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.

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.

It was a really good time a lot of fun just challenging enough. The Gide also had a lot of really good information about the desert and all the things living there. Would completely recommend to anyone there was a large rang in ppl on our tour and it seemed like a great experience for them as well.

We were originally going to do a guided tour, but it was very busy and chaotic and unorganized, so we ended up going on our own. We had a great time. Trails could have been better marked. Sometimes the trails were narrow and there was on coming riders, so that was a bit difficult. But it was fun. Be prepared to get dirty. Very dusty.
