Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

What You Can Expect

Death Valley Explorer Tour by Tour Trekker

Death Valley Explorer Tour by Tour Trekker

This Death Valley Jeep tour begins with a hotel pickup in Las Vegas.

First, make a brief stop at the Furnace Creek Visitor Center to gather some maps for the journey. Browse some of the books for sale and collect a Death Valley stamp for a National Park passport, if desired.

From there, drive to the Badwater Basin, the lowest point in the Western Hemisphere at 282 feet below sea level. This surreal landscape at Death Valley features one of the largest protected salt flats in the world — too harsh for most plants and animals to survive in. Then travel down Badwater Road to the Devil’s Golf Course, a large salt pan on the floor of Death Valley, located in the Mojave Desert within Death Valley National Park. The rain and wind continually erode this region, shape-shifting the ground into different-looking terrain with the weather.

Finally, experience the most breathtaking view in Death Valley: Dante’s Peak, a mountaintop overlook more than 5,000 feet above the desolation of Death Valley. Pull out the smartphone or camera to capture the breathtaking panoramic views. Interestingly, on a clear day, Mount Whitney, the highest point in the United States, and Badwater Basin, the lowest point in the US, can be seen from here.

Along the way, learn about Death Valley’s history, landscape and wildlife, plus the urban legends of ghost towns and long-abandoned gold mines along the way.

Lunch is included, so please make a sandwich selection in the Special Requirements field at the time of booking. Choose from turkey, Italian, ham, deluxe turkey (with cranberry and stuffing) or veggie.

Notice: This tour is seasonal and only operates from September to May.

It was a long day trip but very enjoyable. Our guide, Bob, was very knowledgeable and did a great job keeping you informed. You ride in a comfortable van where you have many stops along the way to see different sites, for bathroom breaksthere are many, and to take pictures. A boxed lunch is provided sandwich, chips, cookie, vegetables/cheese squares and they had a cooler filled with bottled water. I wore jeans, sneakers, t-shirt, hat, sunglasses and brought a light jacket that I ended up not needing. We went in November so that attire worked but if I was to go during the summer I would have worn shorts. It is family friendly. We had a very nice day and were glad we went. I have done many trips with Viator throughout the United States and in Italy and the tours booked through them have always exceeded my expectations. You can't go wrong booking tours with them.

Went on the Death Valley Tour the first week in October. Don, our tour guide was well informed and a true gentlemen to me and the other ladies in attendance. Really enjoyed the sites we were able to visit. The views of the valley were breath taking...but my favorite was the painter's pallet. Excellent box lunch. Very comfortable vehicle. Many thanks to Viator for their periodic reminders prior to the trip. The Bellagio's tour pick-up area is really comfortable and clean. Nancy Smith, Maysville, KY

This was a great tour. Driver/guide Phil was extremely helpful, taking photos and telling us about the Valley. There were only three of us on the tour, which made it feel very personal. Be ready for it to be hot. There was plenty of water available on the jeep and lunch was good - we had a picknic at a ranch in the Valley.
The scenery is breath-taking and as expected very dry and bleak. A real experience.

On time pick up, very comfortable tour van, guide/driver is very knowledgeable of Vegas and surrounding area.
Beautiful landscape, he explained it very well, too bad the day was overcast with occasional rain and wind.
Plenty of time for pictures taking, with restroom breaks on both ways, returned to a Vegas hotel on time.

It was a perfect day. The vehicle was quite comfortable, the lunch excellent, and Death Valley is unique and amazingly beautiful. And John was exceptional. Can't imagine anyone doing a better job.
