You haven’t seen Catalina until you’ve taken this tour. Joy our guide was great. We chose the three hour tour. We saw Buffalo but never found the larger herd. Nor did we see fox but that was a time of day issue. Great views so...More
Great tour for visitors from far away and also for "local tourists" who live in So Cal.

We took the 3 hour tour. Guide was excellent - very cool, calm, collected, funny & knows everything about the island. Gorgeous vistas, great history and a bit of off road fun too. Highly recommend this tour.

If he sits up front he will be fine. They have a couple of different sized jeeps. There were 4 of us in our tour, two teens, myself, and husband. Husband is a big guy, and he sat up front. He was very comfortable, and had the best view out the front of the jeep!
