Why Travelers Choose This Tour

Begin your day trip at your select Las Vegas hotel, where you'll meet your guide and hop aboard your coach. Head first to Beatty, Nevada, located in the Mojave Desert, for breakfast.
Travel into Death Valley National Park, stopping at Dante's View, a 5,475-foot (1,669-meter) mountain top panorama, and Badwater, the lowest spot in North America, at 282 feet (85 meters) below sea level. Check out the permanent spring-fed pool where you can actually walk on the salt flats.
Enjoy a provided boxed lunch before continuing to the Ubehebe Crater, a type of maar volcano created by steam and gas explosions when hot magma comes into contact with groundwater. Then it's on to Furnace Creek Ranch Museum, where you can learn about the history of Death Valley.
You'll also stop at the Mesquite Flat Sand Dunes to marvel at the stark, graceful curves of the sand, as well as Devil's Cornfield and Rhyolite Ghost Town.

Good outing for a day with excellent stops, view points and good scenery. Ralph was a very knowledgeable guide and touched on very many subjects including the topics about death valley. The drive was pleasant and with frequent stops, it was perfect. Hope there was more time to visit few more attraction points and at certain stops more time to hike the trail. Recommend this trip to anyone. .

Our trip to Death Valley was great, in part because our driver/guide Cathi Hughes was great. She was so knowledgeable and pleasant. She gave us so much information and helpful suggestions for enjoying the area. We were on a bus which had a 14-passenger capacity. Being smaller than the traditional larger tour bus, she could take us several places the others could not go. And we did go many places and covered a lot of the park, although not nearly all as it is so large (largest national park in the lower 48). I would highly recommend this day trip. Had we gone on our own we would have wasted so much time trying to decide what to see and how to get there. I feel we made the most of our time in Death Valley.

I thought Death Valley was one big empty desert but our tour guide Jack showed us the varied terrain. We only missed the National Park Visitor's Center because of the stupid Trump Shutdown of the government. The overflowing trash and nasty bathrooms are not the fault of the touring company. At least there were no fatalities in this park. Wow what amazing formations. The salt formations were amazing and the wild ride over the dirt roads in the hills was exciting. Be sure to book this if you have never visited Death Valley. We would have never found the out of the way places he took us to.

Ralph was a fabulous guide - he knew so much about the landscape, interesting stories related to the sites and even an overview of the region and history of Las Vegas.

Excellent trip, Jack was good fun, very informative and took us on rough track roads as we were in a small mini bus, nothing was too much trouble for him, he interacted with all the passengers.

Loved this trip. Amazing tour, got to see a lot, comfy bus ride. I slept the whole time. Lunch was very simple ham sandwich with no veggies but you could buy other food where they took us! Plenty of water available. Bring an external battery charger so you can take all the photos.

The pick up was on time, a great start to any trip. Jack was informative right from the start keeping us up to date. His choice of fill in music was good as well.

An early start for this one but with a small group 13 people in this case. Breakfast, lunch and unlimited water being provided. Rest stops and viewing stops were plentiful. Ralph our driver was a star his commentary was fabulous explaining everyones questions...a true font of knowledge. First stop was at the Haunted hotel just before Death Valley which was interesting as was the Badlands and Zabriski point. Fantastic landscape there and colours. Then onto the Valley. First stop being the sea level marker then down we went. The Devils Golf Course being the first real stop On to the Salt flats at Badwater Basin once again a great stop. Next was Artists Pallette before our lunch stop at the golf course. The visitors centre had a shopping opportunity for our daughter. More stops on the way back included a ghost town and the sand dunes. A final stop being a gas station on the way back the Area 51 Alien Centre. If your not doing that trip get your goodies here. All in all the best trip of our tour thanks to Ralph and the frequent stops...great if you have kids no are we nearly there yet comments. Five stars!

I really enjoyed the Death Valley tour with Jack our guide and Mike our driver. Death Valley is such a unique area and I was mesmerised by its other-worldly scenery. I would recommend the Death Valley tour. The only down side was the lunch which needed some salad.
