Four of us spent a lovely afternoon with our jeep driver Juan rambling over the Catalina interior. It's the best way to see the island with all it's beautiful views, beaches and animals. Having lived on the island for 40 years, he knew exactly where to find the herds of Bison that inhabit the interior. We even came face to face with one on the road. My only word of advice is that it is really a 4 person jeep. The 2 extra seats in the back would only be good for kids not adults. Great tour!!

Simple and easy to make reservations beforehand. The driver arrived early and was great! Told me about the island and some interesting sites. Good service to get around

My wife and I had a nice fun afternoon touring around Catalina with Allan in his jeep. He has lived on the island for 20+ years and was very knowledgeable and a nice guide. Unfortunately the tour was called the Bison Jeep Tour yet we only saw one bison by himself grazing, and almost no other wildlife. The time spent at the airport also was not necessary but we still had a nice time and I definitely recommend doing a tour, but no more than 2 1/2 hrs, perfect length.

We had a wonderful private tour of the island -- city and the interior. The island is beautiful and our tour guide, Paul, was fantastic! His in-depth knowledge of the history of the island was very much appreciated. He was also very kind. We thoroughly enjoyed our day!
