Will was a great guide, very knowledgeable, personable and engaging. Good plan by starting at the east end of the Park and traversing to the other side. Wonderful sites and great conversation. Definitely a memorable experience that will stay with my wife and me long after we get home.

The guide was absolutely amazing from the moment of pickup to drop off. Knowledgable, professional & served customer service perfection! The bucket list I had awaited to complete since the Joshua Tree Album was released in 1986 cam to life during this tour.

The owners of this tour were very communicative from booking to the day of the tour. It worked out for them to pick us up at our hotel, which was very convenient. We were picked up in a large van with a few other visitors, and we were off. Our guide, Will, was amazing... so knowledgeable and funny to boot! I would recommend him for any tour, you could hear the passion behind his stories. There were adequate stops on this tour, with a few minutes available to get out and walk around at each. They also provided water and some light snacks. Will was great about taking pictures of you, so you didn't have to rely on selfies, haha! Overall, the tour was a great use of time and appropriate for the cost. You see the park's main highlights, and as Will said, it gives you a taste so you know where you would want to come back and spend more time. The only reason I am not giving this 5 stars is the van. The windows on the van have a coating to help block out the sun (all the tiny black dots), but unfortunately, that blocked out the view too and even caused some slight nausea for me (I understand why those dots would be necessary for the desert). If you are prone to sickness, you may want to look at other tours in different vehicles. This was a great experience at an 'other-worldly' park that should be on everyone's bucket list.

This is a must for anyone visiting the Palm Springs area. The Tour Guide - Susie, was absolutely incredible in every way. She was personable and friendly, without trying. She was so knowledgeable about the history of the area and provided lots of fun facts. She kept us on schedule but most importantly she went above and beyond to make sure that as a solo traveler - I had a welcoming and nourishing experience. Her positive energy was a delight to be around. The views throughout the park were spectacular. I wouldn’t do it any other way.

The park is beautiful, I wish I had more time to explore it all. Will, our guide, was knowledgeable and made the information fun to listen to. I am sad I didn't get to see the sunset because the rest of the group was too cold for it, so that's a tip, go prepare if you're taking the afternoon tour, it gets very cold at the top. I hope to return and take the tour that will show me and teach me about the rest of the park.
