Palm Springs Tours

Whether you are a resident of the Greater Palm Springs area or visiting with friends or family, Desert Adventures offers a variety of tours for you to enjoy.

Learn for yourself why Desert Adventures is the #1 RATED OUTDOOR ACTIVITY IN THE GREATER PALM SPRINGS AREA ON TRIPADVISOR and a Certificate of Excellence winner.

Our guides are simply the best in the area. Before any guide is allowed to conduct tours with guests, they must complete an extensive training program covering desert plants, animals, history, Indian Culture, geology, and much more. Trainees attend half-day classroom and field training sessions three days a week for 8 weeks. They are tested on all the material and complete a series of “ride-a-longs” with more experienced guides as the begin to put their tours together. After a trainee has passed all the required exams and quizzes and completed all of their ride-alongs, they can request a certification tour. If the evaluator feels the trainee has mastery of the information and has put together an interesting and entertaining tour, then they are cleared to conduct tours with guests.

For each new tour a guide wants to conduct, there is a similar certification process involving independent study, classroom sessions, field training, testing, and ride-alongs.

Our tours are unscripted. Instead, we believe in providing our guides with all the information they need to create their own tour that lets their own interests and personality shine through. This also means that they can modify their tours as they go to reflect YOUR interests.

We offer a variety of tours throughout the Greater Palm Springs area to allow you to fully explore our beautiful desert paradise.
