The two British buddies who dreamt up Real London Bus Company imported authentic London-style double-decker buses to shuttle guests around the city. With a fleet of four busses that can ferry up to 65 passengers each, they operate assorted tours throughout the area—including pub crawls to local dives and treasure hunts that explore downtown Phoenix, Mill Avenue, and Old Town Scottsdale—with the help of knowledgeable though decidedly nonandroid guides. They also make their busses available for special events such as proms, weddings, girls' nights out, or charters for corporate occasions, including past clients Go Daddy and Coors Light.
The experienced staffers at Prestige Automotive Group LLC brandish specific skills that play to the auto shop’s strengths: owner Brad Starr recently became the garage's Volvo master, having completed training and acclimated himself to Volvo's new Vida computer system, and two mechanics lay claim to ASE-certification, specializing in Volvos, and European and Asian-made vehicles. Despite their specialized knowledge, with outstretched wrench the techs happily welcome any car that needs an oil change, repair, or a polite reminder that its hood is open, servicing engines as customers connect to the facility's free WiFi during visits. The staff also thwarts inconvenience by comping carless motorists for one day of car rentals under certain conditions or helping to procure rentals at reduced rates.
The team from Valley Wide Moving gladly handles the heavy lifting and every other aspect of the moving process.

The team also takes care to properly handle specialty items, from pianos to pool tables to self-playing pool tables.
Global Exotic Car Rentals puts clients in the drivers' seats of some of Europe's and North America's finest four-wheeled vehicles. They do so with ride-alongs, rentals, and chauffeur service in shiny new Cadillacs, Porsches, Ferraris, and Lamborghinis. During 24-hour rental periods, drivers cruise the streets and highways in a luxurious exotic sports car, with car delivery and pick-up services available across Arizona. A menu of VIP services lavishes customers with transportation to and from major airports and private chauffeur services that could render showing up to one's job as a traffic court judge truly cinematic.
Rated the top nursery for the last 10 years by AZ Business magazine, Moon Valley Nurseries complements its extensive inventory of plants and trees with services such as delivery, installation, and tips for care. The knowledgeable staff can help customers navigate the green aisles of trees and plants, which encompass such Plant Kingdom constituents as Palm Trees, Flowering Trees, Shrubs, and, during the holiday season, Christmas Trees. They also grow their own inventory so they can maintain direct control over the health and well being of their plants, whether treating them with the correct combination of fertilizers or pressuring admittance boards to make sure each seed gets into the best of nursery schools.
The experienced tour guides at Segway of Scottsdale lead fleets of two-wheelers through one of two scenic Arizona cities during an extensive schedule of rides. Guests gear up for either of the 90-minute tours by hopping aboard a segway, whose self-balancing technology allows riders to tilt handlebars gently for turns or quickly for back flips. Each session begins with a 30-minute orientation, followed by a narrated jaunt past the towering opulence of the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort in Phoenix or around the city-flanked oasis of Tempe Town Lake. During the summer months, groups traverse the town's bridges and boulevards at dusk, stopping by landmarks such as Arizona State University and Sun Devil Stadium, whose eponymous student-athletes practice under solar-powered stadium lights to escape the chill of night. The Old Town Scottsdale Tour in particular is noted for its historic charm.
