Description: Desert Wolf Tours is Scottsdale's #1 Ranked desert off-road and firearms...
Desert Wolf Tours is Scottsdale's #1 Ranked desert off-road and firearms Adventure! Better yet, we were named THE BEST OFF-PREMISES EXCURSION IN THE WORLD by TravelGolf and were just inducted into the TripAdvisor HALL OF FAME for earning their prestigious Certificate of Excellence for the 5th year in a row! At Desert Wolf Tours, YOU get to drive an authentic military-grade TomCar UTV. A Tomcar is smooth, fast, maneuverable and drives like no other off-road vehicle. Even if you've driven consumer grade UTVs and ATVs made by Polaris, Kawasaki, Yamaha, etc., you've never driven a military-grade UTV! They glide over the rocky terrain, leaving all others in the dust!! (We actually use these same vehicles that you will be driving in Arizona Search and Rescue missions.) 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 Top Guns Adventure, the Bucket List and our customized Top Shot Competitions. You'll have a Great Time! NOTE - ALL OF OUR DESERT OFF-ROAD TOURS LEAVE FROM THE WORLD FAMOUS ROADRUNNER RESTAURANT AND SALOON, JUST A FEW MILES NORTH OF PHOENIX ON I-17.

My husband and did the half day tour and I must say the tour guide Kevin was awesome. He was very experienced with the terrain thorough with information of the desert. The tom cars were excellent and we did not get bumped around as a jeep feeling. We really enjoyed the day and although Arizona hit 115 degrees, we truly... More

If you can splurge and afford this, go for it. My family of 4 had a great time on our 1/2 day tour with Kevin. Small tour, only one other car. Tom cars are great for the terrain. We had a bit of trouble with ours but Kevin fixed it in about 2 minutes. Disappointed we did not see any... More

Our trip was incredible! It was only my wife and I and another couple so it was not an overcrowded trip. We did the night tour and got to see a diamond back rattler as well as scorpions we spotted with our black lights. Our guide was very interactive and a lot of fun. I drove most of the time... More

My husband and I did the Sunset ATV Hunting tour. It was a great tour. My husband loved driving the Tom Tom car. The trail was dusty and rugged. We felt like we were riding into the desert on our trusty modern steeds. The sunset stop was gorgeous. Just as the sun was about to set, thick clouds rolled in... More

Took the 1/2 day adventure with Kevin. It was a super fun and surprisingly smooth ride given the terrain. The Tom cars were easy to drive and allowed us to travel the rocky terrain with relative ease while still taking in the scenery. Kevin was very knowledgable about the different aspects of the wildlife, geography, and vegetation, but interspersed this... More

Desert Wolf Tours was great! We had a hard time choosing from all the jeep tour options in the area, but we're so glad we chose this one. Getting to drive the Tom Cars over the rocky terrain ourselves was the best part of the adventure. Hunter was a fantastic guide and taught us a lot about the desert. He... More

Our entire family went on the Desert Wolf Tomcar experience. We have been on many such tours but this one far exceeds the others. The vehicles are well maintained and a great deal of fun to drive. The thing that truly sets Desert Wolf apart is the guides. Our guide Hunter was fabulous. His knowledge of the ecosystem and ability... More

I had been in Scottsdale on business for 3 days, and saw many flyers for Tom car tours of the Sonoran desert. I knew I must do this before I left, but as I called around most said they were closed due to the excessive heat. I took to TripAdvisor and found Desert Wolf tours still had 5 star reviews... More

This is our first family trip from LA to Arizona. My 10 years old and 7 years old boys like it. We had a fun trip. Though it's very dusty, well, so what? Enjoy the natural theme and being in the desert.
