Step-on GuidesIf you are an out-of-town tour operator and you have your own transportation and just need a local tour guide to lead your group, consider hiring one of our friendly, fun, and knowledgeable professional step-on guides.

Our step-on guides are all desert naturalists who will share their love and passion for the area’s history, folklore, Native American culture, geology, flora, and fauna with your group. Our step-on guides will also point out popular landmarks and points of interest and lead your group to “hidden gems”.

Tours can be customized to your group’s particular interests and abilities.

Pricing for our Step-On Guides is $300.00 for up to 3 hours when our guide joins your group in Greater Palm Springs area (between Palm Springs to the West, Desert Hot Springs to the North, and Indio to the East). If you would like a longer tour, there is a $75 per guide per hour overtime charge.

Additional travel charges will apply if you want the guide to meet you outside the Greater Palm Springs area or if you can not return your step-on guide to the location where they joined your tour.

Step-on guide rates do not include applicable admission fees. Please contact us if you would like pricing for complete sightseeing tours that include the guide, transportation, and admission fees.
