Ensured comfort on ATV
Danielle_M, Feb 2024
We loved our guided Mayton & Trevor (aka Dessert Daddy). They ensured we felt safe and ready to go before leaving the practice area and offered options to those in our group who ultimately decided they were not comfortable ATVing and ultimately swapped to the UTV! They made sure it was a great day for all.
Thank god for UTVs!
Vanessa_M, Feb 2024
So much fun. Extremely well organized considering so much going on at once. Brilliant idea to allow test run and ability to switch to a UTV if ATV makes you nervous. I would definitely recommend this tour!!!
Great tour!!

Fantastic exciting ATV tour. Very scenic. Excellent and knowledgeable guide. Very robust and bumpy so do not go if you have any neck or back issues.
So much fun
Marsha_V, Feb 2024
We had a blast. So much fun. We were a little disappointed the when we booked nothing was said about the centipede trail not being for beginners. My one daughter did the atv ride while the rest of us switcher to the utv ride. It worked out well. The guides were very knowledgeable and made sure everyone was safe and comfortable. We would definitely book again when we visit.
Amazing experience. Best...

I had an incredible UTV Centipede tour yesterday with Sam leading the way! His enthusiasm and knowledge about the Arizona mountains made the experience truly memorable. What stood out was his thoughtful acknowledgment of my birthday during the tour – a delightful surprise that added a personal touch to the adventure. Sam's expertise, combined with his friendly and engaging manner, created an atmosphere of joy and excitement. Thanks to him, exploring the Arizona mountains on my birthday was an absolute blast!
Would do it again 100%

We had so much fun riding ATVs through the desert on the rough trails! Our tour guides Erik & Chris were fabulous :)
Awesome experience
Cherece_S, Jan 2024
Beau and Erik are great guides, knowledgeable of the area, wildlife, and history. Also, very personable with great customer service. We ended up doing UTVs due to the rain which I was happy about bc you get to ride further/longer than ATVs. Will do again!
Loved it
Chas_S, Jan 2024
I feel so bad because I can’t remember my tour guides name! But he was amazing. Me and my guy thought we were ATV ready but we were wrong lol so one of the employers took us on the UTV ride, just us and him. He was so helpful and informative. He took pictures of us, great pics. The tour itself was definitely an amazing experience overall for this city girl. We were very grateful for our tour guide so sorry I can’t remember his name I suck right now lol .
Mark_S, Jan 2024
