Experience the History & Make it Personal

Church History Tours From Arizona

Legacy of Faith Tours was created because there are many Church History expedition organizations, but none from Arizona. We wanted to create an opportunity for those from Arizona to experience the historical sites of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in a personal way.

“The Legacy of Faith tour is an amazing trip. Every detail was taken care of and we just sat back and enjoyed the journey through church history with an amazing guide. Rinda Updike did a great job arranging a comprehensive trip that included every church history site from Palmyra to Liberty Jail. She was a fantastic, knowledgeable guide that enthusiastically created memorable moments at each high-light on the trip. The Legacy of Faith tour is a wonderful investment in a family memory.”

“This “Legacy of Faith” tour was fantastic. Our tour guide, Rinda has a bubbly, happy, always positive attitude and the knowledge that she has about Joseph Smith, the other Saints and the history of each area is amazing. We were captivated with every detail. This whole tour was organized by the tour company. They scheduled our flights, made all of the hotel reservations, provided the transportation, and scheduled our appointments to attend the Palmyra and Nauvoo Temples. We were able to visit many sacred sites and we could feel what the Pioneers must have felt living in the early beginnings of the Church through our guide’s knowledge. Our driver was great, we never worried about our safety & we loved his quick-minded humor. Never a dull moment. The other wonderful thing we loved about this tour- – – We live in Arizona and it was great to start and end our tour in Arizona. Our testimonies have grown tremendously with this tour. We highly recommend this tour. You will love it and you will love Rinda.”

“Over the years I’ve been to a few church history sites, yet I have always wanted to take a more extensive tour that included more of them. That became a reality with Legacy of Faith Tours. I did not have to worry about a thing- all of the logistics were taken care of for me – and I was able to sit back and enjoy an amazing trip from Harmony, PA at the Priesthood Restoration site all the way to Liberty Jail. I learned so much from our knowledgeable guide, Rinda Updike, and enjoyed how she led with enthusiasm and passion. This is a trip that I highly recommend and will always remember.
