Southwest Adventures offers adventure camping tours in and around the national parks of Southern and central California. The tours are a combination guided excursion mixed with a road trip with friends; everyone helps around camp and are encouraged to explore each unique location for themselves by choosing from the many hikes and activities available. The result is a great shared experience that is also uniquely personal for each participant. Equipment and food is provided, but we rely on our customers to bring a desire and willingness to share, create and explore with each other.

I normally avoid group tours and this time it was the only option due to a tight schedule. Still, I very much enjoyed the trip. One day is a very short time, yet we could pack in a couple interesting hikes, the Noah Purifoy museum, and a visit of Pioneertown. The small group tour was very well organized and did... More

I went for the Death Valley tour and it was simply great! I saw so many beautiful places and I learned more about the region and the animals that live there (we saw quite a few of them during the trip). Aaron is very kind, talkative and knowledgeable, which makes him a great tour guide and travel companion. I would... More

What a fantastic day! Joshua Tree is such a special place and this was the perfect day tour to learn more about the park. The morning included a few touristy stops and then we had time to chose our own lunch in the town of Joshua Tree. The best part of the day were the 2 hikes and sunset views... More

This was so incredibly worth it! I travel to LA for work a lot and happen to have had a Monday appt, so I went early and spent the weekend on the overnight Joshua trip tour. This is a great way to check out Joshua Tree if you are a lone traveller or if you simply don't know how to... More

Aaron was an incredible guide, very kind and knowledgeable. The one day trip is incredible, lots of really interesting elements means the day is thoroughly interesting. The drive there and back is thoroughly comfortable. Joshua Tree really is a marvel, and is a must go-see if you are in LA. Get out, and explore! I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this... More

I highly recommend Southwest Adventures. My group went on the Death Valley Adventure in April 2014 I've been camping many times and found Aaron to be a consummate professional. The stopover in Randsberg was very nice and we got to meet the Mayor. The weather was wild while we were in Death Valley and Aaron got up in the wee... More

From Aaron being super-fast to respond to our email requests whilst we were in Australia to the final tour, it all scores five stars. Picked up from our hostel, driven out to Joshua Tree and many other sites you would miss if you drove yourself, in a comfortable van. The park was amazing and Aaron was great walking everyone around... More

Aaron was a great host - truly enjoyed my day trip to the Joshua Tree - I have lived here for years and had always intended to visit - having seen it on U2 album cover as a kid - and never did until now! Got a great deal through Goldstar - my mum was visiting from Scotland and she'd... More

I went on this tour with my husband -- we were looking for an active outing and a chance to get to know Joshua Tree. We found both and more with Southwest Adventures. An excellent guide, Aaron, drove us the 100 miles from L.A. in a comfortable van. Not having to drive made us able to enjoy the hiking and... More
