Due to high winds we did not get to do Lake Mead but Gray Line gave us a really good alternative to visit the Hoover Dam power plant.

Picked up right on time (downtown Las Vegas) went to main terminal and the tour started from there, 1st stop was a chocolate factory with a couple samples, then on to the Mead Lake cruise which was beautiful and included a nice lunch, then on to the Hoover Dam which was also a lot of fun, started with a short video and then the tour. Then back to Vegas where downtown was the 1st drop off which I thought was great. (My last Gray Line trip (Grand Canyon) I was picked up 1st (downtown) and dropped off last which added about 3 extra hours to my trip which I didn't expect or appreciate.)
