Enjoy Our Hoover Dam Tours from Las Vegas

Standing 726 feet high on the Nevada-Arizona state line, the impressive Hoover Dam is a popular destination for visitors to Las Vegas. The concrete arch-gravity dam harnesses the flow of the Colorado River and is located in the Black Canyon.

Hoover Dam once formed Lake Mead, one of the largest manmade lakes in the world, which provided power, flood control, irrigation, and water to the surrounding areas. With nearly one million people touring the dam each year, Hoover Dam excursions are a popular tourist attraction, and for good reason!

Our Hoover Dam guided tours will get you up close and personal with this spectacular feat of engineering by bus, kayak, raft, or aircraft. At just 40 minutes from Las Vegas, this landmark is not to be missed. Check out our Hoover Dam trips to choose your own adventure!

We have several Hoover Dam Tours from Las Vegas. If you want an experience to remember, soar over the Hoover Dam from above as you leave Sin City on a Grand Canyon Helicopter Tour. Get the VIP treatment as you’re whisked away to the Colorado Plateau, home of the jaw-dropping Grand Canyon. There’s nothing quite like this bird’s eye view!

If you’d rather stay on the ground, try our 2-Day Grand Canyon Camping Tour from Las Vegas where you’ll make a stop at Hoover Dam and Route 66. Spend a night under the stars at the Grand Canyon (camping and hotel options) and get more out of this truly amazing National Park.

With the bright lights of Sin City, the history of the Hoover Dam and Route 66, and the natural wonder of the Grand Canyon, this all-encompassing tour does not disappoint!


During the Great Depression, between 1931 and 1936, the Hoover Dam was constructed. It was dedicated by President Franklin D. Roosevelt on September 30, 1935. Originally known as Boulder Dam in 1933, it was officially renamed Hoover Dam by Congress in 1947. The dam was named after President Herbert Hoover, whose administration secured the necessary agreements for the project’s construction.

Its construction was the result of thousands of workers, and the dangerous work cost over one hundred lives in the process. With the influx of blue-collar workers, engineers, and government employees to this area of the Southwest, the Hoover Dam is credited to have helped make the city of Las Vegas (and the nearby town of Boulder City) what it is today.
