Overview

When visiting Scottsdale or Phoenix, experience the Sonoran Desert on a night tour by Jeep, the tough four-wheel drive vehicle that lets you go further into the desert on rougher terrain than most other vehicles. Your expert guide leads this thrilling tour through the otherworldly scenery of the nighttime desert and shares informative commentary about the plant and animal life, history and legends of the region throughout your journey. Look for the creatures of the night as they stir from their rest, and enjoy the desert in the cool of the evening.
  • 4-hour night tour of the Sonoran Desert by Jeep 4WD vehicle, from Phoenix
  • Take on rough terrain on a Jeep tour that goes deep into the Sonoran Desert
  • See desert creatures that only come out at night

    After pickup from select Phoenix-area hotels (if option selected) or meeting at the designated spot, your knowledgeable guide takes you out in the Hummer to begin your night tour in the Sonoran Desert. If you're lucky, conditions will allow you to see an amazing sunset over the desert landscape as you zoom along.

    After sundown, the desert takes on a different atmosphere. The mighty saguaro cactus, known as the 'Sentinel of the Desert,' stands tall as nocturnal creatures stir from their shelter after the desert heat subsides. Rugged and majestic mountains transform into huge, sleeping giants at night.

    Go beyond the capacity of a regular car as you roar through the desert in your Hummer, 4-wheeling over sand, dirt and hills with stops along the way to search for critters such as rattlesnakes, coyotes and tarantulas. The tough Hummer allows you to travel deeper into the desert than other tours, while your expert guide shares lots of fascinating stories about the wildlife, ecology and history of this part of the American Southwest.

    At the end of approximately four hours, your guide returns you to your starting point where your tour ends.

    Riding a Jeep Wrangler through the Sonoran Desert is a highly recommended experience, especially with Kevin as your guide. He was informative, funny, interesting and he kept us going strong the entire trek. Beautiful scenery and great weather combine to make this tour a can't/don't miss if your traveling to the Valley of the Sun!

    We did not find any critters...but it was still a great experience! Our tour guide Kevin was a wealth of knowledge, easy to talk to and a great guide! Going into the dessert and seeing the everything in light of day and then seeing it again at night...such a fun day. But stopping and watching the sunset in the dessert, the breath taking veiws and the picture opportunities...made this a one of a kind excursion. Highly recommend!

    Kevin was our tour guide and he was fabulous and very knowledgeable. He found us the perfect spot to stop for a minute and get out and capture the sunset. We saw some wild mustangs, a fox, and a jack rabbit! So glad i booked this! It was just me and my boyfriend, this was not a group tour.

    The tour was nice and the driver was very informative. I was not happy about not being picked up at the Hotel we selected. The Company Desert Dog did not want to travel to that location so we had to drive to Fountain Hills to there location. The Company would not make two round trips from Fountain Hills to Goodyear.

    The 5 stars is rewarded to our guide. He was very knowledgeable, friendly, and accommodating. The vehicle, however, was in need of major repairs! We wondered if we were going to return safely! The night tour really isn't much during cooler weather as far as seeing any creepy crawlies. We never saw any wild life which maybe was a result of the noisy, broken down vehicle. But the guide....superb!
