I broke 3 nails, was scared to death from the view of the heights and I will still rate this as a 5 star experience.

Our UTV adventure started on a rainy day which made the weather fantastic. It was 88 degrees and very muddy. Our tour guides Tim and Brian did an excellent job corralling all of us thrill seekers. We climbed high hills and drove through muddy pools. My party had an great time and we will definitely come back when we visit Phoenix.

Wow! What an Experience
, Jul 2021
This was one of the most enjoyable tours I have ever taken. The tour guide was very attentive. The tour had an edge of excitement and risk to it, yet safe with the guide. The portable restrooms were clean with water to wash your hands. The value of what you got for the money was excellent.

This was great! Dakota was a wonderful guide and was also able to recommend a driver to bring us back to the city. Also leave time to stop at the Rock Springs Cafe for breakfast or a slice of pie with Candace :)
UTV is the way to go

Had an amazing time on the UTV guided tour with Tim. It was a fantastic excursion with amazing views. It was a two hour guided tour through the Sonora desert with two stops along the way. One stop was a brief overview of the area, tribes, desert and more. Second stop was for the restroom and photo ops.
A trip to the desert

It was a very fun time. The views from inside the desert are awesome. We ended up going unguided and had a lot of fun exploring and cruising around. Would definitely recommend
Great tour

We had a great time. Tim was a great guide. He helped us maneuver through the trails in the mountains. They provided lots of water during the tour. Pretty seamless process.
Scary and fun

Brought my niece here for her graduation trip. Had her drive. She said it was both scary and fun at the same time. Brandi did a great job as our guide. Would recommend this to everyone.
