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

My husband and I took the tour - it was just the two of us and we went about a month after the flash flooding.

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. The Tomcars are great fun and the river crossings were... More

6 of us taking turns driving across the desert, the cliffs, the rocks, the wildlife, all fantastic. Alex was our tour guide - REQUEST him!!!! so knowledgable about the cactus, the animals, the landscape. He spooted snakes, toads, and spiders for us while leading us through the different cactus and land formations. Great time, great event, great tour guide!!!!

Alex is one high-energy ball of fun. We are really glad you enjoyed your tour and your guide. And, driving a Tomcar is certainly a "must do". After all, how many people can say they drove the same type of off-road military vehicle that troop around the world use. Thank you for choosing us. You just reinforced why we exist... More

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

Thank you so much for giving our adventure a 5 Star! We really appreciate you. Our Tomcar Sunset Tour is one of the best kept secrets in the Scottsdale area. It is like none other where you get to drive through the beautiful Sonoran Desert at night. The desert really comes alive at night and words can't adequately describe the... 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 have a simple motto here, "The Show Must Go On". As you saw, our guides are the best at making lemons out of lemonade. They know the hundreds of miles of trails like the back of their hand. And, the floods actually created some awesome new scenery for our guests. Thank you for your 5 Star rating. We rely... 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
