Hoover Dam Tour With Lake Mead Cruise
From US$109.99
Low Price Guarantee
Visit both the Hoover Dam and Lake Mead in a single tour, without having to drive or rent a car. Included is your admission ticket to the dam’s Nevada Wing and Visitors Center, where you’ll learn about its history and engineering. Then take a relaxing steamboat lunch cruise on Lake Mead, and stop for sweets at the Ethel M Chocolate Factory. Hotel pickup and drop-off from Las Vegas are provided.
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.

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.
