What You Can Expect
During your tour along the Apache Trail, you will be treated to a steamboat ride on Canyon Lake by the famous Dolly Steamboat. As part of the 6-mile narrated nature cruise, keep your eye out for Big Horn Sheep, Bald Eagles and a host of other desert animals as well as unforgettable views of 1300-foot volcanic cliff walls of Canyon Lake.
Following your steamboat ride, visit Tortilla Flat and just beyond that Fish Creek Hill in the Superstition Wilderness. Tortilla Flat has become a fixture of the Apache Trail since its inception in 1904. Nothing could destroy this stage stop which holds onto its rich tradition through its architecture and unique decorating sense. At Fish Creek Hill overlook, enjoy views of the Sonoran Desert and Superstition Wilderness from your amazing vantage point. The Superstition Mountains are truly a breathtaking sight to behold. This rugged landscape in the Sonoran Desert has been the jewel that some men were looking for with the most famous involving the Lost Dutchman Mine. Rumored to have found the largest gold vein in the west, German immigrant Jacob Waltz trusted his newly found gold deposit to no one and the secret of its location was buried with him. If you have the “golden eye” maybe you can spot it while on tour!
awesome trip. We took our 9 year grandson and we were amazed how much he enjoyed it. Thanks to Jason M. our tour guide, for taking the time to answer his questions and for making sure to include him in conversations. We originally planned on driving ourselves but after seeing the road, we were glad to leave the driving to the tour operator. The excursion on the Dolly paddle boat up the canyon was a truly a magical experience dinosaur fossils, and petrified logs, oh my! Kids from about 8 to 12 or so are perfect companions on this tour.
Tour guide was very knowledgeable and informative. Well worth doing. We had a great day.

Surpassed expectations and was thoroughly enjoyed by all members of our party. Memo was knowledgeable and informative. The journey to Fish Creek was amazing, just a shame there were not more opportunities to take in the views
The Apache Trail trip is a must. The scenery along Salt River Canyon is awesome. A magic day.
The Apache Trail was amazing. The tour guide
was awesome explaining everything to us. It was such a beautiful day, that next time we travel we are using Viator. i spoke to Mike Simmons, and he was so kind as to fax the voucher at the hotel we were staying in, since we had no way to print the voucher. Everyone at Viator was great and very helpful. Love them.
We took the Apache Trail tour in mid -Sept 2014 the day after a heavy rain. The desert was lovely. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and was able to answer our question. We especially enjoy the Ferry ride on Canyon Lake.
