I am going to be heading to LA and Las Vegas later in the year, but want to do a bit of travel to surrounding areas. My thoughts have been to see the Grand Canyon, and also Death Valley. I have read a bit in some guide books, and can't find anything on getting to Death Valley. Is it possible to reach Death Valley using some form of public transport from either LA or Las Vegas, or is the only realistic option to hire a car (which I can't do)?

Thanks for your help.

Unfortunately, the only way to get to Death Valley is by car.

Most people drive through as fast as they can during the Summer months where it's not unusual to see temperatures in the 120's F

I am pretty sure you can take a tour bus from Vegas to Death Valley. I will send you a PM tomorrow on times/rates.
