Please contact Trip Advisor. Your review has nothing to do with Apache Trail Tours. We do not have a guide named Mike Rodriguez and we haven't run one of our 8 hour tours for a large group in recent months. Thank you for your help straightening this out. More

One of the things we did was take a Jeep Tour with "Apache Trails Tours" of the local desert. Wow did we have fun. the desert was beautiful... More

A little pricey if on a budget but a load of fun. "Digger" our open jeep driver and narrator was a lot of fun. We took the 2 hour trip (numerous lengths available at 9:30 AM on a Sunday (May 15th) and the weather was perfect. Digger knew his stuff and has lived around this area since the mid-1960's. Great...

So glad you felt your tour time with us was well worth the price. Our prices are very competitive - lower than most - especially considering we are at the doorway to the desert and the Apache Trail - no driving through city streets to get to the wilderness. And we offer a discount for our repeat customers. Hope you... More

Glenn is a great tour guide and very knowledgeable. He took the time to explain to us all of the history of the Superstition Mountains and the Lost Dutchman mine legacy. He is also a prospector, so he really knows what he is talking about when it comes to mining for gold. His knowledge of the desert plant life was... More

We absolutely loved our 2 hr gold panning tour today!!! My 11 yr old twin boys thought it was the coolest thing to find real gold. Our tour guide, dusty bottoms, was kind and highly knowledgeable about the area, the gold rush era and superstition mountain. At points, the boys were mesmerized by his stories.
