The elevator to the generator room was broken this day, so we didn't get to go down, but our fantastic driver, Derek, made up for it my taking us to other attractions in the area. Wonderful customer service!
The day begins with pickup from your Downtown Las Vegas or Vegas Strip hotel. Sit back and listen to interesting facts and information about the modern marvel you are about to visit.
Once at Hoover Dam, meet up with a certified guide, who will lead you through awe-inspiring underground caverns and into the dam’s control room with its giant generators. Learn how the dam generates power for much of the Southwest and why it is considered one of the Industrial Wonders of the World.
On the return trip, stop for a free, self-guided tour of the Ethel M Chocolate Factory, where you can see how the famous confections are made and get a free sample. If time permits, take a quick stroll through the factory’s storied cactus gardens—horticulture buffs will love it.
The tour ends with drop-off at your hotel back in Vegas.
Skip the rental car and relax in the comfort of a scenic tour bus on this half-day outing to Hoover Dam. See the inner workings of the control room and take a tour through the underground caverns. On the return trip, stop by a chocolate factory for free samples. Pickup and drop-off on the Vegas Strip or in Downtown Las Vegas is included.
