Wonderful day. Rob made us feel that we were the only ones on the tour. We were disappoined in not seeing Scotty's Castle but probably saw more of Death Valley. We would highly recommend this tour.
WE had the best tour EVER!.. Bob our tour guide was great! Learned alot like how Death Valley got its name. Bob was nice enough to take Pictures of us too. It was a good day Thanks for the memories :) Oh Bob we waved at your house when our Airplane Banked LOL
Excellent tour guide. We didn't get to Scotty's Castle because of the weather in the previous weeks. I didn't mind that, because our guide took us to amazing views and locations in Death Valley. Probably my best day in the US.

Doing what: Small-Group Death Valley National Park Day Trip from Las Vegas
Amazing tour from start to finish. This is a company who genuinely cares that the tour is as fabulous as it can be and its certainly clear that our guide Khriss enjoyed Death Valley as much as we did! We were taken to many extra places that weren't advertised and this really gave us a thorough tour taking in every highlight. Delicious lunch and by far the best tour I took in Las Vegas this year. We also took the Ghost Town Explorer tour of the Wild West with them and it was equally fantastic. Highly recommended- Thank you!

Doing what: Small-Group Death Valley National Park Day Trip from Las Vegas
I had a wonderful time with Rachel and Bindlestiff Tours at the Death Valley National Park!
First off, they offered me an alternative date because on friday the forecast was going to be 127 degrees, but the following sunday I'd have already left Vegas.
So I ended up being the only guest, 'cos all the others opted for the sunday trip. And even if I told them that it'd have been ok for me if they decided not to go ahead and simply refund me, they still went for it. And so I had Rachel all for myself. And what a treat it was!
Rachel is smart, professional, informative and she has a toon of experience, even though she's still so young ;) She's also english, which I don't mind at all. And she's a fellow vegetarian, which for me is a huge plus.
The Death Valley National Park is truly amazing and I was back in Vegas with the strong feeling to have enjoyed almost all the things that this incredible park had to offer! Badwater is breathtaking and also the scenic drive back through Artist's panel is really a nice addition to the tour.
I'd strongly recommend it: small groups is the way to go and see all those beautiful National Parks and Bindlestiff Tours has been a really exhaustive and professional tour company.
Definitely and by far the best tour I had this summer (and I had 4)!
Our Death Valley trip was great. Ralph was our guide and he was so knowledgeable. . I cannot think of one negative about it. Beautiful and interesting country.
This is THE best tour I have ever taken anywhere in the world and I've taken alot. Ralph was the best tour guide ever. The people complaining about hearing him talk to much obviously didn't listen to him or didn't want to learn. My only complaint about this tour is that it advertised a certificate of visiting death valley. Viator was unable to produce such even after writing to them when I returned, but the tour itself was excellent. I highly recommend.
This was my favorite tour of the three we did. We were in a minibus so could go on smaller roads that the coaches couldn't. It also meant there was less people crowding round.
Our guide, Ralph, was amazing and talked enthusiastically for the whole 11 hr day. He seemed to know everything about Death Valley including the wildlife, plants and geology. He also taught us about American History and about the History of Las Vegas. He seemed to love his job and it was interesting listening to him.
Death Valley itself was amazing and each stop was much more diverse that I was expecting. The Scotty's castle tour was also great and very interesting, even if you are European and have visited hundreds of castles like me!
We went in late November and the temperature was nice. It was quite cool in the morning so you need a jumper but it warmed up later. The food on the trip was also good. Definitely worth doing!
I'm from Brazil, Rio de Janeiro and i hope that all brazillians that are visiting Vegas to take a chance about doing this tour with Ralph.... I spent 17 days at USA West Cost but the tour to Death Valley was the best thing i did not only in my trip but in all others i've done before. Ralph is a wonderful guy and he always has all the questions and answers than you can imagine. Thank god everyone agreed about doing the Scenic Tour. I have no more words to say that this day will be forever in my mind. I took 550 pictures.... Bad Lands, Bad Water, Dante's View, Zabriesk Point, Devil's Golf Course, Furnance Creek .... I only don't know why it isn't the main tour (probably is much better than going to a Castle)... Don't need to worry about water, food or delays... Thank you so much for the best pictures and the best moments in life =)
My father and I both had the best time on this trip. Ralph was the best tour guide ever! EXTREMELY knowledgable on all topics regarding Death Valley, Geology, and History in general. We'd recommend this trip to anyone. Two thumbs up.
This was a wonderful trip. It is a long day but its cetainly worth it. Our guide was excellant. He was a wealth of information and incite. I just wish I could remember all what he told us. The trip to Scotty's Castle, which I wasn't sure I would like was actually great. The park service rangers gave an awesome tour. We stopped at several places in Death Valley--all very beautiful and they even gave us a chance to buy some souvenirs.
I highly reccommend this trip
for a great change of scenery,, take this trip,, there is nothing like death valley. Great weather, great guide Ralph. We saw big horn sheep, taranchula, and wild mustangs on the
trip. Only had 5 of us on the mini bus and that was really nice too. Walked the sand dunes, the salt flats, mustard canyon, ghost town and haunted theater. Didn't take the extra time for scotty's castle,, since that is out of the way abit and would have eliminated other things. Just a neat place to see and experience.
This was a fabulous day trip! Our guide was prompt and courteous. He provided us with so much information about both Death Valley and Las Vegas. He made many stops and allowed us all the time we wanted in each spot. Death Valley was an AMAZING place to visit! I, and my 11 year old, expected the beach without water--we were soooo wrong! Anyone with a day to spare while in Las Vegas should book this tour. It was worth my time and money!! I would do it again in a minute.
This was an amazing trip. A long day, and very tiring but well worth it. The scenery is spectacular; truly one of the most fascinating spots on the planet. Our guide Ralph was a walking encyclopedia of knowledge and one of the very best guides I have EVER had on any tour. This guy is a gem. He is intelligent, well-read, thoughtful and really knows and loves Death Valley. He gave us the option of skipping Scotty's Castle for the "scenic tour," which thankfully everyone agreed to. It was amazing. Ralph took us to every nook and cranny of Death Valley...and we even got to go up to Dante's Peak, which we would not have been able to do if you go to the Castle. He also had some other surprises for us, which I won't spoil here. The food was quite good. Plenty of water. The van was very comfortable, but we were full, for sure. I highly recommend this tour. It gives you an appreciation for Death Valley that you would not otherwise have, from the history to the geology. And you cannot beat Ralph....the tour company is lucky to have him. This is really his calling. Bravo! A++.
Even though May isnt the best time to visit the Death Valley, we had fun because our guide was very knowledgeable about the entire geographical and historical perspectives of the Death Valley, Las Vegas and the Californian region. We had a great time. Please be sure to take lots of water and lots of sunscreen and lots of pictures, coz these are a once in a lifetime views.
