We go to the 3rd largest Oasis in the world where you will walk over a bridge that straddles the San Andreas Fault.

Initially we thought we would drive ourselves to see the Joshua Tree National Park. I’m so glad we didn’t as we would not have seen this wonderful place as it should be seen and would not have learned what we did learn. Thank you Gary. Your insightful and informative commentary was fabulous and the off road experience and views are something we’ll always remember. The music too was fantastic. Thank you so much.
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.
Gary was a good guide; very knowledgable and fun. We learned a lot and had a good time. Meeting in Palm Springs and driving up to entrance of Joshua Tree in a nice SUV before switching into the Hummer is definitily the way to go. My only complaint was that for $200 a person we should be provided with lunch and drinks on a 5 hour excursion.
I found Gary to. helpful since it is hard for me move in and out of the hummer. He extremely knowledgeable. He showed beautiful views and explained everything about the Joshua tree. we enjoyed our trip and are looking forward to go back. I would use this company and having Gary as our guide.
So much to brag about…the scenery, the accommodations, the attentiveness of drivers. A must do!!!!!!
Excellent adventure! The A+ service started with a hotel pickup, and he was early! From start to finish this was amazing. Gary is so personable and knowledgeable. I hated environmental science "stuff" in school but was fascinated and learned so much on the tour. We never felt rushed and Gary let the small party of us choose when it came to seeing certain things. Wear clothes you don't mind getting dusty and definitely comfortable walking/hiking shoes as you will get the option to climb a trail and see the gorgeous view of the basin below.
Excellent tour, and exceptional tour guide exceeding well versed and knowledge about the geology, horticulture and wild life of the area. We’ll worth the cost. Our tour guide and driver made this a fun, safe tour.
The Joshua Tree Hummer Adventure was an amazing experience! Gary was the best guide, he is super knowledgable on all things Geology, Palm Desert and Joshua Tree (we learned so much)! He also has a great sense of humor, which made for a fun day cruising the back roads of the park. Our experience happened to to fall during the extreme heat wave-Gary contacted us the day before "out of an abundance of caution" to let us know our tour of Joshua Tree would be in an air-conditioned Hummer, not open air. It was a very good call and greatly appreciated by my family! I would highly recommend this experience....5 hours flew by and we thoroughly enjoyed our day. Finally, to top it off, Gary's personal play list was awesome!!!
Gary was super awesome! Very knowledgeable about the landscape, history, community, etc. Gary picked us up at our VRBO about 10 minutes early but was so gracious and understanding that a group of 6 women were not ready 10 minutes early. He patiently waited and then took his time during the tour making sure all of our questions where answered. He stopped every time one of us wanted to take a picture. Would definitely recommend this tour to Joshua tree and the natural oasis. Ask for Gary!
We did the enclosed hummer ride to Joshua Tree. Gary was a wealth of knowledge of the the park and the surroundings areas. We stop several times to get out and enjoys the views. Learned a lot on this trip. :) I would recommend this activity to anyone looking for an adventure. My teens and husband had a great time.
