Before leaving Eagle Point, you will have the chance to talk out over the Grand Canyon Sky Walk, a glass and steel walkway that stretches 70 feet away from the rim of the Grand Canyon and gives you a dizzying view of the canyon walls and floor 4,000 feet below you.
Visit one of the most breathtaking viewpoints in the Grand Canyon at Guano Point, were you will be able to get out of your Tour Trekker and take panoramic photos and peer over the edge to see the historic bat cave that housed 100,000 tons of guano at one point. You will drive by Lake Mead, the largest reservoir in the US and formed by the Hoover Dam, creating a body of water that stretches 112 miles when at maximum water capacity. You will start the Hoover Dam portion of your excursion by touring the Hoover Dam Power Plant and learning about the Dam's history and operations, as well as showing you the enormity of the Dam and its operational features through live, audio, and film presentations and exhibits. Step out onto the observation tower and look into the waters of the Colorado River that rests below you.
