What You Can Expect

Hoover Dam Tour With Lake Mead Cruise

Hoover Dam

Following morning pickup at your Las Vegas hotel, board a luxury motor coach and head for the Hoover Dam.

Upon arrival, embark on the Discovery Tour, which includes an exploration of several areas and lasts about 2 hours. In the Exhibit Gallery, view displays on the region’s natural history and the operational history of the dam. Wander through murals, maps and displays on the Theatre Level that document the history of the Hoover Dam. Watch 'How the West was Won', a short video that details the Bureau of Reclamation’s part in growing food and taming the rivers and the desert. Ride an elevator 500 feet (152 meters) down into the Black Canyon’s walls and walk through the 250-foot (76-meter) tunnel drilled out of rock. Visit the 8 generators in the Nevada wing of the power plant. 

Leave the dam and continue to Lake Mead Marina. Board the Desert Princess, a paddle-wheel steamboat and your chariot for the 90-minute tour of Lake Mead. Enjoy views of the dam from this aquatic vantage point as you dig in to a deli-style lunch. 

At the conclusion of your lake outing, climb back aboard the motor coach and head back to your Vegas hotel. If time allows, a stop at the 'Welcome to Las Vegas' sign for a photo op will be made.

A brilliant day out taking in the whole Hoover Dam experience. I would have liked longer at the dam as there was so much to look at but we had to get down to the lake for our cruise on the paddle steamer. Lunch was more than adequate with a relaxing cruise that took you right up to the dam itself. Highly recommended.

Tour begins with hotel pick up in a nice A/C charter bus. The driver was friendly and so knowledgable about Las Vegas. A quick photo stop was made at the famous Las Vegas welcome sign and then we were on to the Dam for what turned out to be a very informative day. Our tour included the power plant beneath the dam, views of the water intake areas and the new by-pass bridge and finally a paddle-boat lunch cruise on Lake Mead where we were able to see the back side of the dam and the beautiful rock cliffs surrounding the dam. This is an all-day tour we left the hotel before 9:00 and returned after 5:00 but such a nice way to see the sights.
