My daughter and I went to Tanque Verde Ranch the week after the Christmas holidays to have some special time together. We are both riders, and we wanted the experience of riding in the desert, and the pictures for this resort looked lovely. The resort is very much as the pictures portray. The grounds are well-maintained, and the accommodations are...

Thank you for your comments. We are addressing our riding program issues and I appreciate your comments. With all the issues we have when it rains, it does take us some time to regroup. I can assure you that the corrals and holding pens have been scraped and cleaned along with our horses. Its an ongoing challenge for us...as you...

Our family (ages 18-88) spent a week at the Tanque Verde just after Christmas what a joy! The riders among us raved about the lope rides, one who started out as a non-rider felt the lessons moved her to a level that allowed her to enjoy the more adventurous trails. The nature program was a treat for those of us...

Great view, service, food. Met really cool and interesting people. Staff was so helpful especially to city slickers like myself. I will definitely go back. It is a fantastic place for families, business, girls weekend and even solo. Even off season there was plenty to do if the weather didn't cooperate. I love this place.

This was our 2nd visit to Tanque Verde. We spent a week there over the Christmas holidays (with my 3 teenage girls, my parents, my sister and her daughter).

We had a great experience here. There were many activities to keep the whole family busy. The staff was wonderful and catered to our every need.

We got to the Tanque Verde Ranch to have lunch but the main dining room was closed. Instead they indicated that lunch was being served in the Cottonwood area of the ranch. At the Cottonwoods they were serving burgers. I was all self serve. We each had a burger, some chips and a lemonade. There didn't seem to be anywhere...

Our extended family of 12 (ages 14-77) spent 4 nights in December 2016 at Tanque Verde and we had many terrific experiences. The guides were outstanding. All of the guides were knowledgeable and fun. We laughed together and learned a lot while relaxing. The food was really good too.

This is a family owned business operated by the same family since the 1950's. The caring relationship that the owners have with their staff shows in many ways. Everyone is friendly and welcoming, even to horse novices like ourselves. We stayed for 6 nights in early December, 2016. I wanted to take some riding lessons to improve my riding skills,...

Located on 60,000 acres of Tucson’s most breathtaking desert landscapes, nestled amongst the Rincon Mountains and adjacent to Saguaro National Park and Coronado National Forest. Established in 1868, the superb guest ranch is recognized as the last luxurious outpost of the old west providing guests with plush accommodations, unparalleled amenities and a vast array of exciting activities such as horseback riding, mountain biking, fishing and hiking.
