"Mike brought 11 friends and I on a day tour today of Death Valley and all I can say is that it greatly exceeded my expectations. He thoroughly impressed us with his knowledge of the local culture, geography and history. He also knew of which areas to stop to take excellent photo opportunities. Mike is clearly a tour guide that exudes passion for his job and was very friendly and accommodate our many needs!
Thanks for a great experience and I highly recommend this experience for individuals who might want a little more variety than what the strip provides.
This is a tour that gives you a sample of the several landmark views of Death Valley (1-day trip) and Grand Canyon / Monument Valley / Zion (3-day trip). Since the parks are huge, you spend a lot of time going from one place to the other using their van. The van was comfortable and spacious. The tour guides are very friendly and knowledgeable about history and other aspects of the places we visited. This is a great trip to know the key landmarks and views from the park.
We wanted to write a note in reference to our tour guide Mike on Dec 30th. We so appreciated his pleasant disposition and cheerful manner. He was both informative and infused the right amount of humor at the same time. We will highly recommend this tour to others based on our experience with Mike.
We were lucky enough to find this tour for our day trip to Death Valley from Las Vegas. The arrangements were easy and they were spot on time to pick us up at our hotel. Our guide, Mike was super friendly and very knowledgeable. He made the drive (just under 2 hours) very enjoyable. There is a stop on the way out at Pahrump for bathrooms and coffee so don't be put off by the distance. Also, the scenery on the way to Death Valley was really lovely the day we went. We started our experiences in Death Valley at Dantes View which is over 5,000 ft. above sea level. It was a little chilly so make sure you take a fleece or something warm along that you can later peel off when you go down to the valley floor. The views from up here are spectacular and you get some idea of the size of Death Valley so it's a great place to start. Also, we were lucky enough to see a Chukar (a partridge type bird) digging in some stones for insects to eat and I got some pictures of it as well. We visited all the other main tourist sites like Zabriskie's Point, Badwater Basin, and Artist's drive. In the middle we had a brief rain storm (Who says it doesn't rain in the desert??) and lunch at the Furnace Creek resort area. The box lunch is hearty...a large sandwich, chips, fruit, cookie, etc. And on the way out of the park we saw several coyotes near enough to the road to get some good pictures of them. All in all, it was a great day, full of geological facts and wonderful scenery. I would very much like to go again. I highly recommend this tour
Great experience :
- booked the trip the day before and everything works well
- guide on time for pickup, "timing under control"
- guide very motivated, funny and knowledgeable (btw there are 58 national parks in the US according to google; this was a discussion topic during the trip and one client was very "firm" claiming that there are 48 national parks ;-)
- nice places to visit
- impressive landscape and geology
In summary, a great experience
I highly recommend it
Death Valley is a national park must have the one really visited. Our guide Jennie was very knowledgeable and told many interesting things about Vegas in general and Death Valley in particular - among others as Death Valley got its name. Even if informed in advance about this place so the reality is then still more impressive and spectacular than we imagined it. Zabriskie Point and Devil's Golf Course are good places for stunning photos. Pick up from hotel has also worked wonderfully. If someone wants to experience how it fills beyond the 40 degree mark, should a tour from June - Book August. :-) I can present this tour to anyone warmly recommend.
Scheduling and confirmation were smooth. Personalized pick up service at our hotel. Sara was a great guide, extremely knowledgeable interesting and informative. Roomy and comfy well air conditioned van. Small group tour size if about 8, was just right. Unlimited free water, a necessity at death valley in July! A very nice pre-ordered boxed lunch. Sara pushed water on us all! Loved the history and facts on the region. Death Valley was surreal, other -worldly and an amazing adventure. Not to be missed! Highly recommend the professionalism and service!
Very happy with our 1-day tour to Death Valley. We visited the most important spots and got a lot of interesting details and explanations from our guide. The food was reasonable and there was plenty of cold water, which is essential at Death Valley. Even umbrellas were available!
My boyfriend and I took the Death Valley national park tour as well as the 3 day national parks tour. Both were incredible. Friendly knowledgeable tour guides provided a wealth of knowledge throughout both tours. Pre tour communication was excellent and speedy. I can't recommend this company highly enough.
We came to Vegas as a stopover on the way to Hawaii and had missed Death Valley last time we did a USA road trip so we really wanted a great experience as this was the main reason we'd stopped in Vegas. This was an absolutely brilliant tour. From the communication and confirmations days before, to the ease of being picked up in our hotel (The Mirage), this was a truly excellently organised trip. Our guide Sarah was so lovely and informative and a great person to feel reassured by as this trip is quite extreme in terms of risk of dehydration! The van was great - air conditioned and brand new; lunch was provided (and vegetarian friendly!); the stops were breathtaking and like nowhere else on earth and the whole trip was just a fantastic break from the craziness of Vegas. Well worth doing!
was going to drive to Death Valley (Death Valley), but decided to participate in this trip, glad to make this choice. 4 people plus a guideline drive a comfortable car , hotel shuttle quickly. Jenny knowledgeable guides , encyclopedic knowledge . Death Valley flowers , as far as I know this scene only once in 10 years . Mountains and plains of wild flowers cover the mountains like a blanket . Unlimited bottled water supplied by Jenny, Lunch is also very good . have a good time,...
Amazing tour. Jennie our tour guide was very knowledgeable and informative during our drive to Death Valley. We stopped as all the major points of interest and had plenty times for photos and were not rushed throughout the day. A fresh packed lunch was provided and any amount of water
fantastic day and beautiful scenery!
Firstly, our tour guide Khriss Urban was great. He made the day trip to Death Valley a very informative and interesting day. His knowledge of Vegas,Pahrump and Death Valley was awesome. He made the trip so interesting and was always making sure we were all well hydrated due to the extreme heat we encountered. At every stop we made on the tour we always had time to take plenty of photos and Khriss was there if we ever had any questions,and he always knew the answers
This excursion was incredible and I would enthusiastically recommend it. The tour guide Justin was a geologist and very knowledgeable about the area and its natural history. The desert and the park itself were magnificent. It was the highlight of my recent trip to Vegas. It's a day trip that lasts roughly 8 A.M.-6 P.M.
I was going to drive to Death Valley while visiting Las Vegas but decided to take this day tour instead. I was very pleased with my choice. We had a small group of 4 plus the guide and rode in a very comfortable van. The hotel pick up and drop off times were prompt. The guide, Jenny, was very informative. She was a huge wealth of information. Death Valley was in the middle of a super bloom which I understand only happens every 10 years or so. We got to see the blanket of wildflowers as a result. Jenny provided unlimited bottled water and the lunch provided was very good. I was very pleased with this tour and highly recommend it.
I booked the Death Valley One Day Tour for my cousin (once removed) visiting from Japan. Although it took a while to get connected on the phone to confirm the availability (I got voice message many times), once I'm connected on the phone it was nice and easy to book. Most importantly, my cousin was impressed with their tour and said that was the best day of his stay in the U.S. He said tour was great due to the amazing tour guide and his/her navigation skill. He also said it was way better than Grand Canyon Tour he took with another company and even recommended me to take the tour with this company. was happy to know that the company took great care of my relative who was coming far away. I will look forward for more business in the future.
We booked the Death Valley trip on our recent visit to Las Vegas. Pickup was prompt, and our guide, Justin, was able to keep up a very interesting commentary thru the trip. It's about a two hour drive to the park, with a stop in Pahrump for drinks and such. Lunch is included at the Furnace Creek Resort. We made several stops during the tour thru the Valley, including Zabriskie Point and Devil's Golf Course. Overall, a really good tour. Great way to spend a day outside of Vegas and see something almost unworldly.
The Death Valley Tour with Jennie Dufour was an eye-opening experience. Our guide Jennie shared her extensive knowledge about the area's history and geology, which made the tour even more insightful and inspiring than we had expected. It was also very well-organised from a logistics perspective. We would have stayed and go on more tours with this tour operator and Jennie, but we had to go home... We highly-recommend this tour to everybody.
Yesterday my husband and I went on the day tour of Death Valley. All I can say is awesome!!! Our tour guide, Michael, was not only extremely knowledgeable, he was very personable and easy and fun to be with. Great tour, I highly recommend it, especially if Michael is your guide!!!
I loved this outing. The mini bus was immaculate, the driver/guide Mike was perfect - you can tell he loves what he does and knows everything about everything. The other travelers were fun, the sandwich lunch surprisingly very good, and Death Valley was spectacular. It was the perfect day trip and I was impressed enough that I will head back to do the 3 day parks trip. This outfit is top notch!
This was expected to be a highlight of our trip to Las Vegas and it sure was! Pick-up was punctual froma local hotel. The drive in the mini-bus was comfortable. We had pit-stops for refreshments and restrooms. The packed lunch was very good. Our tour guide and driver was outstanding- friendly, knowledgeable and humerous. One of the best guides we have ever had over the years (and I am well traveled). The sights on this trip are beyond description. This is one of those rare places on this planet where you are held in total awe at the sights before you. How anyone can visit Las Vegas and not take time to see the Valley is beyond me. The tour company made the day a trip i shall never forget and if I ever return yo the area I will be sure to use them again for other tours. 10/10 guys!
Peter was a terrific tour guide. He clearly enjoyed leaning new information and sharing his knowledge with visitors. He was extremely patient in letting the 4 of us explore drop-off sites at our own pace. Thanks to Peter, I have a new appreciation for red, green, and yellow rock strata, gigantic salty underground aquifers, and geologic time.
I did two tours with this tour company - the 3 day national parks (camping option) and the ghost towns day trips. Jen Barnes was the tour guide for both and she is incredible - friendly, knowledgeable and super organized! Both trips pack in a lot so you'll be exhausted but it's well worth it. Amazing how much we manage to see given the limited time. I'd highly recommend both tours and will use this company again. Best tour operator I've ever used, hands down. Thanks Jen and the tour company! :-)
I took the Death Valley National Park day trip. Jennie our guide was great, very knowledgeable about the history of Las Vegas as well as the history of Death Valley. We got to see several spots with plenty of time to look about and take pictures. I would recommend this tour and company for a great time, great guide, and great value!
This tour is a must see. Absolutely amazing and stunning. Still blown away by the beauty of Death Valley. Our tour guide, Kris, was so passionate and knowledgeable. He made the tour stunningly exciting. Xxx
Chris, the tour guide was awesome.He always pointed out the important spots and told us a lot of information about every single stop. It is a really personalized experence; just 4 of us in total. The tour included an exquisite vegetarian sandwich.
