  • "Our “Jeep” was a Toyota 4-runner, which was way more comfortable than a Jeep and still got us to all the off-road places our guide wanted to show us." See review

Isabel and Jeff were very accommodating and great in knowing us in such a short time. The tour met way above our expectations. Isabel”s knowledge of the terrain and the history of the places we went to was awesome. She was our driver in our group and she is just overflowing with stories that makes the tour so enriching. I highly recommend this tour to anyone coming to Palm Springs. It was worth every penny we spent and the experience is priceless. I will actually want to do this again with family.!

We enjoyed walking through the San Andreas fault and climbing on the rocks in the canyon. It is so quiet and beautiful. Joel was knowledgeable and a good driver too.

The short hike up the side canyon - unique scenery and geology. Knowledgeable guide / excellent off-road driving. Sorry we couldn't stop at the date grove. Would have been 5 stars except my reservation was messed up.
icon Response from Host , Sep 2021
Hello Pat. Yes, the mixup on the reservation was my fault so the 4 stars is deserved and I own it. Thank you for being flexible and understanding and for still singing our praises. We hope you can join us again.

Fantastic Driver and narrator. Communicated a lot of in depth knowledge of the Fault line etc. Wife said one of the best tours we have ever had and I agree. Can’t wait to do it again with friends next visit. Thanks again Peggy and Neal Dossett.

Collin was very informative, we learned alot. I was naive in thinking I would see a "crack in the ground" for the fault line. Overall very satisfied 😃
icon Response from Host , Jul 2021
Thank you Nikki! I had the same education about the fault when I moved here nearly 30 years ago....that there would be a big crack in the ground. Turns out this is where the plates just grind past one another which creates it's own spectacular otherwordly landscape.
