Desert Wolf off Road Experience

Great views, fantastic desert experience, got to see wild donkeys, and great guides. It was definitely a unique desert off-road experience in these buggies. Lots of fun and great guides to make the event a complete family blast. Know before you go in you are going to get dusty. Bring your own eye wear and know its desert off roading. So glad we had the experience with Desert Wolf. A unique part of our vacation!

Adventure in the Desert—don’t miss out

Travis and Mike were incredible. They were knowledgeable, helpful, fun, and made the adventure the best. Our kids loved it and so did we. We learned so much about the Sonoran desert and they made Lear I feel fun. Ample stops along the way and it was super cool to have this rugged drive on amazing scenery. Something we don’t get on the east coast. Travis even recommended a lunch place that was truly local and we loved it! Highest recommendation for these guides and this trip!

Travis and Mike were fantastic guides! They were very knowledgeable and entertaining. They gave great instructions on how to drive the TomCar. We really enjoyed the facts they shared about the plants and wildlife during our stops. The drive was really fun. We had 3 generations in our group (10 and 12 year old boys, a mom and a grandma) and everyone had a blast. Plan to get dusty and plan to have fun!

Derik & Brandi were great! Between the on trail repairs, information, and terrain…I’d do it again. This isn’t a desert dune buggies or racing trip though, if you’re looking for something like that. The meetup spot is also a nice saloon that has real bull riding, bands, and is definitely western!

Fantastic trip that I would highly recommend to all!

This was a very well operated, professional and fun excursion. Derik and Terrance were amazing and really helped make sure everyone was safe and enjoying the adventure. The best part was being able to enjoy off-roading in a controlled way with the family and taking advantage of the beautiful AZ topography.

Experiencing the climbing power up, over and through things. Our guide went out of his way to help a minor stay warm and comfortable due to her lack of warm clothing. In addition our two guides made the trip interesting and safe.

Matt and Travis were awesome! Super knowledgeable and friendly! Kids will love it! If you like outdoor activities with a little adrenaline this is your tour... Be prepared to get dirty!!! Hats, Sunglasses, and gators recommended! Love the Sunset for the 2pm tour.. great photo opportunities... but just remember you might have a dirt facial with an orange hue. 😆 The roadrunner saloon is a good place for entertainment afterwards. We went on a Saturday so they had live music and bull riding... remember it is a BAR... but they do allow all ages after dark. They do charge a cover charge for events... overall super random, but fun! Truly enjoyed this tour! Thanks again for the memories and education! I will be trying mesquite bark flour!
