    This was my first jeep tour experience and Allen made it a great one!! He made sure we were comfortable by bringing extra blankets as it was cold in the desert. He was very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend this company’s jeep tour.

    This Sonoran Desert Jeep Tour was the best part of our Scottsdale trip! Steve was our tour guide and he was the absolute best! So knowledgeable about the desert and everything in it, he was also a lot of fun and made sure that we had a blast! The views were to die for, I would recommend this tour to anyone and may even have to do it again ourselves someday
    Beautiful Cacti Views

    Nick was knowledgeable and made the trip fun. This is a nice way of getting out during the pandemic. The only suggestion is to have a small selection of souvenirs available for the group to purchase afterwards.
    Excellent Outdoor experience

    Our tour guide, Trevis, was very knowledgeable and friendly. My 10 year old daughter loved the ride and learning about the desert environment. We had a great time and I would highly recommend for kids.
