A busy day at the dam. Very good tour with expert staff. I can now cross this off my bucket list. Well done!
An easy drive from Las Vegas, this historic site is worth a visit. The tour is very interesting and educational. Being inside the dam and seeing the giant turbines, walking through tunnels carved in the rock, and seeing the art deco bronze exterior doors were all unexpected treats. Well worth a visit.
The Hoover Dam, The bridge, Lake Mead, and Boulder city all require research and reading prior to the one hour tour. The Tour Guides are knowledgable, but their historical knowledge is limited. The more history, engineering, geology and political science one knows, the more valuable the one hour tour will be. We departed Marriot’s Grand Chateau at 11:00AM and returned... More
Pleasant drive from Vegas or can ride tour bus. Visited once before 9/11 & tours extended deep into the guts of the dam but that is not allowed anymore [understandably]. Just walking around the top is a marvelous sight & free! They still have fee based tours for parts of the plant. You just can't visit Vegas & not see... More
Awesome structure to view. Geologically interesting to see the surrounding hills above the water line of the river. The massive amount of time and energy and work force that used to build the huge concrete wall was unimaginable. A must see for any age group.

The dam, designed in high Art Deco style, plopped in the middel of the desert, makes for a surreal masterpiece. The tour will take you inside to see the meticulously preserved inlaid floors and other intricate details, as well the giant whirring turbines and grand interior halls. This was an unforgettable experience, and makes a wonderful break from the Strip... More
We arrived at the dam at around 9 am and I'm so glad we did! Following the advise from other reviewers, we parked for free after crossing the dam. At that time of day, there was plenty of parking. We went on the plant tour and went to the Visitors Center which also requires a ticket. For two of us... More
My wife and I rented a car and drove to the Hoover dam at around 8am before the crowds arrived. The visitor centre opens at 9am so bear that in mind if you want to tour the dam facilities. We walked the dam and then visited the new flyover where you can park nearby and then walk up to the... More
