Highly recommend this tour for a relaxing but informative couple of hours. Never knew the desert could be so interesting. Their jeeps are well kept, cool rides. Guides seem to enjoy their job. Our guide, Dick, definitely knew his stuff and was a joy to be around.

My husband and I did the tour of the San Andreas fault through the valley. Amazing! the geology of the area is fascinating. Every time we drive through the area, we know why things look the way they do and why Palm Springs has so much water. A great day!

Our 3 kids - 13,11,9 - all enjoyed the San Andreas Fault tour! The guide, Greg, did a super job of engaging with them and sharing facts that we all found super interesting. From visiting an oasis and a village recreation to driving up and through the fault zone, it was a great experience and I'd highly recommend it. We... More

My partner and I had an incredible time with Lane as our guide doing the Red Jeep Tour. Lane's super positive energy and ability to educate us well on the geology, plant life and cultural components of the area, in addition to the breathtaking environment, made the experience outstanding. I've already recommend three friends to go online and book a... More

We had a great tour today. Love that the Jeep could fit 7 of us in one vehicle. Miss Morgan was knowledgeable and entertaining showing us the flora and fauna of the desert just outside of Palm Springs. Private land among rocks and canyons, natural oasis in what looks like nothing is actually really something and has been for 1000's... More

From the fun riding in the jeep, to the information that Kelly gave us about the dessert and the plates, she explained it so well. The oasis and the walk into the canyon was so amazing!

We went on the San Andreas Fault tour. Overall, it was a great experiences but the stories our guide told were a bit scary for young children. Perhaps they could tone down the stories a bit when younger kids are on the tour.
