Awesome 😎 experience
This was the best day tour by far that I have experienced. Chris, our guide was very knowledgeable and the way he tells stories on an upcoming attraction of the tour made our tour experience very interesting. I highly recommend taking this tour to fully understand and enjoy what Death Valley National Park has to offer. Lunch was great 👍

Paul arrived on time and with a great attitude. He knows very much about all the places we went. He also helped us to take photos. Although we were a small group, we had such a good time! I totally recommend this tour. The landscape was wonderful...you get disconnected from daily routine and discover peace in nature.

Small Group Pahrump Wine Tasting with Death Valley Sightseeing and Stargazing
It was my 21st birthday and our guide, Lorenzo, made it so memorable. Passionate about nature, Las Vegas, and getting the best photo, he was a joy to be around and I learned a lot. Lorenzo was personable, spontaneous and came off very experienced. Everything on the tour was very smooth and well timed, we felt very taken care of.

Small Group Pahrump Wine Tasting with Death Valley Sightseeing and Stargazing
Lorenzo was great and this tour is a must do! He explained the history of Vegas and the area very well and his jokes kept us entertained the entire time. The Artesian Cellars winery had great food and wine and a lovely gift shop. Death Valley was beautiful and the stars at night are life changing. Especially when it‘s a new moon. Be sure to bring a small fan, hiking shoes and dress for the heat. Lorenzo will take care of the rest.

1 Day Death Valley Small Group Guide Tour with Evening Sunset and Stars Viewing
This tour was wonderful and surprising. Our Tour guide Leo was very informative and took us to many different areas and vistas and was able to explain the history of it all. It was extremely hot (121 degrees) but well worth dealing with the heat. It is a true small group tour as our trip was just the 2 of us. Our tour guide knew so much about the area the history, and how to take the beat pictures. We stopped to see the amazing view of the stars and even saw shooting stars. Thank you Leo.

When to Get There

Many visitors purposely visit in summer simply to experience the extreme heat, but spring, fall, and winter are the recommended times of year to visit. Depending how much rainfall the park has had during winter and spring, wildflowers can bloom from late March to early April at low elevations, in April and May at mid elevations, and into June in the mountains.

Ghost Towns Near Death Valley

When the once-booming mining industry for materials such as gold, silver, and lead came to an end, miners and other locals escaped the area for other pursuits, leaving Death Valley with a handful of ghost towns. Rhyolite—once home to two churches and 50 saloons—is the best preserved and most popular, located just west of Beatty, Nevada. Panamint City, Ballarat, and Chloride City are also accessible on foot or by car.
