Have a unique experience in our desert metropolis! Phoenix is the 5th largest US city; spread across almost 75 miles East - West and North - South, there are many things to see and do here all year. Some highlights: The downtown area including the Historic District •The Arizona Science Center, the Phoenix Suns Arena, The Herberger Theater, The Civic Plaza •The State Capitol area including the USS Arizona + Veterans Memorials. Phoenix's new Light Rail line •The Phoenix Art Museum, The Heard Museum, Heritage SQ, and Pueblo Grande Museum. St. Marys Basilica •Hard Rock Café •Alice Cooperstown •Chase Field, Papago Park/Phoenix Zoo/Desert Botanical Gardens Stop Overlook - (Great views of the Valley from this location for pictures!) Of course, these are just suggestions; I look forward to working with you to create an itinerary to suit your needs and schedule!

A Recent Review of this tour

Eric was on time and was very gracious as he beagn the tour offering water and fruit frequently in the desert heat. We traveled to a local park early and made a nice desert hike for an hour on Squaw Peak that was wonderful. We then were treated to all kinds of insider information as we cruised through downtown Phoenix and Scottsdale. Eric stopped frequently at local sites and we listened to his stories of the history and culture surrounding the venue. I would recommend Eric to anyone visting Pheonix!
