Tour Description

Experience Hoover Dam from two dramatic yet different perspectives: down in its depths to up in the air! Your experience begins with shuttle service from your Las Vegas Strip or Downtown Las Vegas hotel to our bus depot. After a brief pre-tour orientation, you’ll board your deluxe touring motor coach for historic Boulder City and Hoover Dam.

Along the way, your driver/guide will point out scenic and cultural highlights. Upon arrival at Hoover Dam, a representative of the Bureau of Reclamation will accompany you on your V.I.P. Discovery tour that covers the lower level of the dam.

Walking across the top of the dam, you can truly be in two places at once, simultaneously standing in Arizona and Nevada. Down in the Generator Room, you’ll appreciate that the design of this stately structure was truly ahead of its time, not only mechanically, but aesthetically. A monument to ingenuity, perseverance and bravery, the construction of Hoover Dam brought thousands of families to this arid and sometimes hostile part of the U.S. in hopes of escaping the economic hardship of the Great Depression. You’ll see and hear their stories in the movie room, with a short informative video presentation. You’ll also have some unstructured time to explore the Visitor’s Center and shop for souvenirs of your tour.

Next it’s on to the Papillon heliport where you’ll board a state of the art touring helicopter to enjoy a bird’s eye view of Hoover Dam. Here your appreciation for the magnitude and majesty of the dam will come full circle. The approximate flight time is 6 minutes round-trip with narration. When your flight is complete, you will be taken to the Hoover Dam Lodge to enjoy a meal before being transported back to your Las Vegas hotel.
