What people are saying about Phoenix Metropolitan Area

This trip was long but well worth it. Our tour guide Bobby was great! He was timely, knowledgeable, super friendly and just fun. He came to pick us up in a nice, clean air conditioned van. The tour group was very small which we liked. We got to spot and take pictures along the way and the sights were just amazing. We also got to stop and eat and a bit of shopping. The weather was perfect and so was the tour. Highly recommend!

This was an amazing experience. Our pilot Jon was great, and kept us entertained with his jokes. I mentioned that I had gifted myself this trip for my birthday, and the crew went out of their way to make it special and memorable. The whole experience was seamless and very organized. Fantastic, 10/10, would recommend.

We loved it! We will definitely go again when we are back in Arizona. Jacob our pilot was super attentive! And such a professional pilot! We felt safe and the location was great
