We have a yearly reunion with a couple who were in our wedding 36 years ago. They wanted to see Palm Springs again and he found the Red Jeep experience through the JW Marriott properties. We had the enclosed Toyota Sequoia option and it was a good thing as the weather had turned windy and cold. Our guide was wonderfully knowledgeable and was able to fill in many of the area's historical episodes including the General Patton training area that really did not pertain to the Joshua Tree part of the trip, just the trip to get there. From a thorough understanding of the local plants and wildlife to having been over much of the country on his own, "Mr. Bill" ably demonstrated the use of various plants by the original inhabitants and showed us the historical background of the area from mining to more modern projects such as aqueducts. The real advantage to this trip was the ability to tailor the route to conditions. We were told we were avoiding the worst of the wind and having a chance to see the area. As we returned to Palm Desert, the clouds of blowing dust showed us how competent Bill was in his selection of route. This tour takes what looks like a barren landscape and Highly recommended;m animates Joshua Tree from the Indian inhabitants to the modern day. Do heed their weather commentary as it does change due to elevation.
The information provided was very accurate and helpful in promoting a good experience.
