So I don’t really recall why I booked this tour but I’m so very glad that I did. It was awesome. There were three of us and the guide, Mac. Who was excellent by the way. He picked me up at my hotel and we started talking immediately. He is very full of knowledge about the city

We enjoyed Tracey, our driver and guide. He was friendly, knowledgeable and shared so many interesting facts about the areas we visited. Our tour was small, so he talked to each of us and answered all questions. Traffic in Phoenix is heavy, so the tour gave us a chance to see

It's true! When you allow DETOURS to do all the driving and planning for your day, we allow you to soak up your surroundings and focus on what really matters - relaxing and learning! Thanks for sharing your experience with us on TripAdvisor. Sounds like you had a pretty good experience with Tracey! Our guides take pride in what they do and it truly shows out there on the road. You can't teach something like that.

Tour could have been about 4 hours rather than 5-6 as we spent almost an hour each way picking up and dropping off other tour participants. Since we were first to be picked up, we were last to be dropped off. Not many highlights to see in Phoenix -- spent 2 hours having lunch

Thank you for reaching out and sharing your experience with us. While we do not get out and explore each location on foot during this tour, our tour guides do narrate throughout the tour when we are driving through Phoenix and showcasing the Valley. (Not to mention the stops at the Arizona Biltmore, Arizona Biltmore, and the Arizona State Capitol building) Our lunch itinerary in Old Town Scottsdale is an hour and fifteen minutes, not two hours. In regards to the pick-ups, we looked into this and your trip's pick-ups were all within the same vicinity.  We have called each and every other guest on this tour to confirm or deny these claims as the tour guide, Tracey, you went with has a history of putting on phenomenal City tours. All the other guests loved the tour. Coincidentally, we had one of our senior guides go out on a ride along for this tour as well so we have a near picture perfect image on how this tour actually transpired. While we apologize for your experience, there is little we could have done to improve the tour you went on. We do hope that you will join us again soon!
