He made learning about the desert fun. (Ask him to show you about the red dye.). The TomCar was amazing! The road was very rough. I... More

Brandon led the trip, which was 2/3 joy ride, and 1/3 learning about the desert and history of the region. It really was an adventure ride (I didn't do the driving), over rocks, through rivers, up hills and at 45 degrees up embankments. Brandon was incredibly knowledgeable, articulate, and well read on the area. Friendly, too. We would want him... More

This trip was by far the best thing we did when we were in Scottsdale. The cars were an absolute blast to drive and Alex made our adventure one to remember. We learned about the wild life, the desert and the cactus. We actually learned how to cut open and eat the jumping cactus. Sort of tasted like key wee... More

The Tomcars are great to get through all the obstacles you will face on the 3hour tour. You will be happy to share the driving as you need to keep a firm grip on the steering wheel. Our guide, Alex really made the tour special with his personalized attention and concern for each guests safety and enjoyment. This is a... More

Yesterday 4 of us had a great tour with Brandon who is extremely knowledgeable about the Sonoran desert and its rich flora and fauna. We came across a western diamondback rattlesnake which allowed Brandon to demonstrate his snake whispering skills. It was a wonderful outing and we learned so much.
