Visit both the Hoover Dam and Lake Mead in a single tour, without having to drive or rent a car. Included is your admission ticket to the dam’s Nevada Wing and Visitors Center, where you’ll learn about its history and engineering. Then take a relaxing steamboat lunch cruise on Lake Mead, and stop for sweets at the Ethel M Chocolate Factory. Hotel pickup and drop-off from Las Vegas are provided.
  • Save time by taking a combination tour of Hoover Dam and Lake Mead 
  • Included transportation means you don’t need to drive or rent a car 
  • Get an in-depth understanding of Hoover Dam’s impressive engineering

What to Expect
Begin your day with pickup in a luxury coach from the lobby of your hotel, and a relaxing ride to Hoover Dam. At the dam, the 2-hour tour shows you several areas of one of the country’s greatest feats of engineering. Watch a video, explore exhibits, and ride an elevator deep into a tunnel to check out the power plant’s Nevada wing. After, ride to Lake Mead Marina, where you’ll board a paddle-wheel steamboat for scenic views and a deli-style lunch. Reboard the luxury coach for the ride back to Las Vegas, stopping at the Ethel M Chocolate Factory for a sweet treat before drop-off at your hotel. The tour may include a bonus photo stop at the iconic "Welcome to Las Vegas" sign if time allows.

Dear Ms, Thank you for being a Gray Line customer and leaving us feedback. We are sorry that you did not enjoy your day with us more. Lately, the Hoover Dam has been experiencing difficulties with their brand new multi-million dollar tourism elevators which has disrupted the sightseeing experience. On some days, they know if advance and give us a heads up and on other days we only find out they are having issues upon arrival. We are very sorry that this impacted your day. At Gray Line we look forward to the Hoover Dam successfully navigating the teething issues they are having with their new elevators so that the experience can return to the smooth and awesome experience of the past. Sincerely, Zachary
