The views and the educational and historical information that Shawn “romo” provided. He was super nice and super knowledgeable about the history of the desert and all the plant life. He really made the experience elevated. I would definitely request him.

Jon did an OUTSTANDING job to make sure everyone was safe, comfortable, and had the very best time possible. He was truly the reason our experience was so great! Our favorite memory was being able to take pictures at the top of the mountain with a sunset background. I would highly suggest this to others.

Best. Tour. Ever! Definitely a must if you're in the area. The views were amazing and the sunset was spectacular...but the highlight was our guide Steve. He was amazing... informative, friendly, kind and a great photographer too. He took several of our pics and kept us interested and engaged the entire tour. The ride was bumpy but fun and Steve made sure we were all safe and even offered blankets for when it got cooler after the sun set. I'd highly recommend this tour....such a good time!

I love our tour guide Scott, he is very friendly and tells stories about his adventures in the dessert. He teaches us the use of different cactuses. It does get cold if you do it in the winter time at sunset but he has blankets and snacks. Overall a Amazing experience and will do it again!

This is an experience not to be missed when visiting Scottsdale! Scott was super fun, knowledgeable and was the perfect guide for our group. We learned so much from him about the Sonoran desert, had many gorgeous photo ops, and we loved the extra touches of walking us around and showing us some of the plant life up close. Highly recommend!!
