Right on the edge of Arizona and Nevada. When there's not to many places now you can tour because of insurance, along comes a hidden gem. Take a tour down into the dam itself. history of how it was built, why, and the many things...More

Even if you do not have time to tour the dam, make sure to stop and get pictures. The water from Lake Mead was way down since I had last been here in 1974.

This is so much nicer to drive! You get to Las Vegas 30 minutes faster this way. You don't have to stop and have someone check your car and then wait in a long line to get across the dam.

I have always planned on visiting Hover Dam. The guided tour was excellent and to learn about the history and how the dam was made was riveting. The area is beautiful and the view off the dam was breath taking.

Did a quick trip out to see the Dam. It was very impressive. Didn't realize just how large and deep it was. Would recommend as a must see.

Nice little stop to see on a little side trip we took. The only problem is that we had our dogs with us and certain parking lots wouldn't let us park and walk our dogs from the lots but we could from others as long...More

I am not sure what I was expecting out of a dam, but I was disappointed with this site. If you are pressed for time in the Vegas area, I would opt to skip this one. While some people enjoy hearing about the operation and...More

It is a "Have to see". It is simply incredible. You don't know the magnitude of the dam until you are actually standing there.

We rented a car. However, while we were at the dam and bridge, we saw several tour buses. I guess you would have to see if the tour stopped at the bridge.

I can't imagine that you can fully appreciate the magnitude of this dam without taking the tour and going down into the belly of this beast. Yes the outside areas are incredible but even more so is what's underground and... More

I highly advise you rent or bring a mobility scooter especially if you are also visiting the Las Vegas area as it will be way too much walking for you. One block or two can talk a healthy person a half hour to an hour as the... More
