Our guide-led Sonoran Desert Jeep Tour is a bumpy, low-speed sightseeing tour through the scenic and rigorous off-road trails of the Tonto National Forest. Our professional tour guides teach you about Sonoran Desert flora, wildlife, and Native American history while trekking through the most scenic off-road trails in northeast of Scottsdale.


This tour is completely Private. We meet at our Office location 8711 E. Pinnacle Peak Rd F-108 Scottsdale 85255 (East side of Plaza) for a 3-hour adventure of a lifetime!

We use specially modified off-road vehicles that fit 6, 7, or 14 passengers.


Closed-toe shoes are required since we venture out on foot at our designated stopping points. During the fall and winter months, be sure to bring a jacket. Temperatures in the desert are known to drop into the 30s after sunset, especially on the ride back to our office in the open-air off-road vehicles. We recommend wearing comfortable outdoor clothing that will show up well in your photographs (there will be plenty!).
