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.

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.

Good trip. Early rise but well worth it. Driver/Guide chatted all the way about Wyat Earp and Doc Holiday and all their pals. San Xavier Mission was a nice break in the journey

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.
