Desert Off Road Tours in Scottsdale
The desert off-road tours in Scottsdale are interesting because they bring you outside the city into the landscapes that are almost completely devoid of people. Guests from Phoenix also enjoy this tour, because they get to see the mountains and canyons as they were cut by time, and have many chances to take pictures.
This tour has a tour guide who takes you out in an off-road vehicle for at least half a day of fun. You are allowed to take pictures as you go, and you are shown the places where people explored in the past. The whole of the Scottsdale desert must be explored so that you can have the best time, and you could bring your whole family.
You must take this tour when you do not want to spend another day in the city, and you are quickly swept into the desert where it is quiet and beautiful. There are many little landmarks that you must try, and there are many more landmarks that you must see that allow you to learn the history of the region and how it was explored.
Someone who has come to the Scottsdale area will have a nice time on this tour, and they do not have to lift a finger. The purpose of the tour is to get you in a place where you have nothing but beauty to behold.

Originally engineered with the rugged landscape of the Israeli desert in mind, the Tomcar off-road vehicle offers the highest standard of safety, performance, and reliability on the market. Built to a professional grade with a high clearance and a low center of gravity, the vehicle is as equally adept carrying heavy picnic baskets loaded with food as it is carrying heavy military artillery. After arriving at the facility just outside of Scottsdale for a short orientation, you will head out along private trails with a professional guide.
Throughout the 2.5-hour ride, you will climb up rocky hillsides, safely bend around sharp turns, and push through scrub brush into wide-open views of the Sonoran Desert. Along the way, your expert guide will teach you about the unique geology and fascinating history of the private reservation while you search for wild horses grazing along the side of the road and bald eagles soaring overhead. You will stop three times along the way for photos and water, interrupting the adventure with moments of back country stillness.
At the conclusion of the tour, you will return the main facility to decompress and hydrate while sharing stories and photographs with your fellow vacation passengers. During the winter season, the tour is available three times between morning and early afternoon. During the high temperatures of the summer season, one morning departure time is available before the heat of the desert afternoon.
