“Joshua Tree Tour”

★★★★★
5
To begin, "Tour" doesn't begin to describe this adventure. We began by driving through the wind farms - and as we are engineers - had a very intelligent discussion with our guide on alternative energy - and energy sources in general. (We talked techie - and loved it!) Then on to the main event. Joshua Tree National Park is truly an undiscovered gem (and thankfully so). When I have traveled in other countries I have always sought after local guides. I didn't realize what I have been missing in the US. Local knowledge/history coupled with an understanding of "how such geology came to be" took this "Tour" to the next level. My eyes and brain were both wonderfully stimulated - I can't wait to return.””

“Fun and educational day in Joshua Tree”

★★★★★

We booked the Joshua Tree National Park Eco-Tour. We were picked up on time at our hotel by our tour guide Morgan. Turns out we got a private tour, which was everything we could have hoped for. Morgan gave us tons of interesting information about the Park and the local history and community. From Morgan's description, it sounds like Desert Adventures takes the training of their guides seriously, so if you are looking for a tour that will give you tons of interesting information, this is probably the company to go with. The Park tour is worth taking if you like interesting rock formations and desert plant life. There are some nice views across the valley and we even stopped at an old gold mine. We went in late January and it was a bit chilly in places, so take the 'dress in layers' advice to heart. Next time we are in the area, we will probably try the fault tour.””

“Star tour home in PS”

★★★★★

A Great way to see where all the current and past stars live in Palm Springs. Recommendation only go in the open air jeep it sits higher and you can see a lot more! We were in a SUV and could not see half what we could in an open air jeep that sits higher. We had Morgan, she has TONS of info on who lived where, what they paid, when, etc.! LOT's of history in this town and a must for the Movie star lovers!””

Ask for a Jeep!

★★★★★

My friend and I took this tour recently and had a great time. Normally Desert Adventures conducts this tour in an SUV or a Van. But we were given the option to go in one of their red jeeps instead since it was a nice day. If the weather is nice when you go, ask for the Jeep! It was a lot of fun and offered unobstructed views.””

Palm Springs Architecture

My family took this tour on a recent trip to Palm Springs. The kids were thrilled to see the home that was recently purchased by Leonardo DiCaprio while my wife and I were fascinated by the stories our guide told us about celebrities from our generation. We also learned about the history of Palm Springs and saw some great examples of mid-century modernism architecture.””
