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!
