Leave behind the lights of Las Vegas and embark on a journey to human ingenuity and the power of nature!
Get on the bus at The Strip in Las Vegas and you will be taken to the most extraordinary engineering feat in America with a guide, walk up and down with the ranger to the turbine room and the generator.
The dam is 221 m high, 198 m wide at the bottom and has been responsible for supplying electricity to Nevada, California and Arizona for almost 80 years.
In the 90 minutes at the Hoover Dam you can walk over and enjoy a guided tour by a guide inside the dam. You can also read its history and purpose in the Visitor Center.
This tour includes a photo stop at the Mike O'Callaghan Memorial Bridge, with views of the Hoover Dam 274 m above the Colorado River. The total time in the area of the Hoover Dam is about two hours (includes time on the bridge).
