This was booked through Viator and we thought it was reasonably good value - not a massive area but varied enough to be interesting

The 4 of us went on the "San Andreas Fault Jeep Tour" with Desert Adventure. I was interested in learning more about the San Andreas fault and wanted to check it out while visiting the Palm Desert area. We arranged a pick up at our hotel. The drive was punctual and showed up prior to the pick up time. We... More

My husband and I took our two kids on the San Andreas fault tour and had a great time. Morgan was an amazing guide with truly expansive knowledge. She taught us a lot in a very fun, interactive way. I was really worried about how the kids would do in the heat, but the provided water and snacks kept everyone... More

Although it was in the middle of the summer and therefore really hot, this was still a well worth adventure! Cheyenne, our tour guide, was very friendly and very knowledgeable about the area.

The guide was knowledgable and humorous. Had a great time and would do it again! Visited the San Andreas fault as well as a couple different oasis. Walked through a canyon (moderately strenuous).

I had explained the tours to my girlfriend, photos opps, the learning opps, the knowledge of the guide etc... so expectations were high.... More

Wanted to do this for quite some time...worth it totally. So interesting to learn about the San Andreas fault, the early history of explorers dying in the desert being saved by the Cuhuillo Indians, the replica village with ancient fish ponds, the oases where water comes through the the fault line, and the private access to places tourists cannot go....

We went on July 4th morning tour with two 10-years old twins. The trip was both fun and educational. We learned about the desert living and history. Good photo ops. We brought two misters (bought from Walmart near by for $9 each) with us to keep cool, so the heat didn't bother us at all. The peak temp today is... More
