2. From Las Vegas: Rhyolite Ghost Town Guided E-Bike Tour

Join a guided e-bike tour of Rhyolite, a short-lived town from the late Gold Rush era, on a day trip from Las Vegas with hotel transfers included. See empty hulks of a bank, general store, and train depot, as well as other ruins such as the Tom Kelly Bottle House and Goldwell Open Air Museum. Start the tour with a pickup from your hotel or casino in Las Vegas. Once at the starting point, meet your guide for a brief introduction and safety review of the e-bikes. Put on your helmet and knee pads, and start your e-biking adventure.

See the Tom Kelly Bottle House, restored for a Paramount Pictures film in 1926, and built entirely from 50,000 medicine, beer, and whisky bottles. After seeing the oldest and largest known bottle house in the United States, it’s time to move to the Goldwell Open Air Museum, an outdoor garden where 1984 Belgian artist Albert Szukalski created his rendition of The Last Supper sculpture. From there, ride your e-bike to the ruins of Railroad Depot, Caboose House, Porter Brothers Store, Rhyolite School, and Cook Bank. At the end of the bike tour, enjoy a box lunch and cold drinks before being driven back to Las Vegas.

My sister and I enjoyed our trip with Brian and Jason so much. They were very friendly and we learned a lot about the history of the area. We saw the key spots in Death Valley and surrounding area. We went s o many places during the tour that it saved my sister and me time because now we don't have to stop at those places on our outing today The bus was top notch and we were very comfortable. We also stopped for a nice breakfast that was included in our trip fee. I had never heard of Get Your Guide before but I am so glad I found this tour. Another plus is that they were so reasonably priced. I can't imagine getting a better value for our money.

Fantastic guide for the day, making sure we saw and experienced so much of the area in and around Death Valley. It was boiling hot (118F) and Brian offered us water at every stop. He was a great photographer ensuring we got some amazing pictures. It was meant to be a 10 hour trip but we were out for 16 hours, seeing a beautiful sunset over the mountains, returning to Vegas in the dark seeing it all lit up in its glory! I totally recommend this company, you will not be disappointed!!

Absolutely charismatic driver and guide. Awesome views. And very comfortable bus. Before I already visited Death Valley with other agency and bus was awful. This bus has soft seats and a lot of space between seats

the guides were perfect, they catered in everything, praise, thank you for an amazing experience

Well looked after by Brian and Jason and the sights were spectacular
