Visit the impressive Hoover Dam, cruise over Lake Mead, and explore a chocolate factory on this guided bus tour. You’ll leave Las Vegas in a comfortable luxury motorcoach with reclining seats, a restroom, air conditioning, large windows, and a professional driver who will provide interesting descriptions of the territory along the way. After you arrive, you’ll go on a VIP tour inside the Dam by a government guide, giving you the chance to visit every inch of this marvel.
The Hoover Dam was one of the largest and most successful government projects of the 1930s. It’s an engineering masterpiece and was completed on time and under budget. The Dam also created Lake Mead, the largest man-made lake in the Western Hemisphere.
You’ll be able to get on board the Desert Princess, an authentic paddle wheel boat especially built to cruise the Lake. It’s a great chance to see the Dam from a unique angle and you’ll be able to feel the wind in your hair while enjoying the cool blue water. While you enjoy this relaxing break from the lights and glamor of Las Vegas, you’ll be treated to light lunch of a sandwich, chips, fruit, and a drink.
Your trip will also include a self-guided tour at Ethel M’s Chocolate Factory, a producer of mouth-watering gourmet chocolate. The Factory has a botanical cactus garden which you can explore at your leisure. The garden contains over 300 different cactus and succulent species, as well as an all-natural waste water treatment facility, designed to transform all of the Factory’s waste water into clean water for the gardens. It’s a day full of engineering marvels that you simply must see!
