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.
Owned and run by Irish transplants, Tim Finnegan’s recreates an authentic pub atmosphere to enjoy traditional dishes as well as international soccer matches. The pub takes its name from James Joyce's final novel, Finnegans Wake, and reflects its Celtic heritage both behind the bar and on the menu. Taps hide cold drafts of Harp, Guinness, and Smithwick's, and the kitchen fills tables with plates of corned beef and cabbage or traditional Irish breakfast, served regardless of what time it is in Belfast.
The Bleacher Report called out Finnegan's as a top destination to catch Euro 2012 matches, and fans are regularly found clustered around the long bar or lacquered wooden tables to cheer on their teams. Musicians can test new material or their ability to follow instructions on Wednesday night open mics or Sunday karaoke, while teams can test their wits on Tuesday with pub trivia. Monday and Thursday though Saturday nights are reserved for live music.

By their estimate, Kelly and Steve Fischer have taught thousands of people how to scuba-dive. As the course director and IDC staff instructor, respectively, at Phoenix Scuba, they draw from more than a decade of expertise to lead a team of master dive instructors, certified open-water instructors, and assistant scuba instructors. These coaches all follow the PADI curriculum to teach students basic through advanced diving skills, such as navigating underwater or bartering with dolphins. Open-water and advanced open-water certification courses lead the way with hands-on lake dives, and can open the door to specialized courses such as rescue diver or NITROX enriched air certifications.
Phoenix Scuba's instructors don't just limit their instruction to local waters: the school has also led extended trips to dive sites in the waters of Belize, Grand Cayman, and Fiji, among others.
