Traveler Tips

  • "Make no mistake, this is a real, off-road, desert trail so the going can get rough, you are going to get dirty, and your nose is going to collect enough dust to create a small island so be prepared."

Great ATV Ride

This was a great event. It was a little difficult to find, but worth it. We are planning on going again.

Great experience. Nice and friendly staff. This was my first time riding an ATV and it was a great experience. Everything was explained well and after about 30 minutes, I felt much more comfortable on the ATV.

Guided or Un-Guided ATV FUN!
, Aug 2020
In town for the weekend and this was a great activity to do while in AZ. Viator ATV riding was so fun. Friendly staff, good prices, and fun trails for all skill levels to ride unguided. They provided cold waters when we took a break and new head socks for every rider which was great and sanitary. We will definitely be back when in the area.
Best ATV experience
, Aug 2020
I love that we were able to just get comfortable with the ATVs on beginner trails on our own. Josh explained the different intermediate/expert trails and was very clear how the terrain and experience level should be if we decide to explore. Then, there was an option to switch to A guided UTV without an additional charge. Josh was so helpful and fun! He provided our time and exchanged contact information for assistance if needed. We decided to explore the intermediate/expert trail and someone in our group happened to have a small incident and went off the trail.. Josh showed up right away to get the ATV out of the ditch and we enjoyed the rest of our time. We were worried about what he may say to us but he joked and reassured us advising it was common in that area and lightened the mood. We would definitely do this again!
Worth every penny!!!
, Mar 2020
First: The only reason I gave this tour a “4” is for a minor oversight when our tour guide forgot to give my daughter gloves and she got blisters on her hands. My daughter says it’s really only minus .25 because it was soooo worth it) Now: I’m 52, work out a bit and like challenges so I really wanted to try ATVing. They took me on the test track after a mini lesson and realized I was out of my league, my newbie daughter had no problems. I ended up in a UTV. I’m a nutshell: Awesome 2 hours for both of us. Great peek at and learned a little bit about the unexpectedly colorful Sonoma desert. I’m gonna work on my arm strength just so I can attempt the ATV for next time... And gloves aside, Cody was a friendly, attentive, professional tour guide. Worth every penny!!!
had a blast!

This was a ton of fun. Robert our guide was absolutely friendly and knowledgeable. Didn’t spend a lot of time on instruction which meant we had more time on the trails.
