    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Pass By: The Las Vegas Strip, S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89109, USA

    After a pickup from a Las Vegas hotel, set out to one of the hottest places in the world — Death Valley. Sometimes referred to as 'Mars on Earth,' the amazing diversity of this park is often unappreciated.

    Stop At: Badwater Rd. 19 mi south of Furnace Creek, Death Valley National Park, CA 92328

    Spend approximately four hours in the park. Stop at the Badwater Salt Flats, which marks the lowest point in the Western Hemisphere at approximately 280 feet below sea level. The Badwater Salt Flats also boasts the hottest recorded temperatures on earth, taken in 1913.

    Duration: 20 minutes

    Stop At: Furnace Creek Visitor Center, California Highway 190, Death Valley National Park, CA 92328

    Next, tour the Borax Museum at Furnace Creek Ranch, the oldest structure in Death Valley.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Artists Palette, 11 mi south of Furnace Creek off Badwater Road, Death Valley National Park, CA 92328

    Also, make photo stops at the Artist's Palette.

    Duration: 20 minutes

    Stop At: Zabriskie Point, Route 190, Death Valley National Park, CA 92328

    See the beautiful color the desert has to offer such as the Zabriskie Point badlands. Views of Twenty Mule Team Canyon and the Funeral and Black Mountain Ranges will round out the tour.

    Duration: 20 minutes

    Stop At: Highway 190, Death Valley National Park, CA

    On the return trip to Las Vegas, journey through Death Valley Junction, home of the Amargosa Opera House and Hotel. Built between 1923-1925, the opera house did not blossom until Marta Becket — an actress, opera singer, painter, and builder — made it her home and canvas, which is evident throughout the building. Round-trip transportation, plus lunch, snacks, and bottled water are provided.

    Duration: 3 hours

    I had expected Death Valley to be one empty wilderness. How wrong I was. There are so many points of interest and great histories a full day trip just doesn't do the vast area justice. Our Driver /Guide was James Phelps who vast knowledge of the area is only matched by his

    This was my fifth tour with these folks. Three trips from Phoenix and two from Las Vegas. I’ve had a different tour guide on each trip and they were all excellent. Greg was our tour guide for this tour and he did a great job. They offer a snack for breakfast, and plenty of water

    Taking a walk across the salty surface of the lake towards a mirage (I think) of water when it was so hot it was difficult to breathe makes you realise that there are some places in the world where, that they are real, suspends belief. This was a truly incredible place to visit.
