We had six in our group which allowed us to make our tour private...just us. Our guide for the excursion was Russ Augustine, a multi-year veteran of Red Jeep tours in the area. We assumed that our day would largely be riding in the jeep and seeing the sights. With the private tour, we spent the majority of our time... More

Yesterday morning 4 of us (all senior citizens) took the San Andreas Fault Jeep Tour. Our guide was a very knowledgeable woman named Morgan. We were amazed that so much history was only 15 minutes by jeep from where we live in La Quinta. We were provided with water and granola bars and lots and lots of information about the... More

We spent the morning on a wonderful and informative trip to see the San Andres fault and surrounding area. Our guide Dori was extremely friendly and, more importantly,very knowledgeable about the area, including all of Coachella Valley. Highly recommend this tour and tour company.

My friend from back home and I went on the afternoon tour on March 28th. Morgan, our guide, had encyclopaedic knowledge of the valley, the geology of the fault and its impact on the Indio Hills. She was kind enough to take pictures of all the groups on her Jeep. The highpoint was scrambling through a slot canyon deep within... More

Our guide was very knowledgeable and adapted the tour based on the interests of the jeep's passengers., Scenic and loved the hike in a slot canyon at Painted Canyon. We were well taken care off with pre-trip information and throughout the tour as well. Thanks. Quirien

A group of 5 of our family went on a 4 hour Desert Adventure Jeep tour, but it was actually longer than 4 hours, as he did some extra touring. It was a fabulous day. Our guide, Jim was wonderful. He was very knowledgable and passionate with regards to everything about the tour. I had never been to Palm Springs... More

Took the "San Andreas Fault" tour with Phil. Loved the scenery, short walks into geological features, and especially loved experiencing the tastes and feel of desert plants. Phil was a delight. If all 20 something of their guides are as knowledgeable and as funny, this has to be one of the best tour companies running.

Took the Indian Canyon Tour with Carlos as our guide. We live in PS part-time and I wanted to introduce our grandsons from LA, to the area. All three of us had a great time and learned a lot. This is such a fascinating area: The geology and formation of the "valley", the fault lines, tectonic plates, the sheer beauty... More

This was the second time I went on this tour and cannot say enough good things about both our guide Carlos and the tour. The combination of history and geological information about the Andreas fault and rock formations is fascinating and the scenery is beautiful. Have come to a greater appreciate of the desert and the native people who lived... More
