Tour Description

Tumacacori National Historical Park protects the ruins of three Spanish missions along the Santa Cruz river. Two of these missions are not open to the public, and can only be visited on a reserved tour. As a participant in this special tour, you will visit the ruined remains of the two closed missions and learn about the lives of the people who lived there.

The tour meets at the Tumacacori Visitor Center. Participants ride in a single fifteen-passenger van to Guevavi and Calabazas. At each site, a ranger or volunteer provides an interpretive walking tour. There is some walking on unpaved trails to reach the mission ruin at each site, including one section of uphill trail at Calabazas. These tours are not wheelchair accessible.

Once the tour has returned to Tumacacori, participants are invited to visit the Tumacacori Mission church and grounds, visitor center, and museum on their own, at no additional charge. A self guided tour booklet is available. Guided tours of Tumacacori are scheduled each day at 9:00am, and may also be availabale at 1:00pm inquire at the visitor center desk.
