Not to be missed. Fun to walk across the top of the dam and enter another U S state, and then back again just as easily! Take the tour of the dame workings and history of the Dams construction.
This was a welcome change from the Vegas Strip and casinos. Amazing views down to the base of the dame.

This is a great place to stop, and it is close to Las Vegas. Lake Mead against the tan mountains is just pretty. I enjoyed walking the long, high bridge that looks over the water, too. It was so windy! But, the tour was really good, and the tour guide was super friendly. It was was neat, scenic, but really hot! Drink a lot of water if you go during the summer. And I think it would be worth it to park under a shelter close to the visitor's center.

Been to Vegas several times amd finally got to go this time. The dam tour was already booked on the time we wanted so we just picked the plant tour. It was very informational and we were just in awe at this great feat. What an impressive work of mankind. We are proud to be part of this land of great inventors and innovators

I was never a history buff, but quit the gambling and partying for half an day and take a bus tour to the Hoover Dam! We have been there two times (skipped it the first time because I didn't see the importance). Go down inside the mountain to see the combines and the works - well worth it, and I am a girl! This is one time when the over-used "AMAZING" is appropriate. Truly. See this and stand on the bridge between two states. We enjoyed the bus tour because the driver told us so much of the local history way back to the present that we would have missed if we drove there. There's a lot to see other that the lights when in Vegas so we highly recommend seeing this. Children will be amazed, too, and the newly built bridge is also incredible!

We arrived early in the morning and were able to purchase our desired tour time. The place was really busy after we arrived so early morning arrival is key.

We did the $30 tour which included going inside the the dam. Just the history and structure alone are worth seeing. Granted $30 seems a bit much for the entire tour but it was worth seeing and experiencing. Our tour guide was very informative and funny. She kept it interesting and answered all of our questions. There is tight security so don't bring drinks, food, or pocket knives.

The views were great.
