Spend a day in the "Town Too Tough To Die". Walk the streets past Big Nose Kate's Saloon, the OK Corral and the Birdcage Theater. The legendary home of Doc Holliday and Wyatt Earp is yours to explore with a visit to the Tombstone Historical Courthouse and the Boot Hill Cemetery, where some of the West's most colorful characters were laid to rest. A truly unique stop of the tour is the "White Dove of the Desert", the mission of San Xavier del Bac. This working mission was built in 1692 and remains one of the region's best preserved Spanish settlements.
Come along with us and we'll help you relive the reality and legends of one of the West's most famous towns. Known as the "Town Too Tough To Die", Tombstone was home to the true men and women of the West. Outlaws, businessmen, miners, and cattlemen flocked to the area in the late 1870's for their chance to strike it rich.
With such a colorful group of individuals in close quarters its no wonder this town was a powder keg waiting to explode. The most famous lawman of Tombstone, and the entire West, was Wyatt Earp. Wyatt and his brothers originally came to Tombstone as entrepreneurs; however, with the increasing unrest they needed to protect their investment in the mining industry and became lawmen. During the tour, guests will be able to stand on the very ground Wyatt stood on during the shoot out at the OK Corral!
While in Tombstone, guests have a chance to visit both sides of this "colorful" town. The original gathering spots for outlaws and gunmen who strolled into town were Big Nose Kate's Saloon and the Bird Cage Theater. The Bird Cage Theater, which had the reputation as "the wickedest nightspot between Basin Street and the Barbary Coast", was a saloon, gambling parlor, and theater show that provided entertainment 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, for 8 years to anyone brave enough to enter. For those men and women who were "overly brave" and fell afoul of the law, they had to make a visit the Tombstone Courthouse.
Included in your tour will be entrance to the museum at the Tombstone Courthouse, which pays homage to the brave souls who did their best to keep the peace in this rough and tumble town. True to the reputation of the Wild West, gunfights and stand-offs were a weekly occurrence. For those souls unfortunate enough to be on the losing end of those gun battles, they were buried at the infamous Boot Hill Cemetery. The cemetery aptly got its name from those who died with their boots on and were buried as such.
As we return to Phoenix, we visit the White Dove of The Desert, one of the Southwest's best preserved missions at San Xavier del Bac. Founded in 1692, the San Xavier Mission is still in operation and allows guests to marvel at the ornate craftsmanship showcasing both Spanish and Native influences. Original frescoes and statuary are still on display within the mission for guests to admire as well.
