A look into the past juxtaposed to present

My husband and I toured the Andreas and Palm Canyons as guests of Darrell “Blackfeather.” Darrell was good-natured and very informative regarding native culture, botany and geological history. He showed us how to make rope with Washingtonia filifera fibers, introduced us to the sweet Rosy Constrictor and made sure we were fed, watered and comfortable. It was a fun trip and I was sorry to see it end.

We had a great experience with 'Lane' who gave our family an amazing tour, full of interesting facts and history. My sons, ages 16 and 15, said it was the highlight of our Palm Springs trip! Highly recommended.

This tour was truly the highlight of our visit to Palm Springs. The tour took us to a really beautiful geographic location, Indian Canyons, were we went on a hike. We hiked along the beautiful Palm Trees that follow the mountain steam, and then a short hike to see the waterfall. It was spectacular! The best part of the trip was our extremely knowledgeable tour guide, Morgan. We have taken many tours all over the world, but never had a tour guide as knowledgeable as Morgan. She is literally a walking encyclopedia! She has a tremendous knowledge of the Cahuilla Indians who inhabited this land for hundreds of years. She also knows so much about this region and everything in it. We highly recommend this tour or any of the tours that Morgan gives! A

Excellent tour and such a knowledgeable guide in Morgan Levine!! We learned so much walking the Indian Canyon trail with her and seeing as well as hearing about how the desert tribe had survived and thrived in the area and how the natural environs had changed throughout history. 1 mile walk was very do-able and the jeep tour through other parts of the canyon area was fascinating. This is a GREAT tour that you don't want to miss if you enjoy expanding your knowledge and getting off the beaten path!!
