Itinerary
Begin your day with pickup in a luxury coach from the lobby of your hotel, and a relaxing ride to Hoover Dam.

At the dam, the 2-hour tour shows you several areas of one of the country’s greatest feats of engineering. Watch a video, explore exhibits, and ride an elevator deep into a tunnel to check out the power plant’s Nevada wing.

After, ride to Lake Mead Marina, where you’ll board a paddle-wheel steamboat for scenic views and a deli-style lunch.

Reboard the luxury coach for the ride back to Las Vegas, stopping at the Ethel M Chocolate Factory for a sweet treat before drop-off at your hotel. The tour may include a bonus photo stop at the iconic "Welcome to Las Vegas" sign if time allows.
