What people are saying about Palm Springs

great ride, great info from the guide, safe and fun!

our guide was very knowledgeable and we could stop for photos when we wanted. We like to ride, so did not stop a lot. After the ride, we went to the date garden for our reward from the guide. Fun time and since it was summer, it was only the four of us in our family, but not too hot. one of the highlights of our trip to the desert.

Excellent way to spend the afternoon

Friendly and knowledgeable guide, Super Craig was fabulous! Plenty of water, and snacks. Flat most of the way, and then downhill through the San Andreas fault. Beautiful view of the Salton Sea and the expanse of agriculture in mecca. Bikes were good and the whole experience was fun.

Really awesome! Ben drove us through the San Andreas fault area and it was stunning! Like to hike? That’s really great too! The “Ladders” are so fun! The Saltan Sea and it’s backstory fascinate me. It’s beautiful, and toxic. A great trip! Highly recommend!!

Fun trip, worth doing again!

Our guide was very informative. The ride was easier than I expected and pleasantly surprised how quick 20 miles went. Loved every minute of it.
