Small-Group Hoover Dam VIP Tour from Las Vegas
From $88.99
Enjoy an educational and entertaining trip to Hoover Dam on this guided, 5-hour, small-group sightseeing adventure from Las Vegas. Visit the Hoover Dam Visitor Center and Generator Room, enjoy an informational movie and check out the view from the top of the dam and Lake Mead. Learn about the history of Hoover Dam, with an abundance of staggering facts. On the return trip to Las Vegas, make a short visit to a local park where herds of bighorn sheep typically graze. All entrance fees, snacks and bottled water are included.
What to Expect
Your small-group tour starts with pick up from your Las Vegas Strip or downtown hotel at approximately 8am. Head out with your certified interpretive guide on a tour that includes the dam's Visitor Center with its fascinating Hoover Dam movie and historical displays. In addition, the tour takes you in an elevator down over 500 ft. to the generator room located on the Nevada side of the dam.

Located in Black Canyon on the Colorado River, the Hoover Dam was once the largest dam in the world. It is an outstanding achievement, noteworthy not only for its enormous dimensions, complex design and intricate construction, but also for its illustration of mans outstanding ability to overcome the desert's summer sun, the vagaries of a treacherous river and the extreme hazards of great heights on the chasm's sheer walls. The building of the dam also created Lake Mead, North America's largest man-made reservoir.

Before returning to Las Vegas, enjoy a stop at a local park where herds of Big Horn Sheep often come down from the surrounding mountains (seasonal) to graze on the sweet grass.

As part of your tour, you will receive a complimentary guide on the geology and history of the dam, Native American history, local flora and fauna information and many other interesting tidbits!
