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!
