To begin this experience, you’ll be picked up from your hotel aboard a comfortable air-conditioned coach bus. The bus is equipped with large vista windows so you’ll get a glance of your surroundings during the ride. As you travel towards the Hoover Dam, your expert guide will offer informative commentary about Las Vegas. A photo stop at the historic Welcome to Las Vegas sign will also be made.
As you arrive at the Hoover Dam, professional guides will take you on a wonderful and informative tour through the bottom of the dam. You’ll view a video about the construction of this Man-Made Wonder of the World and its historical significance. Then after exiting the theater, you’ll join a brief line to enter the Hoover Dam Power Plant.
From here, a 70-second elevator ride takes you 530-feet down through the rock wall of Black Canyon where you’ll begin a 30-minute guided tour. As you exit the elevator, you’ll enter a tunnel drilled in the 1930s and take a short walk to the Penstock Viewing Platform.
This platform is located at the top of one of the huge 30-foot-diameter pipes that can transport nearly 90,000 gallons of water each second from Lake Mead, to the dam's hydroelectric generators. During the tour you’ll also watch an animated display, which will help you understand the complexity of the construction of the dam and how it currently operates.
On this experience you’ll also visit the Nevada Power Plant balcony, which allows for the best panoramic views of the 650-foot-long Nevada wing of the power plant and eight of the dam's 17 generators. Make sure to look down as you stand on top of the beautiful and intricate floor designs of the balcony. After this, enjoy some time to explore and see the Hoover Dam on your own.
Then, hop back on the bus and travel towards the newly redesigned Hoover Dam Lodge. While here, delight on a delicious meal and explore the area. After lunch you’ll make another stop at Ethel M's Chocolate Factory for a self-guided tour and a complimentary sampling of chocolate, before being dropped off at your hotel.
