What You Can Expect
Travel into Death Valley National Park, stopping at Dante's View, a 5,475-foot (1,669-meter) mountain top panorama, and Badwater, the lowest spot in North America, at 282 feet (85 meters) below sea level. Check out the permanent spring-fed pool where you can actually walk on the salt flats.
Enjoy a provided boxed lunch before continuing to the Ubehebe Crater, a type of maar volcano created by steam and gas explosions when hot magma comes into contact with groundwater. Then it's on to Furnace Creek Ranch Museum, where you can learn about the history of Death Valley.
You'll also stop at the Mesquite Flat Sand Dunes to marvel at the stark, graceful curves of the sand, as well as Devil's Cornfield and Rhyolite Ghost Town.
After a full day of exploration, your day trip will conclude at your original departure point.

Very informative, Ralph was a great tour guide, just so much information I couldn't even remember it all. The day was long due to what all we saw but well worth the time. I would recommend this for the person that likes history. My husband and I liked it very much.
Really enjoyed this tour, the guide I forget his name was incredibly knowledgeable...he did not stop talking the whole day, an absolute mine of information. Was really interesting, personally I could have done without the stops to look at desert flowers but that's just me, some people really liked it. It is a long day but you do see a lot...I loved it...and would certainly recommend it..makes a nice change from the vegas glitz as well.
We scheduled our Death Valley day tour for 5/14/2016, which happened to be the hottest day of the year. High temperature 110 F Our day started at 6:30 am when we were picked up from our hotel. The tour guide Ralph was prepared with a cooler full of cold bottle waters and food for us. Along the way we stopped several times for breaks.
The tour itself was outstanding. Ralph stopped and showed us the local flowers and cacti that grow in the desert region. Our group was lucky enough to even see the elusive desert tortoise! When we got to the salt flats, at Devils Golf Course, we were able to walk onto the flats, almost 300 feet below sea level. On the drive back we stopped at the Rhyolite Ghost Town. We saw the Bottle House as well as some interesting sculptures done by Albert Szukalski Ghost Rider The Last Supper ad Fred Bervoets Tribute to Shorty Harris
Throughout the drive, Ralph was able to inform us about the history of Las Vegas and Death Valley areas. He was able to answer questions regarding the types of rock formations, minerals located in the area and types of mining that had been done. He was able to answer all our questions regarding the types of plant and animal life for each region. Our only disappointment was Scotty's Castle being closed due to flood damage.
Our only tip would be, since this is truly a day trip 12-13 hours do not book show tickets or make dinner reservations until late in the evening. This is a long day, but it is well worth it and should not be missed.
The trip was amazing, Ralph the guide was so knowledgeable and informative - a fabulous day even though the weather started off very wet, Ralph juggled the itinerary to ensure we got the very best of the day. Thank you Ralph. I would highly recommend this trip - amazing.....
Firstly I want to give a massive thank you to our guide/drive Jack who was brilliant! He is good at getting the group that you travel in to interact and make the tour very enjoyable with his knowledge and humour! The tour itself was stunning with good locations picked by Jack and plenty of time to get photos and enjoy the stunning views. Death Valley is one of the most beautiful places I have ever visited and hope to go back one day!!
