My family took the TomCar tour with Alex. Tons of fun! My wife and daughter drove and loved it. Beautiful desert scenery. Alex showed us plant life and some Indian ruins. Climbed up on a fort. He took pictures of everyone. Alex made the trip great. Very enthusiastic, fun and made us feel safe. Recommend highly.

This tour is crazy cool! My, husband, teenage daughter & I did the Tomcar & firearms experience. We thoroughly enjoyed both! Brandon is a walking encyclopedia of everything in sight! He made everything fun and interesting. Hunter was such a great firearm instructor. Neither my daughter nor I had ever even held a gun, so we were quite the challenge-... More

Brandon was absolutely awesome on our tomcar adventure - very knowledgable about the desert and fun too! Hunter made our gun experience safe and amazingly fun as well. We will be talking about this fun for a long time and encouraging people to do it.

My husband bought me a Desert Wolf Adventure for Christmas last year. I finally booked my tour. It was amazing! I was the driver. Brandon was our guide. He was very informative and knowledgeable. 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

Wow! It is an absolute honor that you consider your Desert Wolf adventure the best Christmas present ever. Your husband is obviously a very smart man. :) The Tomcars are amazing vehicles and do smooth out these rough trails. Sometimes people don't really understand just how rough some of these trails are until they try it with another type of... More

As you pointed out, this is a "lifetime" experience. Everyone should do this at least once. Those that don't just don't know what they are missing. There is so much beauty, adventure and excitement to be experienced when you get behind the wheel of our military grade Tomcars and go off-roading on some of the best trails in the world.... More

I came to Scottsdale on a girls trip, and had an Amazing time driving and riding in the Tom Car adventure tour! Our tour guide, Brandon, was so thorough with explaining the history of Phoenix and pointing out all the types of vegetation! This is a MUST do activity!!!

Thank you so much for sharing your review. Many times people think that our adventures primarily appeal to men, but as you show, women and kids love them too. In fact, 50% or more of our guests are women. Phoenix does have a very interesting history and the Sonoran Desert is a beautiful place teaming with fauna and flora that... 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

The trip was fun, taking the car through the trails. It could go over anything. Alex is a good guide.

Due to our historically heavy rains in August and September, the trails have changed a lot. Let's just say that some areas are very "challenging" right now. But, as you saw, you are in good hands in the Tomcar. They are a beast that can handle just about any terrain, and do it incredibly smoothly. You see why they are... More
