Day trip to Tombstone Arizona and San Xavier Mission from Phoenix

Day trip to Tombstone Arizona and San Xavier Mission from Phoenix

This historic day trip from Phoenix to Tombstone is like traveling back in time from a busy, modern urban metropolis to the days of the old Wild West. Here in The Town Too Tough To Die, hear the tales of debauchery and crime from this legendary frontier mining camp, where wooden buildings and dusty streets make it feel like it’s still 1880. 

While wandering the streets full of damsels and outlaws, stroll past Big Nose Kate’s Saloon that was once the Grand Hotel, which was built in 1881 and owned by a woman who was rumored to be the girlfriend of the feared gunfighter Doc Holliday. Make a stop by the OK Corral and hear about the infamous shootout, which some have called the world’s most famous 30-second gunfight. 

You’ll also see the Birdcage Theater, a strange combination of a theater, gambling parlor, saloon and brothel — the type of building that typified life in the old Wild West. At the Tombstone Historical Courthouse, see inside the home of Wyatt Earp and his gunfighting friend Doc Holliday, and travel up to Boot Hill Cemetery where famous frontiersmen are buried.

On the winding drive back north to Phoenix, stop outside Tucson for one of Arizona’s most popular Mission attractions: The White Dove of the Desert, Spanish-style Mission at San Xavier del Bac. The Catholic Mission was often referred to as 'the place where the water appears,' since the subterranean Santa Cruz River flows up to the surface nearby. After touring the historic Mission grounds, relax in comfort in the luxurious van as you enjoy the drive back to Phoenix with the earthy colors of the Sonoran desert racing just past your door.

We took the day tour to San Xavier and Tombstone/Boot Hill. What a great tour. Montana, our driver and guide, was absolutely fabulous. Lots of ground covered in one day but it was so enjoyable. Thanks, Montana!!!

Very informative, and entertaining. We had a great time and actually took a new interest in the old west. Group was small, lots of time to do whatever we chose in the time, lunch in the old saloon was a perfect touch! Would definitely do it again.

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.
