Thank you for your interest in our adventures.
Earlier in March, we had put in place protocols to protect the health of our guests and guides. This included among other things: deep sanitizing of the office and vehicles, limiting tours to smaller numbers of individual couples or small groups from one reservation, and using the larger vehicles even for just two people. This way we could use best practices and still have us all get a little escape from the headlines. The beauty of the desert can work its magic that way.
But, the Covid-19 crisis continues and the directive from our governor is clear. So we have suspended our tours through at least Wednesday, April 15. You may continue to book an excursion after that time online or on the phone. We will continue to monitor the situation with guidance from the authorities and adjust our schedule as appropriate. If future developments warrant it, you will be given a full refund for any tours booked after April 15 that, likewise, may have to be canceled. Please fee free to call us with any questions: 760-767-1232.
We hope that we will see you on the other side of this crisis. After weeks of sheltering at home perhaps desert tour companies will then be considered an “essential service” 🙂 Until then, from all of us, take care of yourselves and be safe.
