Owner description: Desert Wolf Tours is Scottsdale's #1 Ranked desert off-road and firearms experience! And, YOU get to drive an authentic TomCar. TOMCAR is smooth, fast, maneuverable and drives like no other off-road vehicle. As Arizona's foremost self-drive tour outfit, Desert Wolf Tours provides unique tours to proprietary attractions that no other company offers.

With access to hundreds of thousands of acres of Desert Wilderness just North of Phoenix full of Indian ruins, ghost towns, mines, river crossings and gorgeous vistas, our guests leave our tours exhilarated, and knowledgeable. Find out more about our day tours, night tours, Amazing Race Adventures, and unique firearms experiences including our Firearms 101, the Bucket List, the BOOM!

I was looking for a jeep tour of the desert and came upon this site. We really enjoyed this tour because you could drive the vehicle and we could all be together. Alex was the guide. He was very knowledgeable about the desert. The Tomcar was exciting to drive as it has large tire that easily climb over all the... More

A must do when visiting Phoenix/Scottsdale area. We did the 3-hr desert tour in Tom Cars and trust me when I say we spent 5% drive time on flat/paved roads and 95% drive time bouncing over rocks, traversing hills, crossing water, and seeing unbelieveable desert views. Definitely worth it and if possible, follow that up with their BOOM experience. They... More

We choose the 3 - 3 1/2 hour adventure. Our tour guide Alex, was really nice and highly energetic. The trip consisted of off-roading to and ancient native (Indian) fortress, where Alex explained the native flora of the area. We then drove to another overlook and had another lesson in the natural plants of the Sonoran desert. Then we headed... More

Thank you very much for your feedback. We obviously failed to deliver you a 5 Star experience. I am very sorry and know that we all take that to heart. It sounds like you would have had a 5 Star experience had we not failed to live up to your expectations regarding the vehicle reliability. One thing you said that... More

My wife and I and our friends did something we thought we'd never do - fire guns! Hunter and Greg were great and we would recommend this adventure to anyone.

Great time for a private tour of the desert driving the rough and rugged Tomcar vehicle. Alex and his assistant were attentive to my husband and myself that we couldn't recommend anyone better than these two men. We were able to experience being right out there close up in the desert where we were able to learn first hand his... More

My husband and I loved our tomcar and firearms combo. Our guides, Alex and Greg, tailored the experience just for us, since we were the only ones on the tour today. My husband enjoyed the desert driving, and the ride was much less bumpy feeling than it looked. We got lots of information about the desert and did a little... More

Alex lived up to all the great reviews about him. Our desert adventure was over the top! My husband was in his glory driving that buggy on the trails. Our seats were very comfortable. I have back issues, but had no problems. Alex was very attentive to everyone and such an encouragement. We learned a lot about the desert. Our... More

My husband and I signed up for a dessert buggy trek with wolf tours as they had come highly recommended by our concierge. On arrival we were met by Alex, one of the most approachable, encouraging and knowledgable people I have ever met. What followed was epic. Driving the buggy (tomtom) through dessert, up rocky outcrops, down stony hillsides, through... More
