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

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.

Our guide Mark was fun and it was a good day trip. There was a lot to do in Tombstone and the OK Corral reenactment was a hoot!

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!

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

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!!!
