San Andreas Fault Hummer Tour
From US$149.00
Overview
Stand above a gaping rift in the earth’s crust on a 3-hour hummer tour that goes deep into California’s rugged desert terrain. Enjoy sweeping views from your open-air truck as you leave Palm Desert for the San Andreas Fault, and learn about the area’s extraordinary history and geology from your guide. Look down into some of the world’s oldest ravines, watch for bighorn sheep and golden eagles as you explore the back roads of Berdoo Canyon, then take a 30-minute hike through the heart of a vast palm oasis.
What to Expect
Start your 3-hour tour by making your way to the meeting point in Palm Desert, or request hotel pickup in Palm Springs. Jump in the open-air Hummer and enjoy the dry desert wind in your face.
After arriving at the San Andreas Fault, walk right over it on a bridge that spans the ravine. Your expert guide will regale you with amazing geological facts about the fault and speak of its interesting history. Some of the oldest canyons in the planet are here. Gawk at the strange rock formations and keep an eye out for bighorn sheep, particularly when the tour moves on to Berdoo Canyon, also known as the Big Game Corridor.
Visit Thousand Palms Oasis, the third-largest oasis in the world. Expect to be dazzled by the sight, as you take a 30-minute eco walk here. Learn the fascinating history of the local Cahuilla Indians and visit the cabin of the first settler who resided in the area.
A snack and water are provided along the way; you can also bring beer, wine, soda and snacks of your own.

A WASTE OF MONEY

Fun tour - lots of wildflowers!

We had a great tour with Josh. He was very knowledgeable about the area and it's history. Be ready for some wind and cold air - we went out from 3:30-6:30 or so - perfect amount of time. The wildflowers were BOOMING! Highly recommend.

So so tour

I was looking forward to seeing the San Andreas fault and also visiting an Oasis. The fault was a disappointment at the oasis. I also didn’t realize that both were at the same place. We could have visited it ourselves and saved some money. The...More

Heads-up...don't waste your time or money.

Jeff our "tour guide" offered a few interesting comments and then pretty much stopped talking. He played loud music to avoid questions for 3/4 of the tour. The San Andres fault portion of the tour was interesting but the time spent in the BLM area...More
