Full description
Spend a day visiting the Hoover Dam and Lake Mead on an 8-hour guided tour.

After a short briefing by your driver, you will be taken directly to Hoover Dam (one of the 7 man-made wonders of the world) by way of historic Boulder City where you’ll get a magnificent view of Lake Mead, the world’s largest man-made lake. When you arrive at Hoover Dam, your driver will explain the exhibits and direct you to the visitor’s center for your government-guided interior tour of Hoover Dam. You will spend approximately 2 hours at the dam.

Then continue to Lake Mead, located less than an hour from Las Vegas. Your visit offers you the opportunity to take a break from the neon jungle of Las Vegas and enjoy a wonderful cruise aboard the Desert Princess!

This authentic paddlewheel boat was built especially to cruise the blue waters of Lake Mead. Cruise in climate-controlled comfort on 1 of the 2 enclosed decks or feel the wind in your hair and the desert sun on your face up top on the open promenade deck.

A light lunch (sandwich, chips, fruit, and a drink) will be served to you while you are on the boat. This is a great activity for anyone looking to do something different on this trip to Las Vegas.

Your professional guide will provide narration on this round-trip tour from Las Vegas while you enjoy a ride on board a luxury motor coach with airline-style reclining seats, foot rests, on-board restroom, air conditioning, and large vista view windows so you are sure not to miss a thing.
