With a 6am pickup in Scottsdale and a 4 hour drive to Tombstone and the Mission plus an hour in ocmmute traffic on the return extra - back at 8pm - I would not advise if you want to sit in a small 13 pasenger bus for that long. The driver talked non stop about Wyatt Earp - 4 hours without a break, 3 hours too long in Tombstone - lunch, Courthouse and Boot Hill out in the freezing cold was more than I could handle. I did not feel that is was good value for $150 without lunch.
The trip gave you an idea of how rough it was to live, if someone didnt shoot or hang you first, in those days. The gunfight was entertaining and the printing press was very interesting. The coach was not very comfortable, lacked legroom hence the score.
This was a great trip!!! My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves... The guide, Montana was amazing - his stories and historical knowledge of the area added so much value to this experience. We highly recommend it!!!
We were already looking forward to seeing Tombstone, but having Montana as our tour guide just made it that much better! We thoroughly enjoyed this tour. The re-enactment of the OK-Corral shoot out was fun and we like how the characters included us. We hope that if you go on this tour, you have Montana as your guide. He made the entire ride informative, entertaining and enjoyable! Thank you Montana!! A little about the tour...we were on a tour shuttle bus down with very easy to listen to commentary from Montana. While in Tombstone, we ate lunch at the Crystal Palace. The open faced roast beef sandwich was delicious! While there, it's a must to see the re-enactment. I do wish we had just a little more time there, but the ride is pretty long from Scottsdale/Phoenix, so I get it. The ride back was fun because we got to watch some of the Tombstone movie and got some rest as well. We really had a great time!
This review is for the tour company to read. Our tour guide, Montana, did a fantastic job. He was very informative on the Tombstone history. He made sure to answer all questions and to keep all 6 of us hydrated due to the hot weather. This was the highlight having him as our guide and making us feel like family. Now why did I give it only two stars? 1. The van ran out of gas midway to our destination. Luckily Montana was able to get off of the expressway and we were stopped on the ramp. It was 110F sitting in the Ford Transit Connect Van in the sun. By luck there was a gas station three blocks away and Montatnaran to get enough gas to allow him to get the van refuled. The guage on the van showed 60 miles left before it needed to be refuled. Well ....... that was false which was no fault of Montana. We proceeded to our destination. 2. It was agreed that 3 1/2 hours in Tombstone with 117F was too long. 3. Unfortunatley the air conditioning in this van was useless. It was 117F outside and the van temperature with 84.5F I took a reading with the air on! All six passengers with extremelly uncomfortable and wet from sweating. I understand that it was hot outside, but to allow this to happen is shameful. Montana did whatever he could but faulty equipment got the best of this tour. Montana you did a fantastic job, thank you! Detours, may I suggest that you look into this before potential clients detour to a different vendor!
The trip was educational and fulfilling. The guide, Montana, was knowledgeable and entertaining. He was also very accommodating and helpful in every way. The tour brought history to life and was well worth the expenditure. The only suggestion I would make for anyone wanting to take the tour is to take it when the temperature is more like we think of Arizona. It was a bit on the chilly side.
