Hop on your own ATV on this off-roading adventure in the Sonoran Desert. After a safety briefing and training, gear up and ride across rugged, rocky trails in the scenic Bradshaw Mountains, as well as cross the Agua Fria River. Be on the lookout for coyotes, bobcats, and more, and learn about the region's flora and fauna and Native American history from your guide.

This was easily my favorite thing I've seen in the city of Phoenix. The staff is super friendly and knowledgeable about the history of the castle. It's an absolutely beautiful and unique structure of art. The story behind it is beautiful and you can tell how much love was put into the place.

While the story of the home is amazing, the poor decreased owner would roll over in her grave if she couldd see how poorly the grounds are kept up.. The debris at the entry gate was enough to make us leave. Maybe it is the city's responsibility but when charging $10. Cash someone could have spent time to clean it up.

The entire experience is very eclectic. I have never seen a hand built castle. The guides were very pleasant and knowledgeable. The decor was extremely interesting and you have to be willing to spend time to appreciate the entire experience and look at each item and picture. I asked questions that the guide did not cover in her telling of the story and she knew the answers to those offbeat questions as well. We took a horse drawn carriage ride to this location, toured the castle, and rode the carriage back. Definitely worth the $10 entry price.

The castle itself is pretty cool, the basic construction and design elements very unique. The guides were very friendly and well informed. However, the inside was so filthy and musty and crowded with bad garage-sale type of doo dads and lace, it was hard to enjoy it. I understand it's in a dusty desert environment, but if they got rid of the pillows and fabric and other soft materials that smelled of must, washed the floors and wood, and let the basic design of the place speak for itself, it would be a much more pleasant experience.

I want to say the experience was unique and Ramon was great. But their unwillingness to hold up their own covid rules made me drop it to 1 star. The entrance sign states in big letters that masks are required. Unfortunately they don’t enforce it. A group of us were guided through small rooms. Multiple people where in the group without masks. It felt especially dangerous given how small some of these rooms were. The guides allowed it and did nothing to enforce the rules. Not an eye was bat. Risking others lives for $10 is not cool.
