What You Can Expect

Arizona Desert Tour by UTV

Beautiful Bradshaw Mountains!

This guided tour begins about 45 minutes north of Phoenix in the lower desert near the Agua Fria River Valley. This area, just below the Bradshaw Mountains, is perfect for off-roading. Admire gorgeous views of the colorful Arizona desert sky as you explore creek crossings and places for wash riding, as well as ghost towns and abandoned gold mines.

UTVs resemble golf carts and are perfect for rugged, off-roading adventures. They drive like cars and have safety cages surrounding all passengers for added security, making them ideal for families. All vehicles are fully automatic and have both 2- and 4-wheel drive.

You’ll be accompanied by a certified guide with a vast knowledge of the terrain, plant life, wildlife, history and climate of the area. Hear stories about the Native Americans who once farmed, hunted, survived and evolved in this unforgiving desert. See ancient Native American ruins and pass by several working and abandoned gold mines on the way up to Tip Top, an Arizona ghost town with awesome views of the surrounding valley.

The tour was enjoyable. My wife and I both loved the scenery and excitement of the trip. Matthew, our guide was knowledgeable about the history and features of the area we rode in. He kept an eye on us because he rode a fourwheeler while we were on a 2 seater ATV and couldn't travel as fast over the rough ground. Good trip.
