AMAZING! Not for faint of heart, bear in mind the unguided ATV/UTV options and shooting range package
, Nov 2021
AMAZING!!! We arrived an hour late (check how far you are in advance if you book this! Phoenix is big!) and we missed the tour but they offered us a UTV (4-seater) or ATV unguided tour instead, or that we could wait for next guided tour in 3 hours. We took the unguided, got our face socks, goggle, bottles of water, signed a waiver, got a 7-minute instruction, and they sent us on our way and IT WAS SO FUN - However something to be aware of if you're risk averse, I spent the first 10 min driving repeating "I can't believe they just gave this to me!" - this is an advanced course with cliff edges, steep slopes, big drops, and plenty of bumps - all which add to the fun - but just something to be aware of - the waiver is there for a real reason lol. I am female and I was using 70% forearm strength to steer a lot of the time - it is ACTIVE steering and driving. Within 30 min I was comfortable and picked up more speed but again just something to know if planning something with small children or cautious friends. I think it ended up being a blessing in disguise to do the unguided UTV tour - my companion was happy to be a passenger, it gave us more freedom to adventure, and I wonder if we would've been eating people's dust if we did the ATV group with 20 people - so maybe I'd recommend booking the unguided UTV or ATVs if you're reading this. The staff is friendly and accommodating and deserve their 10-20% tips. Lots of parking. They also have a shooting range with handguns and machine guns if you want to make a day of it and go there after. The cacti and desert landscape was really beautiful. I never write reviews like this but it really is 10 stars. I left feeling alive from the adventure adrenaline rush and there are few experiences like that for $99
Awesome adventure for any adrenaline junkie 😁

We had a lot of fun. The whole tour was challenging and our tour guide was awesome giving us tips during the whole adventure. Very attentive to our needs and took care of everyone in the group. There were some injuries so remember to be very cautious as it looks easier than it’s actually is! Overall would love to do it again!

Very unorganized. Unguided tours disrupted guided tours. Tour only 90 minutes. Dangerous for some participants who are inexperienced.
Thrilling and Great Guides
, Nov 2021
Fast check in, great training, and our guide Martin was amazing. One group had lost their original guide and Martin got them back to our main area with no man left behind.
Just do it!
, Nov 2021
Loved it. Period. Do it, even if you’re timid, do it! I heard this one lady who was worried in a UTV adjacent to us prior to starting. She did great!
Best time ever
, Nov 2021
Best time ever. Staff was experienced and knowledgeable and made great suggestions for us as beginner riders. We had the best guides - Bryan and Martin were very friendly, patient, knowledgeable and careful. They checked in with riders throughout the course and made sure we were all ok as well as taught us about our environment. Such a fun time! I highly recommend!
Not worth the amount of money.
, Nov 2021
Horribly unorganized and unsafe. Had to wait two hours to even begin and 2 people had flipped their ATVs before even getting on the trail. I am not one to leave bad reviews but this was an unorganized unsafe mess. Would not waste my money here again.
Awesome day!!!

We had a enjoyable and great experience Will visit again!! Tour guides were very friendly and knowledgeable
Great Outdoor fun!
, Nov 2021
This was so much fun!! The directions to get to the lot were super easy to follow! Once there they got us checked in and ready to go pretty quickly! They gave quick training the was easy to understand and effective! They had a couple of practice courses to help you get comfortable with the machine. Once on the trail it was a blast! It was a bumpy ride but it was so fun! Our guide Jaylon was extremely knowledgeable. There was one part of the trail that was a little rougher than the others. The guide stopped and explained the best way to handle that part. It was great! I would 100% recommended this!
Needs more organization
, Nov 2021
I don’t know if it was the specific day we went or if this happens all the time but I felt like our trip was kind of disorganized. It took us a whole hour just to get everyone checked in, get a helmet and goggles, and get an ATV. They gave good instructions on how to get up and around the hills. We had plenty of preparation and teaching once we finally got going. I didn’t like how I somehow got separated from my partner. When they were giving us instruction they only made some people do the practice course twice. And with the organization issues, it took forever for us to actually get going on the course. The sunset ride was probably my favorite because the desert area looking amazing with the sun setting. Our tour guide was amazing. He was always checking on the people in the back of the line. Overall, the trip was good. But I feel like it could have gone a lot smoother.
