What You'll Get

To make the body produce sweet, sweet adrenaline, some people hunt wild lions without the aid of a segway. Today's Groupon gives you a more comfortable way to excite your cellular infrastructure: for $59, you get one ticket for an off-road Tomcar tour of the Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation (a $119 value) from Green Zebra Adventures in Scottsdale. Cars hold 2–4 passengers, so get multiple Groupons to bring along a co-pilot or two. Tours depart from the Green Zebra base at 9 a.m. and 2 p.m.

Green Zebra Adventures allows participants a chance to steer the unparalleled terrain ferry that is the Tomcar through a portion of 23,000 acres of the Sonoran Desert. At the beginning of the three–four hour tour, you can flip a talismanic clump of desert dust to determine who will take the wheel first. After setting out on a relatively mellow road to get a handle on the vehicle, passengers will follow their guide out onto the breathtaking uneven terrain. Scheduled stops grant opportunities to switch drivers, snap photos of saguaro cacti, and take a quick dip in the Verde River (weather permitting). Aside from an appetite for brush, rocks, and path-invading cacti, your desert chariot comes equipped with four-point racing-regulated safety belts that ensure Mom's piece of mind as you zip over the Sonoran path. Four-wheel independent suspension and a high ground clearance allow passengers to enjoy the off-road experience without the whiplash and jostle-hip commonly associated with all-terrain vehicles.

Green Zebra guides provide the perfect historic soundtrack to Arizona's austere expanse, regaling travelers with tales of the Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation and other Southwestern lore. Ice-cold bottled water, goggles, and bandanas are included with the purchase of a tour, so you can keep heat and sand at bay while wrapping your head in the accessory preferred by middle-aged pro wrestlers and heat-beating gardeners. Tomcar drivers and passengers should come equipped with closed-toe shoes, comfortable clothes, towels, and plenty of sunscreen.

Tour reservations can be made starting Monday, August 2. Must be four years old to ride and 18+ with a valid driver's license to drive. Hotel pick-up and drop-off services are not included with this deal.


Though Green Zebra Adventures and its off-road tours have yet to receive many online reviews, the company was featured by FOX 10, and four TripAdvisors give it an average of 4.5 owl eyes.

  • Green Zebra Adventures put on a very professional and exciting excursion through the Sonoran Desert! The Green Zebra staff clearly explained how to operate the vehicles and expressed high regards to safety. – Sterritup, TripAdvisor
  • It certainly was eye-opening to be in the middle of the desert and see both plant/animal life you rarely see. At one point along the tour, we saw wild horses! – STL_Ryan, TripAdvisor
