I went on my own as my husband was at a work conference. The tour guide Manny Rodriguez - if I remember correctly was so knowledgeable and friendly. He had lots of stories to tell us about Phoenix and the surrounding area - historical as well as current and fun. He gave us lots of information without being overbearing. I didn't think I would remember as much as I did considering how much he told us. As we drove around, we had some photo opportunities Hole in the Rock and he pointed out the architecture - he had lots to say about Frank Lloyd Wright as well as the University of Phoenix. The flora was amazing - I didn't expect such a variety of greenery - I learned so much. He also told us about some of the wildlife in the area javelinas, coyotes, snakes, scorpions. We toured Camelback Mountain, Phoenix, Paradise Valley, and had a short stop in Scottsdale. The only confusion was at pickup when I didn't realize that the van waiting was the one for the tour. I was told it was Mom and Pop Tours, so I was looking for a van that said Mom and Pop. So I could have gotten on earlier had I known. Overall a great tour and am so glad that I booked it.

We had scheduled a group tour but there were no other travelers and we were afraid that it would be cancelled. However the company was extremely accommodating and actually provided us the tour with just the two of us, therefore being a private tour. Our tour guide, Corey, was amazing in all ways. She arrived with a smile on her face and took us off to a most wonderful day! We covered everything that Phoenix has to offer and more! Cory's vast amount of knowledge about everything is amazing! She added so many insights to the area and took us to the main highlights and the off the beaten track fun spots! We asked her a million questions and she patiently answered every one and then some. The tour was amazing in that it covered he entire city and its surroundings. We learned so much, and had so many laughs and great conversations about everything Southwest. We 100 recommend this tour and Corey too!

We had an excellent tour guide and enjoyed our excursion very much. Our guide a woman whose name I can't recall unfortunately covered a lot of territory and provided a wide range of interesting information. It was convenient being picked up at our hotel from there we saw some highlights of downtown Phoenix including the baseball stadium and a stop at the historic state capitol building where you could walk around and take photos. We drove up past the museum district to the posh Biltmore Estate area and up to the Camelback mountain and castle with a beautiful scenic view. We drove though a couple large parks and through Paradise Valley spectacular homes all the while our guide provided interesting narration and answered questions. The guide wore a headset microphone and I was sitting in the second row and could hear fine however, my mom who is hard of hearing was sitting further back and said it was hard to hear at times. The tour culminated in Scottsdale where we had 40 minutes on our own to stretch our legs, eat ice cream or snacks, and shop in the heart of old town Scottsdale. The guide then drove us back in heavy rush hour traffic to our respective hotels. I gave her a nice tip because she did such a good job and was the reason the tour was so worthwhile.

I took this tour in August 2013 and had a FABULOUS time! Our tour guide, Princely was amazing. When going on this tour, request tour guide - PRINCELY. He knows everything about Phoenix. Princely took us to many famous local attractions and pointed out great restaurants. He gave us plenty of time to walk around the shops, see a local museum and walk around Scottsdale. He also drove us up to South Mountain for a spectacular view of Phoenix. From local politics....to agriculture....and food Princely knows everything about Arizona. He works hard and provides TREMENDOUS customer service.
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND PRINCELY'S TOUR FOR TOURISTS OF ALL AGES AND......CORPORATIONS THAT ARE VISITING ARIZONA. You will learn everything there is to know about Arizona.

Our driver and tour guide, Will, was extremely knowledgeable. Our group turned out to be very small, so it was very personable. It is a great tour to get a highlight of the area and would highly recommend taking the tour early in your visit so you can go back to restaurants and attractions highlighted. There were so many recommended and interesting places!

The trip gave us a good introduction to Phoenix and the area. The driver was very friendly and had a great deal of knowledge about the area, both the city and the desert. Not to be missed.

We enjoyed the sightseeing tour in Phoenix and Scottsdale. We were in a small bus and everyone interacted, which was very nice. Our driver was informative and funny. He is a good ambassador for your company. Thank you.

We enjoyed our Phoenix tour as it gave a good overview of the city. Our favourite spot was Old Scotsdale with its amazing stores and old west flavour. Great guide, great tour!

Our driver/tour guide was prompt to pick us up at our resort and he was very funny and knowledgeable during the tour, always answering my (many) questions :) The only reason I give this 4 stars and not 5 is simply because there isn't that much to see in Arizona, however, we did see all there is to see and I'm pleased my boyfriend and I decided to take this tour. I would recommend it to first timers in this area.
Also, I loved the 2 shops our tour guide suggested we check out when he dropped us off at Old Town Scottsdale for some shopping. Thank you

the trip was great. We enjoyed the guide, Michael and he made the whole experience pleasurable. We got something that we hadn't expected, a tour of South Mountain. We didn't get what we had expected, a tour of the Goldwater house and the Wriglle mansion. But we were satisfied.

We absolutely loved Michael and his tour, but the itinerary was not the same as advertised. We enjoyed it just as much, and he took us out of the way to see some of the things that were on the original itinerary, but I think you should get things straight so the tour matches what is advertised online.

Very interesting tour. The guide was polite and knowledgeable. The office staff was courteous and helpful. All we had to do was be in our hotel lobby at the designated time. The free bottled water and candy was a nice touch, too.

I enjoyed the tour. The tour guide was funny and knowledgeable. At the end of the tour, I thought, 'Wow! Phoenix is a beautiful city'. I wish that I had more opportunities to take pictures, because I had only one picture to show for the tour.

The guide was 1/2 hour late for pick-up and acted hurried the entire day. The tour was advertised as half-day but was actually only about 2and a half hours. I was not impressed and would not recommend this tour.

The tour was rather boring. We were going to be dropped off in Scottsdale to shop, which wasn't on the original itinerary. The shops weren't open yet so we just drove around for awhile and then dropped off. They weren't open yet and had to wait for a while longer. A waste of time. The rest of the trip was pretty bland. Our driver didn't have much to say and didn't seem very knowledgeable about the area although he said he lived there a long time. There was actually very little time spent on downtown Phoenix and the buildings there. We just rushed through that part and was very disappointed.

Very disappointed with this tour but mainly because our guide was more interested in pointing out places to eat than providing us with any information about Phoenix or what we were seeing. We didn't go to some of the places listed on our itinerary. The van's windows were low which made it difficult to see out of the windows, particularly on the other side. The guide didn't use a microphone so we had to regularly ask him to speak up.

It was just ok. We only stopped once for an hour and got to look at some shops. There was just two other people on the tour.
