Hoover Dam VIP Tour
This wonderful Hoover Dam experience includes a guided tour of the exterior of the incredible structure. The Discovery Tour gives you access to locations overlooking Lake Mead, the world’s largest man-made lake. You’ll also be able to take pictures of the dam and the Mike O’ Callaghan — Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge which crosses over the Colorado River from photo-op view points on the visitor center’s outdoor patio / balcony. Hoover Dam is located in Black Canyon on the Colorado River, it is the highest structure of its kind in the world. It’s an outstanding achievement, noteworthy not only for its enormous dimensions, complex design and intricate construction, but also for its illustration of man’s outstanding ability to overcome the desert’s summer sun, the vagaries of a treacherous river, and the extreme hazards of the great heights of the canyon’s sheer walls. You have ample time for breathtaking views of the Top of the Dam, Lake Mead, one of the world’s largest man-made lakes and awesome views of the Colorado River Gorge from the Bridge Walkway, 900’ above the river. From the eastern edge of the gorge in Arizona you have fabulous views of the dam and river. In addition, we walk across the top of the Dam into Arizona where there are wonderful photo ops of the Mike O’Callaghan-Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge. As a bonus we tour the old main street of Boulder City and see historical buildings and markers as well as stop at a local park where herds of Big Horn Sheep often come down from the surrounding mountains to gather and graze on the sweet grass. Before returning to Las Vegas you will be driven through Boulder City and see the historic buildings and markers. To ensure the most comfortable experience for the customer, this tour uses the following vehicles: SUVs for seven passengers, custom 11-passenger “T” Class Super Vans or 14-passenger VIP Mini Coaches.
