What people are saying about Palm Springs

I took my three sons (18,13,6) on The San Andreas tour and it was awesome! Our guide Annie was wonderful. She was very knowledgeable and safe! It was truly a unique experience. The tour was three hours long and we were engaged the entire time. My boys didn’t want it to end!

Recommend going early in the day so you can enjoy the scenery and walking around/hiking. Fun ride up with beautiful views and very cool ride down in the dark. There is a bar and restaurant to enjoy some cocktails food and views.

The experience was great but the dining is subpar. Eat before you head up to the mountain.

Amazing and thanks.... it was so easy getting a ticket thru your voucher

Wonderful experience for my family visiting from Singapore!
