An eight-hour desert tour, the Death Valley with China Ranch plus Stargazing Adventure introduces the history, geology, and landmarks of the dry-desert region. Starting at 2 p.m. and ending at 10 p.m., tours start at the Strip and venture to Old Spanish Trail, where the tour guide shares stories from the trail's lore. Then, a leisurely visit to the historic desert oasis China Ranch leaves plenty of time for taking photos and trying to make one of the stern cacti crack a smile before the tour moves on to noteworthy scenic locales such as the Devil's Golf Course, Artist Palette, Badwater, and Dante's View. At nightfall, the drive back to Las Vegas allows opportunities to stargaze as guides provide telescope equipment and help chart the celestial panorama. When the constellations give way to the neon lights of the Strip, the expedition concludes with a dinner. Light snacks and bottled water are provided throughout the tour.
