Personally-Guided Hoover Dam Expedition Tour
Enjoy an educational and entertaining trip to Hoover Dam on this guided, 6-hour, small-group sightseeing adventure from Las Vegas. Travel through Boulder City and the Lake Mead National Recreation Area en route to Hoover Dam. Upon arrival, stop at the Visitor Center and take a look at the dam’s generators on a Power Plant tour. Then enjoy an informative 10-minute movie and head to the top of the dam. Along the way, learn about the fascinating history, with an abundance of staggering facts. Breakfast and a hotel pickup/drop-off are included.
What to Expect

This small-group Hoover Dam Expedition Tour is a tour that takes you back in time to one of the man-made Wonders of the Modern World. Leaving Las Vegas behind, you will travel through the historic government built town of Boulder City (created for the workers of the dam) and on to the Lake Mead National Recreation Area, home to the largest man-made body of water in the Western Hemisphere. In Boulder City we will enjoy a hearty sit-down breakfast at a local diner (included in tour price).

After breakfast, continue onto Hoover Dam, making two scenic stops along the way. Arriving at Hoover Dam you will be guided through the visitors centre by one of the Bureau of Reclamation government guides. Here, you can view exhibits from the period and discover the history of Hoover Dam. Take a seat and enjoy a 10 minute movie presentation on the construction of what was originally known as "Boulder" Dam.

Then it's off to view the giant generators on the Bureau of Reclamation Power Plant Tour where you will travel down over 500 feet and maybe have water drip on your head! NO It's not leaking - it's called seeping and is a natural occurrence of all rocks near rivers. As you arrive at the base of Hoover Dam you will be able to marvel at the  generators within the power station. They must be seen to be believed!

After the Government tour, its time to explore the top of Hoover Dam at your leisure. Take photos, read plaques and step into two states at once!
