This was the best thing we did on our 12 day vacation to Southern and Central California. The tour guide was incredibly knowledgeable about the island and we learned so much from his information. The ride was in an open air vehicle and since we were "off road" for much of the time, it was really bumpy which may not be good for anyone with a bad back or someone older, but if you can stand the ride it was the thrill of a lifetime. The scenery we saw was breathtaking and things you can't see without going to the interior part of the island. We saw bison, a bald eagle, and mountains and beaches that were beautiful beyond words. If you only have time to do one thing during your time on Catalina, make sure you do this tour.

4plus hour backroad tour. We saw many bison and learned about the history of Catalina Island. The tour vehicle was a blast, looked like we were on safari. The best part was the tour guide Dave, he's been a guide on the Island 16 years ! The lunch was pretty decient. The tour is good for all ages, but maybe a little too windy and bumpy for some seniors.

I loved it even though it was really foggy when we went. We didn't have the greatest views. But our guide was still fabulous and we still saw alot of stuff including a lot of bison. The first hour or two were like a roller coaster ride. It was like being on a fanastic roller coaster for hours without having to get off and line up again. The company will actually refund your money if the weather is bad--so you don't get ripped off. I can't wait to go back and do this tour when its sunny and clear.
