I would like to mention our guide and driver Sandy was exceptional. Pickup from hotel was on time and we left within 30 mins. Stopped on the way for breakfast- I was hungry, since i was the first one and Sandy assured me that she would stop before the drive to Death Valley Sandy was very knowledgeable about the history of Las Vegas as a city from its beginnings. Death Valley itself is stunning- bring a light jacket if visiting during Spring time as it can get cold and windy on the mountains. Death Valley itself was a pleasant 67 F. The drive smooth and I commend Sandy on being a careful driver since th roads can be very windy and undulating as well. The lunch she brought was delicious and the rest area for lunch was an oasis in the middle of the desert. On the way back we stopped at a charming gift shop with nice restrooms. Plenty of time was given at all the stops - note it is not possible to do everything within one trip.

We saw tons of stuff in Death Valley and Bin, our guide, even added a bonus stop at Artists Palette, where he also had to assist in rescuing a woman from the side of a mountain. She went up too far and couldn’t get down. Above and beyond!

Great tour. Our guide Bin was great. Communication the day before the tour was great. Great points made and lots of information.

Our guide, Jason, was super energetic and knowledgeable. He made the trip super enjoyable!!

Great day learning about Death Valley, seeing all the best places and sights.
