Hike the Hoover Dam & its Surroundings
This is a tour for the traveler who wants a different type of experience. Sometimes to get the great views, you have to do a little hiking!
We will travel 35 miles Southeast to Lake Mead & go for a hike on the Historic Railroad Trail to visit two railroad tunnels used during construction of the Dam. Then, we will travel to Hoover Dam & into Arizona for a walking tour of the top of the Dam & its surroundings. Be sure to stand on the state line so you can be in 2 places at once! Finally, we will climb to the top of the Mike O'Callaghan-Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge to take in amazing views from almost 900 ft above the Colorado River. Epic views & a dam good time awaits!

My husband and I took this tour as part of a quick get away to Las Vegas, and I am so glad we did. Such a fantastic tour! This tour includes a lot of walking, and some of the most beautiful scenery I have ever seen. Our guide, Sean was prompt, energetic, and knowledgeable, a safe driver, truly wanted to make sure we had a time to remember. We will request him again when we travel west in the future. Do yourself a favor.. get off the strip to see some amazing sites!
