Tom alias "Rolling Thunder" is an awesome guide. His big booming voice, wealth of knowledge and self-depreciating humor made the time fly by. It was hard to tell who was having a better time the guide or the guided. Our home schooled kids were engaged the entire time as they soaked up the science and history lesson. Tom knows all... More

This is a great tour and really educational. It's amazing or see such different geological formations so close to home. Our guide Morgan was a goldmine of information - only wish I had recorded all she had to say1

I took my wife and two teenage children for the tour and we had a great time. We learned a lot from our tour guide Tom. Everything from history to agriculture to the water beneath the Palm Springs area. My son loved Tom's laser pointer. The jeep itself was perfect, a mid eighties red Jeep Renegade, it bought back good... More

It was a different part of the Palm Springs area that we have never seen and it turned out to be one of the highlights of our... More

This was such an excellent adventure starting at the arranged meeting spot. Our tour guide Tom was very knowledgeable about the areas formation & plant life. We were driven to a private 800 acre reserve where we stopped at an oasis. Tom explained the many uses of the vegetation surrounding us & where the small stream of the oasis disappears... More

We went on the San Andreas Fault tour with our guide,Bryce. This turned out to be a private tour- just the two of us and Bryce. He seemed to be very knowledgeable about the Coachella Valley from historical, geological, and naturalistic aspects. He answered our many questions about the area very thoroughly. Particularly interesting was his explanation of how the... More

She held our attention with a complete history of what we were seeing, described the vegetation in detail, and pointed out some truly amazing feats of mother nature. I am so glad we lucked out with such a... More
