“Tour guide Cindy was charming!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

We took the Skyline drive with Cindy. She was terrific, funny, charming, knowledgeable. Had a wonderful time helping her (ha ha) maneuver some of those narrow roads to the inland! We were lucky to see a few bison on our tour as well, so all in all, it was a wonderful experience. Thank you Cindy for making our expedition a treat.

“Inland Motor Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

Beautiful scenery and plenty of wildlife made this tour well worth the time and money. The bus was comfortable, made a large loop to the Two Harbors area including an overlook of a winery and the "Airport in the Sky." Our guide Charles was very knowledgable and able to answer tourists questions. His presentation was remarkable. Strongly recommend the 2- 3 hour Inland Motor Tour.

“Cindy Lowe Rocks!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

We took the East End Tour with Catalina Expedition tour guide, Cindy Lowe. She was fun, knowledgeable, funny (with really bad jokes thrown in) and didn't fail to provide some great hair-raising driving in the hills overlooking both sides of the island. Rip-roaring, thrill-seeking adventures will not be disappointed by this trip and tour guide as you zip around the back country of Catalina in a Hummer. This enjoyable 2 hour trip is well worth your money and time. Cindy also has very nice voice -- check her out on YouTube!

“Inland Expedition”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

The tour guide THERESA was excellent, humorous, and knowledgeable. She did a terrific job - rate her EXCELLENT. In addition to her guidance, she worked very hard to safely maneuver the bus on difficult roads. She made stops to allow us to see special things - like the bison - and take photos.

“Zip Line Eco Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

Thrilling, safe and fun! Our guides Dan O and Nash made us feel safe and secure. Top notch equipment. Aside from the fun of zipping from platform to platform we learned a few things about the island as well.
