We drove to Casa Grande Ruins, watched the movie and then were just in time for the talk and tour. We had George Frey as our tour guide and he was sensational. He was funny and informative and we couldn't have asked for a better explanation of the ruins and how they came to be. We learnt so much and the history of the site is fascinating. Would highly recommend taking the tour as it offered facts and speculation about the interesting history of Casa Grande.

Family visits which included school age children . Park guide presentation was appreciated by all . It was interesting and informative . All staff very helpful . Worth it to take a little time to tour the museum and view video - and do guide tour . Self - tour - ok - but you will appreciate your visit much more if you watch video and listen to guide presentation .

We were visiting my mom, and looking for things to do. We did not know what to expect when we decided to visit the ruins, but it was definitely worth our time. I do not remember the name of our tour guide, but she was the best story teller and she made the ruins come alive during our time with her. Great history on the first settlements in the region.

Very impressive site. Dedicated park rangers provide free tour. Short movie. A must to get a sense of history and ancient Sonoran desert peoples in Arizona

I had to Stop in a client in Casa Grande and took the 15 mile ride to get there. I loved the history and the old architecture.
