Full description
Enjoy an exciting day in the famous Sonoran desert, off-roading in your single-passenger or 4-person ATV on some of the best trails in the stunning Bradshaw Mountains, located just north of Phoenix. Travel through giant Saguaro cacti, deep canyons carved by flash flooding rains, and cross the Aqua Fria River to experience the wild and vast desert terrain. Our tours create a scenic and educational journey amid some of the most rugged landscapes Arizona has to offer, with opportunities to see abundant desert wildlife such as coyotes, bobcats, deer, rabbits, quail and even rattlesnakes. The guided ATV tour begins approximately 45 minutes north of Phoenix in the Sonoran desert near the Agua Fria River Valley. This area, amidst the beautiful Bradshaw Mountains, is perfect for off-roading. There are creek crossings and places for wash riding, as well as gorgeous views of the Arizona landscape.  You’ll be accompanied by a certified guide with a vast knowledge of the plant life, wildlife, history and climate of the area. You can hear stories about the Native Americans who once farmed, hunted, survived and evolved in this unforgiving desert.

Great trip through the desert. Not cheap, but then, again, how many of us have our own UTV that we can drive through the desert. We took the group tour and started a few minutes late due to the late arrival of a large bridal shower, but the staff kept us entertained and well hydrated while waiting and throughout the tour. Would highly recommend to anyone visiting the area or unfamiliar with the desert environment.

The ATV ride is fun and exciting. Could be a little daunting if you have never ride a atv before. You get about 1/2 hour training to familiarize The atv. If you know how to ride a bicycle then you would be fine riding atv. If not UTV is fun as well. Just like driving a golf cart. Lol. Either way it’s a fun adventure.

Super fun, best time is for the drivers! Next time I would split the four of us into two cars instead of one. (Only one opportunity to switch drivers). Or go for the individual quads. (But the. Again some people don’t like/want to drive so this 4 rider vehicle would be perfect) I recommend bringing your own buff/mask. They provide one but ….. ha ha ! I also have bad dust allergies and this is a dust bowl adventure !! So I brought my own mask to wear under the head/face protector they provide and it helped reduce how much dust I inhaled The guides are amazing, we had TYLER, what a joy he is! He lives his job and Brad Johnson, owner is colorful personality, hard worker and great business vision for the company.
