Just weeks after launching its brand-new Hoover Dam Helicopter Tour, Papillon Airways, Inc. has incorporated ground tours into the experience.

Commonly known as one of the top 10 construction achievements of the 20th century, the Hoover Dam still attracts more than 1 million visitors a year, nearly 70 years after its creation. Now, during Papillon’s Hoover Dam Helilcopter Tour, guests will be taken by shuttle to experience an interior tour of the Hoover Dam, showcasing the history of the power plant.

In addition, the helicopter portion of the tour includes a low-level air tour of the historic monument inside a deluxe EC-130 Eco-Star helicopter. Guests will view this engineering marvel rising 726 feet from its foundation. The tour also flies over Lake Mead, the largest man-made reservoir in the U.S., the tributaries of the Colorado River and Black Canyon.

The Hoover Dam Helicopter Tours depart daily and prices start at $154.
