Our new, very special Tucson History & Libation Walking Tour last month was a real hit, so we are offering it again on Sunday, January 15, 2017 starting at 10 AM in the Courtyard of the Mercado on West Congress. Get the full schedule of tour dates here.
This is your opportunity to see 1870's Tucson through the eyes of saloon keeper, George Hand who left us a most insightful diary. We will be hopping on and off the Modern Streetcar, so the walking is a leisurely 2 miles with plenty of places to sit and relax along the way.
Heirloom Food & Libation From The Spanish Era
Among other delights, we will again offer wine and food tastings from the Spanish era 300 years ago. No, the wine and food are NOT 300-years-old. But the heirloom fruit is from Mission Garden where they grow descendants of grapes and pomegranates brought to this region by Father Kino in the late 1690's. And the food tastings are from the same ingredients used by the soldiers and settlers at the Presidio from 1776. So you will be tasting what they tasted.
As we always do on this Downtown Tucson Walking Tour, we will enjoy a fine lunch at Maynards in the historic Train Depot.
Price: $65 All-Inclusive. Streetcar Day Pass; Admissions; Heirloom Tastings; Proprietary History Packet; Amazing Stories From Back In The Day; plus an excellent lunch with libations.
Purchase Tickets Here. Limited to 20 participants.
Some Tours Suspended
Hopefully it will be temporary, but we have suspended our Ghost Town and Santa Cruz River Valley Tours until further notice. Until we find some reasonable remedy, Old Jimmy's back is just not up to guiding an all-day tour. But a half-day tour riding on Zippy, his trusty electric scooter, seems to work out well. We will be announcing our tours 2-3 weeks ahead of schedule, so please sign up for one of our newsletters if you are interested.
We so love showing our guests the wonders of Southern Arizona, and hope that we may return to doing so soon.
We will still offer occasional Charter Tours if we are physically able. We can certainly make recommendations if we cannot accommodate you.
