This was a great tour. Four hours was a little too long since you can no longer get off the train when they change the engine for the return trip. We loved the tour of the Copper museum, very fascinating. This part of the tour was also very long so it significantly cut into the few minutes of shopping time we were allowed.

This is a full day trip to Copper museum then Jerome and then a 4 hour train trip that should be on your "to do list". With perfect weather we enjoyed spectacular Arizona country side. Lunch provided and extra food drink including wine, i cannot fault it. Small group with our driver guide Ron, you will love this trip.

About This Deal

This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Jerome Arizona, Jerome, AZ 86331, USA

Our first major tour stop will be the historic mining town of Jerome. Mining in Jerome started in the late 1800s and over the course of its history has produced approximately 33 million tons of ore including copper and gold. During our time in this historic mining ghost town, we will explore the history that made it “the wickedest town in the West.”

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Arizona Copper Art Museum, 849 Main St, Clarkdale, AZ 86324

After our Jerome tour, we’ll visit the copper mining mecca of Clarkdale and the Arizona Copper Art Museum. Using the original schoolhouse, the Arizona Copper Art Museum tour showcases more than 5,000 unique pieces dating back to 3500 BCE. During our time at this world-class art museum, guests will explore both functional and artistic uses of this second oldest known metal on the planet. From the practical uses in-home kitchen supplies and tools to the ornate works of art used to adorn palaces and castles, the wide uses of copper are nothing short of amazing!

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Verde Canyon Railroad, 300 N Broadway, Clarkdale, AZ 86324, USA

From the Arizona Copper Art Museum, we will tour the historic Verde Canyon Railroad for a chance to enjoy incredible views of the Verde Valley. The very first tracks were put down over 100 years ago to transport local workers and ore mined from the surrounding Jerome mountains and are still in use today. The unspoiled wilderness you will tour through is a scenic and historic treasure that has left people in awe since 1911. With stunning views of the Verde Valley from either your first-class seats or your open-air viewing car, the casual elegance of the train allows guests to discover the heritage uniqueness of the landscape and its diverse ecosystem. From the stunning 1,800-foot tall red rock canyon walls as we get closer to Sedona to the consistently rippling waters of the Verde River, the scenery explored on this four-hour journey is truly breathtaking. As they say, “it’s always a good day when you’re on a train.”

Duration: 4 hours
