    Gary was knowledgeable, entertaining, and fun! We have a better appreciation for the desert with its sand dunes, oasis and mountains! We'd love to do a tour again with him!

    Very disappointed that we got the notification of cancellation the night before an 8am tour. This left us no choice to find another tour and we already traveled to Palm Springs mainly for the tour.

    Amazing experience and incredible views. Gary Evanoff made the trip experience all the better with his knowledge and humor.

    Very knowledgeable guide. My family enjoyed the vehicle, but I recommend to not take a tour during August-September as it was over 100F in the morning time.

    The ride was awesome with the wind blowing and the views. And as a bonus you learn all about your he mountains and rock formations. Well worth the money!!!

    I went on this tour today & had the best time! Gary was the guide & shares his in depth & constantly growing knowledge of the landscape with such care & appreciation for it. He is perfect & a true natural with his presentation & has a great sense of humor too. He was so easy going & we had quite a few photo ops during our adventure. On the way back he played some great music which blended with our surroundings in the right way. It was so cool! I could’ve toured with him all day & stayed completely entertained. The company itself is outstanding & Jeff adds to the top notch service. I look forward to another adventure with them!

    Our guide Zach was very knowledgeable about the geology and history of the area. Enjoyed going remote places normal vehicles could not.

    Great, knowledgable guide. Great experience. Beware when booking, I booked through Tripadvisor with the option to be picked from our hotel, entered name of the hotel address, etc. It was pure luck I called the tour company to confirm pick up time and they advised me they don't do that. So we had to make our way there and back via Uber and it was not cheap.

    We took the San Andreas Fault Hummer Tour and had a great tour guide (Louis). Seeing the San Andreas Fault was amazing and very interesting. The bridge over the fault was only a foot or two above the fault. We then headed to Joshua Tree National Park. We drove up a canyon entrance that required the Hummer, over very rough terrain with no road in several places. Louis did a great job describing the different rock formations and the various desert plants and how the Native Americans used these plants.
