Hoover Dam Tour With Lake Mead Cruise

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Take a tour of the mighty Hoover Dam, where you'll explore the inside of the dam, walk through a 250-foot-long tunnel and view the 650-foot-long Nevada wing of the power plant. You’ll also enjoy a 90-minute cruise, including lunch, aboard a paddle wheeler on Lake Mead.
  • Save time by taking a combination tour of Hoover Dam and Lake Mead 
  • Included transportation means you don’t need to drive or rent a car 
  • Get an in-depth understanding of Hoover Dam’s impressive engineering 
  • Lake Mead cruise lets you enjoy views and photo ops while eating lunch 
  • Hassle-free hotel pickup and drop-off at Las Vegas hotels
What to Expect
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.

The boat ride was lovely. The food was nothing special, but decent (subs & chips). Tour of the dam was educational. Overall a nice way to spend a day.

You need to tell them 24 hours in advance of where you are staying and they will give a time for your pick up. I think they do most hotels on and around the Las Vegas strip.
