from Hoover Dam “VIP” Tour
Located in Black Canyon on the Colorado River, the Hoover Dam is the highest structure of its kind in the world. It is an outstanding achievement, noteworthy not only for its enormous dimensions, complex design and intricate construction, but also for it's illustration of man's outstanding ability to overcome the desert's summer sun, the vagaries of a treacherous river, and the extreme hazards of great heights on the chasm's sheer walls.

This tour includes the Visitor Center and Historical Displays, views from the “interior” base of the dam into the Generator Room, the fascinating Hoover Dam Movie, with ample time for breathtaking views from the Top of the Dam, Lake Mead, the world's largest man-made lake, the eastern edge of the chasm in Arizona where you have fabulous views of the dam including Lake Mead. In addition, there are wonderful photo ops of the new Hoover Dam Bridge. Before returning to Las Vegas we stop at a local park where herds of Big Horn Sheep often come down from the surrounding mountains to gather and graze on the sweet grass.

Tour Includes: Unlimited Bottled Water & Snacks.

We booked this tour through Las Vegas.com and it was the right choice!!! Our tour guide, Scott was awesome!! He was informative, knowledgeable and funny! We were a small group of six and by the end of the tour, the 7 of us were great friends! Scott kept us fed and hydrated and was a pleasure to spend the day with. I would definitely book another tour with Adventure Photo! Definitely 5 stars!!

This tour was terrific. Bob, our guide was entertaining and informative. This was a small group tour in a very nice SUV. It was very comfortable and Bob made sure we had plenty of water throughout the day to stay hydrated. A very nice brown bag lunch and a light breakfast snack was also included. It was a long drive to the grand canyon and back in one day, but we had ample pit stops for the bathroom as well. All in all it was a great day and I would definitely recommend this company. If I come back to Vegas, I would for sure book another tour with adventure photo

"Ultimate Hoover Dam tour - not enough time!"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed September 25, 2019 NEW
Just done this tour this morning. Been to the dam 8 years ago and the actual place and facilities have improved since then. The APT tour coach was on time and the driver/guide (Scott) was pleasant, knowledgeable and helpful. However, the major problem with this tour is the time allocated at the dam itself. Fitting in the official tour with the generator room and everything else you really should see is just not possible in the time they give you. They gave us about 1 1/2 hours, which sounds plenty but, the official tour lasts about 1hr (short film, waiting, walking, elevators, guide discussions etc.). This leaves about 30mins for EVERYTHING else!. Just not enough time. If you want a whistlestop dam tour just seeing the official tour and taking a few snaps then this tour is OK. If you want enough time to see and do everything (look at other exhibits, fantastic photo and video places/shots, walk across the dam itself, gift shopping, perhaps a bite to eat) then you need to do a different tour and NOT this one. I must stress that it was not the driver/guides fault as he is obviously following a preset schedule. APT is a good company and I have been on about 9 or 10 different tours with them but this specific tour needs changing to deliver what the paying tourists expect.

It was a thoroughly enjoyable day and I would highly recommend booking a tour with this Company. If you do ask for Barry, what a great guy and guide.
