What You Can Expect

Death Valley Day Trip from Las Vegas

Death Valley Day Trip from Las Vegas

Your Death Valley adventure begins with a complimentary continental breakfast in Beatty, Nevada, your first stop in the Mojave Desert. Then it's on to Scotty's Castle, where your castle guide will take you back in time. After your 60-minute guided tour of the castle, you will have 30 minutes of free time to explore the castle grounds and enjoy a complimentary picnic lunch served in the grounds of Scotty's Castle.

After lunch you will continue on to your third stop, Ubehebe Crater. The crater is all that remains from a volcanic eruption that was so violent, the volcano itself was destroyed. Then it's on to Furnace Creek Ranch Museum, where you can learn about the history of Death Valley.

Next stop is Badwater, the lowest spot in North America, at 282 feet (85 meters) below sea level, with a permanent spring-fed pool where you actually can walk on the salt flats. Your final stop on the tour is at Rhyolite Ghost Town.

Please note: due to high temperatures,  this tour does not operate from June to August.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2014

I was unable to go but Viator was accommodating in offering a resolution. My sister went and said it was great. The tour director, Jerry, was very informative and even though they did not go to Scotty's Castle, he took them to several additional scenic sights to make up for it (although if the itinerary is different than what is listed, you should mention that disclaimer before people sign up instead of once the person is on the bus and has to ask "hey, what about Scotty's castle" - the change was because the road was under construction for several months).The local guide service Viator uses and Viator are reputable companies. It is also easy to contact Viator since they are open 6 a.m. to 10 p.m.

The best trip ever. Mainly because of the guide Jack with tremendous experience and knowledge about the area and about the world. He is amazing.
