I would give this tour 20 out of 10 if I could. Death Valley is a breathtaking natural miracle in and itself. However, Brian and Jason made all the difference. Jason's witty jokes, Brian's sincerity made this one of my most memorable tours so far. Unlike other tours, Brian and Jason intentionally try to get to know their guests. They stopped at so many magnificent stops that I it felt like I have seen most of the park. They went out of their way to make us all feel accommodated. They will stop for lunch at a fancy historic restaurant. Flow of the day was natural, fun filled and informative. If you are planning on touring Death Valley, it should only be with them.

I NEVER write reviews, but I had to type a few words to help others pick the right tour guide. Don't waste time looking up other companies - this is the real deal. The bus was new and very clean, the tour was very interactive; I actually learned a few interesting history facts. These guys are very well-informed and I think it's because they're passionate about what they do. But the reason I decided to write a review is because they actually truly care about every single tourist on the bus . They make you feel special and taken care of and they do it with very positive energy.

Normally I don't like to write reviews, but I have to recommend this tour to everyone. Brian was the best guide I have ever met, he would answer all your questions and always tried to make sure we experienced more during the tour. Death Valley is a great place to visit, especially when you look down at Dante View.

A comfortable, casual, informative trip to a remarkable place. Our guide Jason was well informed and took care of our every need.

I had a great time with Jason and Brian.Great trip I will be back .
