Not a tour but the live performances are good. Probably even better when the founder was alive organizing it. They close when it gets to hot.

We stopped here to take photos on our way to the Longstreet Hotel. It seems like a ghost town, without being a ghost town. No-one in sight. Just a couple of white-painted buildings, reflecting the desert sun, but with a strong sense of atmosphere. Worth...More

Loved the hotel charm feels almost like living in a museum - lots of history antic furniture. Was a bit hard to learn how to operate AC which was noisy and was starting and stoping entire night. Overall great one night experience
