Meet Your guide

Jarrod Riddle

owner and master tour guide

Spirit of Arizona Tours doesn’t just show you Arizona but immerses you in the spirit and heart of Arizona. We want you to really experience, what makes Arizona the destination for tourists from all over the world.

At Spirit of Arizona Tours, you’re not touring with a mystery tour guide. Your experience starts and stops with me. I have been guiding this state personally for over 10 years. I love this state. I love the history, the beauty and the mysterious that comes with it. My passion is having you experience what makes this state unique and delivering the quality tour you deserve. All of our stops are hand-picked for their diversity and uniqueness with many of the tours we offer not available through other agencies. 


I have been guiding and personally exploring this state for many years and know what will stand out to make your experience as memorable as possible. I’ve worked for the state of Arizona in their history department and in 2018 I coauthored a presentation at the Arizona state historic preservation conference. I’ve also had the privilege of assisting with curating a Wyatt Earp exhibit in the city of Tombstone’s courthouse museum. My strongest field of knowledge is history, but I am very well versed in desert ecology, botany and zoology. Loving the state and all great locations that I do; all of our stops are hand-picked. No other tours explore the variety of locations that we do.

The wonderful thing about being locally owned and operated is we will explore the state with the events and seasons as they present themselves. Whenever there is a seasonal event or attraction, we will cater the tour to include them. Whether it’s Christmas lights in Phoenix and Prescott, the changing of leaves of fall that color up the north in Sedona or the thrilling experience of a Doc-Holliday’s event in Tombstone, wherever you want to go, we’ll take you!

I would love to hear from you if you have any questions or need help planning your experience while visiting Arizona. I look forward to being your tour guide as you experience the best Arizona has to offer!

Experience Arizona in a Whole New Way!
