Death Valley Day Trip from Las Vegas

Death Valley Day Trip from Las Vegas

Begin your day trip at your select Las Vegas hotel, where you'll meet your guide and hop aboard your coach. Head first to Beatty, Nevada, located in the Mojave Desert, for a complimentary breakfast.

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.

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!!

Ralph was great and is really into his job. He gave us more information about Death Valley and Vegas than I thought was possible. It is a very long day pick up at 6:15 am and drop off at 7:15 pm . We were not able to see Scotty's Castle and the crater- they got flooded in October 2015 with no date to reopen so Viator really needs to update the description of this tour. Ralph substituted other locations.There were only 6 of us on this tour which was great.

I can't recommend this day trip to Death Valley enough, our tour guide Ralph was exceptionally knowledgeable about not only the area and it's history but also many types of flora and fauna found in the valley, was very interesting to learn about all the flowers that we saw.
It is a long day but worth it, you will come away with some fantastic photos and memories, I also would like to commend Ralph on how he dealt with a passenger who was having issues with another tour pickup, he tried his very best to contact them on her behalf and was very polite and helpful, he really went above and beyond. Thanks again for a great tour !
