    Oasis Tour of Tucson is a fantastic half day tour! Tim is a super friendly and funny tour guide! He’s very knowledgeable about Mount Lemmon and Tucson in general. He knows all the great spots for taking pictures and took great photos for us as well. We had so much fun the entire time. He even added an additional stop for my son to see Biosphere 2 from the top of the mountain!! Highly recommended!!!

    Amazing tour up Mount Lemmon. Our guide Tim was fantastic, knowledgable and fun, Audio commentary was narrated by U of A experts, and we learned a lot about the different climate zones on the mountain. Highly recommend.
    We had a great day.

    Timothy was the best! He is very knowledgeable, very helpful and very friendly. He went above and beyond the call of duty to take photographs, help us along steeper tracks, and give us general information about Tucson.

    SCENIC and fun trip up Mt Lemmon!

    My boyfriend and I booked this Oasis Tour upon our arrival in Tucson. We tend to have active/adventurous vacations and normally I would not have booked such a tour, but it turned out to be AWESOME! Timothy is extremely knowledgeable about Mt. Lemmon and the Tucson area and we had a fantastic day with him. The ride was very scenic and we stopped for a number of great photo opportunities - Timothy knew all the best places. I highly recommend this tour and guide. As someone else mentioned - do not let the "audio tour" part turn you off - it is only part of the tour and actually quite interesting!
    Enjoyable and comfortable

    Fantastic half day in the mountains
    James_C, Nov 2023
    Had a day free in Tucson and this was a great way to spend it! Tour guide was Tim, and he was great fun, full of info and clearly knew the area extremely well. The meeting point was by the main entrance to Park Place Mall (north side), just a little way to the East by the big bowling pin. From there we drove up into the mountains stopping a handful of times to take in the breathtaking views. Tim had binoculars for us to look through. A few light strolls to the lookout points, but nothing strenuous. The final stop is at a ski resort town on Mt Lemmon (typically there's snow there for a couple of months in winter), with opportunities to buy snacks and souvenirs. Worth checking the Mt Lemmon temperature forecast before you leave since it's much cooler at the summit than in Tucson. All in all, a great way to see 4 different biomes (desert, grassland, woodland and forest) in just a few hours. Thanks Tim!
    Loved the saguara cactus...
