Tour Details

Meet your Certified Guide, hop into our luxurious Tour Trekker vehicle and get ready for a once-in-a-lifetime expedition. Don’t worry about the details; we’ve already packed lunch and bottled water, plus paid your park entrance fees.

On the way to Death Valley National Park, your expert local guide will share insights into the area’s climate, history, wildlife and terrain. From its elevation to its temperature, this incredible area is a land of unique extremes. A quick stop at the quirky Area 51 Alien Center gives you a chance to collect fun, Area 51-themed souvenirs.

Rhyolite ghost town and Goldwell Open Air Museum await your arrival. Abandoned long ago, the shells of the town bank and railway station remain to spark your imagination.

From Rhyolite, a stop at “Hell’s Gate” dramatically reveals a panoramic view of Death Valley National Park. Don’t let the name fool you—Death Valley is alive, and for mind-blowing reasons to be discovered once you enter the park.

Learn about the endangered Desert Pupfish as you walk along the Salt Creek Boardwalk. The creek is often squirming with fish during the spring mating season.

Stops at the Borax Works Historic Mining site and Death Valley Visitor Center reveal how life has been sustained in this land of extremes. These stops include museums and a gift shop.

At Badwater Basin, you can stand at the lowest point in the western hemisphere, 282-feet below sea level. Capture photos standing by its famous elevation sign. Your guide will explain how the remarkable altitude and terrain affect the weather to create one of the hottest places on the planet. (Don’t worry, our tours take place in the milder temps of September through May.)

Tens of thousands of years ago, Badwater Basin was an ancient inland lake that eventually evaporated, leaving behind the otherworldly salt pans that exist today. Take the boardwalk but don't forget your sunglasses! The white salt fields are blinding under the sun. On warm days, you may even hear the pops and squeaks of salt crystals bursting. 

Next, capture the stunning rainbow hues of the Artist’s Palette and visit a stately historic hotel built in 1927—The Oasis at Death Valley. At Zabriskie Point, you'll marvel at what appears to be rolling waves of rock and another surprising vista of Death Valley.

Your tour culminates with a mild off-road driving tour of Twenty Mule Team Canyon through the multi-colored badlands recognizable from early Star Wars films. After an eventful day and luxury ride home, you'll be back at your hotel in time for dinner and the Vegas nightlife.
