We were lucky to select Bindlestiff Tours for a day trip to Death Valley from Las Vegas.
Bindlestiff was formed by several guides from other tour companies that wanted to focus on affordable small group adventure tours that would enable them to deliver a quality experience. We can say that they met all of our expectations and more. Our guide, Chris, has 9 years of experience guiding in the Southwest US, Alaska and Australia and was an encyclopedia of information on the area. The trip took approximately 2 hours from the Strip and although there were only 3 couples on our trip, the van could have comfortably taken four. The tour concentrated on the Furnace Rock area, kept a good pace and requests for photo stops were encouraged – although Chris was on target both with his selection of stops as well as the time of day we visited them. Left the Strip at 8:15 am from our hotel and we were back by 5:30 (a tour is unlikely to include sunrise and sunset like a photo tour/workshop but we were really looking for an overview of an area that we had never been before on a limited time schedule). Bindlestiff has single and multi-day tours that leave from Las Vegas to such other nearby areas as the Grand Canyon, Zion and Bryce as well as Los Angeles and San Francisco. They frequently put together custom tours to include other National Parks as well.
We would use them again without hesitation.
