Great trip. Steve was informative and fun to listen to. I'm not really into history but he made it so interesting. What a great guy too. The ride was so easy for my wife and I ,both in our 60s. Viator made it easy to book and even saved us a few bucks. The tour company called the day before to schedule a pickup a our hotel and the whole trip was flawless. Thank you Steve.
The weather was perfect and the landscape was very scenic from the recent storms! It was a very easy coasting ride. It was an addition treat to hear about the desert vegetation and how it was used in the past along the way.
It's truly a great downhill ride, but it doesn't follow the San Andreas fault. We could look at the fault from afar, but it's not apparent at all. The tour guides were good and we stopped for date shakes on the way back to our motel.
The bike trip was fantastic. It's an easy gradual ride downhill where you view the changing desert landscape. Our tour guide, Ron, shared lots of information about the area and little known facts. We would give Ron 5 stars, but I'm giving 4 stars because the process of signing up was a bit confusing on Viator you had a choice to select which hotel you were staying at for pickup, but the reality was, there was no hotel pick up. Also, having choice of times in the checkout process would have made it easier we had to call the tour company directly to find out the times available. These were little issues, but frustrating nonetheless, and could be an easy fix. The bike equipment was top-notch. And the date shakes were yummy!
This is an awesome bike tour through the canyon. We did with a couple of friends while vacationing in Palm Desert. Ok for most ages and biking abilities
