COVID-19 / Coronavirus update

First and foremost, we hope you are taking every action you can to be safe from the COVID-19 / Coronavirus Pandemic that has devastated the world.  Your health and safety are first on our mind and all we can do is send you our well wishes, hope, vibes, and support from Joshua Tree.  At the onset of the COVID-19 / Coronavirus Pandemic, we all initially thought it would be like the common flu we experience every year but it has been much different.  We are not doctors and definitely not involved in the politics of it all.  We just want you to be safe and considerate to everyone around you until we can all meet up again and enjoy Joshua Tree the way it should! Boots on the ground!

When COVID-19 / Coronavirus first hit, we started to think, “HOW CAN WE HELP PEOPLE COPE WITH ALL OF THIS?”  We knew people still wanted to travel and 3,000,000 of you wanted to visit Joshua Tree so we had a brainstorm-sesh.  That is when we started creating our “VIRTUAL TOURS” of Joshua Tree.  Although there have been travel bans, state lockdowns, and more, we still wanted to keep our sense of adventure alive and share it with you.

We will do our best to keep this RED COVID-19 / CORONAVIRUS banner up to date with all of the latest details about Joshua Tree.  As of December 12, 2020, the Joshua Tree National Park has closed all of its facilities, campgrounds, and programs.  The Visitor Center and the gates to the National Park are OPEN so you can still drive through the Park.  Most local businesses are closed.  Restaurants are take-out only.  Hotels are only open for essential travel. This information and what is impacted is changing daily.   Our best advice is to ALWAYS web search if there are any travel bans and/or if the specific locations you’re looking for are open or not.

If you are looking for something fun, challenging, and educational to do while we wait out this COVID-19 / Coronavirus pandemic to pass, we love your support of our local business.  Our (3) VIRTUAL TOURS are obviously COVID-19 / Coronavirus compliant because you will complete them in the safety of your own home.  You will solve clues, riddles, puzzles, and ciphers as we show you around the area in an Indiana Jones meets Escape Room mash-up.  We promise you will love it and will definitely help ease the tension and anxiety we all feel during these times.  Try the first two locations of each tour for free.  

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR SUPPORT.  Support all of the local businesses here in Joshua Tree however you can.  We are a small community trying to keep it together until you can visit us again in-person… face-to-face… smiling and laughing all the day through.

VILLAGE WALKING TOUR (VWT):

Our “Joshua Tree: VILLAGE WALKING TOUR” is a fun way to make sure you see all that the Joshua Tree Village has to offer.  As you visit each unique location, we will challenge your mind with puzzles, ciphers, clues, and riddles.  Solve each one to move on to the next location or choose to skip the clue and move on.  We make sure you will have fun and complete the WHOLE adventure no matter what.  You can choose to walk the 1.5 to 2.5 miles or drive from location to location.  We will have you start and finish at the Joshua Tree Visitor Center (JTVC).  Dive into 18 enhanced experiences that will remain with you forever.  We will teach you about Jim Morrison, Village Secrets, Artwork, the best food, and SO MUCH MORE!!!  Don’t just visit the park, see what most people miss out on during their visit to Joshua Tree.

NATIONAL PARK TOUR (NPT):  

  • (25) LOCATIONS
  • 76 MILES
  •  ABOUT 3-4 HOURS
  • USES CLUEKEEPER APP

Our Joshua Tree: NATIONAL PARK TOUR will add a little bit of fun as you travel through the Joshua Tree National Park. You will start at the Joshua Tree Visitor Center (JTVC) on Park Boulevard and end at the 29 Palms Inn.  As you visit each unique location, we will challenge your mind with puzzles, ciphers, clues, and riddles.  Solve each one to move on to the next location or choose to skip the clue and move on.  Our APP works with “zero cellular service” so you will be able tocomplete the WHOLE adventure.

Your biggest prize is our PDF file that you will get with your purchase.  We created a stop-by-stop checklist for you to follow along as you make your way through this MASSIVE National Park.  We include every single possible stop, all 141 of them, but chose the 25 most notable and photogenic locations for you to experience during the Tour.   The Park is so huge that it could easily take you over 26 hours to visit, but we shorten it to 3+ hours.  Our checklist will help you keep track of where you are throughout your day so you can gauge how far you are into the park and how much longer you will be without cellular service.  YES, there is ZERO cellular service inside the Park so having our checklist will be worth a million dollars!

ENJOY THIS GLORIOUS NATIONAL PARK!  We think it is the most beautiful of the 61 National Parks across the United States of America and the best of the 9 National Parks in California. 

THE SECRET TOUR MINI (TSTM):
