The Hoover Dam by Luxury SUV and Colorado River Float offers ample time for exploring this National Historic Landmark and engineering wonder of the world. See live presentations, a fascinating film on the Dam's construction and history, exhibit gallery, observation deck, and venture down to the observation room in the power plant to view the massive generators.

You'll also encounter dramatic views of both the Colorado River and Lake Mead, the largest man-made body of water in the Western Hemisphere. From the Lake Mead Overlook, you're transported to the Colorado River by van on the Lower Portal Road, where construction crews traveled each day. You'll see the original gauging station used to measure water level and flow, and dynamite storage bunkers used during construction.

Then, a guided Colorado River float tour by raft offers you close-up views few people have ever seen of Hoover Dam, mighty power plants, and Black Canyon. You'll also learn historical facts and get an astounding view of the Hoover Dam Bypass project and construction of the nearly 2,000-foot-long bridge spanning over 900 feet above the river. This tour offers absolutely the best photo opportunity of the Hoover Dam and Colorado River!

Please note: due to low water levels at the Hoover Dam, this tour will not be available from October 30, 2012 to November 1, 2012.

We had an amazing time. The sights along our trip were amazing, along with all the sites within the Dam. Our guide seemed a little tired and not really into sharing his day with us, but he ok. He answered questions when asked and occasionally gave some useful info. The guide on our raft was good. He was comical and kept us entertained while giving us information about the Dam. I enjoyed the river raft time the best. We were a little rushed to get back to our main guide, didn't have a lot of time to shop at the end, but we got back to our pink jeep and was on our way. The tipping requirements for the guide were a little high to our liking, especially since he wasn't the best of guides. All in all this is a great tour and worth taking.

From the start of our trip with the tour operators, our guide Pam made this an informative, fun and worthwhile trip. A ride to the Hoover Dam was comfortable and fun. Pam definitely knows Her stuff! We started off with our boat ride on the Colorado River and the guide again was funny and informative, an excellent ride. Amazing photos to be taken. We then headed up to the Dam and did the tour inside. So glad we did this tour, you cannot explain the size of the generators, you just need to see them ! Excellent tour, full of facts and interesting insight into how it was built. Once the tour finished, you were given ample time to take photos and walk about the top of the Dam. You given snacks and plenty of bottled water. Highly recommended this tour.
