A very knowledgeable driver/guide. A very comfortable van. Got some valuable history lessons and really enjoyed the day. Will recommend this tour to anyone who wants to see Phoenix and Scottsdale in a day.
We thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Our guide, John, was great. He arrived right on time to pick us up and he was a never-ending source of information. We thought this tour gave us a comprehensive intro to the Phoenix area.
Our guide and driver Bob was fun and knowledgeable about the sites we visited. Impressive were the memorials around the state capital. The tour of the Biltmore was a highlight. He took us to old Town scotsdale for the finale of the tour. What I appreciated most were the tips about the sites we were going to visit in the coming week.
Didn't think I'd make this trip because of a very dreadful taxi ride en route, but VIATOR kept me in touch with the local operator, Wonderful Guillermo kept in touch by phone and waited for me! He was a terrific guide and made sure everyone ended up where they needed to be. Fabulous experience!
This was a great choice for a tour of the Phoenix area. Tour guide Mark was very informative.
It is an excellent way to get an overview of Phoenix/Scottsdale if you don't care for driving in a large city. The driver also gives you small interesting details about the area that you may not find about otherwise. I would definitely recommend it,

Great tour for anyone wanting a good overview of Phoenix and Scottsdale. The guide was excellent and very knowledgeable.
Mike our tour guide was very passionate about what he does and made this tour very enjoyable by giving us alot of information about Phoenix and area. We went downtown and saw the Capitol building and the park dedicated to those who served and were lost in the war. We also took a trip up South Mountain and were able to take some fantastic photos high above the city. Went to the Biltmore Hotel and area and Old Towne Scottsdale for lunch and shopping which was really good. We now have a better idea of the Phoenix area.
