Had a fabulous experience on the San Andreas Fault tour. Bob, our guide, was very knowledgeable and interesting, and we learned a lot about the former inhabitants, the Cahuilla Indians; we saw a recreated village, in addition to learning about and seeing the San Andreas fault. They took us to slot canyons and into the back country you can't see any other way. Highly recommend the tour!

Our guide was Jim, and he did an excellent job. He was very knowledgeable and we learned a lot (and we live here). He was funny too. And he went out of his way to make sure everyone one of us had a great time. Jim handled him self very well, even though we had a really difficult young college student that thought she was an expert on everything. She was a real challenge for any tour guide, and Jim handled her so well. Would strongly recommend this tour. Donna Halpin

About Desert Adventures


Mary and Charlie Dungans sought a source of entertainment in Palm Springs beyond golf and tennis. To find it, they traveled beyond the city limits and into the surrounding deserts. There, they discovered a fascinating world of geological formations and wildlife inspiring them to found Desert Adventures in an effort to share this experience with others.

The couple only had three jeeps to their name when they opened their doors in 1987, but their sustainable nature tours proved popular. Today, their daughter Kimberly, her business partner Bob Schneider, and a crew of naturalist guides offer tours of an 840-acre private ranch and the unowned expanses of Mecca Hills. The equipment, too, has evolved with the times; the company's fleet includes 15 customized Jeep Scramblers capable of handling the desert pathways without disturbing the environment.
