Farabee’s is so much more than just an awesome business! They have a reputation of “truly taking care of people”! We experienced that first hand! We did not even rent a Jeep from them because we have our own, but they took care of us as if we were family or their VIP customers. We slashed 2 tires on a remote road in Death Valley and had the wrong tire tools with us! Some very kind hearted people (now who will be lifelong friends) stopped and helped us. They told us about the “caring reputation” of Farabee’s! (Farabee’s even equips all renters with kits to assist others they may see in need on the road ... AMAZING!) These kind people drove us over an hour to a hotel in Furnace Creek and the next morning we knocked on Farabee’s door before they opened! The owner Richard, and his family took such good care of us! They dedicated the best part of their day to us! Ryan Farabee, loaded up his truck with every imaginable tool and several spare tires. Drove us over an hour away to our impaired vehicle! He changed our tires, then made sure we got back safely! Then he sold us a complete set of used wheels and tires in great shape, installed them and got us back on the road in short order! They could have charged us a fortune for all they did... but as it turns out what we paid was a fraction of a fraction of what it would have been to call on a tow service and a fraction of what we expected or would have paid at our local tire place back home! (The Ranger had actually told us to expect to pay over $2000 for a tow! Woah!) The world would be a better place if there were more people like the Farabee’s! They are the salt of the earth kinda folks and will take good care of you and yours! And by the way, most tires and vehicles are not made for some of these remote roads in Death Valley! The rocks are as sharp as knives! We have a new and tough Jeep Gladiator, but not the special tires needed to take on these rocks! Do yourself a favor, rent a Farabee’s ... you will be way better off in the long run!

Very helpful and we could return the car at the drop-box after closing hours. And got to borrow a AUX-cable, quite good to have when traveling to the sailing stones! Couldn't ask for more! / Sweden

We always wanted to visit Death Valley but didn’t quite know what to see and how to see it. Renting a Jeep from Farabees was perfect and the highlight of our trip. We drove from Vegas (around 2 hours) and had the Jeep all day. The staff helped with a route for us and what to see and the time frames needed to travel the different trails. We did two recommended trails (Titus Canyon- must do!! And Warm Springs). We felt very safe and equipped with the Jeep as they give you an emergency phone device and a cooler with water. We also visited Rhyolite (must do), Artists Palette, Badwater Basin, and the Devils Golf Course. They allow 200 miles a day/ 50 cents per mile after that. I think they should allow a little more than that as we did go over, but it was worth it! They allow you to keep the Jeep until 6am the next morning. Also, remember to purchase your Death Valley Park pass for $25 at the visitors center or there are a couple self pay stops along the road. Highly recommend and so much fun!!

I volunteered in Death Valley NP for 2 months this winter, and twice I rented a little (red of course) 2 door 4x4 jeep for a day, from Farabee's at Furnace Creek near where I was staying. It was AWESOME, and I highly recommend it to anyone comfortable driving on dirt roads, enjoying amazing views, and having an element of risk in their adventures! The risk can be very low, if you plan the roads you are going to drive with that in mind. But that's so not me, and I'm quite comfortable with solo adventure treks, so away I went for 2 of the best days I spent while in the park! Farabee's provides you lots of help and support. They go over your travel plans on a map with you, and even give you a satellite radio transmitter in case you really get into trouble, plus lots of advice and a cooler with ice and bottled water. I think my favorite roads were Titus Canyon (Leadfield Mine was really interesting, so was the petroglyph and the spring) and Echo Canyon (be sure to go all the way past Inyo Mine to the end of that road and check out the view back towards the Sierra, and watch for the "needle rock" on your way back). The road to the Wild Rose Charcoal Kilns was a close second, be sure to go out to Agerraberry Point off of the Emigrant road too, the view from this point is absolutely amazing. I did go out to the Racetrack, and I was glad I did but, while it is interesting, it is a long drive most of which is not that exciting.

Hello, we rented a jeep for 1 day ( to visit some remote trails you need a high clearance + heavy duty tires). The price is correct since it include a spot satelitte emergency kit (if you are in trouble, they come to help you), a cooler with water. And if you arrive after closing hour (5 pm), you just have to drop the key in the dropbox. Finaly the staff is great, they give us excelent advise. In 1 day we did the Titus canyon road and the Echo canyon road (realy need a 4x4 to do this one).
