I couldn't ask for a better review. It sounds like your experience was exactly what I intended when I started this company 22 years ago. Ben is our newest guide so I am happy to hear that he is carrying on the Big Wheel tradition.

We had poor weather expected and limited time in the area, so taking this tour was perfect! Anita showed us all of the highlights and personalized the tour with our feedback. Great first time visit to Joshua Tree. We were able to have fantastic photo opportunities too.
