This was a ton of fun. Robert our guide was absolutely friendly and knowledgeable. Didn’t spend a lot of time on instruction which meant we had more time on the trails.

What a great time! This was my oldest son and daughter-in-law's second trip with these folks, a birthday present from us, and this time my youngest son and I were able to go, and we all had a blast! The day started with a quick overview and safety brief of the ATVs and a practice run on their safety track and live course. I was very impressed with their concern for everyone's safety and confidence levels before we left their grounds. The trails varied in roughness and elevations and the sights were great. We stopped half-way through for a sight-seeing opportunity and a water break and continued on for the remainder of the tour. Make no mistake, this is a real, off-road, desert trail so the going can get rough, you are going to get dirty, and your nose is going to collect enough dust to create a small island so be prepared. Also, if you haven't done this in a while, or ever, be prepared for the soreness that follows - you'll be working muscles that you wouldn't think about. Took me five days to recover but worth every bit of it. This is definitely a do again for our family. Thanks for a great time guys!!!

My wife and I did an ATV/UTV tour for the first time - we had an amazing time!

Brandon was an exceptional tour guide - he was knowledgeable about the wildlife, landmarks and history of the area. He even took our pictures during the tour and recommended some places we could visit on the rest of our trip!

The tour itself was quite exhilarating. The views of the mountains were spectacular, and the challenge of driving up and downhill on rocky slopes made for an exciting adventure. We would gladly do this again and recommend this highly for anyone visiting the Phoenix area!
