Backcountry trips for non-4x4 drivers

Hi all - I've been to Death Valley several times (every time I make a trip to Vegas, I always make a voyage to Death Valley) and love it there, and I would like to see the 4x4 only areas sometime. The problems? First, getting a 4x4 that I can take off paved roads will be difficult. Second, I have zero experience with that kind of driving.

Considering those two items, I think it's highly unlikely I'll ever have the opportunity and have enough experience with 4x4 driving that I could make that kind of a trip myself, so I was wondering if there are any tours that are offered by experienced backcountry drivers?

I'd like to get this information for future reference... I just got back from Vegas a couple of weeks ago, so I won't be going back until at least next year, but being in Death Valley again made me hunger for those backcountry roads!
