Description

Stroll past intriguing rock formations and boulder-strewn valleys, get up-close looks at the habitats of fascinating animals, and hear how this spectacular park is about more than just a tree. Spend a day uncovering the ecology and history of Joshua Tree National Park on this fun-filled adventure.

Leave from the sun-soaked valley around Palm Springs and enjoy a scenic drive in a comfortable and air-conditioned tour van. Watch for the first appearance of the park's namesake trees, whose stiff palm-like leaves grow in tight bunches at the ends of stout branches.

At the Visitor's Center, check out immersive exhibits that chronicle the area's flora and fauna, and listen to your guide as they point out the park's most famous landmarks and features. Snap photos of the rocky terrain, and meander down leisurely paths to find new vantage points and more tranquil desert scenes. Along the way, keep your eyes peeled for wildlife, including fleet-footed roadrunners and red-spotted toads.

Stop by the gift shop on your way out of the park, or while away the extra time with a quick nature walk in the Hidden Valley or to Keys View, both ideal ways to end your Joshua Tree National Park experience.

Joshua Tree national park is a great destination that I would strongly recommend to anyone. The tour was Ok and our guide was very nice. The tour didn't meet my expectations as I was looking for an opportunity to explore the park beyond the bitten paths. However, the tour was limited to the most obvious extremely short trails. We probably could have a more interesting tour visiting selfguided.

Excellent half day tour made special by our tour guide Ron whose knowledge and passion for Joshua tree National Park and the outdoors was shared with our small group. Ron pointed out many interesting facts about the history and geology of the park, his knowledge of the park and it’s trails allowed us to safely explore, on foot, some of the best less crowded views. We thoroughly enjoyed this tour and Ron’s company and would recommend it.
