It's so breathtaking, inside as well as outside. We took the tour and got to go inside the cave-like hallways and the tour guide gave us one hell of a 'dam' tour!! Explaining every part of the process to us."

Features: The Hoover Dam tour is an interesting and informative upclose look at one the Seven Wonders of the Industrial World with expert guides leading tourists through the dam's powerplant, passageways and visitor center.
Why We Go: At the time of the Hoover Dam's completion in 1936, it was the largest concrete structure in the world and revolutionized hydroelectric power. Taking a tour through the inside of the Hoover Dam is the best way to get the most enjoyment out of the experience.
- The Passageways: The tour begins with a 70-second elevator ride that takes you 530-feet down into the center of the dam, where visitors are taken through cool cave-like tunnels drilled in the 1930's for construction purposes.
- The Powerplant: Providing power to much of the southwest United States, the Hoover Dam's 17 huge generators are shown and explained on the tour, making for one of the most interesting parts.
Inside Knowledge: The dam's original name was Boulder Dam, only to be changed in 1947 to Hoover Dam in order to honor President Herbert Hoover, who played a pivotal role in its creation.
Do's and Don'ts:
- Do Take the Full Tour: There are three different tour types offered at the Hoover Dam. Get the most bang for your buck by spending a little extra money for a longer tour that goes much deeper into the dam.
- Don't Be Shy, Ask Questions: The Hoover Dam is massive and complicated. Your knowledgeable tour guides will be happy to answer any of your dam questions.
