No experience delivers the natural beauty and adrenaline rush of off-roading through the desert, except maybe getting fired from a cannon through a landscape painting. Feel the rush with this Groupon.

- $149 for a half-day Tomcar tour of the Sonoran Desert for two (up to a $290 value)

On each 3.5- to 4-hour tour, guests traverse the Sonoran Desert in Tomcars, which are durable, safe off-roading vehicles built with four-wheel independent suspension atop steel-tube chassis. Departing from Road Runner Steak House in New River, tours visit destinations such as a turquoise mine, Native American ruins, and a ghost town. Drivers may also spot wildlife, such as collared peccaries, mule deer, and rattlesnakes. Tours depart at either at 8:30 a.m. or 1:30 p.m. and require reservations.
Desert Wolf Tours
As the Bradshaw Mountain range stretches into the Sonoran Dessert, its landscapes change quickly. Shrub-strewn hills dip into valleys dotted with cacti. Clear streams run through dense copses, and then open to bare, clay-red plateaus. The guides at Desert Wolf Tours unveil these unforgiving yet magical landscapes, chiefly by leading caravans of Tomcars. These all-terrain vehicles let guests power over rocks, up hillsides, and through card towers to visit destinations such as old turquoise and gold mines and a ghost town.
Desert Wolf's team also takes visitors into the desert for recreational target shooting, supplying them with firearms, such as M16 rifles and Glock 17 handguns, to shoot under the supervision of NRA-certified instructors. Desert Wolf, a family-owned business, adheres to eco-friendly practices, participating in programs such as the Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics. These efforts have not only earned the respect of guests, but also a certificate of excellence from TripAdvisor.
