Help me find a GC tour that...

Wife and I will be in Vegas During late December with 2 grandgirls (13 & 14 years old). I plan on taking a GC tour with the grandgirls. What I am looking for is a airplane flight from Vegas that will go over the Hoover Dam on the way to the South Rim. Once at the GC we would take a guided senic bus tour before deparing back on airplane. The tours I see do not go over/by the Hoover Dam on the way to the South Rim. Only if you go to West Rim do they go over Hoover Dam. If there is one that goes over the Hoover Dam please be as specific as and possible with one so I can check it out. Thanks for any help./info!

Actually most air tours from LV to GCNP SR fly over Hoover Dam and Lake Mead. Check Scenic Airlines "Grand Canyon Deluxe" Tour. It offers what you are looking for.

You should also consider doing a day trip to see the Hoover Dam as well as the new bridge that goes over it whilst in Las Vegas...

Scenic flies out of the Boulder City Municipal Airport, which is right near the Hoover Dam, so they definitely fly over it 'cause it's kinda hard not to :) Here's a video describing their most popular Las Vegas Grand Canyon South Rim air/ground tour ->: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V402Vlo9Hsg This tour can also be upgraded to include a 30-minute helicopter overflight upon arrival at the South Rim.
