“Fun Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2010

4plus hour backroad tour. We saw many bison and learned about the history of Catalina Island. The tour vehicle was a blast, looked like we were on safari. The best part was the tour guide Dave, he's been a guide on the Island 16 years ! The lunch was pretty decient. The tour is good for all ages, but maybe a little too windy and bumpy for some seniors.

“I absolutely loved this tour.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2010

I loved it even though it was really foggy when we went. We didn't have the greatest views. But our guide was still fabulous and we still saw alot of stuff including a lot of bison. The first hour or two were like a roller coaster ride. It was like being on a fanastic roller coaster for hours without having to get off and line up again. The company will actually refund your money if the weather is bad--so you don't get ripped off. I can't wait to go back and do this tour when its sunny and clear.
