The town of Carefree, settled in the foothills of the Sonoran Desert amid lush terrain and ancient boulders, offers refuge from the larger cities of Phoenix and Scottsdale to the south. The neighboring town of Cave Creek is Arizona’s most unique western town offering spectacular beauty and excitement. This informative half-day tour is the perfect introduction to the towns of Cave Creek and Carefree.

An experienced guide describes the history of the region and tells the tale of how the unusual street names were created and more. The tour stops to explore the world's largest sundial in the heart of Carefree and drives by Harold's Corral in Cave Creek, home to Amanda Blake (known for her role on Gunsmoke).

Cradled in the heart of Cave Creek is a romantic Old-World Mission-style restaurant, El Encanto. Stop here for lunch and experience the sights, sounds and tastes of Mexico. Walk through the archway and feel as though you have been transported to Mexico with beautiful tile scenes, wrought iron gates and furnishings. It also has a picturesque pond, where diners famously sit along the water, under a covered patio, and observe and mingle with the playful wildlife, including ducks, turtles, owls, and an amazing blue heron.

After lunch, the tour continues with a behind-the-scenes tour of an authentic Arabian horse ranch. Scottsdale is considered by many to be the Arabian Horse capital of the world! These purebreds capture the hearts of the rich and famous and the breeding industry is filled with glamour and excitement.

This authentic ranch set in the serene Sonoran Desert, presents a great opportunity to feel the charisma and mystic of these magnificent animals. Steeped in tradition and ancient history, the Arabian Horse is considered a living work of art. As a world-renowned leader in the Arabian Horse Industry, the ranch’s beautifully manicured environment makes for an exceptional way to showcase the Arabian. You get a glimpse of the daily and long-term goals of running a successful breeding and training facility.

While the horses command your attention, your personal tour guide shares what it takes to bring one of these animals into stardom in the show ring, from daily care to long-term training. You learn about their living environments, daily grooming and exercise including swimming, health care, equipment, successful breeding programs, the maternity ward and enjoy an exciting preview. The Arabian Horse captures you with their heart, soul and presence.
