This Death Valley Jeep tour begins with a hotel pickup in Las Vegas.

First, make a brief stop at the Furnace Creek Visitor Center to gather some maps for the journey. Browse some of the books for sale and collect a Death Valley stamp for a National Park passport, if desired.

From there, drive to the Badwater Basin, the lowest point in the Western Hemisphere at 282 feet below sea level. This surreal landscape at Death Valley features one of the largest protected salt flats in the world — too harsh for most plants and animals to survive in. Then travel down Badwater Road to the Devil’s Golf Course, a large salt pan on the floor of Death Valley, located in the Mojave Desert within Death Valley National Park. The rain and wind continually erode this region, shape-shifting the ground into different-looking terrain with the weather.

Finally, experience the most breathtaking view in Death Valley: Dante’s Peak, a mountaintop overlook more than 5,000 feet above the desolation of Death Valley. Pull out the smartphone or camera to capture the breathtaking panoramic views. Interestingly, on a clear day, Mount Whitney, the highest point in the United States, and Badwater Basin, the lowest point in the US, can be seen from here.

Along the way, learn about Death Valley’s history, landscape and wildlife, plus the urban legends of ghost towns and long-abandoned gold mines along the way.

Lunch is included, so please make a sandwich selection in the Special Requirements field at the time of booking. Choose from turkey, Italian, ham, deluxe turkey (with cranberry and stuffing) or veggie.

Notice: This tour is seasonal and only operates from September to May.

We had an amazing day with our guide Don Ritchey! This was a long tour but so worth it. We started around 6:30am for pick up and returned around 5:45pm. There are plenty of stops along the way for breaks. We even managed a quick stop at the "nut house"...great little candy store. The art exhibit in the middle of the desert was cool to see. Salt Creek Trail was beautiful with water you could hear trickling (in the middle of the desert!!!). Badwater Basin was beautiful to see while looking way up the mountain to see the sea level sign. My favorite was the artist palette. The colors were amazing and I'd love to hike there. We've done the Grand Canyon tour and the Death Valley Tour was my favorite by far. So much to see.

Obviously the landscape was amazing. What was a super plus was our guide, John. His knowledge of geology, the entire region, personality etc made him the only guide who should be conducting this tour. Looking forward to our next trip to Vegas and we’ll do the Grand Canyon with him.

It was a long day trip but very enjoyable. Our guide, Bob, was very knowledgeable and did a great job keeping you informed. You ride in a comfortable van where you have many stops along the way to see different sites, for bathroom breaksthere are many, and to take pictures. A boxed lunch is provided sandwich, chips, cookie, vegetables/cheese squares and they had a cooler filled with bottled water. I wore jeans, sneakers, t-shirt, hat, sunglasses and brought a light jacket that I ended up not needing. We went in November so that attire worked but if I was to go during the summer I would have worn shorts. It is family friendly. We had a very nice day and were glad we went. I have done many trips with Viator throughout the United States and in Italy and the tours booked through them have always exceeded my expectations. You can't go wrong booking tours with them.
