Lake Mead Tour Part 1 - Boulder City Airport

To begin, here is a description of another actual tour offered by a local tour operator:

The first tour I have found picks you up from your Las Vegas hotel in a luxury motor coach which will take you to

the Hoover Dam where you will be introduced to the Discovery Tour hosted by the Department of the Interior.

The tour involves a video presentation, exploration of the Hoover Dam Power Plant Generators and a viewing

from the Penstock Viewing Platform. After the tour you can freely explore the dam then head off to the Lake

Mead Marina to board a steamboat for a 90-minute Lake Mead cruise. I'll provide a link to a full page

description and itinerary of this and other Grand Canyon tours soon.
