We had driven over the Hoover Dam many times when it was the only way to drive from Phoenix to Las Vegas. The parapet walls on the Bypass bridge are too high to see over when you're driving so you have to park and walk out along a footpath to get then view. It's well worth the walk. The view... More

The dam was very impressive to see. We got there a little late so it was a little crowded. When going into the visitor center, be aware that you will be searched. Just like an airport.

Drove thru here during our trip to Vegas. It was very windy and cold so we didn't do much sight seeing. But we did take some photos and the views were beautiful. I made us feel proud to be at a place where American engineering is so much on display in all its beauty.

Took my grandchildren to this engineering marvel. My granddaughter wanted to know why they had toys down by the water (We were over 800 feet above the Colorado River and the equipment used at the dam looked like toys). Amazing.

The views are so beautiful, and the tour inside was great. I would like to go back and take the grandkids with me. Would highly recommend this tour. Must see.

We spent the day traveling from Las Vegas to the Hoover Dam. It's definitely a site to cross off the bucket list. The construction and the sights are worth the visit.

I had seen the Hoover Dam before, many years ago, but had not seen the bypass bridge since it has been completed. Cool to see both, especially if you enjoy or appreciate construction and how things get built. Awesome sights.

Worth seeing by anyone. Amazing to learn about the complication of delivering water to us & learning the history of the construction.

Truly enjoyed the trip. Nice facts given on our tour. The bridge is a piece of modern engineering. Took the walk up to the top and across the bridge. Great views of the dam and river, this is a view that is perfect for those who cannot afford the helicopter rides. Nice little tour thru Bolder City. We even got... More
