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!
A Recent Review of this guide
Eric provided a great tour experience. He was thorough, responsive and communicative leading up to the day of the tour. He was patient, knowledgeable and understanding of our custom tour requirements considering we had kids and grandparents. The vehicle was comfortable and well equipped with amenities such as water, snacks and reading materials. We would use Eric again for a different tour next time we are in the area.
