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. Because we're family owned, and local to Arizona, we don't believe in cookie-cutter experiences...we have several offerings for families, couples, the more adventurous, group, and corporate guests. And because we're so near to most Scottsdale/Phoenix resorts, you'll be able to spend more time in the desert and less time in somebody else's van.We use the world's most comfortable off-road vehicles, have the best Adventure Guides and NRA Certified Firearms Instructors, and play in the most interesting terrain. 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! Adventure and our customized Top Shot Competitions. You'll have a Great Time! « less

While visiting Scottsdale, my husband decided to schedule a night tour of the desert for the family. Alex K. was our tour guide, and his enthusiasm was clearly apparent. The anecdotal notes he offered throughout the trip engaged all members of the family and made it informative and fun! We saw a Gila monster, bark scorpions, a black widow, a... More

We had a great time on our Desert Wolf tour. Unfortunately, flash floods wiped out some of their trails. They made lemonade out of lemons and we went on a beautiful trail and we can't wait to go again in the spring. The Arizona landscape is amazing and the guides at Desert Wolf are fun and knowledgeable. I would recommend... More

We did the BOOM! experience. The instructors Sean and Hunter were very patient and very knowledgeable. We did the firearms experience about four years ago, this was even better. We got to fire various weapons including an AK47, sniper rifle and a wild west (Buffalo Bill) repeating rifle at IEDs' and blow stuff up. I would recommend to anyone, especially... More

Me and my sister had a great day at the range. It was a great introduction into firearms and we enjoyed trying out the various weapons. The instructors Sean and Hunter were awesome and knowledgeable and I would love to come back later for the sniper course. /Emma

Friends of the family came to visit us here in Scottsdale and we decided to take them out to show them the beautiful Sonoran Desert surrounding the city. Finding desert wolf online and reading all their wonderful reviews made our decision very easy. You meet north of Phoenix at this really cool funky cowboy bar where we enjoyed great food... More

This was my second Desert Wolf tour in 5 years and the first one set a high bar as an amazing trip. I'm excited to say that Alex (our guide) smashed that bar and took our group on an adventure we'll never forget. As a regular visitor to the Phoenix area for vacations this trip should be a must do... More

My girlfriend and I were vacationing in Phoenix at the beginning of August. Instead of the usual touristy activities, we decided to go on a Tom-Car tour with Desert Wolf Tours. It's a different way to see the true beauty of Arizona. The Sonoran Desert is a site to see, especially driving through the back country. Alex was our guide,... More

Our family had a wonderful experience in July with Brandon as our guide. Driving the tomcar’s was a lot of fun - my husband and I both took turns at the wheel. At times it was a bit rough, but that added to the excitement. When we stopped for breaks, Brandon kept us and our younger kids engaged (aged 9... More
