Your professional guide will personally escort you throughout your tour to help you make the most of your Hoover Dam experience. Several areas of interest along the way include the historic Boulder City - originally a Federal town built to house the workers building the Hoover Dam, the beautiful Lake Mead - the largest man-made body of water in the western hemisphere and dramatic views of the Colorado River. At the dam you’ll see a live presentation on the Dam’s construction and history, and walk through the exhibit galleries and picturesque observation deck. Finally, venture down to the power plant to view the massive generators. The Hoover Dam Discovery Tour offers ample time for thoroughly exploring this National Historic Landmark and engineering wonder of the world.
Your journey continues on the Lower Portal Road where construction crews were bussed daily to their work sites. You’ll see the old de-silting tank, the original gauging station and the dynamite storage bunkers. Then, a guided Colorado River float tour by raft offers you close-up views few people have ever seen of Hoover Dam; its mighty power plants, diversion tunnels, as well as the colorful rocks and sheer cliffs of Black Canyon. You’ll also learn historical facts and get an astounding view of the Hoover Dam Bypass project and construction of the nearly 2000-foot-long bridge spanning over 900 feet above the river. Enjoy this half-day trip in your luxury custom Tour Trekker that seats 10 passengers allowing you a more personalized experience. Your Tour Trekker runs on bio-diesel and is environmentally friendly.
