Important Information

  • The tour is a large loop, returning along the same road you started on. We suggest you plan to spend the full-day touring if you want to visit all 14 stops. The earlier the start, the easier things are, and the less traffic. Las Vegas is crowded. We recommend you stop at downtown Boulder City for supplies. You’ll go through a Nevada Security Checkpoint upon approach to Hoover Dam. All vehicles are subject to inspection. Hoover Dam is open daily from 5 a.m. to 9 p.m. (except for Thanksgiving and Christmas Day). The entrance fee for Lake Mead (paid at the Fee Booth between the Visitor Center stop and the Boulder Beach stop) is $25 per vehicle, good for 7 consecutive days.
