Join us at the Hoover Dam as we show you what has been known as one of the engineering wonders of the world: Hoover Dam is also known as Boulder Dam. When completed in 1935, it was both the world’s largest electric power-producing facility between 1938 and 1948 and the world’s largest concrete structure. It is currently the world’s 34th largest hydroelectric generating station. During the tour, you will be able to view the seventeen turbine generators that generate a maximum of 2,074 megawatts of hydroelectric power.
You will also be given the opportunity to walk on the amazing Mike O’Callahan/Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge for a spectacular view of the Hoover Dam nearly 1000 feet above the Colorado River.
Upon arrival at the Hoover Dam, you will be driven across the Dam to a fabulous Arizona lookout on the other side to enjoy a spectacular view of the entire Hoover Dam complex. Sweetours will also show you the Arizona spillway. (This is not the hard hat tour.)
