We live close to the area that they tour and saw the jeeps. We decided to check them out. Our adventure was so informative and fun. It is a must do when you are in the desert. Do not miss it. I really learned things about this area that l never knew. It is expensive, but worth it.

Our guide, Darrell, was unbelievable. Amazing knowledge of the Fault and the desert. He presented the facts in a fun way, and taught us so much about the flora, fauna, geology, and history of the Valley. It was our 4th San Andreas tour, and I would take the 5th tomorrow. We would recommend this trip for everyone.

We had a wonderful tour of the desert. Our Guide tailored the information to meet our needs. I had 4 of my home schooled children with me ranging in age from 8-12. We have been on countless tours around the U.S. This was the best. Our guide went above and beyond the basic tour to really delve deep into their... More

Our guide was Capt. Morgan. Yes her first name is Morgan. She is a wealth of information as she took us for our 3+ house jeep tour of the San Andreas Fault Zone. The information, which came consistently, ran the gamut from local Native American Indian tribes, to geology, plate tectonics, native vegetation, local characters, so forth and so on.... More

Jeri Barry was a wonderful tour guide! From the moment she picked up our group to the time she dropped us back at our hotel she supplied vast knowledge not only about the San Andreas Fault but all the vegetation,heritage, and culture that once settled there.

I went on the San Andreas Fault tour, with Terry as our very knowledgeable and affable guide. She drove us to see a palm oasis (water in the desert!), a re-creation of a desert Indian tribe’s habitat, and short hikes into the fault lines’ crevices. We could see geological history up close and personal. I never knew the desert contained... More

This was one of the best tours I have ever been on. Our guide, Morgan Levine was very knowledgeable not only on the San Andreas Fault but on the history of the Indians, Palm Springs and agriculture in the area. Enjoyed it and will do another tour with this company.

We learned a lot about the history and geological aspects of the faults. we were able to get right up to the fault line and witness the effects of earthquakes over many centuries. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and courteous.
