Sonoran Desert Tours

 

We’re not the #1 Ranked Off-Road Adventure for nothing!  All our tours  begin in New River at the Road Runner Restaurant & Saloon.  Just a short drive from most Scottsdale/Phoenix hotels (20-45 minutes) this is not your Western Wannabe kind of place.  Cowboys and locals offer you a real window into our culture.  The burgers, chops and steaks are great and you’ll want to spend some time there before or after our tour.  All our tours have amazing LOCAL guides that will fill you with knowledge on the history, culture, animal, and plant life that inhabit our amazing desert!

Come join us and see an AMAZING Arizona sunset.

Come experience the rugged Sonoran Desert on our new kind of tour experience in one of the most agile troop carriers in the World. The Pinzgauer is a highly accomplished off-road military vehicle capable of going places that even Hummers cannot. Hop in the back of our Pinzgauer and experience the Arizona sunset like never before! Your Adventure Guide will traverse the dynamic terrain and bring you to “Sunset Point”, where you will watch the beautiful sunset cast an array of colors through the sky as it dips behind the distant mountain vistas. It’s a sunset you are sure to remember! Once the darkness rises over the eastern horizon, we will head further on your journey while the desert takes on a new life. As the nocturnal creatures come out, you might just find among them Scorpions, which glow like the moon under our backlights, the famous Western Diamondback Rattler, Desert Mice, Jack Rabbits, Coyotes, and if you are lucky… possibly a Bobcat or majestic Mountain Lion! This is truly a once in a lifetime experience! Come see the Sonoran Desert like never before!
