Visit the famous Hoover Dam from the air and wander through a chocolate factory on this guided tour. You’ll leave Las Vegas on board a comfortable luxury motorcoach with reclining seats, a restroom, air conditioning, large windows, and a professional driver who will provide descriptions along the way. After you arrive, you’ll be taken on a VIP tour inside the Dam by a government guide. This special tour will show you the inner workings of the Dam as well as give you access to the museum.
The Hoover Dam was one of the largest and most successful government projects of the 1930s. It’s an engineering marvel and was finished on time and under budget. The Dam also led to the creation of Lake Mead, which is the largest man-made lake in the Western Hemisphere. It’s worth a visit to this modern structure, an amazing part of American history.
If explore the deepest darkest parts of the Dam isn’t enough for you, this tour will also take you up into the sky aboard a EC-130 helicopter! Considered the limousine of flight, you’ll hover around the Dam and Lake for 15 minutes, giving you more than enough time to enjoy breathtaking views of this stellar area.
Your trip will also include a deli-style lunch as well as a self-guided tour at Ethel M’s Chocolate Factory, a producer of mouth-watering gourmet chocolate. The Factory also contains a botanical cactus garden which you are free to explore at your leisure. Aside from over 300 different cactus and succulent species, the garden contains an all-natural waste water treatment facility, designed to transform all of the Factory’s wastewater into clean water for the gardens. It’s a day full of engineering marvels that you simply must see!
