      Great city tour!
      This was such a great way for us to view the highlights of the city with opportunities to stop and take pictures. Our tour guide, Bob, was so personable. He made the tour a lot of fun and he shared a lot of great facts and details! This tour was a perfect way to get to know the city!

      Great first tour
      Mike was very knowledgeable and friendly. This was the perfect tour to kick off my first day in Phoenix. After the tour I was comfortable enough to explore downtown Phoenix by myself and felt I knew the areas well enough. Thank you Mike!

      First trip to AZ! We had a great time today learning about Phoenix and Arizona that we wouldn't have known just driving around.R
      It was day before booking because we didn't know the traffic and places to see in Phoenix. We learned so much about the area and history.

    This was a fantastic tour of an area I have visited several times but knew little of the back history. Bob, our guide, shared his extensive knowledge of the indigenous people in the Superstition/Apache Junction area of Arizona. I learned what tribes lived here, where some migrated from, and how they constructively lived together to survive in this arid region.
    Bob, also has great skills with the camera phone that he shared with us for a fun, photo taking experience. The views were spectacular. I would highly recommend this air conditioned, van tour with with Bob who was a great host, providing everything you need, from stories to cold bottled water for a fabulous experience in the Sonoran Desert.

    Tour was very enjoyable. Kathleen had a lot of passion and she had a lot of informative and interesting bits of information about the area. It was evident that she wanted to give us the best tour she possibly could. It was nice to see the Sonoran desert and all the vegetation.

    Fabulous trip from Scottsdale to the desert.

    Kathryn, the guide was excellent with so much knowledge about the landscape, history and fauna (I didn't know there were so many varieties of cactus 🌵)

    We also stopped for a hike, lots of photo shoots and a visit to Superstition Mountain Museum which includes The Apacheland Movies Ranch.

    Elvis Presley filmed 'Charro' here and shot the cross off the church spire.

    I highly recommend this trip.

    Kathleen guided our tour, and she made it very enjoyable! Being an AZ resident, I appreciated learning about the area we visited. She made sure to ask if there was anything else we wanted to see/learn more about during each stop. Her passion for photography and AZ shined through the entire tour. She assisted with making sure we took photos & captured these memories at the right moment. Highly recommend this tour for visitors and locals alike.

    Loved this tour. Kathleen was our driver and guide and iPhone picture Goddess . Took us to spots I would not have gone myself, showed us the best shots to take and how to use the darn camera correctly! Who knew an iPhone could take such pictures.
    I was on the tour specifically to take reference photos for my art projects and she was a great help.
    The scenery is stunning. I highly recommend this tour

    This tour is a must do!
    Bob , my guide was very knowledgeable, entertaining and thoughtful. I was a solo traveller and went out of his way to put me at ease.
    I have learnt a lot of great information about the history of the region, as well as admiring incredible views. I particularly enjoyed discovering a lake in the middle of the desert, suspicion mountain and the ghost town nearby.

    We took this trip on a pretty rainy day, so we chose to omit the small hike part. However, Holly still did a great job showing us the sites and explaining about the plants and animals in the desert. We also stopped at an old mining town for lunch, and a little exploring around the shops there. Good day trip!

    From the time you are greeted by "Holly" (our tour guide person) to dropp off time, I enjoyed every moment. Very knowledgeable about the areas and history- tied with great driving! The locations - don't want to give up any surprise, were all perfect. Relaxed, not rushed to enjoy the drive and all the stops. It is great to do this tour so you can enjoy, see more and not have to worry about the driving - specially on the long curve road!!

    Kathleen was an amazing tour guide, giving us lots of information all along the way, taking photos for us, teaching us the best way to take our own photos, and educating us on the landscape and local points of interest. She was very knowledgeable about all the areas we visited and made sure we were having a good time. She accommodated us with a little more time when we needed it and was a friendly and caring tour guide. I would highly recommend her to others.
