For over 25 years Desert Dog Offroad has been offering guided desert tours in the Sonoran Desert. Enter the desert at sunset, as the creatures of the night start to stir. Let our informative and entertaining local guides show you the secrets of the evening desert while you enjoy the excitement of a Offroad Jeep tour.

There is a requirement of 4 people for this tour.

Know More about this tour

Once the sun goes down, the Sonoran Desert becomes especially intriguing. Mountains that are rugged and majestic during daylight hours become dark, sleeping giants after sundown.

The mighty Saguaro Cactus lives up to its reputation of being the "Sentinel of the Desert", standing guard as the creatures of the night stir from their day-long hibernation from the desert heat.

Go beyond the boundaries of a regular jeep in the unstoppable Hummer as you travel deeper into the desert than an ordinary tour can go.

    We had a great time on the jeep tour. Two adults and two kids, ages 10 and 13. We did the sunset tour which I highly recommend. Not too hot, but still lots to see. Gorgeous sunset! Our knowledgeable guide, Sheralynn, sought out (and found!) glowing scorpions. Sheralynn was an excellent driver. Only thing we’d like to have had was a bit more out-of-Jeep time walking/exploring. I booked the trip very late in our vacation, as a last minute decision. The organizer, Michelle, was super responsive and great to work with. She fit us in and gave us all the information we needed. I highly recommend this experience, and Desert Dogs!

    We had a lot of fun on the Jeep tour. Our guides, Kevin and Spencer, shared their vast knowledge of the desert plants and animals. We watched a beautiful sunset and continued more off-roading after the sun finally set. It was an adventurous tour for our group of 6 that we will certainly remember from our long weekend in the Phoenix area.

    Great time! Personalized, fun, and safe! Guides were friendly and knowledgeable. Beautiful scenery! I took my three teenagers, and they loved the gorgeous backdrop (ya know, Insta pics and all) and learning new information. Highly recommend!

    Riding a Jeep Wrangler through the Sonoran Desert is a highly recommended experience, especially with Kevin as your guide. He was informative, funny, interesting and he kept us going strong the entire trek. Beautiful scenery and great weather combine to make this tour a can't/don't miss if your traveling to the Valley of the Sun!

    We did not find any critters...but it was still a great experience! Our tour guide Kevin was a wealth of knowledge, easy to talk to and a great guide! Going into the dessert and seeing the everything in light of day and then seeing it again at night...such a fun day. But stopping and watching the sunset in the dessert, the breath taking veiws and the picture opportunities...made this a one of a kind excursion. Highly recommend!

    Let me just say that our guide, Kevin, was an amazing human! He had such love and knowledge of land and it’s inhabitants! Amazing...

    Kevin was our tour guide and he was fabulous and very knowledgeable. He found us the perfect spot to stop for a minute and get out and capture the sunset. We saw some wild mustangs, a fox, and a jack rabbit! So glad i booked this! It was just me and my boyfriend, this was not a group tour.

    I wanted a custom trip to learn all I could about the Sonoran Desert. This was a longer trip than normal, that included the night tour. We drove in a Hummer. This trip gets an A++! I had Kevin as a guide and he was amazing with his knowledge of the desert plants and animals. His personality is really easy-going and made the trip comfortable and fun-the time just flew by-too fast! We stopped often to check things out. I learned how to spot certain plants, identify jojoba beans, and tips to gather water in the desert and knowledge on rattlesnake much more.... All of this while moving through amazing terrain. I was able to hold a tarantula and we found some wild horses. Of course, the SUNSET and being in the desert at night was SUPER COOL. Michelle was organized and professional in setting up the trip. And, packed delicious snacks. I was spoiled. I appreciate their flexibility in changing dates due to being snowed in Chicago. I wasn't expecting that. Thanks. This has been a dream of mine for a long time. So, thanks to AZ Adv/Desert Dog and Kevin for creating a magical experience. I can tell the Sonoran Desert has many moods and I'll have to keep returning to experience them all. I highly recommend this company for your tour.
