    What to Expect
    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Coachella Valley Preserve, 29200 Thousand Palms Canyon Road, Palm Springs, Greater Palm Springs, CA

    Here your adventure makes it's first stop at the 3rd largest Oasis in the world. Here you will walk over a bridge that straddles the actual faultline. 30 minutes are spent here where there is about a half mile trail you can optionally take with your guide. Restrooms are also located here before we venture far into the wilderness.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: San Andreas Fault, Palm Desert, Greater Palm Springs, CA

    We travel by Hummer into the mouth of a canyon that was formed by the San Andreas Fault.

    Here the adventure in your Hummer begins and we follow a road many Jeeps will need to return. 1.5 billion year old rocks are in this canyon that date back to the bottom of the Grand Canyon!

    The scenery is mind-bending as you see the tortured rock formations beneath the cobalt blue skies of the high desert.

    Duration: 2 hours

    We had a great tour with Josh. He was very knowledgeable about the area and it's history. Be ready for some wind and cold air - we went out from 3:30-6:30 or so - perfect amount of time. The wildflowers were BOOMING! Highly recommend.

    I was looking forward to seeing the San Andreas fault and also visiting an Oasis. The fault was a disappointment at the oasis. I also didn’t realize that both were at the same place. We could have visited it ourselves and saved some money. The...More

    Jeff our "tour guide" offered a few interesting comments and then pretty much stopped talking. He played loud music to avoid questions for 3/4 of the tour. The San Andres fault portion of the tour was interesting but the time spent in the BLM area...More

    We called in the morning and were able to book the afternoon tour. We met at the Morton's Steakhouse in Palm Desert and Josh was waiting for us. There was only one other couple on our tour so we had a great choice of seats....More
