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.
The driver/guide was incredibly knowledgeable and friendly. A really enjoyable experience.
Enjoyed the trip immensely. It is a long day but very much worth it. If you want to see this area I do suggest going with someone who knows what they are doing. The guide also added extra bits of info along the way we would not otherwise have known. We went in Spring when the desert flora was starting to bloom. Had a great day.
The tour was absolutely amazing. Ralph the tour director was extremely knowledgeable. Could not ask for any better. Will definitely book with you again.
We really enjoyed this trip. It's one of the best we've ever taken. Beautiful place to visit. Excellent tour guide. Well worth the price of the tour!
Our tour guide was a fantastic person. Great orator and his knowledge of the area is commendable. Took us to beautiful spots and provided plenty of photography opportunities.
We loved this tour. Jack, our guide and driver, was very knowledgeable about everything to do with Death Valley. He kept us entertained throughout the trip. We did not do the guided tour of Scotty's Castle but did so many other things, We were sorry the trip ended as we enjoyed it so much.
Guide was great! Made the trip fun, very interesting and he had so much knowledge in many subjects. Highly recommend it!
The scenery was stunning in its scale an beauty but the trip was made by Jack our driver/guide. Thanks Jack!
Excellent tour with an outstanding tour guide. Ralph's enthusiasm and knowledge of the area, geology, history etc made for a most informative and enjoyable day.
The tour exceeded all expectations. Booked this tour through Viator and we ran into bad weather in Buffalo and our tour had to be changed. Called directly to the tour company and it was too late for a refund but they extended our time frame. So we were able to do the tour about a week later. Very professional company and very customer oriented. The food was good and the breaks were well timed. The van was comfortable and our travel mates were fun to be with. Ralph was our guide and you could not ask for a more knowledgeable and charming person. He told us history, descriptions and talked almost non-stop about the park and the surrounding areas. It was fascinating and interesting. I highly recommend this tour of Death Valley. Viator was easy to book through and the staff was very helpful and accommodating. I was pleased that I could contact them directly if need be.
