Matt was our tour guide and he was outstanding. He was very flexible, accommodating and patient. He made sure we were comfortable and going at our own pace, while also giving us some history and background about the area. Make sure to be well rested and hydrated when booking this tour. You also do not need a lot of experience mountain biking to be able to enjoy this experience.

Thank you so much for this review. Matt is one of our best guides and boy we have had a crazy year of weather here. The night you did your tour is was still insane hot --which is not typical this time of year. I heard you all did Camelback mountain the morning of this tour and congrats to you on that accomplishment. Hydration is certainly key any time of year here for us so thank you for reminding readers of that aspect. We hope you will come back and ride with us again. Thank you for being our guest. Very sincerely, Laurel :)

Thank you Laurel and team for a beautiful early morning hike and breakfast for our group at the Phoenix Mtn Preserve! The Wild Bunch team is very Covid conscientious, knowledgeable of the area, and a lot of fun! Would definitely book a tour with them again. Be sure to book the Hummer for a fun open air ride to and from your tour!!

A bit of background, I recently had foot surgery and am still recovering, but wanted to do a hike with my daughter on our visit to Arizona. We had the great joy of hiking with Jason on a 2.5-ish hour hike through the Sonoran Desert. Not only was he understanding of my slow pace and incredibly accommodating, he is also an incredibly intelligent young man. As people from the east coast, my daughter and I really didn’t know much about the local landscapes, so we loved learning throughout our hike. Furthermore, the respect Jason has for the area shown through our time together, you can tell he loves what he does. Jason was also very respectful of the ongoing pandemic and ensured that he wore his face mask throughout our hike, provided us with hand sanitizer, and maintained the appropriate distance. We really cannot say enough wonderful things about him and the experience he gave us. We can’t wait to come back to Arizona and book with Wild Bunch again!
