Since taking this tour I have recommended it to several friends. Brandy is SO knowledgeable and can easily captivate the attention of both children and adults. She enthusiastically taught us about the desert landscape, animals, and their habitats. The kids loved feeding the fish and turtle and we all enjoyed trying some cacti! What a unique and fun experience. Do not miss the opportunity to take this tour - we didn't want it to end!

Wow! This tour is truly fantastic. Brandy is an incredible tour guide! Her knowledge of the desert plant and animal life is remarkable!! I've lived in the desert for 13+ years and learned so many new things on this tour. I've never eaten cactus (aside from prickly pear) and was surprised how good it was. Her tour was interactive and fun for my kids (2.5 and 4.5) my husband and even grandpa! This experience was one I won't forget! Thank you Brandy for sharing your expertise!

We went out with two 4YOs, a 2YO, and my 70YO FIL — and what a fun time every age group had.

We found nests, we burned jumping cholla for food, used prickly-pear insect-dye, ate cactus fruits, searched for Chuckwallas, spotted hawks, fed a turtle, explored an ancient kitchen... I mean, what more could a kid at heart ask for?

Brandi is so awesome. I really don’t know how she knows everything she knows, AND remembers all the names of everything. Say Jojoba.... yeah, me neither.

What a great little outing. Would happily recommend or experience again.

This is quite simply a terrific tour! Brandy's enthusiasm for the plant and animal life in the area is contagious! Her knowledge is extensive and she is a natural-born teacher. Not only did we learn a lot about the area but we had a fun, enjoyable time along the way.
