Our founder's interest in Arizona's back country took on a new dimension in 1992 when he bought his first 4x4, a 1969 International Scout, from his grandfather. Like many first cars, it was not the most reliable. But, it was the vehicle that allowed him access to the freedom of Arizona backroads and provided the opportunity for impromptu hiking trips!
In 1998, he upgraded his 4x4 to a 1994 Jeep Wrangler and a love of Jeeps was born.
4x4 Required Adventures is the culmination of our founder's passion for exploring Arizona by four wheel drive.
4x4 Required Adventures was founded with the goal of providing our guests the best possible guided jeep tours in Arizona.
Whether it is a 3 hour trek into the Sonoran desert north of Phoenix or a true crime tour through Downtown Phoenix’s infamous past, 4x4 Required Adventures will provide you a memorable experience. Our tours are part adventurous, part educational, and always entertaining.
4x4 Required Adventures has assembled a team who all love to share their knowledge of Arizona’s history and ecology. All of our tour guides are natives of Arizona and combined have decades of experience operating a variety of 4x4s and off-road vehicles. In addition, our team members have traveled extensively throughout the state and beyond. We know what it’s like to be a tourist as well as a local looking to find fun activities.
Our experiences drive our customer service model: “Treat the guest the way we would want to be treated.”
Being a smaller, family-owned operation allows us to have greater personal connections with our guests as well as greater flexibility with all of our tours. Unlike some of the bigger names in the game, we do not focus on volume with back-to-back tours and vehicles modified to maximize passenger occupancy. We focus on the guest’s experience.
All of our tours are private party trips, and all of our Jeeps retain their factory OEM seating arrangements which means OEM passenger safety and comfort.
To show our commitment to our community and our customers we are Appreciate AZ certified, members of Local First Arizona, and our owner is a Certified Tourism Ambassador.
In addition, all of our tour guides are CPR/First Aid Certified as well as having previous experience working as first responders for emergency services.
Thank you for taking the time to look into what we have to offer and we look forward to providing you a Jeep tour to remember!
