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.

This tour is only as good as the local operator...

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.

Don, our tour guide, was very knowledgeable and happy to share. My husband and I enjoyed everything from the Oasis to the hummer ride down the heights of Joshua Tree, great fun.

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!!
