    This was an absolutely beautiful hike. Our guide, Liz, was terrific - personable, knowledgeable, and just a delight. We did this our last evening in Phoenix and it was the perfect thing to cap off the trip - a gorgeous sunset with stunning views.

    My husband and I and our two teenagers loved the UTV sand buggy tour!! Ryan was a great tour guide and made sure none of us got lost while we followed him through awesome trails and saw amazing scenery in the desert! My kids loved it and the dune buggies go amazingly well over sand, little rocks and huge rocks. So much fun!! Would definitely do it again the next time we are in Scottsdale!

    This was an amazing way to conquer Camelback the first time. It was great knowing the ins and outs, the best places to step, and the best safe photo ops. I d it don’t know if I’d make it with a hamstring injury but I did it!!! Matt was very knowledgeable and a great tour guide.

    Mike was the best tour guide we could’ve had! We took an open jeep tour through the Sonoran desert through Tonto National Forest, learning about the amazing biodiversity and history of one of America’s largest national parks. If I could give this tour a 11/10 I would, and I would definitely suggest to both first time visitors and residents alike!

    Wish I could give his a ten! It was absolutely worth the long day - for me it started at 5am, for others in the group it was 4am. I got back around 7:30pm but appreciated the hotel pick-up and drop off. As for the experience itself, it was AMAZING. The views are stunning and a view you may never get to see again. Our tour guide, Derek, provided great info and had a pretty awesome playlist for those times where the views spoke for themselves.

    Me and my friend wanted to do a day trip without it taking a whole day . A 5 hour excursion was perfect and we got to see many different areas . Our tour guide Greg was great . He was very informative and we learned a lot . He was also a lot of fun and the car games were perfect ! Would highly recommend this tour .

    Thoroughly enjoyed my hike. I guess we lucked out in that it was a breezy day so the hike was pleasantly "cool". Henry is obviously passionate about what he does. Good sense of humor too! Learnt quite a bit about cacti too -- more than just succulent prickly stuff! Healthy and educational 2 hours! Note -- drink lots of water!

    Matt was an amazing tour guide for our tour through the Sonora desert. We had 11 kids and nine adults ranging from ages 5 to 55 and none of us wanted to tour to end. He was knowledgeable, well prepared, communicative prior to the hike and super polite and fun. The kids had a blast and they were asking for more even after two hours of hiking. We were in disbelief but yet because Matt was so awesome we believed it. Made our Arizona trip memorable.

    Jose was such a great guide! My wife and I had an amazing time on our canyoneering trip. Jose was friendly, courteous and thoughtful. Anyone who wants an adventure in the Phoenix area should contact him!

    What an awesome experience! Our family, 3 teenagers and 3 adults, had a great time! Our guide, Tom, gave great instructions and information on how to prepare for each leg of the ride. He was patient with us and always made sure we were safe. We would definitely do this activity again!

    What an incredible experience. Keenan was fantastic from start to end. He made it super easy to enjoy the beauty and majesty of the Grand Canyon. Showing us great places for a swim, taking photos, making incredible food. It was a special place and Keenan was great and caring for and bring together a group to make our experience super special. I’ll be back! Thanks Keenan.

    Book with these guys. The hiking gear was in great condition. Everything was made super easy! They were first class guides! Especially Keenan!

    This was an awesome experience with Brian, a great guide, and his assistants. I had never done repelling or swimming in Canyon Rivers but I felt totally safe with his expertise. It was a challenging course and exhausting, but really a whole lot of fun. Beautiful scenery to top it off. I highly recommend going with him on this trip.
