*This reviews Tanque Verde receptionists and reservations* Because I always read most (if not all the reviews on a place before arriving). Tip #1. Do not call to book while on your break... our reservation experience was a 30min disaster. Tip #2. Even the friendliest traveler can encounter attitude with the receptionists, until you begin rethinking your decision to go...

My family and I vacationed at Tanque Verde Ranch in November of 2016. All of us had a great time, and we've already contacted the ranch about returning next year. I cannot say enough good things about the ranch. We stayed in a casita on Roadrunner Ridge for 4 nights. The room was nice and very large, and the outside...

I have been regularly going 2-3x per year to these dinners. My guests and I attended on Saturday, the 12th. Andy, the country singer, was below average. The food choices were less than in the past and some dishes served to us were not properly cooked. They corrected the food problems. However, overall very disappointing.

We were met at Tuscon airport by Jeff after a long flight, we were tired but Jeff certainly lifted our spirits, he was welcoming, friendly, helpful and very informative on route to the ranch. He offered to stop off to get provisions, or take out. We got to the ranch, booked in and were taken to our room, which was...

Tanque Verde Ranch Resort was named "Best Dude Ranch in Arizona" by Dude Republic in 2012, as well as a "Top Ten Family Resort" by the Travel Channel since 2007, and a "Top Five Ranch" by Conde Nast in 2008. Tanque Verde Ranch is one of America’s old time cattle and guest ranches. 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. La Sonora Spa is the perfect place for a bit of quiet relaxation, and the kids will love all the supervised children's programs!
