This 7.5-hour tour of the Hoover Dam starts with a morning pickup from your Las Vegas hotel before 10a.m. On your way to Boulder City, your first stop lasts about 10 to 15 minutes at the famous Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas sign. Snap pictures, and then get back in your luxury Mercedes van for the ride to Hoover Dam.
When you first arrive, spend some time exploring the Theater Level on your own. Next, take the guided Discovery Tour. This is where you’ll get to travel by elevator 500 feet (46.4 meters) down into the walls of the Black Canyon to walk through a 250-foot-long (76-meter-long) tunnel for views of the Nevada side of the dam. Watch as the water flows from the dam into the Colorado River below. Before you leave, visit the Exhibit Gallery, and learn a little more about the dam, its history, and its future.
On the way home, make a pit stop in Henderson to go on a self-guided tour of the Ethel M Chocolate Factory grounds and its botanical gardens. Afterward, hop back into your van for the 45-minute ride back to your Las Vegas hotel.
