When planning a Las Vegas vacation, make sure to book a trip to the must-see Hoover Dam. The impressive dam was built during the Depression by thousands of men in less than five years. Its purpose is to tame the Colorado River. Pictures don’t really do it justice. In order to fully appreciate the massive Hoover Dam, you need to see it in person!
There are numerous tours to choose from to suit your needs. All tours are fully narrated, include free hotel pickup and drop-off, and are family friendly. The Hoover Dam Express Tour is approximately 5 hours long and provides approximately 2 hours of free time at the Dam. This time can be spent on a two hour guided discovery tour, visiting the exhibit gallery, penstock viewing platform, visitor center, and more. The Hoover Dam Deluxe Tour is approximately 9 hours and includes a buffet lunch at Railroad Pass followed by a visit to the Ethel M Chocolate factory and botanical gardens. Book a spot on the 9 hour Hoover Dam Deluxe Tour and Lake Mead Cruise to make the most of your day off of the strip. This tour includes the opportunity to include a 90 minute cruise on the Desert Princess paddle boat to enjoy the experience of boating on the largest man-made lake in the U.S. A picnic style meal is served aboard the boat.
No matter which tour you select, all tours offer phenomenal views of Hoover Dam, Lake Mead, the colorful Arizona Paint Pots, and the volcanic rocks of Black Mountain. Your trip to Las Vegas isn’t complete without a visit to the Hoover Dam! Click here to purchase tour tickets today!
