Very nice tour with very experienced tour guides. Learn about the building of the dam and the bridge and how it is critical for water, power and outdoor activities.

This tour was very interesting. Great view from the top of the dam. Our guide was an electric engineer and had worked at the dam since the late 60s. Interesting to learn from him. This is just a great tour!

If you're just driving through and don't know exactly when you'll get to the dam, it is hard to plan for the tour (which you can book on-line). Unfortunately, the tours were full when we arrive, so we were limited to walking through the visitor...More

An impressive place and if you are visiting Lake Powell / Page you should stop there and take a look. Don't forget to go over the bridge by foot

yes...they can. Inexpensive....maybe $5. There was construction going on last fall so you could not go down into dam. Was still a good tour.

You don't have to book any tour, or pay any money to walk on the bridge, look around the Dam and take photos . Just make sure you have a hat, cold water bottle, as the sun is very strong. And enjoy . :-)

Which hotel are you looking at? You can call the hotel and ask them for a mini fridge. Sometimes you can get one for free, and sometimes they charge $5 a day. Most of the hotels we stayed at had mini fridges.
