Deep purples often reign as bright, warm yellows mix with glowing oranges, radiant reds, and all shades of heartbreakingly brilliant blues.
The Arizona sky serves as the vivid canvas splashed with these vibrant colors at sunset, with each evening producing a unique masterpiece to behold on the horizon in the Phoenix & Scottsdale area.
Nothing quite compares to these remarkable natural artworks lighting up the night in the Valley of the Sun.
Perhaps the best place to experience this heaven-sent fireworks show is in the soothing solace of the Sonoran Desert.
And that makes a guided sunset hiking
or mountain bike tour
with the Wild Bunch Desert Guides
the perfect vehicle for witnessing the one-of-a-kind wonder of the Arizona sun colorfully crashing down on the horizon.
We take groups of 25 people or less on mountain biking, and 30 or less on guided hiking adventures they'll remember for a lifetime. Booking with Wild Bunch Desert Guides you will discover the exotic wild west beauty of Arizona’s picturesque Sonoran Desert. Groups of 10 or more please call us at 602-663-0842 to book. Smaller groups, please book online below.
Whether hiking or biking -- either alone or with a chosen travel party – these 90-minute sunset tours
are offered with a 3:30 p.m. pickup
at your resort/hotel or a 4:00 p.m. meet-the-guide-at-the-trail
Those times do vary starting in mid-October because of earlier-and-earlier sunsets leading into winter. Adjustments also are required each spring when a superior Arizona sundown becomes progressively later in the evening.
For exact times on the dates desired, and discuss your own splendid sunset tour, please contact the Wild Bunch at 602-663-0842

Sunset tours are a popular choice for people flying in same day--please note that these same day arrival bookings are non-refundable meaning if your flight is late or cancelled and you have taken the risk of booking same day and you don’t show up you will be charged in full. That said we can try to get you out on another day however either way you will be charged in full. So please think about this risk.
Same as any Wild Bunch guided adventure, the sunset tours are exclusively private
to you and your family or travel party. There is no squeezing in some random college kids from Cleveland, or Bob from Buffalo and his annoying girlfriend Karen from Kalamazoo.
These are not the bus tours packed with tourists from one of the big box stores in town.
Instead of flying commercial, you are on a private jet to fun and memorable moments with the Wild Bunch.
And these sunset tours are absolutely made for couples – especially those marking an anniversary, birthday or special milestone, with a delightfully romantic sunset awaiting as our gift to you.
Sunset tours from the Wild Bunch also are completely customizable
during the booking process with our details-oriented personalized follow-up.
You are not herded along like cattle on the same well-worn path listening to the same script you could hear on every Jungle Cruise at Disneyland or Disney World
Instead, Wild Bunch takes the time to get to know you – and know about your special needs and wishes
-- because you are more than a faceless number to us.
The big box commercial outfits are worried about their bottom line. The Wild Bunch worries about your unforgettably great times.
So, you decide on the soundtrack to your real-life action movie and dance to the beat of your own drummer as the colorful curtain comes down on another day in Phoenix and Scottsdale.
Just don’t forget you are the photographer documenting this memory-making, too, so be sure to snap some incredible photos while enjoying the breathtaking view. (We might surprise you by snapping a few pictures, too!)
Almost better than the best sunset you will ever witness?
Except for dressing you for the conditions, the Wild Bunch Desert Guides
take care of every other logistical concern.
So, you are covered with snacks and water for your guided hiking or mountain bike tour in Phoenix and Scottsdale.
Wild Bunch also provides the hiking necessities in the backpacks you will borrow or provide the mountain biking gear needed to traverse the trails.
And with a medically trained professional guide at your side, there is no need for maps or navigational gear or other safety concerns on your adventure tour.
Just be sure to check the forecasted temperatures and bring along a jacket, if necessary, in the cooler months.
Oh! And be sure to charge your cellphone for any emergencies – like the phone call to family and friends missing out on the fantastic scenes you are about to add to your vacation photo album.
