Worth every penny!

Ben was a fantastic tour guide. He showed us some lovely homes in Palm Springs and was a wonderful cheerleader as we braved the final incline into Indian Canyon. Incredibly knowledgeable and friendly, he made an extra effort to answer all my 15-year-old daughter’s questions about every species of animal in the desert! He even gave some additional recommendations for the other days of our trip. This tour was worth every penny, and be sure to generously tip your guide!

Excellent bike/hike tour with our guide, Ben. Beautiful neighborhoods with mid-century architecture and a great hike in the Indian Canyon. Saw desert big horn sheep and amazing landscape

Colin was wonderful! We loved him and the tour. Biked through some Gorgeous mid century modern neighborhoods and then up a gradual mile long hill to the most amazing oasis. Right in the middle of the desert. And then did a mile loop in this oasis and biked back home.

It was informative and fun. I have been going to Palm Springs for 40 yrs and never knew this area of the desert exist. My 23 yrs old son wasn't with us and I told him we will go again next time we return. My husband was skeptical but really enjoyed it.

What a special day

The bike ride was great and our guide Captain Ron was knowledgeable and super nice. There was one hill but other than that a flat easy ride. The hike was also wonderful and due to the park restrictions we were the only people in the park. The only suggestion I have is less talking and more riding or if the stopping and talking is part of the tour then this should be explained in the tour description. Also there were no snacks as listed in what was included in the tour.

Fun day

There was a little problem getting a reservation. If you wait too long, the trip gets cancelled due to lack of participation. After the reservation, there is still no guarantee trip will go unless more people sign up. For single travelers, this makes for uncertainty in your schedule. Good to be flexible. Overall the trip was interesting. The guide was knowledgeable and interesting. The bike ride and hike were not difficult, but hills were sometimes challenging (in a good way).
