What a great day! Our guide, Charles,was the best. It was like spending the day with an old friend. An extremely knowledgeable and informative old friend. Wouldn't hesitate to sign up for another tour. Thanks!

Beautiful hike

Really like this outfit - tour guides are great. We also did the stand-up paddle boarding the day before. Our guide, Phil, took us on a 3 mile hike in the McDowell Mountain Preserve and gave us a lot of information on local flora and fauna. Would recommend highly!

Absolutely the best!

I've done many hikes with AOA and they've all been absolutely amazing. The guides are professional, knowledgeable, outgoing and experts on desert flora and fauna. I'm not much of a tour person, but if I'm going to do it, I'm doing it with AOA!

Beautiful hike!!
My family of 5 did a guided hike at the Sonoran Preserve with Denny this week and it was fantastic!! What made it even better was that we were the only ones in the hiking group. He was very informative about everything within the preserve and kept us motivated by asking engaging questions. He made sure we were well hydrated and had us stop to have an energy snack. We loved how personable Denny was with each of us. He’s just wonderful and we were extremely happy to be able to start out our Arizona trip with such a great experience.

Thank you Denny for making our hike a memorable one. It was a good workout but at the same time relaxing if that makes sense.

Great hike!
My husband & I booked this tour run by Arizona Outdoor Adventures and loved it!! Steve was our guide & was so knowledgeable, accommodating & kept us at a good pace. We learned a great deal about the desert, its plant & animal life, its history, and while it was a pretty warm day, Steve made sure we had breaks & stayed hydrated. It was exactly what we hoped for during our visit to Scottsdale. We would highly recommend this tour, especially if Steve is leading it!

Mountain Biking
Mar 2016 • Family
We had two private half day rides, one for our son, an intermediate rider, and one for my husband and me (beginners). Both experiences were excellent. Linda and Larry were both fantastic guides that I would recommend to anyone and request in the future. They were personable, professional and fun to be with. Linda gave our son a workout, covering 20 miles of single track that morning! Larry taught my husband and me the basics and took us on trails that started very easy and worked up to trails that challenged us without getting over our heads. We learned all about the Sonoran desert, took plenty of pictures and learned a good bit about mountain biking. Even learning to bike, we covered just over 11 miles. We saw much more than we could have just taking a hike. If you are visiting Phoenix/Scottsdale, spending a morning biking with AOA is a must.
