It was great. Ralph? was the guide who was absolutely informative. The tour is a small tour 11 people so there were plenty of stops at scenic places along the way and time was very efficiently used. There was no need for a super early pick up and transit at another location to another bigger bus. Ralph picked us up and head for death valley straightaway. Death valley is really gorgeous and I actually preferred this tour over Grand Canyon.
I can't stress enough that a small group tour is definitely a much more enjoyable experience compared to a big bus full of people.
Very nice trip. Enjoyed the tour. The tour guide Franklin ? was very informative and knowledgeable!
Great, Ralph was a lovely guide and the sights were amazing. Boxed lunches were good!
This is a must! I have a good laugh and fun this day. The view is breathtaking. I would say a must do
Wow, what a great day!! Everything about the trip was more than we expected. Great breakfast and lunch unbelievable scenery Jack the awesome tour guide - priceless!!!!
Absolutely fantastic! Jack showed us so many places in Death Valley and kept us entertained the whole time. It's hard to do justice to this your in a review - all I can say is, do it - you won't be disappointed and you will see so many breathtaking sights along the way - and so much more than is mentioned in the description. Very highly recommended and if you end up with jack guiding you - it'll be a bonus!
Very good. Many stops so we could see the sights og landscape.
Ralph is a superb, highly knowledgeable and amusing guide. We had a vote as to whether to visit Scotty's Castle or have a more scenic tour. Everybody in the group opted for the scenic option and this was a great choice. There is so much to see and it was topped off with a visit to the genuine ghost town Rhyolite. We were given masses of water which was need as the temperature at the visitors centre showed 120 degrees. The coach was comfortable with the air conditioning and we didn't have to sat in the sun for long periods. This tour was definitely one of the highlights of our trip to Vegas.
Visiting Death Valley was an incredible experience only enhanced by our guide Jack. Jack was friendly and engaging and very informative. We visited so many different sights and felt we came away with a very memorable day we will never forget.
What a place - What can I add to what others have said.
I went on a day trip from Las Vegas so we had 2-3 hrs drive there and again back....BUT don't let that put you off because en-route both there and back, there is so much to see. We did all the usual stops including Furnace Creek Ranch Museum, Badwater and Rhyolite Ghost Town -We also visited the Badlands famous hideaway country for the Wild West bandits to hide on the way to these places, which was again breath-taking. The salt flats are amazing and magnificent in that you can physically see miles and miles across mountain ranges. Like the Grand Canyon it has to be one of the major places to visit in the world. Ralph was our guide and he was without doubt the most knowledgeable about Death Valley and geology and the formation and literally everything you can think of. He made the trip great!
Amazing and surprising scenery .....surpassing all my expectations. Tour guide Ralph was a fount of knowledge ... He tells stories about Geology that's my thing so I was very pleased about that , flora and fauna , American history and culture and all about Vegas. Although it's a long day and long drive 450 miles - we saw so much and it was really worth every cent.
Thanks for a great memorable day Ralph.
I loved this tour! It was 113 F and extremely hot, but the tour guide was fantastic and gave a brilliant tour of the area and took us to some great view points in the park. Breakfast and lunch was included and as much ice-cold water as we needed throughout the day. Our tour guide Jack made the tour especially enjoyable with his great sense of humour and vast local knowledge. We also visited a ghost town on the way to Death Valley which was fun and interesting. I would highly recommend this tour, it was great!
We had a great day even though the heat was incredible. A nice breakfast and lunch were provided. Our guide Jack was really knowledgeable, even down to which toilets to avoid. The scenery was really spectacular, highly recommend this tour as it is so unique and it is nice to venture out of Vegas.
You will love it. Our drive and tour guide Ralph works hard to make this trip a wonderful trip.

This trip was fantastic and would highly recommend it. The scenery was beautiful and the tour guide was great - very enthusiastic and knowledgeable.
I did immediately answer your request for a review and told you the trip was wonderful. We cannot wait to get back to Las Vegas and take the Area 51 trip. Our trip to Death Valley was spectacular and the tour guide was the main attraction. I love geology and he knew more geology than did many of my college professors. I would recommend this trip to anyone who loves mountains, deserts and geology. You will see things that can only be found in Death Valley.
very professional Tour Guide, fascinating landscape, amazing Tour. Must see!!!
Many thanks again to Adventure Photo Tours to provide Gluten Free food during the Tour
It was very enjoyable and the driver so knowledgeable and entertaining. I would recommend this tour to any body. To be honest, relatives talked us into it and I thanked them later for suggesting such a fun day.
A great day trip via a ghost town to spectacular views of Death Valley . Jack was a great informative guide, allowing time for us to climb across sand dunes, salt flats below sea level, visitor centre and high up in the Badlands to an amazing lookout across to the mountains. I'd do it again !
It was a most enjoyable trip with excellent information from Jack, our driver. We would certainly recommend this to our friends.
Fantastic. Our tour guide (Ralp?) was just fantastic. Very knowledgeable and took us to the most beautiful places. A vwry long day but broken up so well that it didn't feel like it and an experience I will never forget.
Outstanding day trip to Death Valley. Ralph was a great tour leader and shared lots of information about the history and general information along the way. The trip exceeded all expectations. The landscapes were breath-taking. It was interesting to see the salt flats and Scotty's Castle was a fascinating stop. Appreciated the continental breakfast, tasty lunch and all the ice water that was available to us.
A wonderful and well-managed trip to a unique and outstanding place of natural beauty. The guide was incredibly knowledgeable and personable, and covered brilliantly, and with a lot of humour, all aspects of the natural history, and social and human history of the region. Death Valley is a breathtaking and beautiful wilderness, and an extraordinary reminder that there is more to this world than dismal human cities like Las Vegas. The transport was very comfortable, and the trip very, very well managed, with a small number of people, food provided and time given to actually walk out into the badlands, the salt-flats and the desert. Numerous opportunities for photos were provided too, and the length of the tour was perfect. I could not recommend this tour highly enough to anyone at all who has a day here in the area, and who wants to see one of the world's most stunning wildernesses, and maybe be reminded that there is so much more to life than what cities have to offer.
