I would give this tour 20 out of 10 if I could. Death Valley is a breathtaking natural miracle in and itself. However, Brian and Jason made all the difference. Jason's witty jokes, Brian's sincerity made this one of my most memorable tours so far. Unlike other tours, Brian and Jason intentionally try to get to know their guests. They stopped at so many magnificent stops that I it felt like I have seen most of the park. They went out of their way to make us all feel accommodated. They will stop for lunch at a fancy historic restaurant. Flow of the day was natural, fun filled and informative. If you are planning on touring Death Valley, it should only be with them.

The driver was most kind and very nice. Gave me some good places to eat and try while visiting Vegas. The drive and going out to the location was awesome, a good relaxed drive. It was fun, good cool weather, clean van and excellent driver.

Was a great experience. Very smooth pick up and drop off. Lisa and Max made us feel very comfortable. Definitely recommend.

The booking was seamless. Staff was very friendly and the ride was great. I would do it again

Best tour ever with Mohave wave tours. Brian was excellent. Highly recommend this tour group
