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.

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.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2018

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 there...wow. 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!


5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2018

Wow! This was the best trip. Our guide Ralph kept us entertained with so much local history and is obviously well read in many areas -- geology, geography, history. Our driver Joshua was friendly too and did a great job getting us to and from our destination. Although this was a long day, we didn't even notice. Death Valley is amazing. Since you really should go, I won't add any spoilers about this fantastic day trip!

Excellent day excursion from Las Vegas. We comfortably explored much of Death Valley with Ted, our tour guide. A special surprise was our visit to Rainbow Canyon, also known to pilots at Star Wars Canyon, where we were able to see at least five jets practice their runs through the canyon. It was so exciting to see and hear them fly by us. Our box breakfast and lunch was great and appreciated. We highly recommend this trip to learn about the largest national park in the U.S. below Alaska.

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!
