Even though it was raining pretty hard, Frank did an excellent job of staying ahead of the rain and getting us outside. He showed us native Arizona cacti and other plants. We then went on the Dolly for a trip around Canyon Lake. It was awesome even in the rain. Finally we stopped at a wonderful restaurant in Tortilla Flats that had prickly pear lemonade and prickly pear ice cream! Just a wonderful day.

This was a great tour! Our guide, Zane was knowledgeable, funny, picked us up at our location “on time” and he was a good driver! He truly made this excursion a memorable event. The Lost Dutchman Park was beautiful, and the stories we heard about it were interesting. The steamboat ride was wonderful! We highly recommend this tour.

We loved every moment of our activities. The nature walk, the boat ride and tortilla flat for lunch and shopping. Our guide Frank was wonderful. He was knowledgeable, friendly and just a good hearted person. I would recommend this tour. We got our monies worth for sure.

Our guide Frank was great explaining about Phoenix's natural habitat and the different tribes while going to this Apache Trail & steamboat excursion. It was beautiful & relaxing. Happy I picked this. Enjoy!

Tayler was excellent! Very informative! Learned a lot!
