Two driving tours are available for you to explore the desert. The first is the half-day Tomcar ATV tour, which lasts about 3 to 3.5 hours as your guide takes you through the dynamic desert terrain. Be sure to bring your camera along, as the tour takes you deep into the Sonoran Desert and you’ll no doubt encounter some incredible views, and maybe even a few furry and scaled desert creatures, too.
For those who would rather explore the desert by night, you can try the Tomcar Sunset ATV Tour. This 2.5-hour tour takes you out to Sunset Point, as you watch the sun dip behind the Arizona mountains and cast an array of colors across the desert. After dark, you’ll switch on the Tomcar’s off-road LED light bar and head further into the desert in search of nocturnal creatures such as scorpions, coyotes, and possibly a bobcat or mountain lion.
If an ATV desert tour doesn’t get your adrenaline pumping, you can test your skills as part of a special operations unit in one of Desert Wolf Tours’ combat simulators. Choose from four different simulators where your team will be outfitted with uniforms, tactical gear, and non-lethal training weapons to experience training similar to what is used by special forces.
Desert Wolf Tours is just 40 minutes outside of downtown Phoenix and downtown Scottsdale, making it a convenient day trip for locals or travelers from either city. To drive the Tomcar, you must be at least 18 years old with a valid driver’s license. Each Tomcar seats up to 4 passengers and is equipped with a 4-point safety harness system, and those under the age of 12 must wear a safety helmet.
