We Hit the Trails, Rain or Shine!
Tours are cancelled only in extreme weather conditions or at the discretion of the Tonto National Forest or Apache Trail Tours.
Our guides are trained professionals who devote themselves to providing you the most educational and entertaining tour experience. Although we strive to provide a safe adventure, there are certain dangers involved that are beyond our control. Each guest will be required to sign an acknowledgement of risk.
A credit card is required to hold your reservation. Tours may be cancelled or rescheduled at no additional charge up to 48 hours prior to tour date/time. There are no refunds for cancellations after that time. Tours rescheduled 24 hours prior to original tour date/time, will incur a $10 fee. Reschedules on original tour date/time will incur a $25 charge. No shows will be charged full fare.
Please check in for your tour 15 minutes prior to departure. Jeeps roll on scheduled departure times. Late arrivals will either miss their tour (for which they are still financially responsible for) or their tour will be shortened by the amount of time they are late.
The company’s maiden tours in 1993 were in Jeep CJ’s. As business increased, Commanche pick-ups that would seat more people, were added. All of these original vehicles, now over 35 years old, are still used occasionally. However, the fleet has been enhanced and strengthened with the addition of customized Dodge pickups, a Chevy Blazer, and more. Our focus is not on Jeep, it is on providing comfortable, reliable transportation for your tour. Come hit the trails with us – adventure awaits!
- Closed-toe shoes (tennis shoes are fine)
- Sunscreen and/or hat, sunglasses, lip balm
- Lightweight wrap (the temperatures along desert floor and through the canyon area of the Apache Trail can vary from turn-to-turn)
The day you book your tour, seating is reserved, thus making those seats unavailable to other potential customers. Cancellations or reductions in headcount must be received a minimum of 48 hours prior to the date of your tour. Weather cancellations by Apache Trail Tours due to flash flood warning or active lightning in the area will be refunded. Reschedules within the 48-hour window will incur a $25 fee.
During season, tours are available 7 days a week. We are closed for business during the months of July, August and September as well as the following holidays: Easter Sunday, Memorial Day, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day.
You are welcome to bring your own contained snacks. Eating is not recommended while the vehicle is in motion.
When you call to make a reservation, please advise us in advance of any special needs anyone in your party has. We do not have the capability of carrying wheel chairs. Tour participants must be physically capable of accessing tour vehicle seating area without assistance. Access to seating area may involve stepping up, lifting legs up and over, bending/leaning over, turning sideways, etc. We will make every effort to accommodate you and provide a comfortable and fun adventure, however Trail Masters and company personnel reserve the right to refuse service to anyone not physically capable of accessing Jeep seating areas. Tour price less $25 for Trail Master call-out will be refunded if tour cancellation is the decision of Apache Trail Tours personnel.
