Highly recommend this tour! The instructor was so knowledgeable about absolutely everything, from the history of the area to the native plants and animals. Really enjoyed the ghost town and the boat tour, however they could have skipped the first stop (movie set) in my opinion.

The tour was great. The guide gave us all kind of interesting information and answered our questions.
The actual cruise was nice but having binoculars would have made it great.
The stop at Tortilla Flat where we had lunch was a high point.
Highly recommended tour.

our guide Wayne was on time, courteous, very knowledgeable and took very good care of the group.
For history buffs, lots of information to digest. Just a suggestion to eat a hearty breakfast first as lunch will be after 1:30PM.

This tour was great and lots of fun. We went with Arizona Tour and Travel and our guide was Wayne who was great. He allowed us some flexibility and we were able to get some shopping done and had our lunch in Tortilla Flat. Also, the steamboat cruise was great. Canyon Lake is beautiful, and we saw big horn sheep and a bald eagle.

This tour was excellent. They picked us up right at the lobby of the hotel and the tour guide was amazing. Not only did he talk about Apache trail but he also told of the history of Phoenix. Additionally, the boat ride was wonderful and relaxing. Saw some Bald Eagles during the trip.. Great Time

WOW! This 8 hour tour was SO MUCH BETTER than expected! Wayne Parker was our CTFG Certified FABULOUS Tour Guide :-. His knowledge, presentations, friendliness and genuine class easily lifted our tour over the top of every mountain we saw. Folks, the scenery - almost from second to second - is spellbinding. From the incredible desert trees, cactus and scrub to the hills, vistas and mountains to the old western towns, rivers and lakes, there's hardly a moment to regroup in between each new adventure! This is a 100 MUST. WOW!

OK First I have to apologize. My 1st review a couple of days ago was lost!?
So let me begin again that our tour guide Wayne Parker was probably the best guide we have ever had traveling throughout the the country. We were picked up at our designated hotel promptly and from the that moment we were given amazing information thru the areas of Phoenix and the surrounding mountains side. From the celebrity homes on the mountains to the plants n trees surrounding the various neighborhoods Wayne was informative and very entertaining! But when we got unto the Superstition Mountain /Apache Trail his narrative of all that was around us came to life. We almost felt like it was in the 1800s, traveling on a covered wagon to our destination on a very winding road!! to Canyon Lake, except we were in an A/C van.lol Upon arriving at the lake we boarded the Dolly Stearn Wheeler for a 90 minute cruise that was spectacular viewing cliffs, eagles, and other wildlife that hoestly pictures could not capture the true beauty of this hidden lake! After the cruise Wayne took us to 2 old west mining towns and as a group WE decided to have lunch at Tortilla Flats.
There we were able to stroll thru this facinating town and my wife even panned for gold. On our way back we ran into a big traffic jam. Undeterred, Wayne took the first exit off the the expressway and took the side streets to keep us moving, giving us additional information on the neighborhoods we were traveling thru. Great job Wayne, and again Donna n I Thank You!

Our tour group was small just 5 of us. Wayne is an amazing tour guide. He even made a stop not on the agenda to accommodate one of our group. Would definitely book another Wayne led tour. Five stars plus.

Chris was a great guide. It was also a great group. We had a really enjoyable day. Got to see some real wildlife - bald eagles, big horn sheep and fish in Canyon Lake. It was a beautiful day all the way around.

It was informative and just hands down awesome. Our Guide, Chris was amazing. I would recommend Ma and Pops tours to anyone. My youngest just took to Chris like glue. We all felt comfortable with him and he made the trip worth it 10X's over

A really different trip along the Apache trail then on to Tortilla Flat followed by a 90 minute steamboat cruise then to Goldfield Ghost Town and finally a visit down the mine. I've done this trip before on a previous visit, every time I learn more about the local area, and Arizona too, due to the knowledgable tour guides. Many thanks Brad.

The Apache Trail was a scary ride if you don't like heights. The road had very few guard rails but the view was well worth the trip. Canyon Lake had some spectacular views., the paddle boat was pleasant and relaxing. This was a great trip to get the feel of the land during the mining era. The tour guide was great at explaining history of the area. The tour guides on the Viator Tours I booked were excellent.

Wonderful tour going up the Apache Trail where mule teams once hauled the men and materials that made Roosevelt Lake. This amazing story comes to life on this tour. Plus seeing the desert is marvelous, and our tour guide was most informative about everything in Phoenix. The cruise was magical; we floated past canyon walls spotting eagles and big horn desert sheep. Loved the old mining town of Goldfield where we had just enough time to tour the gold mine on our own; it was amazing. The hard life of the miners boggles the mind. The guide there was also most entertaining and informative, but u need to ask if there's enough time to squeeze in this extra. I recommend you do it if possible. The lunch stop at Tortilla Flat was fine but we used the time there to see he tiny museum there about Roosevelt Lake.

This was a fabulous tour. Not too long (8:30 - 3pm) but full of information. Our guide new the area and loved it. He was full of information and it was interesting and appropriate for our area.

This was a lovely tour that showed us many forms of cactus and desert plants and the lake cruise was also very nice. The tour guide was very knowledgeable about the history of Arizona and also the varieties of desert plants. We learned many things we didin't know before and we have visited Arizona many times. He was also considerate enough to bring bottled water for each of us. I definitely recommend this tour. Ruth J., Ft Worth

It was a wonderfully enjoyable day. A bit long (but we were the first pick up and the last drop off). The guide was very knowledgeable and the steamboat guide was equally as entertaining and informative. Definitely an area of the valley that we would like to revisit at our leisure

Truly awe inspiring experience in the canyon looking up and on the road looking down! Decided that if we moved to Arizona, it would be to the foot of the Superstition Mountains! Loved the food in Tortilla Flat.
