I recommend the guided tour. Yes, you can walk it on your own but the information garnered from those tour guides is well worth waiting for a scheduled guided tour. And besides, it's free. Lots of parking. Easy access. It is entirely on a boardwalk so it is completely accessible to the mobility challenged. Be warned though, it is a... 更多
We received a very warm welcome by the staff, and while we were disappointed that no more tours were being offered (early October) we still thought it was excellent. Who knew there was so much to learn about osoyoos climate, wildlife, flora, etc. It was a great walk along the wooden walkway and not busy. It was very enjoyable at... 更多
Pay to go on the trail and walk around the grounds. Do use caution though as there is Rattle snakes. Breath taking surrounding to take in
We spent an hour exploring the Desert Center and were amazed at the diversity of this desert ecosystem. The variety of plants, insects, birds and animal life presented and explained was surprising and very facinating. Well worth the time! The walk was all on boardwalk, easy going and nice and warm on a September day.
We visited here with three teens, two adults, and a senior....and a fantastic time was had by all! There is so much to see along the boardwalk. We did the self guided tour and spend ages walking along the boardwalk, enjoying the blazing sun. The staff were so nice and friendly...I would most definitely recommend a visit to anybody visiting... 更多
I was glad that we took the free, guided tour. The boardwalk made it easy for everyone, but be aware that you are out in the open and it will be hot with no shade. The guide provided information and had samples to show, so it was much better than just going around on your own.
Originally went just for a quick self-guided tour, but stayed for the guided tour. Well worth the wait to go on the guided tour. Our guide Thor was very knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. It was a wonderful experience and learned a lot about the desert. Highly recommend it if you're in the area.
A nice, long boardwalk trail. Bugs didn't bother us at all. The educational centre wasn't all that great, but the trail made up for it. Parking was easy.
We went for the 10 am guided tour. Our guide, Valerie, was marvellous! She was exceptionally knowledgeable, entertaining, and despite a larger than usual group size, projected her voice very well. The subtlety of the desert landscape would have been entirely lost without her. I highly recommend taking the tour! It was well worth the price of admission.
