What an awesome trip! At first I thought the price seemed a bit steep, but considering the fact that I would have had to rent a car to get to Joshua Tree, the cost of entry, lunch and the wealth of knowledge that was included, this was well worth $200! Bob was a wonderful guide; so friendly and had answers... More

Thanks for your great review! Smart move to take a tour to JTNP, as it is so large and with the guide you can get a better understanding of the park. Glad you enjoyed your desert adventure. More

Five adult siblings/spouses took the San Andreas Fault/ Stargazing tour (second time for my wide & I) about a week ago. Our guide, Morgan, was fascinating and could not have been more knowledgeable. It was more than three hours of endless stories about desert plants, geology, & Native American culture while driving along the San Andreas Fault and through numerous... More

We loved our 3 hour private jeep tour into Joshua Tree National Monument from the rock back-country entrance! Our driver was extremely good at explaining geological formations and current issues that were surrounding us! Very worth the fee and time spent. Would highly recommend to company!

Not sure that this review belongs to us. We do not do Jeep tours into Joshua Tree N.P. We do not enter through the back country entrance. Our tours are 3 hours in the park but we conduct our tours in a SUV or mini van. You may want to double check the tour company you booked through and place... More

Our Naturalist Guide, Phil La Greca, shared his love and knowledge of the desert while providing a safe and fun ride through the desert canyons. Learning about the history of the area was very enlightening for this California native who didn't have a clue about how much natural life thrives in the desert.

For a desert diversion, I picked this tour because I found the off-road aspect appealing. I was not disappointed. The 31-year-old Jeep was a little rustic, but that's to be expected. I picked the San Andreas Fault tour, which went into the Fault area near La Quinta and explored former Cahuilla Indian settlements. We also walked into a nearby canyon.... More

Three of us took this fascinating tour of the San Andreas fault. Our guide Teresa was very knowledgeable and interesting. She said she had lived there all her life and she really knew what she was talking about. She pointed out plants, animals while taking us along the fault line. This was a great tour.

This tour ended up not being what I thought. I think I expected to see some gaping hole in the ground. It was enjoyable and very interesting to see the different wild flowers, slot canyons and palm trees. I think I could listen and be around Teresa all day. Such a beautiful and life loving person.

When we booked, we thought it would focus on the San Andreas Fault and to some extent, it did. Our guide, Bonnie, was knowledgeable and entertaining. Though mentioned, we didn't think we'd spend a significant amount of time at an Indian village re-created by the company. The stop at the oasis, a bit more informative. Off roading, was a short...

Thanks for your review. Per the narrative of the guide the majority of the tour takes place inside the San Andreas Fault zone. All of our marketing materials and the description by our reservationist talk about three primary areas that will be visited on the tour including the palm asis , Cahuilla Indian Village recreation and the tortured and twisted...
