    Escape to the scenic trails of the Sonoran Desert in an open-air Jeep! Our guides are experts in local history and the flora & fauna of the desert, so whether you are a first time visitor or lifelong resident, you will be both educated and entertained. You can bet the sightseeing will be absolutely breathtaking: giant saguaro, cholla and prickly pear cacti, mountain backdrops and in season spectacular desert wildflowers.

    You will get in and out of your Jeep for talks and demonstrations and will also experience up close and first hand some amazing desert critters (for those not faint of heart!). So bring along your camera and capture the beauty of the landscape on this fun and educational Jeep tour!

    Approximate Cost is $125 per person.
