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.
Places, travel and the guide was great, it really exceeded my expectations. I have widely recommended this tour.
This trip was a great way to see the desert, and to learn about the area. Our tour guide drove us along the apache trail, with several stops along the way and then we rode on a steamboat on the canyon river. We were picked up promptly at 800 am and returned to our hotel at 400 pm. The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and friendly and stayed with us all day! We definitely recommend this trip and would use this company again. Thank you.
This was a good tour, the bigget downfall is there is not enough time at the Gold Mining Town, Steamboat Cruise and Tortilla Flats add to the tour, making it a nice relaxing day.
It was a very nice tour, the driver was friendly and familiar with the area and the steamboat cruise was beautiful and relaxing. The views were spectacular. If I were to complain about anything it would be the stop at Goldfield, which was too short to do much and most of the shops were closed.
Great tour with plenty of things to do. The website didn't state the corect time to complete the tour. The tour takes approx. 8 hrs. Although, the cruise was the highlight of the tour we found the stop at the gold mine to be equally enjoyable.
An enjoyable day was had but was a little bit disappointed with the length of time spent at Tortilla Flat where there was not really much to see or do other than have lunch. For me personally, 2 hours was far too long. Aside from this I did overall have a great trip. The highlight was the steamboat cruise which truly was a visual delight. Compliments also goes to the Informative narrative by the driver.
