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.
I booked this trip to celebrate my Husbands Birthday whilst staying in Vegas. Our tour guide Mark made our day very special he took us to the best vantage points and was very informative and friendly. Would definitely recommend this tour with Viator.
Jack was our tour guide, was only my daughter and I. Fantastic amount of knowledge, greats photo opps, very friendly guide. Highly recommended, especially if you get it buy yourself.
incredible. We did the sight seeing tour and stopped at 16 locations. Our tour guide was incredible an awesome day
I liked the itinerary, and I especially liked the tour guide, who was so fun and knowledgeable about the place.
We loved Death Valley!! Our guide was Jack, who made the trip as special as it was, with his bright, unflagging enthusiasm for Death Valley, and his vast knowledge of the area. We travelled on Jan 25, 2014, and even though the day was beautiful, it was very cool, so take a jacket and even some gloves, but warmed up when we travelled down onto the valley floor.
We were picked up at our hotel, Monte Carlo, at approx 0615, and we're returned at approx 1700, so it is a long day, approx 400km Jack stated. But that was fine by us, as we wanted to see lots of desert.
The salt flats were amazing, the small towns, and the ghost town were also very interesting. Looking at all the colours of the hills at the Artists Dream were amazing, and difficult to capture on an ordinary camera, so you must view it with your eyes.
We had just arrived from New Zealand, the day before, and I was worried I would be too tired to handle a long drive, but we had frequent stops, and there were ample toilet breaks, also. We also did plenty of short walks, and a boxed breakfast and lunch were also provided. You also were able to buy more food and drink at different places if you needed.
We loved Death Valley. If I ever returned, I would do the same trip again, and ask for Jack!! He has a real respect and love for the area, which shows in all his explanations, and he wants you to feel it to!!
GREAT to have Ralph do all the driving and letting us have time to stop and stretch our legs or walk uphill for photos. The scenery is breathtaking. Scotty's castle offered many stories told by a period costumed park warden. This was a wonderful day trip away from the glitz of Las Vegas.
My wife and I took a tour on 12/26. We had lots of fun on the trip with a great tour guide named Franklin. He is really knowledgeable in geology and the history of Death Valley and LV. Without his hard work and insanely patience, we would not have had that much fun and information to this amazing trip. Highly recommended!
It was an excellent experience, we enjoyed ourselves very much. Great vendor and guides. Please see our complete review for this vendor via Tripadvisor with title "Death Valley Inthe rain."
Excellent Tour! Covered all the major points of Death Valley like Badwater Basin, Volcanic Crater, Devils Golf course, Scotty's Castle and various scenic sightseeing stops throughout the Valley. Our tour guide Ralph was very knowledgeable, patient and gave excellent commentary. Must visit for all !!!!
This was a wonderful trip. The weather was cold and rainy but it still managed to be a good time. We went to many different sights in the park and went to Scotty's castle as well. This is a great break from vegas and the scenery is beautiful. But what really made this trip was our tour guide. He had so much knowledge about everything- Death Valley, Las Vegas, geology and imported many hours of information in an interesting way.
We were extremely pleased with the tour. The guide was great. I would highly recommend this trip!
This was a wonderful day. Ralph, our guide, was certainly the icing on the cake because he was such a personable guy and so informative that we could have stayed listening to him for a second day had we been given the option. The sights were just so spectacular that they will remain with us always.
