The driver was a nice...
, Oct 2021
The driver was a nice guy, but he drove too fast, and it felt more like a roller coaster ride, and therefore, it was hold to relax and enjoy the experience.
Fun tour -- bumpy but fun!!!
, Oct 2021
More than we thought it would be! We did see almost 10 bison -- not close up, but they were definitely there basking in the sun! The tour guide made sure to give us plenty of time to zoom in our pictures. He was a great driver -- a little difficult to understand, but oh well -- he kept us safe, very entertained, and he had so many historical facts of the island. Definitely worth the cost of the tour!!! p.s., it's a bumpy ride but fun! Even though it was bumpy and a dusty narrow road, we felt very safe with this professional!
Don’t do it!!

Tour guide was awful. Could not understand half of what he said. Was disappointed that the trip took us to the airport and back. I would’ve thought it would’ve been more to the tour I was especially interested in seeing the Wrigley gardens. It also was VERY uncomfortable. It felt like being in a truck without shocks.
Wouldn’t suggest it

You could not understand guide. Very uneventful the price was not worth experience. I was disappointed.
Safari trip
, Aug 2021
No animals to be seen! To call this trip a safari is a bit of a stretch and is quite misleading. It’s a bumpy ride and not what I was expecting. Tour guide was very cool and had a great attitude.
Safari that never happened
, Jun 2021
When we arrived we were told the open air vehicle pictured would be replaced by a 15 year old van with tinted windows that don’t open, and would be making only one stop. We declined and asked for a refund. Other tours were booked solid for the day so we missed out. l-(

Awesome and fun!

The safari tour was great! The drive, the views, and the commentary from the guide was great! The ride in that huge vehicle was in it self such a crazy, cool experience!
Best Tour Ever!
, Jun 2021
Mike was a very knowledgeable tour guide! We loved learning the history & present day info about Catalina Island. This tour is by far the best, most comprehensive, tour out of all the other choices. More than worth the price. Would HIGHLY recommend!!!
Big truck adventure
, Jun 2021
Good way to see Catalina island California. Very informative talk by driver Mike and good driving over mostly dirt road.
Taxi is cheaper.
, Jun 2021
All this does is drive you to the air port and back. You may or mayn't see anything at all. Could of paid for a taxi ride up and back for way less and seen the same thing, which on this trip was NOTHING.
