What You Can Expect
Your tour includes a stop at the Lake Mead Visitors Center for a break, and if the weather is nice enough, you can bike down to Lake Mead for a quick dip. Then you'll head back to the trailhead to enter the tunnels, where trains once transported concrete to the Hoover Dam.
Travel through no less than 5 tunnels with views of Lake Mead and continue on the trail toward the Hoover Dam. Here, you'll have plenty of time to explore the Visitor's Center, take the Discovery Tour (USD 11.00, payable at the Hoover Dam) and admire the Colorado River.
Enjoy a picnic lunch before packing up the bikes and gear and head back to Las Vegas!
Our guide, Mac provided us with a superb tour! We were picked up at our hotel right on time, then delivered to the shop where we were briefed and fitted for gloves and helmets. At the trail head we were fully fitted for the bikes and given an overview of what to expect on the tour. Mac carried a (large) backpack with water, first aid gear, parts and snacks. He maintained a running commentary on points of interest and was obviously well versed on not only the history of the area we were traversing but on plants and animals we encountered as well. I cannot recall a single question that Mac wasn't able to answer to our satisfaction. My wife and I would both rate this tour as being thoroughly excellent. The equipment was great, the scenery was beautiful and the ride was never beyond our capabilities. This was a totally new experience for both of us as neither of us had previously been in the desert nor had we ever visited Hoover Dam. The Dam tour was sort of separate as Mac didn't accompany us with the Dam having it's own guides. The picnic lunch was very good. We thoroughly enjoyed this tour but honestly, having Mac as our guide was the high point of the trip. Kind, intelligent, warm and well informed, his skill and enthusiasm were what pulled everything together. Well done to all involved! Thank you, Mac!
This was a superb trip (except for one bit) it was just our family, three of us and Daniel our guide. Right from the start with being contacted on when we were to be picked up and what food we would like right to the end it was so well organised.
It was an early start but as it got so hot in the afternoon I can understand that. We rode from Boulder through the storm drains, cycle paths and the construction tunnels. all the way Daniel pointed out things of interest and explained the area.
He kept a real good eye on us and if one of us dropped back he would drop back as well and check we were ok. He also carried the cold water which was really needed.
The one down point was that with 200 yards to go I came of (embarasing as Im the moutaIn biker) completly my fault I cut my arm a little but Daniel was superb had all the medical equipment and was so professional.
all in all this was brilliant and really can not stress how well organised and freindly Awesome adventures are.
If we go again to Vegas I would do this again and recomend it.
