Rated 5 out of 5 by Filbert62 The Tour Is very Detailed
The guide's knowledge of the area and history were excellent.
This made the trip worthwhile.

Rated 2 out of 5 by CAtourist Very hurried tour
The tour guide was very friendly. and made many short stops (including some not-so-interesting ones at an abandoned mine city and a cemetery there etc) to view scenery. However, I do not recommend this tour because of the fact that it is a long ride and the time given at each stop was just around 10 minutes or so except at the tourist information center (1 hr) where there is nothing to do other than shop & watch a short presentation about Death Valley. There was very little time given even at Badwater basin (less than 10 minutes) and so we do not get time to absorb the beauty of nature and enjoy it in a leisurely manner. Indeed the scenery of the desert is wonderful and awesome. Considering the high cost of the tour, it is not worth it and it maybe better to rent a car and drive and stop at points of interest at your own pace.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Vegaslady1955 Best Tour of Death Valley in Las Vegas
This was the best tour for Death Valley. Part of the tour offered is Scotty's Castle but you must insist on it. This tour was worth every cent. We saw many, many things including Scotty's Castle. Thank you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Montreal expensive ride bus tour
1 hour at furnace crek musuem is too long, and we skipp Scotty Castle because the drivers said so, to have more times to see others things...OK , fair enough, but doesn't represent tour description , so reduce the price and say it at the beginning....not on the bus on direction of DV....But Jack the driver is a great asset, funny and know a lot of fact.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MartaV2891 Excellent tour, across dramatic scenery!
Great tour, in one day we covered all the Death Valley Park, including Scotty Castle. Our guide, Ralph, was excellent! knowledgeable, informative, flexible. We learnt so much, from geology to history, including Las Vegas story, on the way back. Also being in a small group (12 people) was great, we had time to make a lot of interesting stops and ask questions.
Only improvements suggestions, it will be better to indicate on the tour description the actual length of the tour, it took almost 14 hours, just to make sure people won't miss any show or dinner booked for the same night.

Rated 5 out of 5 by evilweevil Very informative
Great day trip and nice change from the bustle of Vegas. The guide was extremely knowledgeable and informative, and Death Valley is just a fascinating place. The only problem was that we couldn't visit Scotty's Castle because the road was still closed because of roadworks due to the flooding last fall. Not a big issue, but this should have been mentioned in the description.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Mightymite Was not accurate. Breakfast was not a buffet. No stop at Scotty's Castle, so lunch was not at the castle.
I felt the description of the tour did not accurately describe the actual tour. There was no buffet breakfast, we ate boxed breakfast on the bus. There was no trip to Scotty's Castle, so, no picnic lunch there. Instead, AGAIN, lunch was presented and eaten on the bus. I selected this tour because it included Scotty's Castle, had I known it was not part of the tour, I would not have gone. It was not what I expected. It had too many stops that amounted to little more than filling time because we did not go to the castle. Any changes to the itinerary that eliminate such a major part of the tour should be noted in the information when booking. The tour was definitely not what was advertised.
