I am an experienced off-road driver, and high desert explorer; I want to share my passion and knowledge in the local flora, fauna, breathtaking vistas, and geology. I want my guests to appreciate and discover the magic of the high desert, so I take them through areas that are inaccessible to the general public. As a keen 4WD enthusiast, I take groups to explore and experience the unparalleled beauty of the Mojave Desert.

Really unique, exciting two hour adventure to round out my short trip out to Joshua Tree. I was a solo traveler but Steve and I became fast friends in the Humvee, and he wowed me with his extensive knowledge of the area, specifically the diverse plant life. We rode out to see the giant Joshua Trees, which were much larger than any I had seen in the National Park. Turns out Steve is a great photographer and snapped a bunch of cool shots of me by and on top of the vehicle in front of the trees - really nice. Had a great time solo but imagine it would also be fun for a small group. First time in this type of off-road setting, and it didn’t disappoint.

Steve was a wonderful guide! The offroading was so much fun and he taught us a lot about the local flora and fauna. Great experience, awesome rocks, and I'd love to go again the next time I'm visiting!

Steve took us to some of the remotest places in the desert. He is a great off roader and has a passion for the desert.

Exciting and Fun! Not much to do in Pioneertown, this was a fun way to go out and see the Joshua Trees. Steve was our driver. He was very knowledgeable of the area and offered to take pictures of us with my phone. The pictures were awesome! I would definitely book them again and would love to bring m kids next time.

We booked the experience last minute and I am so glad I did! I wish I had booked 3 hours, our driver Steve was fantastic. He had a deep knowledge of the area; very good driver and explained all the different plant/trees throughout Joshua Tree and he personalized the tour to our interests. Thank you Steve!

Wild west and history wrapped into one. Adventure with nostalgia - with a bit of archaeological wonder and botany! This is great if single or as a family!
