The Best Hoover Dam Tours from Las Vegas

See the Hoover Dam on a Grand Canyon Tour

Many Hoover Dam Tours from Las Vegas will combine a trip to Hoover Dam with a Grand Canyon Tour. We offer 3 such tours, with the lowest dam tour starting at $169, to $259 for a two-day tour that includes a sunset over the Grand Canyon National Park, Antelope Canyon, and a stop at the Hoover Dam.
Most companies that advertise a stop at the Hoover Dam on the way to the Grand Canyon won’t take you to the Hoover Dam. Instead, you will visit the Bridge overlook, which offers a pleasant view of the dam however this can leave a lot to be desired if you were planning on experiencing the dam.

Why Visit The Hoover Dam?

The Hoover Dam is one of the most impressive engineering marvels of the 20th century. At 726 feet tall, this concrete arch-gravity dam was the tallest dam in the world when it was finished in 1935 and is still the second tallest dam in the United States. Behind the dam lies Lake Mead, a massive reservoir that covers 157,900 acres and is the largest reservoir in the United States. The mixture of a man-made concrete wonder, the rugged beauty of Black Canyon, the barren Nevada desert, and the shimmering water of Lake Mead make for striking scenery. There is a lot to see when you visit the dam, we will pack a lot of sights into the 80 minutes spent there. Here is what to expect on a typical tour.

Depending on your tour, you may also stop at Seven Magic Mountains. Drive through the second largest city in Nevada, Henderson, as you make your way towards the dam.
