119 degrees! But an excellent trip led by an excellent guide (Kriss).Very informative about geology,history of the area,natural history,early settlers etc.At this temperature though you can't be away from the air conditioning of the minibus more than say 10 minutes.Very good add on to the Grand Canyon and adjacent parks (which we had just done). Minibus fine for a day trip but would be a bit cramped for a longer trip.
Amazingly surprised trip to Death Valley with my daughter. Our guide Jenni is very knowledgeable and gave us so much info not only about Death Valley but Las Vegas too. We had so much fun. Highly recommend this trip - photos doesnt do it justices. It was just AMAZING. Thank you Jenni.
My husband and I did this small group day tour through Death Valley, last week and it was a great experience. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the area, which always impresses me when we go on any kind of tour. They always seem to educate their passengers extremely well on whatever the tour is about. Our group consisted of 2 other couples, which was perfect. We seem to like the smaller group option more so than the bigger groups. It feels more personal to us this way.
Our tour started off early in the morning, with the driver picking us up at our hotel, on the strip. They provided with us, Lots of water and a packed lunch. During the tour, we made about 6 or 7 scenic stops within the park. All the locations were unique and amazing in color. The park is absolutely huge and we were only able to see a small fraction of it. The weather was perfect that day...only at some points during the day did it warm up. All in all, this tour made for about a 10 hour day.
Visiting Death Valley National Park is easy to do on your own, if you had your own car and didn't want to be affiliated with the tour groups. if you do go on your own, you won't get the history or the educational background behind the area/park.
For the money this was a poor tour. It cost quite a lot of money and I had expected much more. The amount of time actually spent in Death Valley was minimal. Our visit to Furnace Creek consisted of sitting under a tree with a sandwich. The so called picnic left a lot to be desired. My own was ordered specifically for a vegetarian and was as sloppy roll with some salad...not even a slice of cheese! the guide never stopped for breath...most of his nattering was about himself, his interest in reading and the stories he had read. Spend your hard earned cash eslewhere.
The scale of Death Valley is awesome and stunning. Our guide Kriss from Brindlestiff Tours really helped to make the day very special.
We were collected on time at 0800 at our hotel New York New York. Once in the area, stops at several points, display the uniqueness of the place. It's hot as you would expect, but cold water and air conditioning in the coach helped alleviate matters. The standard tour visits Dante's View, Zabriski Point, Devils Golf Course, Badwater and the Artist's Palette. We were returned to our hotel at 1700 hours. Brilliant a Day.
Pros: I can only give high rating to our guide Joel C. He was knowledgable and friendly. There was plenty of water provided.
Cons: Everything else was disappointing - the van was too small for 11 people, seats were VERY uncomfortable for such a long drive my friend is 5'4 and even she complained there was no space for a small backpack and not enough cup/bottle holders.
The four stops we did were VERY short 10-20min, but we had lunch for an hour. Why?
Doesn't seem to be well planned. 15 minis not enough time to enjoy the amazing views and take pictures because we needed to do a bit of walk on most of the stops to get to the photo opportunity. It was VERY frustrating that we were always rushed to come back to the van.
The guide would not start the van and A/C until all people from the group came back. Why?
The lunch sandwich was bottom-of-barrel.
Kriss was an excellent tour guide! He's knowledgeable, articulate, and a very nice guy. It was cooler than usual, 108 degrees. Wow! Be prepared for the heat. The route and views were very good. Great stops for time to stretch and take awesome photos. The van was fairly comfortable however leg room was limited. Overall, we're very glad we booked it. Viator delivered once again!
