We were on vacation in San Diego, and we wanted to see the California desert. Fortunately, we found California Overland in Borrego Springs.
Joe gave me great directions to and from Borrego Springs. The drive out there was so spectacular, I was thinking, Why am I going on a tour? But let me tell you, the tour was even better. And the drive back was beautiful too. So the whole day was fabulous.
Joe suggested we go to Julian, which used to be a mining town. It's really cute with some cute little shops and a lot of restaurants. We went to Mom's Pie Shop and had the best chicken pot pie in the world. Also, some fantastic three-berry pie with ice cream. Yum!
Joe was the friendliest, nicest person you could ever want to meet. His knowledge about the whole area was incredible, and it was obvious that he loves sharing with all the people he meets. His enthusiasm is very contagious. By the time our tour was over, I didn't want to leave. I felt like Joe was a friend.
The scenery you will see is some of the most amazing in the world! And Joe knows where all the good spots are.
Plus he was extremely helpful to us in planning the tour to accommodate my husband's needs since he has MS. Joe helped us figure out how best to handle everything so that my husband could have a really great experience.
We've been to Alaska, Arizona, Colorado, Utah, Hawaii, and Nova Scotia. We took tours in all those places. I have to say that seeing the badlands with Joe ranks up there with any other tours we've taken.
Thanks for everything, Joe. We'll remember our time with you for years to come.
