 You Get To Drive!

As Arizona’s foremost self-drive tour outfit, we provide unique tours to proprietary attractions that no other company can offer.  Because we’re family owned, and local to Arizona, we don’t believe in cookie-cutter experiences…we have several offerings for families, couples, the more adventurous, group, and corporate guests.  And because we’re so near to most Scottsdale/Phoenix resorts, you’ll be able to spend more time in the desert and less time in somebody else’s van.

We use the world’s most comfortable vehicles, have the best guides, and play in the most interesting terrain.  With access to hundreds of thousands of acres just North of Phoenix full of Indian ruins, ghost towns, mines, river crossings and beautiful views, our guests leave our tours exhilarated, and knowledgeable.
