Perfect way to get out in the desert and experience it up close. My flight arrived at 10:30am and I had tine to check into my hotel and a quick lunch before the 1:00pm tour. Our guide shared interesting information about the area on a wide range of topics, which helped make the experience even more engaging than just the bike ride. The ride itself is easy, so much so that I decided to leave 'the pack' on the last leg and get my heart rate up a little, and I'm just a casual biker. If you are inclined to tip, our guide accepted Venmo.

Of all the tours we took during our stay in Palm Springs this was by far the most memorable and exhilarating of them all. We have our guide, Ben, to thank for that. He was a living breathing wealth of knowledge on everything in and around the canyon which provided us a very complete picture of the past, present and future of the Canyon Desert. Ben let us "do our thing" while insuring our safety. This ride really makes you appreciate the beauty and awesomeness of nature and how fortunate we were to soak it all in.
