Highlights
  • Go over and inside the historic Hoover Dam
  • Travel to Hoover Dam in climate-controlled comfort
  • Enjoy views of Lake Mead and the desert
  • Convenient pickup and drop-off at Las Vegas hotels
What to expect
  • Choose the departure time that suits your schedule, then leave the city for a scenic, 33-mile (53-km) drive through the desert, passing historic Boulder City on your way to the Hoover Dam. Learn about the dam workers who lived in Boulder City in the early 1930s, and get views across Lake Mead, the second-largest manmade lake in the Western Hemisphere. You’ll cross over the top of the dam, then pause for 15 to 20 minutes at the Arizona Lookout, which offers a great perspective on the entire dam area, including the Bypass Bridge. The next stop is the Hoover Dam Visitors Center, where you’ll join the two-hour Power Plant Tour. Learn about the history of the dam on a tour that combines exhibits, film presentations, and guides, and get a good overview of how the massive dam functions. Following your Power Plant Tour, you’ll have some free time to shop or visit the Hoover Dam restaurant, then begin the return trip to Las Vegas, where this tour concludes with drop-off at your original departure point.

Great way to visit Hoover Dam!
Sep 2021
Bil C was our driver/guide on this tour. He was prompt, courteous, and informative. Once we were on the tour I was so glad we booked instead of driving ourselves because the driver needed to be fully focused and familiar with the hilly, curvy, narrow roads and not looking around enjoying the views. But as a passenger, I was able to look at everything and enjoy the ride with the bonus of great narration along the way. Experiencing Mike O'Callaghan... bridge and Hoover Dam up close and in person was amazing. It was easy to book and Sweetours provided a great day traveling to, at, and back from Hoover Dam.

Aug 2021 • Couples
Skip and Oliver, our guide and driver, respectively, were wonderful! The tour was everything you could ask for, plus a few extra (bonus) stops since COVID-19 has the power plant tours shut down. It was a perfect mixture of tour and self-exploration. I would absolutely recommend this tour to everyone.

It was a great experience for families with small children, friends, and couples.

We went on a beautiful day! There was a deep blue sky, fluffy white clouds, and a breeze when we go to the dam. The tour stopped at a scenic outlook of Lake Mead where we got of the bus and took pics. Then back on and on to the dam. The inside tour of dam was still closed. However, one of the souvenir shops and a café were opened. You can walk across the bridge and see the dam from that angle. Inside the dam property, you can walk the area with has some inclines to get to parking lots. There is a sign stating Arizona Stateline on one section and a Nevada marker on the other. You can literally walk from Nevada to Arizona and back within minutes. This is a nice trip for couples, group of friends, and families with small children.
