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!!
My son and I were taken on our excursion by Pop, who has a vast knowledge for the area and subject matter. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and all that he and the excursion had to offer. It was a great experience...one that we will never forget! Thanks Pop!!!
