Private Guiding Rates
Mojave Guides' online reservation system requires full payment at the time of booking. Once a reservation has been completed all but a $100 deposit will be refundable up until 24 hours before your scheduled meeting time. After that time we will be happy to reschedule your program. If your program is canceled by your guide due to inclement weather or other unsafe conditions, Mojave Guides will issue you a pro-rated refund. Fear not, cancellations due to inclement weather don't happen often as Joshua Tree has abundant sunshine and mild temperatures!
Our Guests often reach out to us here in the office to ask about tipping standards within the guiding industry. If your guide has provided an exceptional experience while keeping you and your friends/family safe in a very busy park, a gesture of your gratitude would be well received. An average tip for a Half or Full day of climbing would be anywhere from $20 and $100. This typically amounts to less than, or equal to, the standard 20% we leave the waitstaff on a daily basis. Thank you for your support of the professional guiding industry and it's up and coming stars here in Joshua Tree :)
