We live in Arizona and decided to play "tourist" for the day. So glad we did! We had a fantasitc afternoon exploring the Apache Trail with an incredibly knowledgeable and friendly guide, Glen The Prospector. Not only did we learn about the desert cactus and flora, but he told us stories of prospectors and Indian massacres and everything that brings... More

While visiting Goldfield Ghost Town, we noticed a 4x4 pulling in and went to check it out. Great idea. They had just gotten back from a tour of the desert, and we were able to arrange a tour on the spot. We chose a two hour tour, and had Dusty as our driver/guide. He and the tour were great. The...

My husband and I were looking for unique Arizona experiences. After joking about going prospecting, we found this tour! Glenn, The Prospector, took us on a Jeep tour to a dry wash where we received a quick lesson on the art of panning for gold. While we never saw any desert critters, we did find many pieces of garnet, a... More

Our guide "The Prospector" was so awesome..we enjoyed every minute. He really cares about the information he passes along. He is interesting and gives you the whole or several versions of the same story.. just to be sure. Having someone drive us was the way to go..we could all enjoy the sights..there too many to list. Five stars for sure.

Have been on pink jeep tours, and this one does them one better. It wasn't just about the off road ups and downs, it was about the stories and the knowledge that we were entertained with. It was a true learning experience. Dusty our guide really knew his stuff!

I've done the jeep tours and dessert tours - but this one was definitely the best - mostly because I was surprised to discover the most beautiful lakes and streams - right in the middle of the dessert! Our 2 hour tour came with a great guide - "Digger" (surely not his real name!) who was knowledgeable, helpful and took... More

Our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. That's why I recommend doing a guided tour. We could have driven the trail ourselves but wouldn't have been able to enjoy the views nearly as much. Plus, we would have spent tons of our own time researching things the guide was more than happy to tell us. He took pictures of us... More
