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

My husband and I had a delightful day with Johnny. He was friendly, interesting, and passionate about sharing his knowledge of the strange and beautiful environment that is Anza Borrego. I highly recommend this experience.

Hiking, Jeep adventuring, fossil locating, star gazing, camping ... we did it all with Joe and his staff from California Overland Jeep Tours at their spectacular base in Clark Homestead. Our group of Dads and kids have had many camping adventure over the years, but our weekend with Joe was one of the most memorable. Highlights included two nights camping,... More

Thanks to Joe for guiding us round in his army truck/bus! It was perfectly aimed at our group - moderate walking and a teeny bit of clambering around rocks involved. can't say too much as wouldn't want to spoil it, but be in touch with them on email they'll let you know what you want to know and are very...

Joe was an excellent and knowledgeable guide on our recent day tour to Split Mountain and the Wind Caves. Anza-Borrego is starkly beautiful. Thanks, Joe!

We discovered Joe and his desert tours in December 2012, spent two fascinating days with him - and vowed to return! In December 2013 we were back, eager to see more of the staggeringly beautiful desert landscape. Last year Joe had patiently shown us the vast dry Clark Lake, the amazing views of the Borrego Badlands from Font's Point, driven... More
