About Southwest Adventures Day Tours
Southwest Adventures offers adventure camping tours in and around the national parks of Southern and central California. The tours are a combination guided excursion mixed with a road trip with friends; everyone helps around camp and are encouraged to explore each unique location for themselves by choosing from the many hikes and activities available. The result is a great shared experience that is also uniquely personal for each participant. Equipment and food is provided, but we rely on our customers to bring a desire and willingness to share, create and explore with each other.

We had wonderful adventures, and saw EVERYTHING on this tour. Our guide, Shybree, went above and beyond taking good care of us. She took us for supplies and meals in-between all the adventures. The tour was a good mix of sightseeing and physical activity. There was ample time to enjoy the parks. The tour bus was comfortable. We had a great group.

I normally avoid group tours and this time it was the only option due to a tight schedule. Still, I very much enjoyed the trip. One day is a very short time, yet we could pack in a couple interesting hikes, the Noah Purifoy museum, and a visit of Pioneertown. The small group tour was very well organized and did not have the tiresome vibe of mass tourism. Aaron was very well prepared; he is also a nice and interesting person to be around. I definitely recommend trips with SW Adventures!

I went for the Death Valley tour and it was simply great! I saw so many beautiful places and I learned more about the region and the animals that live there (we saw quite a few of them during the trip). Aaron is very kind, talkative and knowledgeable, which makes him a great tour guide and travel companion. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone, who wants to explore this part of California.

What a fantastic day! Joshua Tree is such a special place and this was the perfect day tour to learn more about the park. The morning included a few touristy stops and then we had time to chose our own lunch in the town of Joshua Tree. The best part of the day were the 2 hikes and sunset views in the afternoon. Aaron is very knowledgeable and cares a lot about his guests! I would recommend for anyone wanting to get a taste of the area and park. I want to go back already :)

This was so incredibly worth it! I travel to LA for work a lot and happen to have had a Monday appt, so I went early and spent the weekend on the overnight Joshua trip tour. This is a great way to check out Joshua Tree if you are a lone traveller or if you simply don't know how to navigate yourself around. The van is comfortable and Aaron was a great host- we made a bunch of cool stops along the way there and back, in addition to the incredible hikes within the park. His camping food was also excellent! This was well worth the money and time.
