Disappointed

Disappointed with the experience. The "jeep" tour was in a Toyota Seqouia (barge). Very few passing references to the San Andreas Fault. We would have worn different footwear if we knew that hiking was a big part of the tour. Overpriced

We had a great time on this tour. Our “Jeep” was a Toyota 4-runner, which was way more comfortable than a Jeep and still got us to all the off-road places our guide wanted to show us. Cody was an awesome guide. He was very knowledgeable, as well as friendly and fun!
