We had an amazing time; Darrell was a blast I would highly recommend requesting him if they do that... He was very knowledgable and had a great sense of humour. You will find the value for this attraction very worth while.

We had an amazing tour with Blackfeather during our San Andreas Fault tour. The beauty of the desert fault zone, natural pathways carved amongst the rocks and the education we learnt about the desert, the fault zone, the oasis, the various palm tree species and other wildlife made for a tremendous experience.

This was my 6th or 7th tour in the past 12 years and I have to say you have NOT truly experienced Palm Springs and the Coachella Valley if you haven't taken their San Andreas Fault Tour. I try and get as many of my friends who visit the area to take it and they are always wowed. Not only... More

Our "Indian" guide, Darrell, a.k.a. Blackfeather, took our party of 4 in an open topped jeep for a desert adventure. Darrell was incredibly knowledgeable about all the desert plants and fauna, and animals with a great sense of humor he described all of the nature trail we visited in both scientific terms and Latin. He was a terrific historian of... More

Our family of four decided to venture out into the desert heat and learn a bit about an area completely different from any other we'd seen...and we were glad we did!

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.
