My passion for the desert southwest and outdoors brought me to AZ after many vacations here. My previous life experience was working in progressive politics. I left the office behind to follow my heart giving personal, up close tours of our desert land in 2006, briefly working for a corporate tour company. Following my experience touring van loads of people, I began offering personal driving tours of the Phoenix area as an alternative to "jamming people into vans" for rushed trips to tourist traps. I prefer offering laid back, unrushed tours of Phoenix/Scottsdale and the Valley as well as "Backroad" adventures to the incredible Apache Trail and other sites that the tour companies can't - or won't go to. My Scottsdale/Phoenix City tour is my most popular & a great introduction to the area. Want a tour with a different drop off? (i. e. Airport Car rental or remote location, etc)? I offer a Custom City Tour to modify to your itinerary/schedule. I look forward to working with you to create a tour to suit your needs! I enjoy showing my city and the desert southwest to people who come here and appreciate its amazing beauty. If you would like a tour that is not listed for a specific time/date, feel free to message me for availability. If you are looking for a laid back, relaxed, quality personal tour to enjoy the serenity of our land I would be glad to show you our beautiful land!
