Tour Details

Explore one of the country’s most beautiful national parks on this Joshua Tree tour. Joshua Tree National Park covers almost 800,000 acres, so there’s a lot to see and do during this California nature tour. Your group size will determine whether you see the wilderness from a 6-passenger SUV or a 10-passenger van. Regardless of the vehicle, you’re in for some of the best views in the whole state. Pack your camera and join this Joshua Tree National Park tour.

This California tour departs from three locations, Palm Desert, Palm Springs, and the west entrance of the park’s visitors center. Travelers joining from Palm Desert and Palm Springs will be treated to a narrated tour of Coachella Valley before arriving at the park; Coachella Valley is a 45-mile-long valley that’s crossed by the San Andreas Fault. You will also cut through San Gorgonio Pass, where you’ll see the area’s wind and solar farms at work. A delicious picnic lunch is included with your tour, regardless of departure point.

Once you’re at the park, expect to spend about three hours exploring the landscape. The park is named after the Joshua Tree that’s native to the area. The tree received its name from a group of Mormon travelers who thought the tree reminded them of a Bible story involving a character named Joshua. As you make your way around Joshua Tree, your guide will point out the flora, fauna, and other natural wonders that define the park. Wear comfortable shoes because you will be hiking to Desert Queen Mine, an abandoned mine dating back to the late 1800s. You will also get up close to Barker Dam, where you’ll find bighorn sheep and other indigenous wildlife.

The last two stops on this Palm Springs nature tour are the Hidden Valley Loop and Key’s View Overlook. Both stops offer some of the best views in the park. The former gives you an unparalleled look at the park’s impressive rock formations, while the latter offers a panoramic view of the park and Mexico from more than 5,000 feet up. All of this exploration is bound to make you hungry, so you’ll have a filling lunch during the tour. The lunch menu includes a deli sandwich, chips, fruit, cookie, soft drink, and bottled water. Your tour also includes round-trip transportation, the expertise of a professional guide, park admission, and snacks throughout the excursion. Book your spot today for an unforgettable California adventure.
