George was our guide to Joshua state park in Ca. He was extremely knowledgeable , very well versed in the area and gave us a history tour all along the route to the park. The park itself was amazing and George never disappointed us. Amazing details and stops throughout the park, Indian paintings, history of the rocks, all in all a wonderful 4-5 hrs. Would absolutely recommend the tour from big wheel tours.

This is not us in the photo, but we had a wonderful time! George, our guide, gave us tons of information and a very thorough tour of the park and surrounding area on the way to and from. We would highly recommend this tour to anyone who has not visited the park. It gives you a great overview of things to study in more detail when you have the whole day to spend.
