We will also overview and explain Tucson’s UNESCO designation as the City of Gastronomy. This is an opportunity to discover what makes Tucson such a unique and special place that forms part of the tapestry that is America.

There is approximately 2 miles total of walking distance on this urban trek along sidewalks and relatively level paved streets. Please be sure to bring comfortable shoes and sun protection – sunscreen, hat, and/or long-sleeved loose-fitting clothing as well as water.
The tour is divided into four themes based on our locations in Tucson including:

Spanish Colonial era

Sonoran Row House Architecture
A visit and admission to the Presidio San Agustin de Tucson museum are included.
