For More Information

The Hoover Dam Tour offers a unique way to see, learn and appreciate what Hoover Dam is all about. This tour offers guided exploration into lesser known parts of the dam, and lasts longer than the Powerplant Tour.

Note: The Dam Tour includes a 1-hour guided tour of the powerplant and passageways within the dam itself, and admission to the Visitor Center; the Powerplant Tour includes a 30-minute guided tour of the powerplant only, and admission to the Visitor Center.

The first Dam Tour is offered at 9:30 a.m. (Pacific Time); tours continue every half hour throughout the day until 3:30 p.m. This guided tour is offered on a first come-first served basis (only 20 people allowed on each tour), and lasts about one hour. The route requires over a mile of walking on concrete or similar hard surfaces.

No reservations are taken for this tour; tickets must be purchased at Hoover Dam (credit cards and cash accepted).

Adults, Seniors, Juniors & U.S. Military $30.00
NO children under age 8 permitted
Note: This tour is NOT accessible for visitors
with wheelchairs or crutches

Due to situations beyond our control, Dam tours may be cancelled periodically with no prior notice.
