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!

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.

A complete rip off and false advertising.

First let me say the driver's demeanor and the driver's knowledge was excellent! A great guy! But I paid for an extreme tour in a hummer! Extreme? Extreme what? I was expecting to be blasting through the desert mountains in a hummer having a wild ride. What did I get? A hummer going 5-10 mph for 3.5 hours explaining everything about every cactus. Yes, 5-10 mph! Come on! I believe it was false advertising by the company itself not the driver. Here is what the ad said on viator or trip advisor:

For adrenaline junkies: If you want an even more exciting adventure, where youll navigate through more rugged terrain, upgrade to the extreme tour.

Yeah, at 5 mph! A complete rip off. I have never had a bad tour before in my life and I will tell everyone about viator and tripadvisor's bad advertising.

Doing what: Half-Day Hummer Adventure through Tonto National Forest
