What You Can Expect

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 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.

Death Valley was amazing, my favorite Nationalpark in the US. We were a group of three and our tour guide Ralf knew all about Death Valley and showed us a lot of great places. There were only a few tourists in january. I highly recommend this tour!

This was a very nice trip. We saw some beautiful sights. The best was the migrating tarantula crossing the street. Expect it to be a very long day when you go. Our driver, Ralph, was so knowledgeable and passionate about everything. He knew so much information and tried to tell us as much as he could. If you have a day to spend, this is a great trip.

First of all thanks to our Driver & Guide forgot the name for making this trip unforgettable. He is so so informative that he keeps on telling us the things not only about Death Valley but other many things too. i think in our 13 hrs tour he didn't tell us or talk to us about anything for 3 hrs.
TAlk about Death Valley so really don't know why its called Death Valley but after visit, i think this is the most lively place on earth. Nature have shown us the power that how things can be created completed different within miles only. Both sides of the road have different kind of mountains, from high top to lew bottom its amazing and must must visit.

Perfect! Death Valley is a long drive from Las Vegas so we did not want to drive ourselves. We booked this tour and had a fabulous time. Our guide, Ralph, was friendly and kind. He was a fountain of knowledge and made sure we had ample stops for picture taking, exploring and to use the restrooms.

My sister and I really enjoyed the Death Valley tour. Our driver, Jack, was really nice and funny. Through the day he managed to mix interesting facts with jokes. He also made the tour very personal and included the nationality and background of each passenger.

Death Valley is absolutely worth seeing. The different parts of it look like complete different worlds.

In the morning we were all picked up at different hotels. The van was really new. After driving for about 45 minutes, we stopped for a while and breakfast boxes were distributed. The breakfast consisted of an apple, a muffin and an orange juice. Bottles of cold water were available for free at all times.
On the way to the Death Valley we visited a ghost town and old graveyard, which was really impressive. After this, we went straight into the valley. As mentioned earlier, the views were stunning and very interesting.
Throughout the day, there were different kinds of stops. Sometimes the participants were given certain amounts of time to explore the surroundings themselves. On some occasions only short stops to take a picture were being made. I really liked this!
The lunch was also really good. Everyone got a sandwich, chips and cookies.

Death Vally is definitely something different than what you see in your everyday life! Especially the huge fields of salt are something still really special.

What should be noted, is that a tip of 10-20 is expected. This should be kept in mind during the planning and booking process, since the tour itself is already expensive.
However, I think that this trip was absolutely worth it.

Went with a company called Casino Travel and their driver called Jack. This bloke made the day! Extremely knowledgeable about the area AND everywhere else on the planet! He has a wealth of information about all the places you visit and plenty of jokes to keep everyone smiling. If you get Jack as your driver you're in for a good day. Death valley is an amazing place and to visit it with a small group on a comfortable mini-bus is ideal. I'd recommend this trip.
