Spectacular
Taylor picked us up at our hotel and we proceeded to have the most awesome day on Apache Trail He was very intelligent regarding everything we saw. He pointed out various animals, stone structures, and various history regarding the Apache Trail. We traveled the “Superstition Mountains” and learned so much about the history of the area. The Steamboat tour was very well done. Very comfortable and great “Captain” that pointed out big horned sheep and various rock formations. It was so relaxing. The vehicle that we traveled in was so accommodating. Water , cookies, step stool, looked brand new. Taylor went above and beyond to take care of us! Thanks so much,

We had such a good time on our day trip. Bee was absolutely wonderful and adjusted out schedule with the delay we had in the steamboat tour. We got to see stunning views and learned so much about the area and culture. Great fun if you are looking for a nice day trip. Ask for Bee!

Amazingly Beautiful
8-9 hr day and worth it. The trail we drove on was constant s cuves through spectacular hills, cliffs, and around water. The rock and greenery and water were amazing. Stopped at a staged cowboy town, well done and fun. Then drove to the steamboat Dolly. It was a chilly day, took jackets, scarf and gloves. Have the choice of sitting inside or out. Sat ouside, it was fine with jacket and scarf and the sun. Saw bighorn rams and ewes living on steep cliffs, eagles flying and nesting, and beautiful scenery. Can buy what you want, I got hot coffee and popcorn. Saw great cliff formations and one that looked like an elephant. Disenbarked and later stopped at Tortilla Flats for lunch, they were swamped so our group decided to go nextdoor to an outside bar and got chili, coffee, and were treated to a live band. Cold but fun, like camping. Our guide Kim was so informative and fun the entire time. She went back to the van while we were at the outside bar and found my phone that fell out of my pocket. We stopped at a park to see the various cactus varieties. Glad I found out about the jumping cactus. Very pretty and scenic trip. Would do it again.

Wonderful Day in AZ
Jan 2020
A perfect day to enjoy a trip to see the beauty of Arizona. I was picked up at my hotel at 9 and returned home before 5. Our guide did a very good job of giving us interesting information about all aspects of plant life, the history of the region, and pointed out interesting sites along the way. The time on the steamboat Dolly was great. We saw Big Horned Sheep as well as an eagle’s nest. Rock structures were amazing. Tortilla Flat was very busy but a fun place to stop. If you go, be sure to enjoy an ice cream. Delish! Overall, a great guide and an enjoyable day.

Our tour with Arizona Tours
Dec 2019
We took the Apache Trail & Dolly steam boat tours . We were picked up from our hotel around 9-15 AM & were dropped off around 7-30 PM. Our guide & driver of the van was Mark who was very knowledgeable & well versed about the area. First we went to Lost Dutchman State Park. . Lots of thorny bushes & some that will jump & stick to you which we saw first hand when one of the thorns got on Mark's jeans. It was funny .We then went on the Apache Trail through the Sonora District. Long winding roads . Heard about the history of the place, & the desert landscape on the 45 minute drive through the valley. Had a rest stop & went on the Dolly Steam Boat ride through the Canyon Lake. Wonderful relaxing 90 minute cruise in an old fashioned steam boat . The captain gave a beautiful presentation about the cruise in the Canyon Lake. We saw mountain goats, long horned sheep & even a few eagles. We had lunch at the famous Tortilla Flat. Enjoyed the desert sunset view on the way back. All in all it is a trip well worth.

It was a beautiful day, a little windy but our friends from Ohio, really enjoyed it. We even saw some mountain goats and was able to seat wherever we wanted. The wait wasn't too bad.
