Please check the weather forecast a few hours before your trip to ensure that you are properly prepared for your tour. Remember that temperatures will drop about 10 degrees for every 1000′ elevation increase. Safari tours will climb approximately 1500′ while private tours could climb as much as 4000.’ We do carry blankets just in case it cools off more than expected. Also, please keep in mind that the weather can change very quickly in the desert southwest, especially during our monsoon season of July – September. Clear mornings can often become rainy afternoons in the late summer. Mild rain will not cause cancellation, but heavy rains may limit our ability to travel dirt-roads. We will notify you of potential schedule changes a few hours prior to departure time.
Although injuries on our trips are extremely rare, our drivers are trained in first-aid and we do carry a first-aid kit in our vehicles. Obviously, prevention of injuries is essential. While driving, your most important responsibility is to wear your seat-belt, drink plenty of water, and keep limbs inside the vehicle at all times. During walks, please watch for prickly plants, stinging insects and snakes. Avoid reaching your hands into places that you can’t see. Watch the ground a few feet ahead of you while walking. Avoid throwing or climbing on rocks and stay several feet behind steep ledges. Please watch young children closely and recognize that your safety is your responsibility. Please notify your driver immediately if you are sick or injured in any way.
You will be traveling in some of the most scenic country in the world. It is recommended that at least one person in your party bring a camera. The driver will be happy to take a group shot for you during stops. Drivers will stop at the most frequently photographed areas, but they will make additional photo stops upon request.
Your drivers do their best to provide an enjoyable and informative tour. Discretionary tipping is customary, and it’s always appreciated, though never required.
