Overview

The lush resorts of Palm Springs will feel a million miles away when you get out in the wilds of Joshua Tree National Park on this small group Jeep tour. Leave the city behind as you head off-road and over a rocky landscape some people say feels like being on another planet. See plants and rock formations that are unique to the desert, and learn what makes Joshua Tree so special.
  • Get off road in a 4x4 and into places you can’t go in a regular vehicle
  • Don’t forget a jacket, the park can be much cooler than Palm Springs
  • Get an early start in summer; in winter choose a morning or afternoon tour
  • This tour is family friendly and great for all ages over 5 years old

Found my tree!

Isabelle came prepared with water and snacks, like a spirit mom ready to take me on a journey through this beautiful place. We walked through the history of the Indigenous people who came through here as well as the colonists, took pictures, got to a secret getaway spot, saw the different animals and plants - and I saw the Joshua Tree I connected to the most! All around amazing experience!

The tour guide was excellent. Not only that he got permission to drop us in Palm Springs where we were staying instead of going back to Palm desert. He was knowledgeable about the trees, history, etc. We recommended your tour and the tour leader to a couple staying at the same place we were staying in Palm springs. Great trip. Peggy Lynch

This was a great time! Anita was an amazing tour guide. She is very familiar with the area - geography, history, culture, and wildlife. So not only was our trip fun, it was very informative, as well! She navigated the bumpy roads with precision. We were expecting a fairly large crowd, since it was the weekend, but we were able to see the park from a great perspective as if we were the only people there. It is so beautiful! Anita also came to the rescue with her first aid kit when I impaled my wrist on a yucca plant. Thank you, Anita!!!

Great tour through the Sonoran and Mojave Deserts with a short hike through Joshua Tree Nat’l Park. Jeep ride through the mountains was definitely bumpy so wouldn’t recommend if you have back/neck issues, but otherwise fantastic! Our driver, Anita, was full of information about the area.
