Tucson is an area of Arizona that is rich in history and is commonly known as the "Old Pueblo." Your knowledgeable guide takes you on a journey from the first origins of Tucson 12,000 years ago to the present.

Your tour begins at the San Xavier del Bac Mission, a National Historic Landmark. The mission was founded in the early 1700s by Jesuit missionaries and earned the nickname "The White Dove of the Desert" due to its distinctive white facade. Inside, view the original statuary and murals and paintings created by its builders.

The colorful adobe dwellings of Barrio Historico provide a distinctive backdrop for photos before you continue to the modern part of the city. Admire the extravagant homes of Snob Hollow, where the early elite families settled, and the Garden of Gethsemane—filled with statues depicting biblical scenes. After you explore the shops and restaurants of Old Town Artisans in downtown Tucson, visit the University of Arizona campus. Catch a glimpse of "A" Mountain, also called Sentinel Peak, before shopping at the stores on the popular half-mile stretch of 4th Avenue.
