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.

A great tour. Our guide, Ralph was a fountain of information about Las Vegas and Death Valley. Our first trip to Death Valley, We enjoyed all of the stops. Well worth the price!!!
Death Valley is a really cool place to see. My mom took me with her and it was nothing like I expected it to be. The sand dunes were really neat, like playing in a huge sandbox. Then we saw I think the salt mines which looked like a giant ice pond from afar. The best part was when we went to the top of the mountain so it seemed. it was amazing you could see everything from that vantage point. The drive there was not too bad, we stopped in a little town before we headed to a ghost town and a cemetery. I really had a great time seeing all the beauty there.
WOW!!! I had no idea that Death Valley was going to be as beautiful and inspirational as it was. What a fabulous way to spend the day away from the hustle and bustle of the Las Vegas Strip. Ironically I envisioned it being just a valley that could get extremely hot in the summer time. I had no idea how gorgeous and huge it really was. Because of the size of Death Valley the best way to see the highlights was by taking this tour. The driver/guide was very knowledgeable in regards to the history related to it. A must do for anyone who comes to Vegas and wants to see the stunning beauty that nature provides.
Jack the tour guide was great and so good with our toddler. The most amazing day and tour
This tour was just perfect from beginning to end. The booking process was straight forward, pick-up worked fine and the tour was excellent. The driver/guide was a great guy and both his driving and his information was first class.
Ralph, our guide, was very informative and knowledgeable. Made me appreciate what the early settlers experienced. Truly unique.
A wonderful experience. Our guide was Jack and he kept us informed about the wonders we were seeing and made us laugh, too.
Nice small group. A long day but worth it. We even had a rainbow!
Cold start in the early morning but warm by lunchtime in the desert so dress in layers. Good walking shoes if you want to enjoy the sand dunes, salt lake and the limestone rocks.
Trip was amazing and I very much recommend it; Death Valley is a really fantastic place with incredibly beautiful landscapes, and our tour guide Ralph was awesome; his brain is a fountain of endless knowledge.
