“Incredible Outdoor Adventure Run by True Professionals.”

5 of 5 starsReviewed May 18, 2015 by Lloyd M; White Plains, NY
Desert Wolf Tours is a truly unique and fun experience. I booked a half day private tour with 7 of my friends (a bunch of guys from the East Coast who were in Arizona celebrating our 40th birthdays). Our tour included a Tomcar tour through the desert with a stop in the middle at a firing range to do some shooting.
A few highlights:
1)The Tomcars are amazing. This is a true off road desert tour. The Tomcars handle the rough terrain beautifully and make for a fun trip that anyone can enjoy.
2) The scenery is gorgeous. Driving through the unique and diverse Arizona desert surrounded by mountains is nothing short of amazing.
3) Our tour guide, Hunter, was a true professional and an enjoyable person to spend the day with. Hunter, who owns the business along with his father, is a great guy, extremely knowledgeable and an incredible tour guide.
4) Probably most important – this business is run by people who care and do a top notch job. You get exactly the experience you signed up for and you’ll feel confident and safe due to the amazing job these guys do. I was seriously impressed with their operation.

Desert Wolf Helps You Beat The Scottsdale Heat!

Desert Wolf Tours Helps You Beat the Scottsdale Heat.Do you think it’s just TOO HOT to take one of our awesome desert off-road tours?  Well, think again.  Each of our vehicles is equipped with it’s own personal mister.  And, believe me, they really work in our “dry heat”.  When you start to get hot, simply press the trigger and give yourself a light mist and you’ll instantly be 20 to 30 degrees cooler!

In addition, here are some other ways we help you beat the heat of Scottsdale and Phoenix.  All of our Tomcars have covered tops so you’ll be shaded during your journey.  Plus, we give you cotton souvenir bandanas to soak in ice water and tie around your neck.  They will keep you nice and cool.  Last but not least, you’ll be 2,000 and 2,600 ft elevation where temperatures average 2 to 4 degrees cooler than Scottsdale and Phoenix.  That doesn’t sound like a lot, but it makes a big different.

So, we help you “Beat the Heat” by:

Providing you with personal misters that instantly make you feel 20 to 30 degrees cooler;

Keeping you shaded while you are in the Tomcar;

Giving you souvenir bananas that you can dip in cold water and tie around your neck; and

Taking you to higher elevations where it’s 2 to 4 degrees cooler, on average.
