When visiting Phoenix, experience the Sonoran Desert on a night tour by Hummer, the tough four-wheel drive vehicle that lets you go further into the desert on rougher terrain than most other vehicles. Your expert guide leads this thrilling tour through the otherworldly scenery of the nighttime desert and shares informative commentary about the plant and animal life, history and legends of the region throughout your journey. Look for the creatures of the night as they stir from their rest, and enjoy the desert in the cool of the evening.
4-hour night tour of the Sonoran Desert by Hummer 4WD vehicle, from Phoenix
Take on rough terrain on a Hummer tour that goes deep into the Sonoran Desert
See desert creatures that only come out at night
Learn from your knowledgeable guide about the region's animals, plants and history
After pickup from select Phoenix-area hotels (if option selected) or meeting at the designated spot, your knowledgeable guide takes you out in the Hummer to begin your night tour in the Sonoran Desert. If you're lucky, conditions will allow you to see an amazing sunset over the desert landscape as you zoom along.
After sundown, the desert takes on a different atmosphere. The mighty saguaro cactus, known as the 'Sentinel of the Desert,' stands tall as nocturnal creatures stir from their shelter after the desert heat subsides. Rugged and majestic mountains transform into huge, sleeping giants at night.
Go beyond the capacity of a regular car as you roar through the desert in your Hummer, 4-wheeling over sand, dirt and hills with stops along the way to search for critters such as rattlesnakes, coyotes and tarantulas. The tough Hummer allows you to travel deeper into the desert than other tours, while your expert guide shares lots of fascinating stories about the wildlife, ecology and history of this part of the American Southwest.
At the end of approximately four hours, your guide returns you to your starting point where your tour ends.
Had a great time..6 of us ranging from 9 to 70 in age. ALL of us really enjoyed the tour. Saw the most beautiful sunset. Tour guide was considerate of 1 from our party who had height fears..took the steep hills with consideration engaged him in desert animal talks. Will go again when visiting the area
The tour was nice and the driver was very informative. I was not happy about not being picked up at the Hotel we selected. The Company Desert Dog did not want to travel to that location so we had to drive to Fountain Hills to there location. The Company would not make two round trips from Fountain Hills to Goodyear.
What an experience to be riding on a H2 over the desert terrain. Our guide/driver Tim was very informative. Best of all, we came across to this herd of wild horses toward the end of our tour by the lake. It was an unforgetable experience overall!
John was a great guide and we enjoyed the ride into the Sonoran Desert to Tonto National Park. The beauty of the cacti, mustangs and hawks will remain with us. John was fun to listen to and his love of AZ shone through.
Kevin was a fun and knowledgeable guide. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour thanks to Kevin and the beautiful environment. He brought very interesting facts to our tour and answered all of our questions. Would definitely recommend this excursion.
