We have been to Arizona quite a lot, and didn't even know about this tour! We had such a peaceful day on the Lake. It was very informative and so beautiful. You just cannot go wrong. It is a steal at this price. You will love it! We are for sure going again . . . probably every time we are in Mesa. Oh, those beautiful mountains and cactus!

I've heard of this tour a few times before I decided to try it. My sister was visiting Arizona so I wanted to show her around and this was a great idea . . . Worth trying if you live here or if you're visiting from another state.

One of the best tours we took while visiting Phoenix. My sister even said that she enjoyed this tour more than our visit to the Grand Canyon! It was only approx an hour drive from Phoenix and well worth it. The views on this tour are amazing! Our tour guide was Captain John and he was fantastic. He did a great job explaining the history of the lake, Arizona, and the animals that live there. Throughout the tour he would point out animals and we were able to see a few bald eagles! Well worth the money for this tour, the views alone are breathtaking!
