Full description
After being picked up from your hotel in Las Vegas, board the luxury tour bus and set off for the Hoover Dam. First, stop at the Pat Tillman- Mike O'Callaghan Memorial Bridge that is across from the Dam. Enjoy an incredible view of the Dam and Colorado River. Have the option to walk on the Bypass Bridge - the only place that you can see the entire front of the Hoover Dam.

For the next 2 hours, see the Dam from many different angles and viewpoints, learn about its construction, history, and impact on the local area. See its inner workings and gain a deeper appreciation for this man-made wonder. Explore the inside of the facility’s Powerplant tour 530 feet down, and take a scenic ride to view many of the plant's massive generators. Next, head to the Visitor Center Exhibit Gallery, where you can explore videos and interactive exhibits that give you more insight and understanding into the Hoover Dam.

Go to the Observation Deck, perfect for panoramic photo opportunities of Lake Mead (the largest human-made lake in the country), the Colorado River, the Bypass Bridge, and other features of the Dam. Finally, walk outside on the Dam to see more highlights. See Lake Mead on one side and the Colorado River on the other. Also, look straight down to see the Dam stretching 726 feet to the bottom of the canyon below, a breathtaking view.
