Arizona's vast wilderness hides many stunning vistas, hard-to-find visual treasures that may require an experienced guide to reach safely. Luckily, Arizona Scenic Tours' founder Steve Gerhart has walked the state virtually from end to end in his 25 years as a hiker and explorer. His expertise extends beyond the wilderness, too. He and his tour guides navigate Bisbee and Prescott just as ably as Sedona or the Grand Canyon.
The company packages these excursions a few different ways. Visitors can choose from more than a dozen single-day tours, including outings to Tombstone, the Apache Trail, and a cluster of Spanish missions. If they have more time to spare, they can also sign up for a multi-day tour of Southwest National Parks or just count down from 50,000 until it's time to go to work again.
