There is a bit of a step getting onto the raft. there are not designated seats on the raft. We don't pickup in Las Vegas for the Postcard Tour. You would drive to our beginning spot.

We would meet you in a designated spot and then drive you back to your car after. You could then drive yourself to the Dam either before or after the tour. There is no access to the Dam from our tour.
