Hoover Dam has to be ranked as one the greatest feats of American engineering. Though you have no doubt seen many pictures and video of the Hoover Dam, nothing compares to standing on its wall to see its mighty strength in controlling the Colorado River.
Almost equally as impressive as the dam is the new bypass bridge constructed to divert heavy interstate traffic away from the dam. Massive vertical concrete towers and an arch that spans the canyon make this another sight to behold, backdropped by the Hoover Dam.
Along this drive we also call in on the community of Boulder City which was thought was going to become what Las Vegas is today. We have the option to visit the Clark County Heritage Museum, one of best value and lesser known attractions. And finally we drive back to the Strip along the base of Black Mountain with views to the length of the Strip and stories about when the Mob ran Las Vegas.
This drive takes 1/2 to full day depending on how many stops you choose to make.

The West Rim of the Grand Canyon is just 3 hours driving time from Las Vegas. At the West Rim you can walk out on the famous Glass Sky Walk, perched 4000 vertical feet above the Grand Canyon floor for the most panoramic views. There are also a number of activities to participate that are included in your admission while visiting the Hualapai Nation. Others like horseback riding and scenic helicopter rides can be added.
Our tour route takes us to Hoover Dam along the way. It's a great day to combine both of these fantastic attractions. It's best to try and get an early start to fit everything in.
GyPSy Guide will provide commentary all the way to the Grand Canyon, and then all different stories to keep you entertained for the drive back to Las Vegas. Allow a full day for this drive.

This tour has everything in a day or less! Natural beauty at Red Rock Canyon, exposes ancient rock that has been push and thrust into the sky by the forces of the earth's plates and rocks that are so red its hard to believe they are real.
But on this drive we also visit 5 other great sites that offer a surprising variety of experiences. Our tour includes a good old fashioned western town, where sometimes a gun fight might break out in the street or a yocal might try and round you up for a posse.
We also visit Las Vegas' favourite premium outlet mall to search out some bargains. And finally our tour ends at the place where Las Vegas began, Downtown Las Vegas home of the Golden Nugget, the Fremont St Experience and its overhead light show and many more names you will recognize.
Stories on this tour include tips on how to improve your odds in the casinos. The drive finishes back on the Strip.

This is a great full day that combines the man-made marvel of engineering that is the Hoover Dam and the concrete arch bypass bridge that spans across the canyon. We see all of the locations from the Hoover Dam and then move on to the Red Rock Canyon portion of the tour.
That second half of the drive takes us on the loop drive around the protected lands of Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area and its bright red rocks. Then we make our way back towards the Strip with an opportunity for some bargain hunting at the Premium Outlet Mall. And finally a visit to Fremont St and the original Downtown Las Vegas — home of the Golden Nugget, Binions and much more.
This drive can be completed comfortably in a full day. Its suggested to begin the drive by leaving the Strip before midday. The tour finishes at Downtown Las Vegas which is best enjoyed in the evening.
