What a great way to see and learn about this reservation. Don Blanco was our guide and he shared so much about the history, the creatures and environment. My son is 12 so he was excited about riding the segway, but it was a great educational experience as well. There was plenty to see and beautiful scenery as well. It is a little pricey, so I would imagine not easy for families to afford, but we were fortunate to have the ability to go. Get your guide did told us an hour earlier than the actual departure time.. Don said with it being later/ cooler in the year, they change start times to a bit later.- But it was worth the wait.

Our 21 year old grandson came to AZ for a visit and we wanted to do something different that he would enjoy. He had a great time and the history of the valley was also interesting to learn. Mastering the Segway was easier than I expected and the guide added humor at every turn. I would recommend this adventure. Lots of laughs

Tim was a superb guide. First we had a training section with the Segway so we were comfortable going forward, stopping turning left, right, etc. Secondly he was the rarest or rare teachers-he made learning, FUN! He told us the history of the local Indians, he taught us the geography and all about the local cacti. He even had each Segway fitted with a liter of water-it gets hot out in the desert. He also had a great sense of humor.
