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.

Tour was great. Unbelievable scenery and a great tour guide. I would recommend to anyone visiting the area.
It was the highlight of my trip to Las Vegas. My tour guide 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 !
It was a wonderful experience and our tour guide Jack was very informative. I would highly recommend this tour.
What a great tour. I loved the beautiful landscape at Zabriskie Point, the Dunes and Dantes View as Well as Furnace Creek and the ghosts at the open air museum. Wow.
What a great trip. I loved it. Wonderful to see the salt formations and the open air museum with those creepy ghosts and to be on the lowest point on the surface of the Earth.
Our day in Death Valley was great. The best part was learning all about the area, the geology, plants and animals from our guide. Ralph is an exceptionally knowledgeable and informative guide. Ask for him if you can.
The tour guide was a wealth of information. We had plenty of time to enjoy the sights. I was pleasantly surprised with the beauty of Death Valley.
Interesting tour guide great job, Ralph!, extensive tour sights, plenty of stops and informative.

We need another STAR!!! This excursion was way beyond our expectations. Thank you viator. And an especial thank you to our driver/tour guide Ralph who we came to refer to as the Professor who knows a lot about local plants, animals, geology, and history. He kept up an animated and informative dialogue throughout the day of where we were going, what we'd be seeing, etc. The fact that he's been doing this for nearly two decades is evident. This trip is jammed packed with experiences. A smaller passenger bus was used more on the size of a mid-size shuttle, smaller than a school bus, so no lavatory, but it was just the right size to go where Ralph wanted to take us to enhance the experience and he included plenty of stops to take care of business so no discomfort--a big charter bus would not have worked well at all. If you get to Death Valley be sure to include Dantes View--you won't regret the breathtaking views of the valley floor and surrounding mountains. Then there's the Badlands--amazing. Take the time to drive out to the Devils Golf Course--fascinating. Badwater Basin allows you to walk out onto the salt flats and that's where the SEA LEVEL sign is located on the side of the cliff. Water throughout this trip is a must of course and was provided compliments of the tour company--nice touch. We had beautiful weather and the temp display at the Furnace Creek Visitor Center read 93 degrees at 4:15pm on March 1--coming from New England, this was refreshing. Before leaving the park, we took in the Mesquite Flat Sand Dunes--picturesque. It was our good fortune to visit DV during a rare wildflower bloom, which only enhanced the experience. There are plenty of others places we stopped along the way which would require paragraphs more to include. We could not have pulled off an excursion of this nature on our own. Well worth the cost.
