Veteran Tour Guide Nancy Cohee moved from Los Angeles to the Coachella Valley in 1988. She expanded upon her love of the region by hiking and biking across the valley, taking college classes and self-study to enhance her knowledge of the desert and its environment, geology, history of the Cahuilla Indians, and growth.
Her enthusiasm and knowledge led her to become a professional tour guide in 1996, when she became a Desert Adventures guide, opening an exciting next phase of life experience that continues today and has lasted for over 20 years. She founded Tallgrass Hiking and Tours in 2002, providing hiking tours, group sightseeing, custom tours, seminars and group presentations
“My goal is to enjoy the desert and share the history and beauty with others,” said Cohee. “To inform and entertain and to bring awareness of the little-known east end of the Coachella Valley is my particular passion -- our agriculture industry and all that we grow in this dry desert, as well as the major importance of the Salton Sea to our migratory birds and our desert environment.”
In addition to Nancy, we have a network of Professional Guides. All of our guides and staff are professionals with a wide range of knowledge and experience that will entertain you. They bring a love of the desert and the desire to share the Coachella Valley with our visitors
