Full description

Enjoy the scenic outdoors and rugged extremes of the western United States with a visit to Death Valley. Sample local treats and see Dante's View, Badwater Basin, and the Mesquite Flat Sand Dunes.

Begin your adventure with a pickup at your Las Vegas hotel and head out into the desert. Depending on your fellow adventurers, you may be able to request a customizable itinerary.

As you drive, stop to explore the famous ghost towns of the Wild West, including Rhyolite, which came into prosperity in 1904 when gold was found. Pay a visit to the Goldwell Open Air Museum with its local oddities.

Next, enter Death Valley, with a stop at Hell's Gate. Head out to the Mesquite Flat Sand Dunes. Trek through the sand where Star Wars characters once walked, then take off to Furnace Creek Visitor Center, where the highest-ever temperature was recorded. Ask the park rangers questions or pick up a souvenir.

Finally, visit Badwater Basin, with the lowest elevation in North America (282 feet below sea level) and then Zabriskie Point. Snap a selfie in the 150-mile-long park, a swirl of colors in the background.

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.

This is the best tour I have ever taken and a great bang for the bucks. I have traveled all over the world and Death Valley has been the greatest surprise. DV is so exquisitely beautiful and there is so much to see. Our driver and tour guide Brian of Mojave Wave LLC., was so knowledgeable, kind, and so willing to make sure everyone on the tour was happy and all our needs were met. Included in the tour was this great lunch at the Toll Road restaurant in Death Valley. The cowboy burger was the bomb and I had the best cup of coffee since I hit Vegas. From Dante’s Peak to Hell’s Gate to the ghost town of Rhyolite to Area 51 our guide was able to answer all of our questions and make this tour completely enjoyable and interesting. If it couldn’t get any better it did. We had so much from with Sylvia and David from North Carolina and Yen a student from Georgetown University. Book with tour guide Brian for a great trip.

This is a wonderful trip that I highly recommend. Our guide, Jason and our driver, Brian were great. Jason was so knowledgeable. We’ve (wife and I) have taken quite a few tour trips here and abroad and find them much more relaxing than trying to drive ourselves. The bus was comfortable and we learned as we rode. This was a very good experience that is recommended very highly. PS: price was fair and the included lunch was wonderful.
