Dam good experience with Pam!
Joe_A, Sept 2023
It was a great experience. Learned a lot from Pam she was very knowledgeable. Totally recommend this if you are in Vegas!
Great experience if you don't have much time.
Chaffee_V, Sept 2023
Had a great time on this! Exactly what I needed. While they offer a very comprehensive tour, this was the express tour which I needed in my situation. Pam's stories were fantastic, and she even stopped so I could take a picture of myself with the Arizona sign! Highly recommend. Cost effective as well.

Mini Hoover Dam Tour
Angel_M, Sept 2023
Getting to stop near Lake Mead 😊 Morning tour was great 😊 Driver was so friendly and knowledgeable 😊 3 hours was perfect 😊 Since our bus just had 12 people on board and 5 of us were staying at the Aria Hotel - I don’t understand why we had to go to the Horseshoe hotel to be picked up - we picked up 2 at the Excalibur at their hotel front - just don’t understand why bus driver couldn’t pick us up at the Aria hotel - half the tour was staying there ☹️

Excellent, informative tour
Andrea_V, Sept 2023
Our tour guide Pam shared a good amount of info in a short time, in a very consumable way. If you’d like to see the Dam and are limited on time, this is the way to go! The tour stayed on time, while hitting all of the major interest points. Overall a very good experience - and we learned a few new things along the way!
A Welcome Respite from the Strip!
William_C, Sept 2023
Several events stand out. I'm researching a novel, so stopping at the Lake Mead Overlook was special for me, looking out over the Boulder Basin. Walking out onto the Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge was exciting--the wind was blowing so hard I thought it was going to knock me down! And the views of Hoover Dam were spectacular. Most of all, I have to give kudos to our tour guide John, who was knowledgeable, entertaining, and very engaging. He really made the trip work.
Awesome Pam's Dam tour
Philip_B, Sept 2023
Pam was so knowledgeable and passionate about the history surrounding the dam, she made the trip so worthwhile. So much was packed into a 3 hour trip.
