Our decision to visit Circle Z was arrived at after much online research. After reading the reviews, we settled on Circle Z with very high expectations. Circle Z exceeded every expectation we had. We wanted a place where our family of four (two girls ages 7 & 8) could relax and get away from our normal lives and the crazy... More

This was my first visit and it definitely will not be my last. Circle Z Ranch was very fun, comfortable, excellent horses, gracious staff and enjoyable guests. My week was filled with great riding, good conversations and delicious meals. Plus the Ranch offered special events during the rides along with evening astronomy programs and nature presentations. It was so relaxing... More

I've been to a lot of places around the world (including two other dude ranches) but none can compare to the hospitality, attention to detail, extraordinary food, and all-around excellence that the folks at Circle Z deliver to each and every guest.They have perfected heaven on earth. It's not glitzy, it's not artificial; it's pure, simple, wholesome, and authentic. The... More

Every time we come back from Circle Z Ranch we say 'this is the best trip yet'. Well, this was the bestest trip ever. You just cannot say enough good things about the staff, wranglers, horses, food and the wonderful beds in the cottages. The food is wonderful. Everything you could want including killer desserts. George and his crew do... More

I traveled to Circle Z Ranch for the first time in January 2015. I don't know what I was expecting, but Circle Z Ranch exceeding all my preconceived notions of what constitutes a dude ranch. This family operated ranch is a horse lovers paradise in Southern Arizona. I felt welcomed from my first step on their property. The staff is... More

It is a kind of ranch that is for real riders, everybody enjoy being on a horse and after a few days, after creating lots of friends we are having lots of fun. George and Jennie (the managers) are SUPER and always smily. The trails are gorgeous... More

I have spent two weeks every January at the Circle Z Ranch for the past 15 years. I go with my best friend to ride in picture perfect terrain, on very well trained horses for riders of all levels. The wranglers are amazing, bubbling in personality and warmth every day. Every ride is unique, gorgeous and inspiring. The Nash and... More

There are no words to truly describe how happy we are with the week of celebration our family of 20 enjoyed at Circle Z Ranch in December. The staff was exemplary in anticipating our needs and accommodating the multiple comings and goings. As always, the living arrangements and housekeeping were excellent. The food for all ages and appetites was delicious... More

The General Manger George Lorta was away for a few days so the turned the management over to Michael and his... More

Spent a week at Circle Z in December 2014. Can't say enough about the ranch and staff. Their goals were to ensure that you enjoyed yourself and enjoyed the beauty of southern Arizona, and they exceeded their goals. Exceptional staff, great horses, exceptional riding, exceptional scenery, exceptional lodging, exceptional food, etc. We knew all staff by name and they knew... More
