When you come to Palm Springs, you can’t help but see our bright yellow open air Hummers and wonder, “Where are they going? So the answer is simple – Canyons, an Oasis and of course the San Andreas Fault. The best way to see all of these sights is with our famous San Andreas Fault tour because it’s an adventure in a real military Hummer.
We will take you far from where you can go on your own because the road is nearly impassable. Take an open air Hummer adventure with us on a goldmine trail that follows the bighorn sheep to amazing views. Here you will encounter some of the oldest canyons in the United States – over 1.5 billion years old. That is the same age as the bottom of the Grand Canyon. You will see and learn about historic gold mining areas and enter a place time has forgotten.
We also take you some 2000 feet higher into the Canyons of the San Andreas Fault than other Palm Springs Jeep tours. This is because we use the most capable and comfortable four wheel drive ever built. The military replaced the Jeep in 1985. Hummers are built on an independent suspension system with huge shock absorbers so it has the smoothest ride there is!
Our Hummer tours take you to tortured canyons that were made by the convergence of the Pacific and North American Plates. These canyons have yielded gold as magma heated up water and quartz in the rocks, a perfect combination for a gold rush fever! See why this area was the “Klondike of Southern California.”
We also make a special visit to the 3rd largest oasis in the world. Here we cross the crack of the San Andreas Fault on a bridge where you can see water percolating out of the crack to bring fresh, cool water to this oasis paradise. We also visit a historic Indian and Pioneer cultural site where one of Palm Springs first pioneers settled. It looks like a scene taken from the movie Blue Hawaii. Over 1000 Palms surround you to provide relief from the desert sun. You won’t believe this is in the desert!
This tour picks up from most hotels and from our main pick up location.
Don’t just settle for a Jeep tour. Go BEYOND. Go with the BEST.
