What you'll do

COVID SAFETY CHANGES:
-you will be driving your own car to each location. You will be given a list of locations with addresses for your GPS.
-we will all be wearing a mask and keep out distance

NOTE: most of our locations are outdoors so you will decide if you want to keep a mask on when walking outdoors. I just ask you keep your distance from other tour members.


My tour is something you will not find online when you Google things/activities to do in Tucson. It is a list of things that make Tucson special, interesting and sometimes weird. There’s nothing like a local’s insight and that’s what my tour is all about!! We will go to historic sights and neighborhoods, go try the best tacos and Sonoran hot dogs in town; all while leaning about Tucson architecture!

This is a driving and light walking tour. We will drive to different locations and do some light walking. We drive in a car caravan, if you dont have transportation please message me.

Will end the tour with a printed list of recommended places and restaurants to visit for the rest of your trip.
*will stop at taco shop and hot dog shops, not included in tour price, bring cash or credit card
**if theres a conflict with scheduling please contact me for availability

"My advice is to start your trip with Priscilla to get the ‘lay of the land’ and go back to the areas you liked during your tour. That way you will know which restaurants and neighborhoods to go to and the rest of your trip will be better planned..." -Jeff

I am a Tucson Native. During the day I am a school teacher and on my free time I love to show friends and people visiting Tucson why I love Tucson. I like to show people the real Tucson, the places that we locals are proud of, our delicious food and the authentic real Mexican food spots that make Tucson UNESCO first city of Gastronomy In the US.
I want tourists to leave loving Tucson, our culture and our food!

Don’t miss this one! Priscilla is a warm, knowledgeable and fun guide to parts of Tucson you probably would have missed. Her tour provided us with an experience that made our trip to Tucson special and informative. Highly recommended.

Amazing experience! Fantastic guide! So fun to see a range of different quirky and charming places specific to Tucson. There is no way I would have any of these places on my radar. Good combo of “off the beaten” path and “omg, I might have missed this.” Priscilla starts out warm and low key and by the end of the tour, you know she’s part of what is so special about a Tucson!

We made some interesting stops on this tour that we wouldn't have known about if we did this on our own. We will probably go back and spend some more time at the Mission San Xavier del Bac and the El Tiradito Shrine.

We had trouble with our GPS, so we got lost several times. Printed directions might have been helpful. Also, by the time we got to the Congress Hotel we could not find a place to park, so we just skipped it. I think normally Priscilla does these tours on a weekend, so rush hour traffic would not be an issue.

My husband and I took this tour at that beginning of our 2 week visit to Tucson. Priscilla was friendly and knowledgeable and took us to places the average tourist would not have found on their own. The focus was on local food and architecture and Priscilla did a good job giving a taste of both. We left with long list of places to eat. This was a unique experience!
