Marvel at the mind-boggling feat of construction that created these towering concrete walls. Tour the visitor center and learn about the immense challenges faced by the dam's designers. Visit strategic viewpoints overlooking the dam, and see the blue waters of lovely Lake Mead. It is the largest man-made lake and reservoir in the US and a life-line to the settlements of the southwest. Travel further into the desert and see magnificent bighorn sheep in their native habitat.

Itinerary

  • You will be picked up from your Las Vegas hotel in a luxury air-conditioned coach for your Hoover Dam and Boulder City Tour, by your English-speaking driver/ guide.

    The first stop on your tour, just half-an-hour from Vegas, will be the massive Hoover Dam in the Black Canyon of the Colorado River. Towering 725 feet above the River, it is a spectacular feat of engineering. Rated as one of the man-made wonders of the world, it is noteworthy not only for its immense size and complex design but also for the huge technical challenges that were overcome during construction. Building of the dam transformed the American southwest.

    You will spend up to two hours at the dam. In this time, you can take the 'Discovery Tour' of the visitor center and the interior of the dam. You can enjoy a deli-style picnic lunch; and you will be guided to points where you can clearly see the dam and Lake Mead, the world's largest man-made lake.

    Next, your driver/guide will take you to a park where you can see the splendid bighorn sheep, native to these desert lands, grazing in large numbers. These sheep came originally from Siberia, over the Bering land bridge. Their horns can weigh up to 30 pounds.

    Before returning to Las Vegas, you will drive through Boulder City, a town that would not exist were it not for the Hoover Dam. Your driver will tell you the story of the city and why it was built.

    At the end of an interesting and enjoyable trip, you will be dropped back at your hotel in Las Vegas.
