“Wayne and I wanted to thank you again for our fantastic tours of Joshua Tree National Park. You were so kind to give us our own SUV and driver because we booked two tours back-to-back. Gary was so knowledgeable and took us exactly where we wanted to go, as well as special places he knew of in and around the park. We never would have seen the gravesites of Johnny Lang and Worth Bagley if we had not booked our tours with you. Due to a dead battery the day before our tours with Big Wheel Tours, we missed seeing some sites, but Gary was able to work them in to our full day with him. The sandwiches and snacks were delicious and we had a most enjoyable day. By the end of our tours, we had made a new friend and I felt like I had known Gary my entire life. Your company is so well-run and your communication with clients is just superb. You, Gary and Big Wheel Tours let us see Joshua Tree National Park like few people ever get to see. Thank you again for such wonderful service. “Beverly P. Tampa, FL
