the history of Hoover Dam. Take a seat and enjoy a 10 minute movie presentation on the construction of what was originally known as "Boulder" Dam.
Then it's off to view the giant generators on the Bureau of Reclamation Power Plant Tour where you will travel down over 500 feet and maybe have water drip on your head! NO It's not leaking - it's called seeping and is a natural occurrence of all rocks near rivers. As you arrive at the base of Hoover Dam you will be able to marvel at the generators within the power station. They must be seen to be believed!
After the Government tour, its time to explore the top of Hoover Dam at your leisure. Take photos, read plaques and step into two states at once!

This tour is amazing!! We were picked up on time at the designated location by Dean Varos. Born and raised in Las Vegas, he has an incredible sense of history and the development of the area. In addition, he knows the places to stop for views and the best times to stop there to avoid crowds for best photos. At Boulder City, we had breakfast at a historic cafe featured in Diners and Dives. Before we reached to Hoover Dam, we stopped at several viewing spots where you could see Lake Mead and approaches to the Dam from many angles. Before we arrived, we also walked the new bridge that spans the gorge/canyon. At the Dam, we toured the diversion tunnels and the generators. On the way back to Vegas, we viewed mountain sheep. In summary, an extremely knowledgable guide and the best Hoover Dam tour you can buy.
Our tour of Hoover Dam was awesome. Our guide, Peter, was knowledgeable, efficient, accommodating and provided a very interesting tour. Would highly recommend this company.
Very enjoyable trip. Picked up at the hotel on time and then the other guests. Breakfast at a lovely place in Boulder City before the trip to the Dam. Had a wonderful day and highly recommend the service.
Awesome tour! It was just my guest and I on it so it was really like a personal tour. We even had the company owner, Dean himself. The breakfast in Boulder Dam was fantastic!
