The Western Destinations Ranch was the highlight of our trip to Phoenix and I cannot recommend it more highly. This was a business / social outing and everyone had a blast. We drank at the bar in a saloon with real swing doors, threw tomahawks, shot pistols and had a BBQ dinner under the stars. The setting is spectacular and... More

We were there with a business group and had such a fantastic time! Some people went horse back riding and some the Pink Jeep tour--all had nothing but positive comments! We took the Pink Jeep tour and had the best tour guide--so much great information and so much fun. The ranch is a wonderful recreation of the Old west with... More

The trip started with a cowboy and dog leading us onto the property. The horses in the corral were feisty and playful. There was such attention to detail everywhere you looked. The saloon had the swinging doors, the sinks in the restroom were buckets with river rocks in them. The picnic tables under the trees had metal boot vases of... More

Cowboys Kevin and Chris were great. Felt at ease from the time we arrived. Kids loved the horseback ride and the old town axe throwing, gun shooting, and bow shooting. Lunch was great. Can't miss on the hot dog, chicken, or burger. Getting picked up and dropped off at the hotel was a big plus. Thanks guys. The kids haven't... More

You start with a trail ride, and just when you think you need a break, you arrive at a cowboy town with a saloon you can have a cold drink or... More

Our day began as a freshly washed van arrived at our hotel to drive us to Canyon Creek Ranch. We were greeted as soon as the van doors opened by our guide for the day, Rusty. My husband and I are not experienced riders (have ridden a few times on vacations), but were introduced to our horses, instructions were given,... More

We had great time at Canyon Creek Ranch with our group of 8 people who are connected together through a Phoenix-based corporation. Many of us were novices on horseback, but we all enjoyed ourselves and had no troubles with our skill level on the horses. The area is beautiful and there are many activities to keep us all interested. I... More
