Amazing and surprising scenery .....surpassing all my expectations. Tour guide Ralph was a fount of knowledge ... He tells stories about Geology that's my thing so I was very pleased about that , flora and fauna , American history and culture and all about Vegas. Although it's a long day and long drive 450 miles - we saw so much and it was really worth every cent.
Thanks for a great memorable day Ralph.

I loved this tour! It was 113 F and extremely hot, but the tour guide was fantastic and gave a brilliant tour of the area and took us to some great view points in the park. Breakfast and lunch was included and as much ice-cold water as we needed throughout the day. Our tour guide Jack made the tour especially enjoyable with his great sense of humour and vast local knowledge. We also visited a ghost town on the way to Death Valley which was fun and interesting. I would highly recommend this tour, it was great!
