Bob did a great job! He showed us plants that can use to make items out of. Bird nest in a plant. So many beautiful view’s! Without Bob, we would have missed so much of the details of this beautiful National Park.
Response from Host, Feb 2023
Thanks for your terrific review and coming along with us to see nature with our guide Bob!
Lousy service
Ross_G, Oct 2022
Got a call at the meeting spot from a representative from the company that the trip would be cancelled because they couldn't secure a van to take us to the starting point where the Hummer was waiting for us. Another couple was there and said this happened to them the day before and got pushed to today. Really!!! Can't find a van to take 8 paying customers. If this is the start of the trip I can imagine what the actual 4 wheel drive activity would bring us.
Response from Host, Oct 2022
We are genuinely sorry this happened on this day. Although this is a very rare experience ,our van had a flat and it is necessary to use it to shuttle. Your tour will be refunded and we will offer you a discount next time you come visit us.

Jeff was a fun and informative guide. We experienced the majesty of Joshua Tree in one fulfilling afternoon. One of the few must do experiences around Palm Springs.

Fun back roads tour of Joshua Tree National Park -- it doesn't cover the main tourist area but brings you to the back roads which is even more fun. Also stopped by the Oasis.

I would give it one star but the tour guide Patrick was very good. We were in an army style hummer with long bench seats in the back. I felt like a soldier being carted off to the war front. Very uncomfortable and not what we were expecting. The brochures all showed a normal hummer with regular seats. My legs have bruises and the opportunity to take pictures were few because we were holding on to the seats or to the blankets that were keeping us from freezing.

Our driver was great and extremely knowledgeable. He is very passionate about the region and it shows. I was under the impression though that we would be doing some more off-roading or going to places the public doesn't normally go. The whole trip was on highways and a very well maintained dirt road. I easily would have driven this trip myself, even our driver acknowledged that you can easily drive a rental car on this trip, but I would really miss the geology lesson! The desert vista and the solitude was great once we got to our destination.

Great tour! Went to parts of Joshua Tree National Park where the general public seldom go. Tour took about 5 hours door to door. Went to the highest part of the park and had some fantastic views. Guide was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about his job. Would highly recommend.

Jeff was a fabulous guide. He was able to spot big horn sheep,jack rabbits, and plenty other wildlife for us. His geographical and historical knowledge of the area made him a great travel companion. We combined our tour with some tennis watching at Indian Wells and Jeff was able to accommodate our itinerary perfectly. The tour we picked was great because it covered the San Andreas fault, Joshua tree national park, and we found it all inclusive.our teenagers enjoyed it a lot!!! So that pretty much says a lot!!! I think it was a great tour!!

Don was an amazing guide - so knowledgeable about the area and made the trip an incredibly fun adventure. He says he knows every rock in the park and I have no doubt! We had a blast. Highly recommend.
super tour avec un excellent guide

tres bonne excursion. le Hummer permet de prendre des chemins inaccessibles aux véhicules classiques. peu de faune mais la flore est superbe. Mention spéciale a Jeff notre chauffeur/guide.
