What to Expect
Meet your guide in Palm Desert and hop in a sturdy H1 Hummer that's perfect for exploring the rugged landscapes of Joshua Tree. Travel along the San Andreas fault while learning about the park’s ancient geologic history and scoping out some of the oldest canyons on Earth. Get out for an eco-walk at Thousand Palms Oasis, where you'll learn about the area’s history and the local Cahuilla Indians. See for yourself how the Berdoo Canyon earned the nickname “Big Game Corridor” as you venture past the point that most tours go to look for wild bighorn sheep, coyotes, and golden eagles. Inside Joshua Tree National Park, explore the enchanting desert landscape via back roads not accessible to the general public. See 1,000-year-old Joshua trees and other highlights handpicked by your guide before returning to the starting point in Palm Desert.

Gary was so enthusiastic and knowledgeable about a wide range of topics, plus he was fun! We sat up on the back of the H1 military Humvee with blankets for warmth and could easily hear him due to the speaker system. Learnt a lot about the San Andreas fault Complex, the flora

Holy smokes! We covered so much ground and learned so many things we could have NEVER done had we been solo. Josh was full of information around every corner, he was nice, accommodating and made it fun. The Hummer was a great way to see Joshua Tree. It was very much worth it.

Response from adventurehummer, Owner at Joshua Tree Hummer Adventure from Palm Desert

I'm sorry that you did not deserve the right tour! You were aboard our very popular open air tour. It indeed goes to Joshua Tree National Park in an area that only 4x4s can go. You must have missed seeing the entrance sign on the road. Our H1 adventure spends time in an Oasis at the San Andr as Fault for about 30 minutes before heading to the park, a detail other guests need to know in your review. It sounds like you wanted to see more of Joshua Tree aboard an air conditioned tour. This is called the Back roads tour and is on all our brochures and flyers. As to renting your own 4x4 to do a tour, I would not advise. You were on a military Hummer that takes all the bumps out of your trip. But, there is a reason the park requires a off-road vehicle...Many cars get STUCK! PLEASE read our brochures before purchasing a tour so you get on the right one.!!!

Our guide, Josh, was outstanding. His knowledge of the area which included the birds, animals, plants, trees, and explanation of the geology was greatly appreciated by our group. He also had great stories about the gold mining and ranchers who had settled in the area.

I booked this excursion as a private tour for a company event. Louis and Gary were excellent tour guides and put a lot of effort into making the tour interesting and informative. The highlight of the tour were various little hikes we got to do. If you are contemplating booking
