What people are saying about Palm Springs

Incredible! We had Greg as our guide and not only was he super informative but also an absolute sweetheart. My mom is very much into geology and she’s done this tour before; and she loved this one - she learned & saw different things. So if you’ve gone before, don’t hesitate to go again because there is so much to see and learn. It’s a beautiful way to spend some time with locals or guests. My friend from Oregon can’t wait to do it again with her husband. Book it now - you won’t regret it!
