Wasn't sure what to expect, and found a movie-set western town out in the middle of the desert, with plenty of "old western feel" even if a bit hokey. Setting in the middle of the magnificent mountain ranges is just beautiful. We only managed to...More

Old Tucson, the film studio and shooting location where dozens of iconic western movies and tv shows were filmed, has seen better days. Twenty years ago it was vibrant, fun, and still recognizeable as the old west. Today it's a bit tired, there's nothing really...More

Went to visit, it was ok. The kids liked the rides, the cars, train and merry go round. It was extra for the stage coach ride (which I thought that should have been included with the cost of admission). Never the less had a good...More

They do have a stage coach and a train to ride. Close to the entrance. We didn't see anything such a golf cart or anything along that line.

I'm sorry that Idon't really know how to answer. You mention 'tour' so I'm guessing you want to join one?? We just drove out, parked and went in. There is no charge for parking, and the adult entrance was $18.
