The UTV ride was excellent. Our guide, Anthony, was extremely helpful, cautious, informative and funny. Midway we stopped and Anthony explained the Sonora Desert and surrounding areas. He even knew a bunch about the plants and animals that inhabit the Sonora Desert. Highly recommend this activity.

What a great, fun experience. Sam was a great guide. He was funny, informative, remembered names and just made it a fun outing. The UTVs were in great working order and the trails were fun, some challenging, but completely safe. It was a great experience and a great value. Highly recommend!

Austin and Jeff were great guides. They were easygoing and very welcoming. We were running late because we couldn’t find the place, but they were very flexible. It was an amazing experience and I would do it again!
