The Dolly Steamboat ride was my favorite part of the trip. If you’re looking for a great scenic experience, this is it. The tour guide was super knowledgeable with a great sense of humor. Would definitely recommend the tour. Can’t wait to use Detour Tours for our next visit to Arizona.

The boat tour of Canyon Lake was the best. It was a beautiful day and the scenery was excellent. We also enjoyed the historic mining town and Tortilla Flat. Our tour guide, Mark, did an excellent job of informing us about the area. Spotting several big-horn sheep was a plus.

Our tour guide, Mark, was excellent. The food was wonderful at Tortilla Flat and the Canyon River Dolly Steamboat was great!

Our guide Jason picked up us right on time. While driving to our first stop, Jason provided very detailed background information on the areas we were going to visit as well as Arizona in general. Very engaging and answered any questions we had. We were given ample time at each stop to explore and where appropriate eat. The Dolly cruise was fantastic…great scenery, saw big horn sheep on the ledges! The captain also pointed out bald eagles but I never saw them. Definitely worth the price (if only to avoid driving yourself. Most of the road is two lanes, one in each direction, with plenty of turns and some blind climbs and drops).

Easy booking process and we were contacted the day before to confirm our collection time and location.Robert, I may have his name wrong, sorry, - we met so many great people in our 2 week holiday arrived promptly in a very clean and tidy small bus and made us feel very at ease. We did go on to collect from a couple of other locations however they were pretty much on the way we were going so wasn’t an issue.Our guide provided some great narration on the drive as we travelled between the various stops and my husband and I appreciated his manner and sense of humour. He reminded us of Chevy Chase in the nicest of ways.We had a thoroughly enjoyable day and our Co-travellers were all amenable.The drive through Superstition Mountains was quite something - the scenery was amazing.Tortilla Flats was a lovely stop and the duration of the stop was timed to perfection - highly recommend an ice cream from the shop at the end of the street.Next stop is Canyon Lake where there is the opportunity to purchase lunch. Whilst I appreciate the suggestion to get your lunch to go so you can eat it on the Steamboat there was ample time to consume before we boarded the boat which was our preference as all the food was designed to be served hot. I wasn’t as keen on the boat ride as I had anticipated. It appeared to be almost/ or at capacity and whilst everyone appeared to have a seat I did feel there wasn’t the same opportunity to move around as what there would be with lower passenger numbers. It was a pleasant ride around the deceptively huge lake even if my attention had waned about half way round, for me personally the journey was about 20/25 minutes too long.The last stop is Goldfield which was my favourite stop of the day & I felt it a slight shame that we weren’t there longer as there were plenty of things to occupy your time - a train ride, a small zip line, shooting gallery, a visit down the mine to name a few as well as exploring all the buildings in the “town” though some were closed which was disappointing.Overall an enjoyable day, well executed and fairly priced.

Tracy was the most wonderful guide, the places came alive with stories and anecdotes throughout the trip. The two couples who shared this experience were both from different parts of this country but we all got along and became a very friendly group. This made the whole day so much more enjoyable. The tour itself I would rate as one of the best I have done in this area over the 5 years I have been visiting Arizona. The guides through the various stops were extremely knowledgeable and all had “stories”. This tour had everything, information, history, culture, probably the best guide I have had the pleasure of meeting, fantastic food, even the opportunity to partake of some alcoholic beverages, wonderful scenery and a boat trip on Canyon lake to remember.

Robert was a treasure trove of knowledge. Very intelligent friendly driver guide. Well planned tour. Fully booked 12 person bus. Enjoyed the canyon riverboat ride. Very relaxing, scenic tour. The last leg was a recreated/ original mining town. All the stores were either coffee, ice cream, or souvenir shops. The museum, ghost tour, and railroad are additional $$$.
