It was great. Ralph? was the guide who was absolutely informative. The tour is a small tour 11 people so there were plenty of stops at scenic places along the way and time was very efficiently used. There was no need for a super early pick up and transit at another location to another bigger bus. Ralph picked us up and head for death valley straightaway. Death valley is really gorgeous and I actually preferred this tour over Grand Canyon.
I can't stress enough that a small group tour is definitely a much more enjoyable experience compared to a big bus full of people.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

Ralph is a superb, highly knowledgeable and amusing guide. We had a vote as to whether to visit Scotty's Castle or have a more scenic tour. Everybody in the group opted for the scenic option and this was a great choice. There is so much to see and it was topped off with a visit to the genuine ghost town Rhyolite. We were given masses of water which was need as the temperature at the visitors centre showed 120 degrees. The coach was comfortable with the air conditioning and we didn't have to sat in the sun for long periods. This tour was definitely one of the highlights of our trip to Vegas.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

Visiting Death Valley was an incredible experience only enhanced by our guide Jack. Jack was friendly and engaging and very informative. We visited so many different sights and felt we came away with a very memorable day we will never forget.
