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.

Death Valley National Park has been on my bucket list for a LONG time. I am grateful our tour was with Ralph because he did an outstanding job providing history while taking us to the significant areas. His keen eye spotted many of the flowers that made a special appearance this year. He really knows and loves the Park. It was a long day from LV 400 miles roundtrip, but well worth it, and we have many photos to recall our time there. The van was clean and comfortable, a decent box breakfast and box lunch, timely restroom stops, and pickup and dropoff from your hotel. Do not hesitate to go on this tour to see and experience the largest National Park in the lower 48 - it is amazing!
It was a great tour, experience to remember! We ended up with a small group of seven people. Our guide, Ralph, was one of the best ever! He was so knowledgeable and talked for entire tour! that we decided to call him professor Ralph! Trip is worth every penny!
The tour was well organised, the food provided was good. The guide was exceptionally informative.
Driver was great very funny very informative Had a great day!!
Excellent trip. Long day,but the places visited were amazing,Ralph is an excellent guide.
Absolutely fantastic. Our driver - Ralph - was fantastic, well read and extremely helpful in answering questions.
It was take more than a full day to do Death Valley justice - so many unusual and beautiful vistas and formations. My mother , who is 91, weathered the trip well and was able to take in all the beauty in this area.
I wondered about visiting Death Valley on my own in a hired car but am so glad I joined the Day trip as the guide alas I've lost the piece of paper with his name on! was the most knowledgeable and interesting I think I've ever had. He was a mine of information on history, geography, geology, astronomy, flora, fauna and evolution as well as places in Death Valley. I think the tour I signed up for was supposed to visit Scotty's Castle but in the end the 9 of us on board the minibus opted to do the 'nature' tour and visited more 'out-of-the-way' less touristy places, plus the ghost town of Rhyolite. It was hot 46.7 degrees C 116 oF but we had just enough water on board. A memorable day and safe 'adventure'.

If you do nothing else in Vegas you have to do this trip. Our guide was very very knowledgable regarding geology, plant and animal life. made the whole trip very eduactional and enjpyable. I would give this tour 11/10.
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!
