Short trip to visit relatives and we decided on an Apache Jeep Tour. Frank was an awesome tour guide! He had wonderful knowledge of the Superstition Mountains and the land around them. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour and recommend this tour to anyone who wants to get off the main road into the desert!

We had a great time on our tour with Frank. He did an amazing job of adjusting the tour so it was also enjoyable for our 3yr old daughter. He even offered her his scarf with she got chilly. His tour was not only educational but also comedic at times. We will definitely be doing this again! I have attached... More

I would recommend this to anyone who is in the area and wants to experience the desert as well as learn a little bit about the natural history of the land. It... More

The tour was a great experience and the guide was "Glen the Prospector" who was so entertaining and incredibly knowledgeable of the area and the history. He provided some very educational insight and resources. We loved experiencing the tastes of the land and learning how the natives and explorers used the natural resources to survive and succeed back in time.... More

This was the best part of our trip to Apache Junction. Dusty taught us a lot we never knew and was great with our 11 yr old son. Took the 1 HR trip and would recommend it to anyone.

My husband and I and our eleven-year-old son went on the two-hour gold panning tour this weekend and had a wonderful time. Our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable about the history of the area and the gold panning process. We found an ample amount of pyrite (fools gold) and garnet and even some real gold flakes!
