We had a great time and would highly recommend them. Our driver Frank was the best, he has great stories and a lot of local knowledge.

We took the 60-minute desert tour and loved it! The driver pointed out various points about the area, the plants, etc. and the beauty was just spectacular. At one point, the driver "demonstrated" why one needs to avoid the "teddy bear" cactus and made a...More

Took the 2 hour Apache Trail Tour. I thought it would have been a little more off-road than on-road considering that they tell you to wear closed-toe shoes. It basically was just a drive up the Apache Trail at 50mph the entire way. We could...More
