Disappointed with the experience. The "jeep" tour was in a Toyota Seqouia (barge). Very few passing references to the San Andreas Fault. We would have worn different footwear if we knew that hiking was a big part of the tour. Overpriced

We had a great time on this tour. Our “Jeep” was a Toyota 4-runner, which was way more comfortable than a Jeep and still got us to all the off-road places our guide wanted to show us. Cody was an awesome guide. He was very knowledgeable, as well as friendly and fun!

Ron our guide was knowledgeable in the geology, physics and history of the area and specifically the San Andreas fault. We were by ourselves so the discussions, questions and answers were directed specifically at us. Ron and myself, being two old farts, discussed life in general as well. Besides the fault line I liked the trip through Mecca and the dates! I have made it a goal to return and do his bicycle tour once he gets his knee replacement!!

We could not have chosen a much hotter day to take this tour. Steve, our tour guide, was great. He shared geological, historical and other information making every moment of the tour interesting. Because of the heat, we did limited walking. But the times we got out to walk for a bit were full of interesting rock formations and plant life. And of course, plenty of lizards.

We had a great morning with our tour guide, George. It was a little tight in the jeep but the ride was fun, educational, and interesting. We got to see a little desert color as well! At the end of our tour George stopped at the Date Farm and treated us to a date shake! Great treat!! Would certainly recommend taking this tour!
