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.

Comfortable Modern Bus, Great Driver/Guide

Very interesting

Our trip to the Hoover Dam was very informative. Our driver Mark was very good even though the poor guy was forced by his management to do an all-day tour when he was initially just picking up the guests and transferring us to another driver....More

One too many stops

Although the driver was doing as told, I'm sure, we would have enjoyed the trip more if we did not make a stop at the chocolate shop on the way back to Las Vegas.More
