Join us on an unforgettable journey to our private and exclusive Metate Ranch where you will explore a pristine section of the infamous San Andreas Fault Zone.  

Visit a lush palm oasis where you will see water bubbling up from the underground aquifer year-round.  Take a guided nature walk or hike through narrow slot canyons created uplift from the movement of the Pacific Plate vs. the North American Plate and carved over the ions by wind and water.

Public vs. Private Tours

Public Tours:

Public tours are sold by the seat.  Each of our Jeeps holds 7 guests plus your driver/guide.  On public tours, it is likely that your party will be travelling with other people.   

Whenever possible, we keep groups of up to 7 guests together in the same Jeep.   Parties of 8 or more people will be split between 2 or more Jeeps.  

Solo Travellers: Public San Andreas Fault Jeep Tours have a 2 person minimum to operate.  If you are traveling alone, please contact us to inquire about joining an existing tour.

Private Tours:

Private tours are sold by the 7-passenger Jeep.  When you book a private tour, the entire Jeep is reserved for your party, regardless of the number of guests.

Departure times for private tours are more flexible than for public tours and we can add enhancements to private tours such as picnic or catered meals, beverages, a team-building rally, and more.  Please contact us for more information.

Online reservations are accepted for up to 3 Jeeps.

For larger groups, please contact Group Sales for pricing and Group Booking Policies.  Desert Adventures can accommodate up to 105 guests at a time on group tours.  Groups of up to 200 guests can be accommodated with double rounds and even larger groups can be accommodated by combining Jeep Tours with other activities.  Please tells us about your needs and request a proposal for your group.
