Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Meet your group and guide at Coco’s Restaurant in Palm Desert. Please note the departure time varies throughout the season based on sunset times. The exact time you should meet will be provided after you reconfirm your tour.

After you meet with your guide, jump in your 4WD Jeep to get your journey started. Your Jeep has no doors or windows, so you’re in store for quite the riding adventure. Drive by steep-walled canyons along the San Andreas Fault with the open air running through your hair.

As your tour makes its way through the desert, the sun will begin to set. Keep your camera ready for awesome pictures of the sunset in the valley. As night starts to fall, enjoy the scenery under the moonlight. The wildlife also starts to come out at nighttime, so make sure to keep your eyes peeled as you ride.

Just found this link. I don't remember ever getting an email to rate. I remember this trip fondly. This tour is so much more amazing than the description. We drove through tight canyons with amazing geological formations. I just loved it! I couldn't taking enough photos. Who would have thought that an adventure to the San Andreas Fault will enable us to see canyons!

Went with my hubby and 5yr old son. All of us enjoyed it, the guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. It's crazy to be right where the fault is and to learn and see what is happening on land because of it. Saw some strange insects which my son loved. It was fun to ride in the jeep with the wind hitting us, but at one point the windiness was a bit too much, haha, nature :-
