Las Vegas itself is an adventure and this tour is a great way to enhance your Vegas vacation. This small-group tour is designed to maximize your time! This Hoover Dam Expedition tour combines the best that the dam has to offer and you'll have fun and learn a lot while you're visiting.
    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 government built historic 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. Here you will enjoy a hearty sit-down breakfast at a local diner (included in tour price).

    After breakfast, continue onto Hoover Dam, making a few scenic stops along the way. Arriving at Hoover Dam you will be guided through the visitors center 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 generators on the Bureau of Reclamation Power Plant Tour where you will travel down 500 feet and maybe have water drip on your head! It's not leaking - it's called seeping and is a natural occurrence of all rocks near rivers. The 17 generators at Hoover Dam power several western states. 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!
