What to expect
This small-group Hoover Dam Expedition Tour is a tour that takes you back in time to one of the man-made Wonders of the Modern World. Leaving Las Vegas behind, you will travel through the historic government built town of Boulder City (created for the workers of the dam) and on to the Lake Mead National Recreation Area, home to the largest man-made body of water in the Western Hemisphere. In Boulder City we will enjoy a hearty sit-down breakfast at a local diner (included in tour price). After breakfast, continue onto Hoover Dam, making two scenic stops along the way. Arriving at Hoover Dam you will be guided through the visitors centre by one of the Bureau of Reclamation government guides. Here, you can view exhibits from the period and discover the history of Hoover Dam. Take a seat and enjoy a 10 minute movie presentation on the construction of what was originally known as "Boulder" Dam. Then it's off to view the giant generators on the Bureau of Reclamation Power Plant Tour where you will travel down over 500 feet and maybe have water drip on your head! NO It's not leaking - it's called seeping and is a natural occurrence of all rocks near rivers. As you arrive at the base of Hoover Dam you will be able to marvel at the  generators within the power station. They must be seen to be believed! After the Government tour, its time to explore the top of Hoover Dam at your leisure. Take photos, read plaques and step into two states at once!

Best way to experience Hoover Dam
Dec 2018
This was a great outing for our family gathering of 10 people over Christmas week. Dean was extremely knowledgable about Vegas, Boulder City and the Hoover Dam. He took us to the Coffee Cup Cafe in Boulder City for a wonderful breakfast before heading on to the Hoover Dam. The Hoover Dam was packed - crazy crowded - but Dean knew where to go, what to do first, how to maneuver through the crowds - he was indispensable to our visit turning out to be so rewarding on such a busy day. I would highly recommend Dean as a small group tour guide - well worth the cost - our day was fantastic!

Exceeded expectations!
Dec 2018 • Family
I really can't say enough how much we enjoyed every minute of this tour. It was my husband, myself and 2 teenage daughters. Other people cancelled so it ended up just being Dean and our family. He didn't miss a beat and made our day wonderful. Breakfast was super and every tidbit of knowledge was interesting. We can't thank Dean enough for a wonderful tour.
I had read all the great reviews and he still exceeded our expectations. Don't hesitate to book this!

Great Tour!
Dec 2018 • Family
Dean was a wonderful tour guide! He picked up our family from our hotel on The Strip and took us to an amazing breakfast at the Coffee Cup. Dean is full of knowledge and we had a great time with him at the Hoover Dam. I would recommend this tour to anyone.

If You see the Hoover Dam without Dean, You're Missing Out
Jul 2018 • Family
Pros:

Dean picked us up right at our hotel lobby (Hard Rock Hotel) and also picked up one other family that went with us at the Bellagio.

First stop was the Las Vegas sign. Perfect time of day before the rush gets there. He knew the history and was just really fun overall. Got great pictures.

Second stop Boulder City where the folks who built the Hoover Dam lived. I absolutely loved the Hoover Dam but it was in large part due to visiting Boulder City and seeing it up close and learning about it first from Dean. Wow.

Breakfast at a really fun diner in Boulder City. I like to eat... I wasn't disappointed. Great food and service and included in the price. Dean is basically a celebrity at this place, as he should be... awesome diner

Great tour of Lake Mead and Hoover Dam. Dean knows the history and the shortcuts on where to go and when.

Pre-purchased tickets to go down into the dam were very cool.

Cons:
Nothing. If you see the Hoover Dam without Dean you're missing half of the experience.

Never made the trip
Jul 2018 • Family
I am so disappointed! We chose this company for a trip to the Hoover Dam on July 9. The trip was booked 2 weeks prior. Less than 24 hours before our excursion, I was contacted by email, not phone or text, to inform us that they had overbooked our trip for the next morning and they were going to reschedule us for 3 days later. This was impossible as we were only in town for the day.
Communication with the group is/was terrible. Two suggestions were given of other companies we could go with, but we decided to just go on our own and I let them know that the same night.
No refund was ever issued. I have been trying for 4 weeks now to get a refund and have had to turn it over to my credit card company.
There have been texts, phone calls and emails sent repeatedly. I was emailed by Dean at one point saying he was looking in to why we weren't issued a refund and I have still seen NOTHING! So disappointing since I chose this company because they had wonderful reviews
I would most definitely discourage choosing them for your adventures.

Awesome Trip
Jul 2018 • Family
We did the tour and it was awesome from the beginning to the end. First, we got picked up from our hotel in a very nice, clean passenger van. Next, came the best breakfast (meal) we had in Vegas. Dean shared so much information with us. He was informative, funny, and made you feel comfortable. He was very considerate with cold water on hand and always starting the van with cool A/C before we were finished at each site. This tour was a highlight of our trip. Before our trip I did a lot of research. I am so glad we went with Dean Outdoor. It was the best! 10 Stars from us!

Gold Mine Tour
Feb 2018 • Family
First off my daughter found Dean on TA and it was such a surprise to go on a tour. We were picked up early (7:00) for an outstanding day. We headed to Hoover Dam for photos and alot of information about the dam. We had plenty of stops along the way which was convienent with four kids. But the best part of the day was learning about Nevada and going inside an old gold mine. The kids were more thrilled about going into the mine than a lot of the info so it was worth doing this kind of tour. Our guide had alot of pacients and fun fact that the kids related to. Give their tour a try for a great getaway.

FANTASTIC TOUR!
Nov 2017 • Couples
The tour guide was very knowledgable and made our trip with his interesting facts on the Hoover dam. Some of the other tour guests failed to show up so it was the guide my partner and I only. The guide didn’t let this faze him and went the extra mile to make us comfortable and make our day memorable. One of the highlights of our holiday and I can’t recommend enough.

Dean is the 'Dam Man' :)
Jan 2018 • Family
This is a MUST DO. Dean knows his stuff! Dean makes the ride to the dam informative and entertaining. We arrived at the dam with the background/frame of reference needed to make the visit more personal. Dean shares the history that entwines Las Vegas and Boulder City, and he explains how that relationship influenced both communities (the stories are very entertaining!). The breakfast stop in Boulder City was delightful (and yummy)! The dam was everything we expected: awesome and inspiring. Our teenage kids enjoyed the adventure, too! Our son talked Star Wars pretty much non-stop all day, and Dean was patient and engaging. Bottom Line: If you’re in Vegas, make time to see the dam and book Dean as the guide to get you there.

Dean, thank you!! We had a great time!
