       WELCOME TO TUCSON!

       What nature created has been enhanced by the people who have populated the area. The area is
       surrounded by the memory of the Ancient Ones by standing Petroglyphs and other forms of rock art
       adorning the cliffs. Spanish, Mexican and Anglo-American cultures have blended together to create
       a “New West” culture which a visitor can hear, see and feel. Just listen to a cowboy’s “yippee” or a
       melody from one of the many Mariachi bands.

       Attitude as well as ATTIRE in the area is CASUAL - in some of the finer restaurants, the gentlemen
       may feel more comfortable in a sport coat not necessarily a tie. This is the place to relax and
       unwind. Jeans and cowboy boots are the customary attire no matter what the event. Evenings in
       the winter months do dip down in the desert - so for those cookouts under the stars, a jacket should
       be tucked in your suitcase to help keep you warm by the fire.

       Arizona does not observe Daylight Savings Time. In the summer months, the Tucson Valley
       operates on Pacific Time (same as California) and in the winter months, we operate on Mountain
       Standard (same as Colorado).

event, but there are several wonderful restaurants to enjoy in Tubac.

TIME TBD
Tour Duration: 5 hours

TUBAC, ARIZONA AND SAN XAVIER MISSION DEL BAC

San Xavier is a gleaming white church rising from the desert as a testimonial to the faith of the early
Spanish missionaries and Indians that inhabited the area. The mission suffered greatly during its early
years due to revolts and raids of the natives. The oldest surviving parts date from 1757 and mystery
exists as to why the east bell tower and other parts were left unfinished. The “White Dove of the Desert”
is something to behold.

Next, we’ll travel to Tubac - a community with a history rich in diversity and culture. In the early 1700’s,
Tubac was the first European settlement in Arizona. Those settlers fled and the new inhabitants
discovered mines and the adventure-seekers poured into the booming region. The Civil War brought
those good times to an end but Tubac came back to life as an artist colony in the 1900’s which carry on
today. Your guests will have the opportunity to visit over 50 galleries and studios displaying modern
jewelry, ceramics, woodcarvings, prints, batiks and paintings.

This tour is a rain or shine event.

JEEP TOUR                                                                  Tour Duration: 3.5 hours
1:00PM – 4:30PM

Ride through the desert with the wind in your hair and the sun on your
back during our fun-filled, educational, four-wheel-drive jeep tour.

The tour begins when your guide arrives at Loews Ventana Canyon
Resort to lead you through some of the most beautiful and rugged desert
wilderness surrounding Tucson as you travel from civilization to primitive
country inhabited only by wildlife and ghosts of days gone by.

The ultimate way to "sink your teeth" into the Sonoran desert! Take a
Four-Wheel-Drive to the upper Sonoran Desert and meet first hand, the
indicator of the Sonoran, the Giant Saguaro Cactus. Stand at the base of
a 30 foot Saguaro and learn of its growth, the natural habitat and the
Indian legends surrounding this amazing beauty.

Your Cowboy or Native American Guide will entertain you as you learn
the more modern “Wild West” history of the Arizona Territory, complete
with stories of the outlaws, gunfighters, lawmen and range wars of this last-to-be-tamed territory.

Once deep into the desert an experienced Naturalist will lead the group on an extensive nature walk
through the desert where you will learn about plants and cacti which are unique to this desert. He will talk
of the ancient history of the desert and how the Native Americans used the desert plant life for thousands
of years for food, medicine, tools and raw materials for much of their daily needs. You will also learn
about the fabled “Water Cactus” (the real truth about it), and the one you can actually get moisture from.
You will see Native American Petroglyphs and Mortar Holes left in the rock by ancient peoples. Bring
your camera because the endless views of lush desert valleys and towering mountains are ones you
won't want to forget.

PRICE: $ 100.00 per person based on a minimum
guarantee of 6 guests
