Make new friends as you adventure together or book a private tour for just you and your loved ones. All Jeeps tours can be made exclusive so that you may operate on your own schedule. Public tours depart promptly at tour time with the guests that have arrived.
Comfort and Safety.
Jeep tours are good for all ages. Please bring booster seats and car seats for kids.
AOW has a team of fabricators, mechanics, fleet managers, and technicians to make sure that each Jeep is in top shape. All modifications are done in-house so that your safety can be put first when the vehicles are designed. Breakdowns can and do happen on tour, but they are rare and part of the adventure.
Jeep tours operate year-round. The vehicles are stocked with rain ponchos, winter coats, wool blankets, and some have heated seats. There will be a full cooler of cold water on our custom carrying rack for hot summer days.
All tours are at your own risk, just like driving in your own vehicle, but you will be riding with a highly experienced driver. AOW has an incredible safety record with a team of local guides that have driven these trails thousands of times. Go with an Arizona pro.
Book with confidence knowing that you can cancel for any reason at least 24-hours in advance for a full refund. No refunds for cancellations within 24-hours of the departure.
Reservations are required for all tours. You can also walk up to book at the WeKoPa Resort, but departures fill up fast, so space is not guaranteed without a booking.
