Jennifer, our guide, was knowledgable, entertaining and focused on our safety throughout the hike. The views of Phoenix at sunrise from the mountain top were beautiful. Strongly recommend, but make sure you wear good hiking shoes.

My adult son and I had an AMAZING sunset hike with guide Matt. He was so knowledgeable with pointing out various things along the way. He was patient and engaged throughout the entire hike. The views were stunning and the hike itself was very manageable. This adventure is highly recommended and a must-see thing to do when visiting Phoenix.

It was a great experience to start the day with a hike and a sunrise. Jay, our guide, was friendly, profesional and he gave us info about the area and the flora. The hike is not difficult and is not in the middle of nowhere ( which we liked).

Great sunset hike! This was our second time hiking with Matt, the first time as a couple and this time with our two children. He did a great job keeping our kids engaged and sharing information about the area, geology and plants that we would not have known about otherwise. Highly recommend!

Enjoyed the Hike - Ryan was a super guide very friendly

I did this hike on my last night in Phoenix and I am so glad that I did. It was wonderful. Ryan our guide was fantastic. Such a pleasant person. There were two other couples and myself on the hike lead by Ryan. One thing to note is when you do this hike as a solo person its costs $195 not $125 as it is PP when you are booking for more than one. This is clear when you are booking. I just wondered why it was so much more when there were other people also on the hike. I still think it was worth it. And I would recommend this activity. My hiking abilities are moderate. (Remember to bring cash so you can tip your guide)

A beautiful way to start the day and see the city. Matt took the time to educate us on the landscape, geology, and botany of the area. No gear needed, Matt had everything for our use.

I booked a sunrise hike with Matt. I was surprised that I was the only guest, but I enjoyed the 3 mile hike. He was helpful in explaining the different plants and scenery while going up the hike. It was gorgeous seeing the sun rise and taking photos along the way. I enjoyed my time seeing the views of Phoenix and getting to know Matt. I recommend going on this tour! I enjoyed my time on this tour.
