How ITE Tours Work
Typically tours will be a full-day tour or two-day tour but of course this is your trip, if you want multiple days then we can make it happen.
It starts with call with Fraser to discuss where you want to go, what things you want to see, the level of hikes you would like, time you have available and of course what kind of food, restaurants and apres you are looking for.
Your entire trip will be planned for you, you will be picked up from hotel/airport in a luxury vehicle and your adventure awaits.

Each year ITE feeds & clothes countless numbers of kids as well as providing sports scholarships. event experiences and builds soccer & basketball courts around the world! For more see www.cysfoundation.com or on Instagram here CYS Instagram.
ITE Tours are adventure tours where we take you on your private customized adventure from start to finish. We specialize in taking you hiking, eating great food and the best apres adventure spot for you.
If you want intense hikes, easy hikes, waterfalls, views, all is possible as we curate the perfect day/s for you.
Our trips are not about botany or history or geology, our goal is to purely plan your trip for you and create the absolute perfect itinerary for what you want to do and then take you on one of the best adventures you will ever have!
While can of course give you advice for flights and where to stay at your home base before the trip, but all of that will be booked by you.
ITE’s tours begin on the day your tour starts and hosts you for that 1+ day adventure.
Where Do ITE Tours Go?
ITE is based in Phoenix, thus for one-day tours, Sedona, Scottsdale, Phoenix, Payson, Tonto National Forest Gems and some other nearby waterfalls and hikes are ideal.
However, the Grand Canyon, Page with Horseshoe Bend & Antelope Canyon, Tucson, Flagstaff, Big Bear Mountain in CA and Zion in Utah are all options if wanting to do multiple day tours.
We can discuss your length of time and goals on the intro call to plan the best trip possible. Keep in mind, some places do require permits very far in advance so we will adjust per what is available.
See our article here on the best hikes in Arizona to get excited or brainstorm!
You will be taken around in a 2022 BMW X5 with max occupancy of 4 guests. However, if your group is larger we will rent a luxury SUV (Tahoe/Suburban) to accommodate more guests.
This is a luxury, private and customized travel agent & tour guide experience, thus you get what you pay for. You will have your guide for the entire day or multiple days pending what you want to do.
