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.

This is one of the coolest thing's I've every done, it's like stepping back to the western age but instead of being on a horse your on a super durable super sturdy tomcat ATV. There are insane dips and beautiful scenery.One of the most important things on a tour is the guide and are guide Hunter was wonderful, he got... More

My friends and I took a morning 3 hours tour on June 27th. The reason I gave this tour a terrible rating is because I think the description of the tour is a little bit misleading. I was expecting a dynamic buggy style adventure where we would race through the desert. In reality you get to drive a tomcat atv... More

Dmitry, we are very sorry that you did not like your tour. From the sound of your review, it seems like you just selected the wrong type of desert adventure. We do not offer racing in the desert because it destroys the natural habitat, is unsafe and highly illegal. The trails dictate the speed and the maximum speed limit out... More

We had an awesome time! Hunter was an amazing guide,very knowledgeable! He made it fun and interesting; we even ate cactus! Before arriving, I was skeptical and nervous; but by the end I was so happy we went. The Tomcars are very easy to drive. We definitely recommend this tour if your in the Scottsdale area and want to add... More

In addition to the tomcar tour my son and I booked a firearm experience. When we booked it I was looking for a more comprehensive experience than just show up and shoot. While those were fun, I wanted my son to also get firearm and range safety instruction. Desert Wolf Tactical fit the bill to a tee. We cannot say... More

Our guide Ryan was very informative, ate some cactus in the desert! My husband and I shared a tom car so we could each take a turn driving. I ended up doing most of the driving, loved it. Have to have a strong grip on the steering wheel though when going through the rocky climbes. Great trip. Tom cars were... More

My family and I just took a half day tour with Kevin and he is the best. This is the only way to truly see the desert. The Tomcars are the only way to get throught the terrain. Highly recommend this tour. Kevin was very informative and fun. We definitely will do this tour again!

My family and I had a really great time with Kevin on the Desert Wolf Tour. Kevin was friendly and informative and definitely an asset out on the trails. Would recommend to anyone in the area looking for stunning desert views and a fun ride!
