Next, head into the Hoover Dam Visitor Center where you can see the history of Hoover Dam and view numerous exhibits that explain how the dam was built, how it operates and who benefits from the water and electricity.

Then take a fully guided Walk on the Top tour — a comprehensive 45-minute walking tour over the top of the dam. Snap photographs of Lake Mead at the scenic Lake Mead Overlook before enjoying an early afternoon lunch at a restaurant on the way back to Las Vegas (see menu options below).

Thank you for allowing me to fulfill one of my bucket list items. The tour was great, Trevor was an excellent host the whole time! He was knowledgeable funny and easy to talk with. His answer to questions about the tour site and it's operation were insightful and made the experience memorable. The lunch was good, his arrival in the morning was as scheduled. The water on the coach was unexpected, but we was grateful to have it! I would highly recommend this tour and Trevor as host if you can. I would also like to thank Rick for his excellent driving, I drove the same route the next day and wondered how he had done it so calmly. Good job Rick! The only disappointment I had was that the elevators were down for repair that day and I really wanted to get a feel for the scale of the interior of the dam. I also realize that the tour and host had no idea that the elevators would be under repair that day and do NOT blame Viator in any way. Take the time to do the tour as you will be amazed at what was created by man 80 years ago. I highly recommend this tour.

Great Dam experience!! The tour guide was funny and pointed out great facts throughout the tour. Even took us to the small museum at the end of the tour in Boulder, which was really nice. I could've stayed there longer, so interesting. The Dam was awesome! Always wanted to go and it was worth it. I could've stayed there longer as well. The lunch was great! The service was quick and it filled you up. Enjoyed the entire experience, will recommend for anyone.

We really enjoyed this tour. Well worth it. Our guide was very knowledgeable and very funny.

This tour was wonderful. Our guide Trez was extremely knowledgeable and entertaining. The Hoover Dam is truly something everyone should see. It was the best Dam tour!

Jason and Kenny rock! We felt welcomed the instant we met them at the bus. We were kept entertained and informed the entire trip. Jason has an in-depth knowledge of Hoover Dam and shared it with us. He coached us through everything from the security checkpoint to the government tour letting us know what to expect and where to get the best pictures. Kenny drove like a pro. The trip was smooth and enjoyable. Lunch at the end was also a great touch. Thanks. DefIntitely would take another trip with Kenny and a Jason.

We had a great time on this tour. Our guide was hilarious and informative. It was so much more than just seeing the dam.

My husband and I greatly enjoyed this tour. Jason is a knowledgeable and funny guide. The dam is amazing and it's interesting to learn about. Lunch was mediocre and I would have preferred to skip it to get back to the hotel sooner, but that's my only criticism. Great experience overall.

Great tour. Pre 9/11 I understand you saw more, but what we did see was great. Jason our guide was VG. Glad we went.

Jason and Pedro were awesome. Great tour, very informative, lots of laughs,great lunch!! Highly recommend.

this was a great tour. guide was Jason, funny guy. driver was phil and great. both are very knowledgeable. we could not go to the generator area due to an elevator problem and they refunded a portion of the money. but still it was a great tour.

This tour is excellent. The tour guide is very knowledgeable and entertaining. I wish we had more free time to take photos and go through the self guided part of the tour.

Excellent tour made by our tour guide Trevor He was very knowledgeable of the history of the Dam and being a stand up comic we had a lot of laughs The presentation at the Dam by the Reclamation department was very interesting if a little short The only thing I would change would be to have lunch in Boulder City if a suitable restaurant was to be found

Fantastic!

Both Jason Tour Guide and Kenny Driver were fabulous! A lot of good information in addition to the Hoover Dam about Las Vegas etc. Great for those new to town like myself.

Comedy On Deck with Jason as our tour guide and Rick as our driver were great! Jason was very knowledgeable and provided a lot of historical information about the building of the dam, the history of Boulder City, and information about almost anything in Las Vegas that you would want. With a stop allowing photos to be taken from the suspension bridge before the tour of Hoover Dam, a stop in Boulder City, and lunch on the way back to the Las Vegas Strip, it was a great day all the way around.

We had an amazing time. Jason, our guide, was very knowledgeable, personable and funny. The information he shared with us was fantastic! Well done!!! He encouraged questions and always had an answer. Our driver, Kenny, was also very good at what he did. We never once questioned our safety. We would definitely choose them again. Thank you!

Fun and informative!

Never a dull moment the bus ride was comfortable and it wasn't a long ride to the dam. A lot of history and very amazing

We really enjoyed our trip to the Hoover Dam with Trevor as our guide. Very knowledgeable - great personality!!

An excellent trip and def worth doing. The coach journey was very entertaining from start to finish. Before walking over the Dam we stopped off first at the Memorial Bridge to see the Dam and part of Lake Mead. The Dam itself was spectacular and getting down into the Dam and an explanation of how it was built was great. Then on to Bolder City to see the original hotel and houses were the workers stayed then stopping off for lunch before returning to Vegas. A great trip and well worth the money!!!

What a enjoyable trip we had on the Comedy Bus for the Hoover Dam Tour. Our Guide was funny and infornative. The view and sites were awesome! The trip to Boulder City Museum was an added bonus. The lunch was delicious, and the tickets to the Mac King show were wonderful! We enjoyed our tour and extras very much!
