Our family of two adults and two teens was picked up at our hotel and driven about 40 minutes to a private ranch for our jeep tour on the southeast side of Tucson. Our guide, Kurt, was very knowledgable and showed us all the desert plants. We tasted samples of various edible cacti that he'd brought along. We were shown ancient petroglyphys and all handled his tarantula. Kurt was dressed as a cowboy with a real six-shooter and bullets on his belt. After this trip, we decided to forego the trip to the Desert Museum, since we'd learned a lot from Kurt. So if you want a cheaper way to learn about natural history, you might consider the museum. The ride was bumpy enough to make it interesting, but not enough for motion sickness.
