What we do

rates

slide2At BBJE you rent and drive our Jeeps and follow our guides in a separate guide Jeep, on Big Bear’s exciting, challenging and history filled trails. Your guide will be in communication with you via 2-way radio the entire trip. The guides will be narrating the trip talking about indigenous plant and wildlife, mining history, off-road techniques, or our favorite subject talking about the Jeep’s.

While on our trips we will stop at the scenic and historic locations for photos. We encourage our guest to bring cameras, cell phones, go-pros or whatever device they would like to get photos. Our guides will even use your device to get photos of you driving over obstacles or with you group at an amazing location!

Our guides are there to help you. Before departing our guides make sure you are 100% comfortable with the Jeep and it operations. While on the trail if we approach a difficult obstacle our guide will negotiate that obstacle in front of you, showing you how to do it. Then you get to complete the same obstacle. If the obstacle is challenging or difficult enough to require a spotter then our guide will get out of their Jeep and spot you through the obstacle step by step.

All of our trips are family friendly. The Squeeze and John Bull Jr. are the most popular for groups with toddlers. If needed we will put your car seat in any of our Jeeps.
