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 unparallel beauty of the Mojave Desert.

Steve and Henry were great. Henry was responsive to my questions and kept in touch the day of. Steve, our driver, was very knowledgeable. We ran into a little issue but Steve handled it perfectly and safely. Henry followed up when we came back too. The ride was truly a magical experience and so much fun. If you are looking for a truly unique experience book this tour.

Highlight of our stay, thank you to our driver Steve for taking us on an epic tour of the desert 🏜️ Ancient Rock was especially interesting and that quick little fast climb up that quartz hill was so exciting!

This experience is awesome, a must-do! Steve is the OG of Joshua Tree, a true gem who is not only super knowledgeable about the landscape and plant life but is also extremely friendly and professional. He made sure that we had the best time and we’re comfortable w/ blankets, towels, etc and all the photos we could want. We can’t wait to come back!

What a wonderful visit to the backcountry desert! The landscape is just phenomenal, and going on rough dirt roads gave us access to stunning vegetation, trees, and little creatures of all kinds. We got a glimpse of some homesteads and heard stories of how folks live up there. We were especially taken by the huge Joshua trees and junipers. Our host Steve was very friendly and shared his obvious love of the plants and landscape. We just loved this trip and would highly recommend it!
