We had an an exhilarating ride through the desert where we travelled over some very rough rock strewn patches and a lot of dusty roads. We stopped a couple of times in different areas and learned some interesting facts about... More

We went on the Green Zebra March 26, 2014. We were really excited because we wanted to get dirty, have an adrenaline rush and see some desert. What was marketed was not what was given. We went about 10mph on a dusty road to look at horses. The first stop learning about the cacti was neat and very interesting but... More

Dear Drumdaisy, Thank you for your feedback on our tour! Your comments are greatly appreciated! As far as speed, there are several factors that impact this including dust levels, the amount of the cars out, and rocky terrain areas on the trails. On this specific day, our professional guides must have believed that the speed and pace set were the... More

Jim from Green Zebra picked my daughter and me up from the Royal Palms and the adventure began. He was a wellspring of knowledge; there is something singular about a guide who loves where he is and what he is doing. ; ) He let us in on facts and lore, trivia and more re. Arizona, Phoenix, the Sonoran Desert,... More

Gave a first hand painful demostration of what happens when a cactus barb gets on your skin. The trip would have been great but we several of the groups cars kept breaking down. The... More

Dear Blankenboat, Thank you for your helpful comments that explained what you liked and what you did not. Our guides are awesome and I will pass along your praise of their professionalism. To address the dust levels as well as vehicle breakdowns, unfortunately those are aspects out of our control. In the desert, dust is always a factor; even more... More

Dear Ariel M, Families are a tremendous joy to have on the tour! Our guides love taking families out to see parts of the Indian reservation that can only be seen by driving further out into the desert, such as the wildlife. Thank you for joining us and for your nice comment! Sincerely, Michelle Spokojny More

Our concierge was adamant that this was the tour to do. My wife and I were picked up at our resort by John, our guide, and driven to a pristine desert reserve, not open to the public. Our Tomcar was waiting for us when we got there and after a brief but thorough instruction on how the car is controlled... More

We had an excellent time on this outing! It was fun driving the TomCars and the guide (John) was very informative and pleasant. In addition to the fun driving around and seeing the desert up close, we also saw wild horses, cattle, quail, etc. Learned a lot about desert plant life too. Definitely worthwhile and better than letting someone else... More
