This was the second time we booked Desert Wolf TomCar tours because we had such a great time two years ago. Derik and Brandi were great guides and we had a GREAT time riding through the desert. Derik was very knowledgeable about the desert flora/fauna/critters and Brandi did a great job driving the lead TomCar. I highly recommend Desert Wolf tours for a fun time outdoors and getting dusty and dirty!

My wife and I decided to do the TomCar ATV tours, and we are really glad we did. We could have rented ATV's anywhere and sped around the desert like any idiot tourists. Instead, we jumped at the chance to drive Israeli Military ATV's on a guided tour.

Jay, our guide, was awesome. Very cool and very knowledgeable of the plants, animals and history of the area. It was really cool to drive these machines, developed and used by the Israeli armed forces. They're not the fastest ATV's out there but they are tough as hell and they got us over or through anything we pointed them at. We stopped a few times along the way for breaks and for Jay to show us cool things we would have never known otherwise. Best of all, we did it without destroying the habitat.

We highly recommend this ATV tour to anyone who is looking for something fun and unique to do in the area. If we ever return for another trip we definitely want to try out the machine guns!!!

Travis was a fabulous guide! You could tell that he really cared about the guests. We were late (forgot about the 15 minutes early thing) and he was still very kind and gracious toward us. You could tell as he shared his own experiences that he has a good understanding of what he is talking about and also a big love for the outdoors and for adventure. The vehicles were also super tough and able to handle pretty rough and rocky terrain.
Thanks for everything Travis!
One thing we would recommend is adding a little reminder about the need of being 15 minutes early, in the text that is sent the day of the tour.
Thanks Desert Wolf Tours! You guys rocked it!

We are delighted to hear that Travis went above and beyond to provide an exceptional experience for you! We are definitely lucky to have Travis on our team, he is outstanding at what he does and we are glad you feel the same! The terrain we ride through is rough for sure but our Tomcars are tough and durable and can handle anything. Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a great review and for your kind words about Travis, we will be sure to pass along the message. Thanks for choosing Desert Wolf Tours, please visit us again soon!!

Connor and Derik were excellent guides! They were entertaining and helpful the entire trip. I wish we would’ve been able to travel slightly faster but it was still a great experience. The temp got as low as 54 on our trip and I was thankful I wore a fleece jacket and gloves. My feet were especially cold in tennis shoes. Our 11, 9 and 8 year old all had a great time but got cold even with fleece jackets and toboggans. I’d recommend layers if the temp is similar on your trip and you have kids. Would definitely take this tour again! Oh, and it had rained the few days prior so there was no dust! We were so thankful for that because it was extremely dusty in other past ATV desert experiences. We didn’t get muddy other than our shoes.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a wonderful 5 star review, we truly appreciate it. We strive to provide an exceptional experience for everyone no matter what the weather is and we are overjoyed to hear that Connor and Derik did exactly that! They are both exquisite guides and really love what they do and it shows! We are glad to hear that despite the cold and mud you enjoyed not having it be dusty because it definitely gets very dirty out there on a dry day! We hope to see you all again for another unforgettable day and thanks so much for choosing Desert Wolf Tours!

We had a exciting time on the Desert Wolf ATV tour. My daughter, grandson, and I wanted an adventure and “Brick” our tour guide made sure that we all had an exhilarating time. He gave good instruction on how to handle the ATV, safety equipment for my grandson, and made it possible for the couples in our group to have fun, and gave my daughter the confidence to drive and keep us safe and inline with the group! Anyone that we know that’s coming to Phoenix will hear our recommendation to go on the Desert Wolf tour and ask for “Brick!” Oh, and some of the information he gave us, as a teacher I appreciated learning. Great Time!!!!

My wife and I are avid RZR enthusiasts and decided to take a UTV desert tour while visiting our daughter and her husband in Phoenix. We brought them along for their first ATV/UTV adventure and they thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Derik & Travis were our guides and I don't believe that we could have even asked for anyone better. Derik was born and raised in Phoenix and his interest, knowledge, and passion for the area are obvious and noteworthy. Travis is an avid outdoorsman and adventurer who is able to relate his experiences to the tour with amazing clarity. Both are extremely well suited for their roles as desert guides.

The tour started with the entire group gathering to do some required paperwork and then attend a briefing. We all introduced ourselves and then Derik and Travis explained the tour in detail, the Tomcars that we would be driving, and all required safety (personal as well as Tomcar) measures for us to follow. No mishaps on this trip was the goal and we met it. We hopped into our Tomcars and headed out into the desert. Driving the Tomcar was fun. The Tomcars are UTVs that were designed and built for the Israeli Defense Force and are true military-grade vehicles. There are no extra accessories on these machines, they are simple, reliable machines that are built to keep functioning regardless. They seat 4 and are comfortable and easy to drive.

We stopped twice on the trip, once to learn about desert vegetation and once to learn about wildlife. The guides made the sessions interactive and very interesting. Water was provided, as well as DustGaitors to manage the dust. Wear clothing that you don't mind getting very dusty, because you will gather dust. The desert is rugged and beautiful, and we traveled quite a ways into it on our tour. Plan on spending a full 3 - 3.5 hours in your Tomcar riding the trails, there are no shortcuts here at all.

I've already decided that I'll be back to Desert Wolf Tours for another adventure on our next visit. With any luck we'll run into Derik and Travis again.

If you are even slightly considering this tour, do yourself a huge favor and go for it. I don't believe that you can be disappointed.

We strive hard to consistently deliver a great tour for our guests and it's always nice to hear we hit the mark. The tomcars are definitely built for the rugged terrain and are safe and easy to drive. We are truly glad to hear that you had a great time with Derik and Travis, they are absolutely professionals! We love having them on the team. Feedback, especially from such well-spoken customers like you, is not only invaluable to those researching businesses like ours, but is also important to us. We greatly appreciate you taking the time to share your comments and feedback with us. Thanks again and we can't wait to see you in the future for more adventure!

It was our first visit to Arizona and we booked a tour and our guide was Connor. He was knowledgeable and fun had a great personality. He took his time to explain everything we needed to know, and made it a really exciting trip. We weren’t expecting the weather to be as chilly as it was, but we made the best of it. I definitely would recommend this to anyone who’s visiting Arizona because it’s a great way to really see some beautiful sites and have a great time with family and friends.

This was such a fun experience. Derik was an amazing guide. On our 3 hour guided tour we stopped a few times along the way so that he could teach us about the local plants and wildlife. It was interesting to learn about all the different species living out there in the desert. Driving the Tomcar was so much fun. We went over all kinds of terrain and the scenery was breathtaking. I highly recommend this tour to everyone looking for an adventure or to people who want to see more of the Arizona landscape up close and personal.

What an amazing adventure. Our guides Brandi and Travis were personable, thorough, funny, and most importantly, we felt safe the entire time with our 8 and 5 year olds. The speed at which they repaired a broken tie rod on one of the vehicles was truly impressive. Barely missed a beat!

Ryan was the absolute perfect tour guide! He was extremely knowledgeable about the local plant and animal life, and he kept us laughing the entire time. He was a great leader; we felt safe and comfortable while also having an exhilarating ride. If you're unsure whether or not to book, you definitely should (and try to get Ryan!).
