This exhilarating four-hour off-road tour begins at the hotel when you are picked up in a military-style hummer truck. Your driver/guide will entertain you with state legends and stories, as well as the facts about the hummer.  This excursion is not your ordinary 4-wheel desert tour. The tour will take you to some of the best scenery found in the state.  You will drive through water, over hills, up steep rock face and laugh at the little obstacles that are out there.  In the heart of the Sonoran Desert, guests will leave the hummer for a nature walk. Your guide will discuss the unique plants indigenous to this desert, describe the ways in which Native Americans used these plants in daily  life and discuss desert animals.
