My husband and I enjoyed the tour with Cactus Matt of Phoenix and Scottsdale. He was energetic, friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. As far as the tour it was fine but however there was not enough time in Old Scottsdale to eat and shop. We only had time to eat so we chose to stay and get back to our Hotel ourselves. Also it would've been nice for us to have seen more of downtown Phoenix and your major league sport complexes for example.

The tour guide was exceptional. Knowledgeable and courteous. The tour was OK. We spent more time at the capitol than other places. I would had like to visit Uptown but instead we went to old city Scottsdale and spent the entire time waiting for our lunch in a busy burger place. We did not had time to walk around the art places or shops because the tour ended there.

The driver & host was wonderful & so well informed. However, unless you were lucky enough to have a front seat because of the seats being too high at the heads the only view possible was the side view which is not very entertaining. I would take it again & make sure I got a front seat.

The time was wasted picking up people from too many hotels. An hour and a half was wasted picking up other people. We did see the capital and old town. Cost was way too much for what we saw. Old town was disappointing.
