We had the good fortune of connecting with Monica Nicodemus and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Monica, what do you attribute your success to?
We are a Boutique Company. Each experience is specially contoured for our guests. No cookie cutter tours.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
We had always worked for other companies and public organizations. Succeeding in all of our endeavors. Upon moving to Arizona, we felt a love for our city of Scottsdale and wanted to share it with others. We opened our own company in 2013 as a transportation company which pivoted to a tour and experience company.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
We would first suggest taking an Urban Historic Tour with us. Our tour shares art, history, museums, restaurants, merchants and the unique districts Old Town Scottsdale has to offer. As The Concierge on wheels we have quite a portfolio of hiking, biking, outdoor activities and activities for adults and families in the surrounding areas of the valley of the sun.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
We would not be able to offer our experiences if it were not for the Support of local merchants, restaurants, bars and customers in Old Town Scottsdale.
