1 day
Space Available

Tour Fare: $165

Travel with us to Borrego Springs and embark on a fascinating tour of several notable desert estates and gardens at the height of wildflower season. Sponsored by the Anza-Borrego Desert Natural History Association, the locations of these jewels are kept secret until later, but in past years this annual experience has included a tour of the James and Helen Copley estate – the former publishers of the San Diego Union-Tribune and owners of Borrego’s La Casa del Zorro Resort. The excursion typically includes a visit to a sprawling cactus garden featuring succulents from around the world set amongst a grove of native desert trees and acacias including African, Australian Willow, and Shoestring, as well as tours of other landmark gardens and homes. You’ll also enjoy an included lunch at Borrego Springs Resort and stop at the famous Dudley’s Bakery in Santa Ysabel for an opportunity to purchase fresh baked specialties and browse their wonderful gift shop.
