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!

Took this with family recently. Phenomenal through and through. Tom, our guide knew everything about the area, commerce,ecology,wildlife, anthropology, and natural history. He gave us time for ample questions, and showed us an amazing variety of natural things. He drove safely and got us back in time. I would highly recommend this.

This is my second time on this tour. The first was with my husband almost a year ago. We loved it. This adventure was with my 12 year old. Our guide was incredible - intelligent, energetic, caring. Created a great memory and my daughter loved it. She was able to relate to everything she learned in 6th grade - totally... More

He explained everything we were seeing and had us laughing with his funny food analogies which really helped us understand the geology of the... More

My 84 year old mother, 2 of her friends, and I went on a private stargazing/evening tour around the fault. Carrie was our guide and we could not have been more thrilled with the experience. Carrie is incredibly knowledgeable and a wealth of information. She has lived here for 22 years and clearly loves this job. Her enthusiasm and love... More

We had a great experience with Darrell, a very knowledgeable guide. He took the time to explain the plates, the fault, the fauna, the palms, etc. We found good value form the money.
