This was truly a delightful trip. We covered a lot of ground with a knowledgable, fun guide, Aaron.
It was great to incorporate a few points of interest outside Joshua Tree before entering the park. The park is fantastic! It is so beautiful and...continued

If you're like me and have lived in L.A. for years and have heard about Joshua Tree but have never been, that the thought of jumping in your car and driving out there and back in a day just didn't seem appealing, if not plain exhausting (2 1/2 hrs...continued

What a great day - Our guide Aaron planned the perfect day for our group. After a day filled with wonderful sites, everyone in our group came home feeling like we had just returned from a weeks vacation. The pace was relaxing however we saw and...continued

Aaron is an enthusiastic and accommodating tour guide. He happily sought consensus on places we wanted to go and food we wanted to eat. We wished there was less driving and more hiking, but Joshua Tree is a huge place and difficult to get...continued

A terrific day excursion! The comfort of being a passenger--with like-minded people to enjoy chatting with. This is a wonderful taste of the outdoors with light hiking, a fabulous lunch, some good stories told by the very entertaining and...continued

A real bargain -- a great 12-hour day trip with a capable guide and driver. We stopped at a couple of interesting artistic spots on the way there and our group split up for an excellent lunch in Joshua Tree, relying on reviews from Aaron, our...continued

Just plain awesome! The day was extremely well organized, for one thing, which is important. But even a well-organized trip does not guarantee a great time will be had by all the participants. Aaron, who owns the company and served as our...continued

I had a wonderful time. Our tour guide, Aaron Sims, drove the van with all eight of us, including Aaron. He is so even-tempered, very important when a bunch of strange people pile in who don't know him, or each other. He is a fantastic cook. Lunch...continued

This was a great tour. The guide, Aaron, was excellent. I would recommend this tour to people of any age group. Hikes were interesting and not difficult at all even though the day was hot. We made several stops for hiking. The scenery is breath...continued

Well informed guide who loves what he is showing us. He kept to deadline without us feeling tied to the schedule. Much much better than i expected. Thank you Aaron at Southwest Adventures.

What a great day at Joshua Tree! Take three random groups of people and put them in a mini bus with a guide who drives safely, knows how to feed you well, and tell you all about the history of the area while taking you all over Yucca Valley and...continued

What a fantastic experience!! Loved our tour guide Aaron and was thoroughly exhausted by end of day. It was a 14 hour day and loved every minute of it. Aaron is a great driver, very knowledgeable about the area and very catering to our needs. ...continued

Great trip. I would like to see more like this one. The beauty of the dessert was breath taking at sunset. The old movie town set was fun walking around seeing the old west.

Overall, it was a very good experience. The ticket said 7:30, but the driver said that was a mistake and we were picked up at 8:00. The places are very unique and it is unlikely that I would have visited them on my own.

A very full day touring Joshua Tree National Park and the surrounding areas. Unfortunately it was very windy and cold, so we did not hike as much as I thought. It is probably best to go in Springtime when the weather is not too hot or too cold. ...continued

Great trip! Always wanted to check this place out, and Aaron's the guy to show you. Hospitable, low-key, and friendly, he plays cool music and lets you explore on your own. Beautiful artwork at Noah's Art, fascinating rock formations, and odd...continued

I had a wonderful time. The guide was kind, knowledgeable and took us places we didn't even know we wanted to see..a sculpture garden which was really cool. The company on the van was great and I would highly recommend this trip. A great day.
