We had a great time touring Saguaro National Park on road bikes with Otto! Otto was fun and knowledgeable, and the park was super scenic. Would definitely highly recommend to others!

This was our first experience hiking in Tucson and really had no idea what to expect so thought it best to have someone with experience along for the adventure. Ian met us at 9am for a hike to Bridal Falls. I won't go on and on about the views because that is obvious. The real highlight was Ian. Taking a hike with someone you have never met could be awkward....no awkwardness at all with Ian. He was friendly, interesting, informative and funny. We made good time to our destination and Ian was kind enough to add to our trek, taking an alternative route back to the trailhead. That led to us stumbling (almost literally) onto a Gila Monster...a very rare sight according to Ian. We could not have asked for a better last day in Tucson! Thanks Ian for a fantastic day!

Otto led my wife, teenage daughters, and me on a hike up to Bridal Veil Falls. The panoramic views of Tucson/the valley and the Catalinas were spectacular, and the falls were a gem. Otto was warm & friendly, communicative in advance on logistics, prepared with provisions, and informative/knowledgeable about the desert (flora, fauna & history) and Tucson. It's exactly what I had hoped it would be and we're already looking forward to lining something up with AO the next time we're in town.

We had a day to spend in the area and were recommended by the local concierge. Otto and Julia planned an incredible trip through Bear Canyon to 7 Falls. While it was a little longer than originally planning on, Otto convinced us it was worth the trek. He was so right! We got to cross the river multiple times, rock hopping or wading through shin deep water. It was great to see the guides so excited about our trip as the water was higher then they traditionally get to see. They guided us through the easy parts and supported us through the more difficult crossings. They were conscientious of our abilities and made sure we were safe the entire trip. By the time we made it to the falls, we were so overwhelmed we just stood there in awe. Julia told us interesting information about the flora and the fauna while Otto discussed the native American history of the area. Definitely will look these guys up again when we return.

Otto is a really great guide. He picked the perfect trail for my experience level and interest. He was also knowledgeable about the local plant life, wild life, and area. I could not have asked for a better day and ride! I highly recommend!!!
