Meeting Information

Below are the activities to the revised spouse/guest tour.

BUEN PROVECHO! Mexican Cuisine Tour + Shopping at OLD TOWN ARTISANS

One of the high lights of Tucson is experiencing our Sonoran influenced cuisine. This tour will give your guests the opportunity to visit a few of the community’s long standing proprietors. Guests will go behind the scenes of a local panderia (tortilla and pastry bakery). The smell of the fresh baked breads and tortillas is overwhelming, but wait until you taste them! Afterwards, your guests will visit a culturally authentic grocery store. Here they will learn about and sample various produce and cheeses that are commonly used in authentic Mexican dishes. Guests will then learn how to make the popular seafood dish ceviche, all while sipping on an ice cold cerveza or margarita. Finally, satisfy your sweet tooth with a fresh fruit respado. This tour really is as yummy as it sounds.
This tour is approximately 5 hours and is inclusive of round trip transportation, admissions where applicable, lunch, bottled water on board, and a JW Marriott Starr Pass Destination Services Guide throughout. This tour is a rain or shine event.  $85 pp
