My husband and I joined a family of 4 for a 2.5 hour tour that included a visit to a mud cave and an amazing view at Font's Point. There are less tours available during the summer (it was 108!) but Joe really made an effort to get us in! Joe was incredibly knowledgeable about the flora and fauna of... More

We enjoyed a fantastic morning with Joe and his Jeep exploring the Anza Borrego Park. The trip was as informative as the scenery was spectacular. Coming from New Zealand we got to experienced the desert like we never would back home. Joe was very friendly, knowledgable and great fun to be with. We highly recommend this adventure to anyone who... More

What an amazing adventure.We had a fantastic time exploring the desert with Joe. It was a down to earth, real experience - not touristy at all. The scenery was breath taking. I highly recommend it. Any Kiwis or Aussies out there -your will love this trip.

I came out west from NYC to celebrate my birthday in early April. Joe tailored the tour to my needs, particularly where photography was concerned. Had a great lunch in the canyon followed by a hike and some picture-taking and that was just to get started. Spent the rest of the day in his Super Jeep driving all over the... More

What a great find! My friend and I were looking for a desert adventure for the day and we found it with California Overland Jeep Tour and Joe our tour guide. He is a Indiana Jones meets Mad Max-esk guide who led us through the arid desert pointing out the cultural and landscape highlights, in an informative and relaxed manner.... More

This tour couldn't have been better, from the time we met Joe, who was so gracious, welcoming and knowledgeable, to the end of our incredible ride through the desert of Borrego. We learned so much about the area and saw some stunning views. We will definitely return, hopefully to do an overnight with California Overland.

I had always been curious about tours in the desert so I decided to do some research before my Spring Break trip to San Diego with my Family. Found great reviews on Trip Advisor for California Overland so I decided to contact them to find out more. Couldn't have been more pleased with the entire experience. Carey was extremely helpful...

California Overland Jeep Tours is by far the best tour to see the Anza Borrega Desert. What an experience we had. My husband and I and my 2 boys ages 9 and 14 had an amazing time. A memory we would never forget. Being from South florida and visiting California for the first time we wanted to go to the... More

Johnny was a great tour guide--accomodated his remarks when he learned we'd been in the desert a lot. Great concern over impending rain postponed our trip a day. No real rain, but we appreciated the care and concern. Forecast for rain changed the venue of our trip, but we hiked in a lovely slot canyon, took Truckhaven Trail to Fonts... More
