Definitely an enjoyable time! Amazing views, and you learn a lot about the plants and animals. One of my favorite parts of my trips to Arizona for sure. The ride can get pretty bumpy because you're on a jeep but it was still a lot of fun!

We had the greatest time on this adventure! Our tour guides were awesome and so knowledgeable about the local surroundings. The sunset views were beautiful.

If you go make sure you tell them to be early enough for sunset. We missed it by like 2-3 mins. A little frustrating since that’s why yo go. Besides that it was good.

Response from Jeremy F, Owner at Sunset Sonoran Desert Jeep Tour
Responded 5 days ago
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. Our Jeep tours are mobile tours focused on trekking through the scenic and rigorous trails of the Tonto National Forest. Since we conduct our sunset tours in open-air Jeeps, guests can choose whether they want to look at the scenery or at the sunset. Your group entered the Tonto National Forest at 4:17PM and left at 6:40PM. Sunset was at 5:42PM. It is therefore impossible that your group could have missed the sunset. I invite you to look at the 5-star review that @samantharae2 posted from the January 14, 2020 sunset tour, which includes a picture of her family in front of a spectacular sunset. Feel free to contact me directly at jeremy@thejeeptours.com so I can better understanding the reasoning behind this erroneous review.
