Death Valley Day Trip from Las Vegas

Death Valley Day Trip from Las Vegas

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 a complimentary 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.

After a full day of exploration, your day trip will conclude at your original departure point.

Wonderful experience. Our guide from CT and T, Ralph, was very knowledgeable about the area's history and geology, and kept us entertained. Because we were in a van, we could go a few places the larger buses were not allowed. My favorite spots were Dante's View and the Devil's Golf course. Highly recommend this tour.

I was really keen to go on this tour because it was something different from the usual Grand Canyon trips from Vegas.
The tour started early 6am but that let us beat a lot of the heat. The small group size made it really personal and Jack the guide made sure that he interacted with the whole group.
Jack was a wealth of info on the area we visited plus any other topic which you wanted to talk about.
The food was simple but it was all that was needed to keep us going.
All in all it was a professionally run tour which was worth every cent

This is a day trip well worth the time. Jack was a fabulous host teaching us history all along the way. There is so much to see and learn in Death Valley. You will see sand dunes, more than one salt flats, painted mountains, rocks, mountains and on and on. It is not boring at all. Jack was fun thus making it a fun day. We were fed breakfast and lunch. We also saw drones taking off and landing at the air force base and stopped outside of Area 51. Don't think that this would be a dull long day. Quite the opposite. We had good conversation, laughs, music, food and spectacular sights. Do it!

Very informative, Ralph was a great tour guide, just so much information I couldn't even remember it all. The day was long due to what all we saw but well worth the time. I would recommend this for the person that likes history. My husband and I liked it very much.

amazing trip


5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2016

Really enjoyed this tour, the guide I forget his name was incredibly knowledgeable...he did not stop talking the whole day, an absolute mine of information. Was really interesting, personally I could have done without the stops to look at desert flowers but that's just me, some people really liked it. It is a long day but you do see a lot...I loved it...and would certainly recommend it..makes a nice change from the vegas glitz as well.

We scheduled our Death Valley day tour for 5/14/2016, which happened to be the hottest day of the year. High temperature 110 F Our day started at 6:30 am when we were picked up from our hotel. The tour guide Ralph was prepared with a cooler full of cold bottle waters and food for us. Along the way we stopped several times for breaks.
The tour itself was outstanding. Ralph stopped and showed us the local flowers and cacti that grow in the desert region. Our group was lucky enough to even see the elusive desert tortoise! When we got to the salt flats, at Devils Golf Course, we were able to walk onto the flats, almost 300 feet below sea level. On the drive back we stopped at the Rhyolite Ghost Town. We saw the Bottle House as well as some interesting sculptures done by Albert Szukalski Ghost Rider The Last Supper ad Fred Bervoets Tribute to Shorty Harris
Throughout the drive, Ralph was able to inform us about the history of Las Vegas and Death Valley areas. He was able to answer questions regarding the types of rock formations, minerals located in the area and types of mining that had been done. He was able to answer all our questions regarding the types of plant and animal life for each region. Our only disappointment was Scotty's Castle being closed due to flood damage.
Our only tip would be, since this is truly a day trip 12-13 hours do not book show tickets or make dinner reservations until late in the evening. This is a long day, but it is well worth it and should not be missed.
