Meet your driver at select Las Vegas hotels and take in views of the Mojave Desert on the drive to the Hoover Dam.

When you get to the Hoover Dam, get perspectives on the dam from both the Arizona and Nevada sides of the Colorado River, and have your camera ready as you cross the Mike O’Callaghan-Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge.

Start with a guided tour of the dam interior, with live presentations and a film about the history and construction of the Hoover Dam. See the exhibit gallery and the observation deck, and then drop down into the observation room to watch the dam’s powerful generators in action.

Finally, begin the scenic trip back to Las Vegas, where this tour concludes with drop-off at your original departure point.
