My wife and I had a great tour under the stars with Desert adventures. I was expecting John Wayne to ride in on his horse.Teri our guide was great.Walking into the canyons in the fading light was incredible.Watching the stars in total darkness was awesome!!! The tour wasn't cheap but well worth it. Not to be missed

My wife and I took this tour on May 21, 2015 @ 1pm. We ended up with the worst excuse for a tour guide. Russell, not sure of his last name, was a self confessed "thick skinned" from "Chicago". He had previously had a run in with a geologist and it was obvious he had a dislike for them. It... More

Thank you for taking the time to post a review. I am sorry to hear your comment about our guide. I think the point he was trying to make was, if you are going to videotape someone it would be courteous to ask that person first, before they turn around and have a video camera pointed at them.

Leave the golf clubs in the trunk and take a break from getting sunburned by the pool to do something totally different in Palm Desert. You won't regret it. Little did we know that the San Andreas fault was just a few miles away from I-10 as we have been racing past at 75 MPH all these years. Thanks to... More

We go on these adventures in most of the cities we visit. This one was one of the most outstanding, mostly due to the wonderful guide, Scott. He was most professional and very knowledgeable guide in the area. We had an exciting time plus we felt very safe. A must experience.

My parents and I had such a great time on the San Andreas Fault Jeep Eco Tour! Our guide Jim was a fountain of knowledge on such a wide array of topics and shared so much interesting information with us. He even had props to go along with the stories, as well as maps and up-to-date earthquake data printouts. We... More

I had never been to the Coachella Valley and am very interested in Geology, so this was my first choice of activity. I'm so glad I booked the tour. Darryl was a fabulous guide, extremely knowledgeable and funny. I loved exploring the fault gouge area and learning about the indigenous people, too. Well worth the price.

This was the highlight of our visit to the Coachella Valley. Our guide, Jeri Barry, was FANTASTIC! Her knowledge was very deep and was presented very well. She fed us enough information, but never too much. She was very helpful with photos, or with those who needed any help. I suspect all of the guides do a fine job, but... More

Let me say that this was a great experience for our family of 4! Our 11 & 8-year kids loved it! The San Andreas Fault Tour was very educational, but it was a lot of fun! The highlights of the tour was visiting a Desert Oasis, a mock Cahuilla Indian village, Panning for gold, hiking to the Andreas Fault Line... More

If you want to learn something about the palm desert basin, this is the tour. I really loved all the details about the San Andreas fault and driving through the "fault gouge". Darrel was great as a guide, funny, smart, and very informative. He touched on the history of the basin, tectonic plates, water issues, native palm tree Oasis, and... More

Me and my 3 girlfriends have traveled all over the world together, and this was one of our favorite tours. Informative, beautiful, and fun. We especially loved learning about the stars and constellations. Tom was an excellent guide. I can't wait to bring other guests back on this tour. It was fantastic!
