The tour was excellent. We all enjoyed the time on the ATV. The staff was great. Staff provided water and made sure we were safe.
Fun in the Sun!

Tim was our tour guide and he was awesome. The whole place was well run. They book tours in 3 hour increments. The first hour is to get you checked in. We arrived on time and had to wait around. We walked around and chatted with a couple of employees and other passengers. The tour was two hours long. You start by going up into the mountains. This is not for the faint of heart. You spend some time on stretch that isn't all that exciting (but it is very scenic). Then it is back thru the mountains to home base. I would do it again!
Great Experience - very adventurous!

Despite an accident on the interstate that caused us (and everyone else that day too) to completely miss our scheduled time the staff vas very accommodating and still managed to get everyone on the trails. Our guide Tim was fantastic and the entire experience was better than I could have hoped for! I would absolutely recommend to everyone!
Best excursion near Scottsdale

One of our favorite excursions while visiting Scottsdale . They are very flexible and very accommodating. Trails are well marked and super fun ! Highly recommend . We rented the UTV . If your not experienced with shifting , then take a four wheeler . Trails are hilly and fun ! Loved it !
