Great tour!
Karen_M, Feb 2021
Colin was wonderful! We loved him and the tour. Biked through some Gorgeous mid century modern neighborhoods and then up a gradual mile long hill to the most amazing oasis. Right in the middle of the desert. And then did a mile loop in this oasis and biked back home.
Response from Host, Feb 2021
Thank you very much! Kolin is one of our newer guides but his enthusiasm and passion absolutely show through. So glad you enjoyed your tour.

Paul_T, Mar 2020
It was informative and fun. I have been going to Palm Springs for 40 yrs and never knew this area of the desert exist. My 23 yrs old son wasn't with us and I told him we will go again next time we return. My husband was skeptical but really enjoyed it.
Great experience!!!
