Las Vegas, Nevada
What a wonderful day. Naturally I had seen photos of the place in advance but they do no justice to the true beauty of this amazing, strange, very powerful and spiritual place. The colors, the rock formations, the wildlife. We were also lucky to visit on a sunny day so the colors were really blazing.
Also, our guide Charlene was a magician, literally taking us to another time and place with wonderful stories to share and with patience to stop and show us around without any feeling of hurry. I will especially never forget the magic trick of how we arrived in Rainbow Vista (I must tell you that the night before I had seen David Copperfield at the MGM and mind you I absolutely do love his illusions, but sorry Mr. Copperfield, you've been beaten!).
I highly recommend this tour. And especially if you have only one day to spend since the park is not far from Vegas, so you don't need to spend 5+ hours. During my visit to Vegas I visited several other parks (including Grand Canyon and Death Valley) and of all these Valley of Fire remains the most stunning experience.

This tour was such a wonderful way to experience this strange and beautiful place. Our group only had five people which was really great since it allowed extra flexibility and allowed us to make some extra stops on the way. We saw Dante's view, Zabriskie Point, Badwater, Artist's Drive, Devil's Golf course, had lunch at Furnace Creek. Artist's Drive was a real gem to me, I had never thought that Death Valley would be so full of colors! The rocks were everything from shades of red yellow purple and even green. We were lucky to visit on a sunny day so the colors were truly bright and remarkable.
The tour was all great fun and our guide Rachel was great and very knowledgeable. All in all a superb day in every way. Highly recommended!
