Highly recommend this tour! Our guide, Fox Robe was very informative and entertaining about a wide array of topics regarding this area of California. It was definitely more than expected! Shining moment: spotting a coyote and later hearing some!

This tour had it all, lots of interesting information and geological formations. The stars at night were amazing. It was so clear. Our guide was professional, friendly and able to answer all the questions thrown his way.
