Personally-Guided Hoover Dam Expedition Tour

    What to Expect
    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 historic government built 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. In Boulder City we will enjoy a hearty sit-down breakfast at a local diner (included in tour price).

    After breakfast, continue onto Hoover Dam, making two scenic stops along the way. Arriving at Hoover Dam you will be guided through the visitors centre 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 giant generators on the Bureau of Reclamation Power Plant Tour where you will travel down over 500 feet and maybe have water drip on your head! NO It's not leaking - it's called seeping and is a natural occurrence of all rocks near rivers. As you arrive at the base of Hoover Dam you will be able to marvel at the  generators within the power station. 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!

    Going to Las Vegas can be overwhelming, so much to do and to see. This time around we wanted to do something different, something we hadn't done. A very nice woman at one of the Hotels (Kathy) told us about this tour company. Small, private, and not pricey. We decided to take
