What people are saying about Death Valley National Park

For me, it was the best part of the whole Las Vegas trip. Rich our guide was so knowledgeable and the kids (2 5th grade girls and a sophmore in high school) just loved him One can tell that he's worked with kids. The ride up was beautiful and there were many stops along the way -just so much to see! I liked seeing the ghost town, Rhyolyte. The girls liked playing in the sand at Mesquite Flats Sand dunes. My husband liked seeing the lowest point in North America 282 feet below sea level with the salt plains and Badwater Pool. And the boy liked lunch (of course) at the visitor Center. I liked the way we traded seats so that people in the back had an opportunity to sit near the front to get different views.

Very nice guide and knew the whole valley very well. He gave us very good explanations and always offered us water. It was just what I expected. As for the valley, it is worth seeing but beware of the sun. It is better to go covered and with sun cream.

Absolutely charismatic driver and guide. Awesome views. And very comfortable bus. Before I already visited Death Valley with other agency and bus was awful. This bus has soft seats and a lot of space between seats

Full day and full of activities. The guide and driver know their business and make it interesting.

the guides were perfect, they catered in everything, praise, thank you for an amazing experience
