This is the best tour I have ever taken and a great bang for the bucks. I have traveled all over the world and Death Valley has been the greatest surprise. DV is so exquisitely beautiful and there is so much to see. Our driver and tour guide Brian of Mojave Wave LLC., was so knowledgeable, kind, and so willing to make sure everyone on the tour was happy and all our needs were met. Included in the tour was this great lunch at the Toll Road restaurant in Death Valley. The cowboy burger was the bomb and I had the best cup of coffee since I hit Vegas. From Dante’s Peak to Hell’s Gate to the ghost town of Rhyolite to Area 51 our guide was able to answer all of our questions and make this tour completely enjoyable and interesting. If it couldn’t get any better it did. We had so much from with Sylvia and David from North Carolina and Yen a student from Georgetown University. Book with tour guide Brian for a great trip.

This is a wonderful trip that I highly recommend. Our guide, Jason and our driver, Brian were great. Jason was so knowledgeable. We’ve (wife and I) have taken quite a few tour trips here and abroad and find them much more relaxing than trying to drive ourselves. The bus was comfortable and we learned as we rode. This was a very good experience that is recommended very highly. PS: price was fair and the included lunch was wonderful.

Normally I don't like to write reviews, but I have to recommend this tour to everyone. Brian was the best guide I have ever met, he would answer all your questions and always tried to make sure we experienced more during the tour. Death Valley is a great place to visit, especially when you look down at Dante View.

Awesome time! A lot of fun with a great guide and great driver! We saw more interesting sights than expected! I definitely recommend this tour. Excellent lunch included too at a very nice spot.

A comfortable, casual, informative trip to a remarkable place. Our guide Jason was well informed and took care of our every need.
