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!!

The tour with Jason and Brian was exceptional. Jason provided a lot of information and history of the Death Valley. The day was really fun. They took us to see some secret spots too. I highly recommend it.

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
