She found out that my family were one of the founding families of Tucson and decided to go out of her way to show me where my family directly lived and our history after the regular tour. Thank you so much for this!!! I'll never forget it. She was so friendly, knowledgeable, and truly listened to us what we were looking for. I completely recommend this. Thank you again for a memorable time!!!

We had a wonderful tour with Raquel. She was warm, friendly and enthusiastic! Loved the Mexican bakery treat and exploring the beautiful Tucson neighborhoods and homes.
This trip made Tucson fun for us.

Priscilla was energetic, fun, informative and organized. Despite rainy cold weather she adjusted smoothly and she got everything in for us. Loved the lovely old homes and the Sonoran hot dog redtajrant.
It was very interesting and informative.

Priscilla was very informative & acquainted with many of the people who worked or lived in areas visited. They would converse with us and share stories. It added interest and knowledge for us.
Terrific tour!

Our tour guide was highly knowledgeable, had a great sense of humor, answered all our questions, gauged her approach seamlessly for a newly transplanted resident as well as visitors to the area--something for everyone. A great bargain at the price--worth much more. I highly recommend this adventure.
Fantastic Tour!

What a fantastic tour! Priscilla is so knowledgeable and so much fun. She truly gives a "behind the scenes" experience that makes learning about Tucson a blast. We felt like we were being guided by a best friend with a PhD in Tucson. Thank you Priscilla for the amazing tour of Tucson and we look forward to doing it again with visiting friends and family!!!
