Overall experience was lovely. The staff are exceptionally accommodating and caring, the horses beautifully trained and the area is georgous. I hadn't been on a horse in 40 years and my adult daughter hasn't ridden since she was a child and we were both a bit apprehensive but after the first day with our excellent wrangler we were comfortable on...

Thank you for your kind review! It was wonderful having you and your daughter at the ranch, and we are looking forward to seeing you again. I am so happy that you felt comfortable with riding thanks to our excellent wrangler! We really do have the best wranglers and they prove it every day! See you soon!

The staff went beyond what was expected to make this a memorable vacation for children and adults. The food was spectacular. The horses were excellent and the wranglers led beautiful rides. Riding games for the kids (adults joined in) were the most fun. It was Arizona at its best. I would recommend Circl Z without any hesitation.

The wrangles were very knowledgeable about the horses and the history of the area as we rode. The views and rides were stunning. Loved the variation of the rides and the daily chances...

The food was excellent, the staff was personable, kind and helpful, the rooms were clean, the beds were comfortable. I can't say enough good things about our stay. I am so deeply grateful that the Nash's understand what a unique and precious ecologically important area they have and that they are committed to its preservation.

My husband and I and another married couple went to Circle Z Ranch. We had a very good time riding horses, hiking, meeting new people, eating, drinking (BYOB) and just relaxing. If you are looking for nonstop action this is not the right place for you. There is no tv or radio to distract you which is really a good...

You can begin to ride horseback at any age and learn the pleasures of experiencing some of the most spellbinding scenery in the varied habitats of the Sonoran desert at the Circle Z. The emphasis on safety and positive experience is ingrained in a rich history of this best-of-its-kind facility. All three of our visits were fantastic experiences.

We spend a week at the Circle Z with our son, daughter in law, and their two girls (7 and 9). Very hard to imagine a better week. The horse back riding experience was excellent with a remarkable variety of rides and the non-riders found a range of interesting birding areas to explore in the neighborhood of the ranch. Staff...

This is our third family dude ranch vacation. Circle Z was terrific top to bottom. Great food including freshly baked breakfast treats every day, steak night, cookouts, Mexican night and good coffee!. Comfortable cabins. Refreshing pool, pool table, fussball, ping pong. A terrific cantina where one could keep adult beverages and much on snacks. A nature walk and astronomy night....

Thank you!! Your family was a joy to have, and we are looking forward to your next visit. The nice thing about the proximity to 82 is that we are easy to get to but still seem secluded.

Pleasant staff: housekeeping, kitchen, managers and wranglers all were professionals. The horses we had were well-trained and we wanted to take both of them home. The wranglers provided several kinds of trail rides from which to choose. This was our third time and plan to return.
