We were on the Sonoran Desert guided ATV Adventure tour with a group of good friends who play football together and a handful of parents to celebrate one of the boy's 17th birthdays. From start to finish It was an amazing experience that ended with a bit of a twist. The guides Chad and Tom were knowledgeable, engaging, and focused on providing a fun and safe experience for the group. Safety is clearly important to the Stellar Adventures team, and they took the time to explain how to operate the 4-wheelers and even more time talking about the importance of safety and the potential risks on the trail. I have worked in the construction industry for over 23 years and personally believe that sending everyone home safe is the most important thing we do every day. It was clear that the Stellar Adventures team has a similar mindset and they provided additional guidance and safety briefings throughout the tour.
Sometimes there are things that are out of your control......such as going around a corner too fast and launching yourself into a Cholla cactus at 30+ MPH like my son did. Aside from the thousands of cactus barbs stuck in every part of his body, he was ok. Everyone jumped in to help out, removing the cactus from his hands, face, rear, leg, ankle and just about every other part of his body other than his head and eyes which were protected by the helmet and goggles. There was an opportunity for them to say "I told you so", but that was not the approach. What we got was help, care, and true compassion. My son is doing fine, and we are lucky to walk away with good life lesson and a memory that none of us will ever forget.
My highest recommendation for Stellar Adventures.
