Embark on a captivating journey from the bustling streets of Las Vegas to the mysterious and historic landscapes that lie just beyond.

Delve into the history of this era at the hotel’s on-site museum, which showcases artifacts and stories of the dam's construction, offering a deep dive into the lives of those who shaped this landscape. The journey continues to the Hoover Dam itself, where you'll marvel at this triumph of human ingenuity. Standing atop the dam, gaze out over the vast Lake Mead and the Colorado River, as you learn about the dam's construction and its transformative impact on the region. Conclude your tour at the visually stunning Seven Magic Mountains, an art installation that juxtaposes the Mojave's muted tones with bursts of vibrant, stacked boulders. This modern artistic marvel offers a perfect photo opportunity and a chance to reflect on the blend of natural and man-made beauty. Throughout your tour, enjoy the comfort of air-conditioned transport and complimentary water to keep you refreshed. While lunch isn't provided, we will make stops where you can pick up a bite to eat.
