    Our tour guide, Jon Gurule, really hit it out of the park. He kept two young girls - 10 and 7 - extremely engaged with games and hands-on cactus experiences. The kids haven’t stopped talking about it! Jon is super knowledgeable and passionate about the desert and kept us all entertained and informed.

    Trevis was absolutely amazing!! He took me and 11 of my friends on the private jeep tour and was so fun and taught us so much! It was the perfect balance between a party and learning - with absolutely stunning views!!! Trevis knew the perfect spots for pictures and was the best photographer! You need to go on this with Trevis- he’s the best guide ever!
