About Vertical Hiking Tours
After going on a number of boring hikes around Phoenix, the husband-and-wife duo behind Vertical Hiking Tours decided they had the perfect solution—pair hikes with other fun things to do in Phoenix. On one of their hikes, for example, the group explores the Phoenix desert while a photographer teaches techniques for capturing its natural beauty. On another desert hike, the group makes frequent stops to strike yoga poses, guided by a yoga instructor. Every excursion is also helmed by a guide certified in CPR, and First Aid.
