What You Can Expect

Day trip to Tombstone Arizona and San Xavier Mission from Phoenix

Day trip to Tombstone Arizona and San Xavier Mission from Phoenix

Spend the day visiting Tombstone Arizona, the "Town Too Tough to Die" and perhaps the most legendary mining camp of Arizona. See America's best example of Western heritage, Tombstone's 1880s buildings and artifacts that are well preserved and featured in numerous museums.

Walk the streets past Big Nose Kate’s Saloon, originally the Grand Hotel built in 1881 and later owned by the rumored girlfriend of Doc Holliday. Stop by the infamous OK Corral where the most famous 30-second gun fight ever happened. Pass the Birdcage Theatre, a combination of theater, saloon, gambling parlor and brothel. The legendary home of Doc Holliday and Wyatt Earp is yours to explore with a visit to the Tombstone Historical Courthouse and the Boot Hill Cemetery, where some of the west’s most colorful characters were laid to rest.

On the way back to Phoenix, visit a truly unique stop, the White Dove of The Desert, one of the Southwest's best preserved missions at San Xavier del Bac, just outside Tucson. The historic Spanish Catholic mission is known as the "place where the water appears", as the Santa Cruz River (which runs underground) surfaces nearby.

Relax in the luxury van on your trip back to Phoenix though the Sonoran Desert.

brilliant from start to finish. Right amount of free time, not a fan of churches so was surprised we had a1/2 hour stop at one on the way can't remember see that in the itinerary. Tombstone was great just as you would expect right out of the movies.

Dan provided great narration about local plants, pretty much on topics of interest to customers.

Tip: Let the Mission know ahead of time you are coming and perhaps a narrated tour can be provided upon arrival.

Tombstone, a sweetheart of a Western town.

I did not go on this trip - it was exchanged -
I attended two other trips - one to the south rim of the Grand Canyon and one to Sedona -
The tour guides for both trips were excellent and I can only recommend these day trips, which indeed I have done already.
Thank you for your follow up and flexibility to change the trips for me on short notice

This trip was really good fun. We had time to visit Big Nose Kates Saloon for lunch and then watch the Gun Fight at the OK Coral. To browse the town and savour the historic atmosphere especially the Birdcage Theater with all it's history and bullet holes. I will definately do the trip again next time I'm in Arizona.
Many thanks

Loved it. I was able to see more on this second trip. You need to go several times in order to see everything and all the history they have offer. The knowledgeable guide we had was great and made this a fun day in the old western town, we saw it come to life.

This was so much fun. Walk the town, meet the guys of the shows and had pictures with them. They really get into the theme and era. The cage was my favorite, history and great antiques they have there to see. Couldn't believe the size of the place. I definitely will be going again.

A must do trip if in Phoenix. We were there for one of the many Wyatt Earp days they celebrate so we were stepping out in time to relive the days of old... excellent trip

We had a good day and found Shane to be very informative. We liked outr side trips as well. We hope Shane didn't develop too many grey hairs worrying about the border patrol stop. We had great fun teasing him. We are Americans,eh??
